Hey Mr Snowman!


I wish you all a peaceful one and a healthy and Happy New Year.

 Thank you for all your love and support this past year. It is all so very much appreciated and never taken for granted.

Here is my last |Christmas card of the year. 

A special one for my son and future DIL over here in the UK. The other son is basking in 24 degree heat in Brisbane with two very excited children who are hopefully fast asleep waiting to wake their mum and Dad early so they can see if Santa has been!

I sort of cased a sample I have seen for this PInk INk snowman and I was quite pleased how he turned out.I heat embossed the snowman and the branches an used oxides to shade my background. Copics for the actual colouring and a few tiny punched snowflakes to finish. The sentiment of course was computer generated.

All it takes now is to wish each and everyone of my lovely cyber friends, once again a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year. Thank you for stopping by.

See you after the festivities..!!

Happy Christmas

 Hello friends.

I hope this finds you safe, well and ready for Christmas. I won't rabbit on as I know you will be busy...and I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by.

Here is my card all made from Uniko products.

This card apart from the base card is all made from offcuts (large snippets) and from small snippets for the holly, berries and sentiments, so I am whizzing to the playground to see everyone! The background is a Uniko stencil.

Ok friends, take care....not long to go till the big day now!

 Hello friends! 

I hope you are all well, cosy and safe! Thank you so much for popping by and to those that left me comments on my last post...Thank know you make my day!

NOT a Christmas card this time. It was my future DIL birthday recently and I made her this card as she is horse mad.....she has one called Tilly! ...and she is a qualified riding you might see the relevance of the card. She is also a big fan of Thelwell.....I have to admit to not getting all the quips as it were! Riding has never been something I have ever got into.

So here we go......

and the inside...

The images and backing papers are all from an old Crafters Companion magazine CD and I made the small rosette with the same papers using a Tim Holtz die I have had in my stash for ages.The personalised message on the front was done on the PC by taking the mage into a graphics program...are you impressed?...I certainly!! (took me a while though).

Becky was highly delighted with her card thank goodness.....and as they clip Tilly themselves she thankfully doesn't look like this

I hope you are all well on with your Christmas preparations and I really do appreciate you taking time to pay me a visit when time is so precious. Thanks again.. Blogland seems a lot quieter these days due to Instagram, Pinterest etc...but I like to feel that bloggers are my friends that take their time to spend with me as I do with them..... 'Mwah.'...... and that's what makes blogging worthwhile!

See you soon..take care of yourself
