I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day.  Hard to believe after all the craziness leading up to it, it is now all done for another year.  Why does it get so crazy!!! We had a lovely Christmas Day though.  Church Christmas Eve and time with the family for Christmas Lunch.  It was nice and relaxing.

Today I thought I would share some special hand-made cards we received for Christmas.  They are all so gorgeous and it is always great to see new ideas.  I won’t go in to too much details of the cards.  If you want to know more about them or a closer look just let me know.

This first group is from my close Demonstrator friends.  How lucky am I!


These 2 are from some special blog readers who have now become good friends.  The one on the left is from Lynda.  Thanks Lynda for your continued loyalty and encouraging comments.  Isn’t this a clever way of using ‘Lovely as a Tree’.  That set is so versatile.  The one on the right is from my lovely Blog friend Patti from the the US.  How cute is that snowman???  It has been lovely to get to know Patti over this past year.  Thanks for always stopping by Patti and encouraging me along the way. 🙂


This next group is from some of my friends.  Some of them are from customers that I can now call lovely friends.  Aren’t they all so gorgeous??


I hope you might feel inspired by this lovely mix.  I love looking at them and touching them.  They bring a smile to my face.

Thanks for stopping by.  Come and visit again soon,

I was playing around with the Expressions Thinlets the other week and created 2 cards.   This first one was CASED from Kris McIntosh.  You can see her original card here.   I just changed the colours on this to blue where she used red.


I have used the new Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder too.  I love these colours this Christmas.  I think I have said that before today!!

For this next one I am seeking your help.  I am really not happy with this.


I have used the lovely Designer Series Paper ‘Season of Syle’ and layered this on Old Olive and then Cherry Cobbler.  I used a strip of the new Burlap Ribbon seen in the Holiday Catalogue.  I cut the Merry from Gold Foil Sheets in the Holiday Catalogue.  That’s all OK BUT it is missing something!  I tried adding some small ornaments and played around for a bit with other things.  What do you think???  Is it missing something?  What should I add?  I would love to know your thoughts.  I will try some of your suggestions and post an updated version soon.

Thanks for stopping by.  I love your visits.

School Holidays have finished now and it is back to school tomorrow.  I can’t believe one more term left of school for the year and one more week before the HSC for Josh.  YIKES!

Take care and visit again soon,
