My Sister's Christmas Card

I'm disappointed with the photographs of this card I made Tracy as it doesn't show the richness of the colours nor the sparkle of the perfect pearls in the panels of handmade paper.


I love making these multi panel cards, they give the recipient so much to see. They are time consuming to make & it is always advisable to make enough handmade paper to begin before doing any stamping. On the back panel I embossed with a cuttelbug folder to add interest.
All stamps are Crafty Individuals.

Boxing Day

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas and got nice things to create with for the new Year. I'm currently staying with my Dad in Immingham. I spent most of Xmas Day in bed poorly, my tummy was really not happy, but it is lovely & warm here at dad's and Im far better today. The snow is thankfully nearly all gone as it caused havoc with travelling on the trains.
I had to get a new mobile phone on Xmas Eve as mine kept going blank on me which proved awkward as I kept getting stranded at the station, trains running up to 40 minutes late & I need to know I can contact work & warn them. My phone is over 5 years old so my new one is quite modern & taken me a day to work out. The good part is I'm now on a contract which will work out far cheaper for me, the phone was free & it has two built in cameras so no excuse for not taking photos when I'm out & about. I am terrible for leaving my camera at home & missing the perfect shots!! I have work to share once I get home & can access the pictures on my own computer.
So for now, I wish you another fabulous day eating festive fayre & playing with your new toys :)

Middle of December....

and I can't believe I haven't blogged!!!!
To be honest I have been very busy at work & the trains have not been running to time so once I get home I am too busy with chores to upload my photos. So here are a few cards. I only made cards for family & very close friends. Time is not something I have in abundance right now.
The first card is for Audrey, it was her birthday the first week of the month.
The rest are my Christmas cards. I will show my sister's card another day as I need to resize all the pictures of it.
