Last of Christmas

Well folks I cant believe it is 11 days since I last posted...and I haven't really done any new crafting to post yet, so I thought I would share the last of the Christmas makes from the card class I go to. We are not due to start again till February so it gives me the chance to play catch up.

Life has been busy with various things...a lot of sorting still which is slowly being crossed off the list that hubby comprised when he retired! ....and ....a new computer thrown into the mix which is taking up time setting up etc (I am sure you know what I mean). Talking of sorting.... the craft room is still an ongoing 'sort'...a slow job a bit at a a time. It's on the decorate list too this that will be this space!
How do two people manage to accumulate so much stuff?... we are trying to be ruthless..and have yet to start on the loft!...sigh.

Anyway along with a neck that objects strongly to my looking down, (hence restricts the crafting time) and all the other jobs... that's my reason for my absence as it were.....

Here are the shares (sorry for waffling)...I think you might need a cuppa it's photo heavy!

This one uses Tim Holtz dies......

 and so does this one....

the snowflake is a Sue Wilson and the bauble Spellbinders...not sure about the words

and the co-ordinating tag is also a Sue Wilson die.

 Not certain on the origin of this stamp...probably Hobbyart

and this stag is a part use of a Pink Ink stamp.

Lastly a shaker all those snowmen but I am afraid i do not know the stamp origin.

Thank you if you are still with me!...and hats off to those of you still making Christmas cards. It seems months ago now and it's only one! It is my intention (note the word here) to get making early for this year!

Thank you for spending time with me..always s much appreciated and thank you too if you leave a comment.

Till next time..

  1. I am still with you! And am still making Christmas cards too!
    Play along at CAS Christmas and you'll at least have 12 done by December!!!
    Great selection tho Carole, toss up between the wintry scene and the TH dies for my top pick! xx
    PS - Good luck with the continued sort out!

  2. Wow Carol, what a bumper selection of lovely cards, if I had to choose a favourite it would have to be the first, always love a scene.


  3. Wow Carole!!! A fabulous collection of gorgeous cards. I have been trying to sort out my craft room. The trouble is, I now don't know where I have put some of my things!! So annoying!! Hugs, Carol S.xx

  4. Hi Carole

    What a fabulous collection of cards .. .. did you do all of those in one session?

    They are all wonderful but I am particularly drawn to card four - great layout and colour .. .. and the words you don't know about are beautiful! Might have to try and track those down!

    Sounds like you are having fun with the "list" .. .. I wonder if one will get started here? Only 28 more working days to go at this end!

    Love Jules xx

  5. You might not be doing much crafting at the moment but you were certainly busy before christmas! All these cards are amazing, especially love the first one with the super winter scene. I don't like 'sorting out' as when I finally get rid of something, I ended up needing it! xx

  6. I hate sorting things... Love it once it's done though... We did the loft last year and found 4 wasps nests! All were empty thankfully. I desperately need my craft room doing too but no sooner have I sorted one cupboard another gets filled... It isn't going to happen soon! Beautiful creations here Carole... Love them all and honestly I am all done with making Christmas stuff till next Oct/Nov! Have a good week!

  7. Wow I like them all..what a great group of projects!!

    And yes I have been sorting always takes so much time to decide what to keep and whats to go!!

  8. Sounds like you are having a super busy time and a busy time ahead too! Don't overdo it, we need you making more gorgeous cards. I'm aiming to clear out the garage, again! Every time it gets cleared it just seems to fill up again!!

    Everything is getting back to business as usual here, thanks for your kind words, liz xx
