Christmas Post

Hi Friends

I do hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas whatever you were doing and if it involved travelling that you managed to safe. We had a quiet one and unfortunately hubby and I have succumbed to one of the Christmas virus's doing the rounds, so not been feeling at our best.

However I have the card I made for my hubby for Christmas to share with you and another on a similar vein for my Mum. Then no more Christmas - on to birthdays and a hopeful Spring around the corner, though I do think we will have to have some snow first don't you?

So for my final post (Christmas or otherwise) for 2013 - here we are.


The paper was from LOTV, one of their 8x8 pads -Krafty Christmas. I love this pad and it goes so well with  Kraft card. The stamp is Stampendous Christmas Post which I stamped with Versamark and then embossed with detail white powder. I added frontage around the edge in white and a hint of blue and then mounted it on cream card. The snowflake  is Spellbinders Create a Flake 3, the deer from Spellbinders Frosty Forms and the label is Spellbinders Fancy Tags. A touch of glamour dust in various places and a bit of inking on the reindeer!
The wooden holly embellishment came (I think) from Hobbycraft and I edged it with a white pen though it does not show on the photograph.

The one for Mum is very similar, same techniques but I used a bit of pink frontage ( though you can't tell) instead of the blue. I offset the layering and I think the snowflake may have  a bit of Spellbinders Create a Flake 4 in it. The label this time is Spellbinders Ribbon Banners.

Right that's it folks, but I would just like to say a big Thank You to everyone who takes the time out to visit my humble little blog and make it all worthwhile. It is so much appreciated. Without you I would not continue to blog and have the chance to make friends with such nice people.

I hope you all enjoy the New Year whatever way you 'see it in' and wherever you are in the world. Keep safe and we will chat again next year! and before you ask -NO resolutions for me this time then I can't break them!!
Wishing you all a Peaceful, Happy and Healthy 2014.

Crafty love and hugs

  1. Fabulous cards Carole, just having a quick look... Haven't been on my computer for a while, but now it is back in my craft room, as my lovely family went back to Germany yesterday:( ... I'm going to miss them, but it was rather hectic with 8 of us in the house for last 5 days lol!! Hopefully I will be able to get back to some kind of blogging and crafting next week lol!!... Wishing you and yours a great New Year, and hope you are both feeling a lot better:)..
