Seasons Greetings & Merry Christmas

 Hi Friends

Firstly I must Thank each and every one of you who left me a message on my last post...THANK YOU!

You are the reason that I carry on blogging and your friendship and support is so much appreciated.

Ok time for a card or two even.............

On a sort out in the craft room I unearthed some card blanks that go way back! I am a mission to use........... and here are the results using a couple of lovely olive green pearlised ones.

An embossing folder that I think may have come with a Crafters Companion magazine last year (not sure on that one) and an old C C sentiment die cut in mirri card.

I coloured the corner holly leaves with copics and as I had no red pearls for the holly, white ones were treated to the copics too.

.and here is a Merry one in a different colour way! 

I am pleased with how these turned out...batched a couple more to use up the cards (smile) and there we go!

Which do you prefer?

I hope you are all keeping well wherever you are and staying safe amid all these rising cases. I am still wearing my mask when I venture out here in the UK although it is not law..........I think I am very much in the minority though.Awaiting the call for a booster jab very soon!

Wishing a Happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate it.

Catch you all again soon when I have some upcycled Christmas cards to share with you.

Merry Christmas

 Hi Friends...well I hope you still are! Its been a good while since I blogged but I have kept peeking at yours as you will know if I left you a comment.

I hope this finds you all safe and well.

I have been making a few Christmas cards...sporadically............ and trying to use up some existing stash...I have tons of base guessed it, never the size I have in mind. Antway sorting through I found these very old embossed ones with 'Merry Christmas' ...and here is what I did with them.............

An old but favourite wooden backed stamped from Hobbyart stamped in grey and a liberal amount of Glamour Dust. 

Yeah how quick was that? Yes... quicker than the thought of what to do in the first why didn't I use them before???

Sorry the sparkle doesn't show up well on the photos.

Sunshine here today after lots of rain and its much colder...I hope it is a long while till we see the white stuff on the ground though.

Hopefully I will see you again soon.

Thank you so much if you have popped by . It is good to know you are all still out there, blogland seems quiet, but I so appreciate my cyber to you all.

Take care.
