A few more?

Hi everyone...thank you for popping by at this very busy time of year. Your visits cheer me and I do so appreciate the lovely comments you leave me.....fabulous cyber friends......that's what I have.

I have been in the craft room, but sadly nothing I can share yet, so that leaves me to show you a few more of the cards made at class. The designs of course are down to the crafty duo (Sue and Carol)..with the odd bit added later at my discretion.

I do enjoy making cards that I probably would not make usually (if you know what I mean). It also gives us the chance to use stamps and dies that we do not have in our stash. That can soon be remedied as  the ones you really like and are current are sourced and added very quickly!!!

Well last weekend I celebrated 21 (again) and this weekend it's hubby's turn!...after that we can concentrate on Christmas. I think that's why I never feel organised at this time of year,,,birthdays get in the way.!
We visited Castle Howard near York last Saturday. the house is all decorated in the theme of the 12 days of Christmas...stunning! It was designed by Charlotte LLoyd Webber...I wonder if she is related to Andrew? to google there.

OK friends...time to press on with the day. I hope all your Christmas plans are on schedule. I actually think the best part of Christmas is the planning...the actual day always seems a bit of an anti climax  when it arrives.

Till next week....keep busy!!

  1. These are all fabulous Carole, especially the last one. May not be you designs but you've put your own twist on them xx

  2. Lovely selection of cards and oh my, those little jumpers are the sweetest. I hope you had a nice birthday and that your husband enjoys his. Have fun and take care x

  3. Another gorgeous collection of cards Carole. My fave is the last one with the robins and tree. Love it! Both of my children are before Christmas. Daughter is on 30th of this month and my son is on 4th December. Not so bad now as they are both in their 40s!! Hugs, Carol S.xx

  4. Wonderful designs and great cards I go to a craft group and am often out of my depth especially with messy inking but its good to do different. Castle Howard sounds great its years since I've been there. I've started the mad Christmas stuff how did I ever find time to go to work. Sorry I've not been around much hubby has not been well this year so crafting time is limited as we seem to have loads of hospital appointments Hoping that 2019 is much better for us Love and hugs Carole x

  5. Belated birthday wishes!! And happy birthday to hubby too! What a super array of cards here Carole... I really love that Christmas tree on your last card, especially with those adorable robins! I hope you have a great weekend... Stay warm!

  6. Hi Carole
    Fabulous selection of cards... can't choose a fave ...
    Hugs Sylvie xx

  7. What a productive class you attended, Carole! These are all sensational and great Christmas inspiration! It's been a while since this post so you must still be beavering away on your own cards. I finally finished mine so now I can go visiting again at long last! (I agree with you about the fun being in the planning!) 🎄Happy Holiday Hugs, Darnell
