 Hello friends...and huge apologies for my bad blogging but here I am now.

Life took over amidst the wedding and my significant birthday and time ran away for me resulting a very few handmade cards this year. Yes I know my New year Resolution for 2023 went completely out of the window didn't it.! (a card a week)..Maybe next year? I'm not promising this time round as shoulder surgery could be looming which will put paid to quite a bit.

One special card I have managed to make for Andrew and Becky, based on a similar one by 'John Next Door' and his dies. I can share now as they wont peek at my blog...yes you are right last minute so will be giving tomorrow (head hung in shame again!)

Apologies ( I seem to be doing a lot of that) for the photo, the light has been terrible here the past couple of days.

Behind the Happy and the Christmas is gold mirri card...not so obvious against the wood. Word dies and the mistletoe are 'John next Door' and the berries are tiny pearls with a black dot from a sharpie pen. The tiny gold bow is from a Lisa Horton freebie on similar lines.

The card is bright white though it looks cream on the photo.

So that's it for this year folks...another year beckons and I hope it doesn't whizz past as fast as this one seems to have.

Thank you to each and everyone of you who have visited my blog and left me encouraging comments this year. They are all so much appreciated .

I wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year and for those of you who for whatever reason are finding it hard, I wish you the peace and strength to see it through.

Here's to a crafty 2024! everyone! Cheers! 

Love Carole xx
