Christmas JOY.....



Its been just over a week since my last post but we've been away with friends on the Isle of Wight for a week on  pre-Christmas break which was fabulous.

My Christmas cards this year are going to be very quick and easy and also like a lot of people I am cutting down on hand crafted cards purely because of the postal charges..

I've made this card using paper from my stash...dotty Embossing folder and Memory Box Alphabet letters and for the 'O' I've used one of baubles from the Stampin Up 'Christmas Collectables' set and SU border punch.

I will get around to your blogs to see what you've been up to but I'm afraid the washing and ironing has to come first..lOl..lOl...

I love the colours and design of your fab Christmas card, Anne.

Pleased to hear you had a lovely break.

I'm trying to make all my own Christmas cards, (don't have too many...thankfully), but keeping the ones I need to post as flat as possible xx

Welcome back home Anne, and a wonderful card to be seen too. I don't post out Christmas cards anymore , a phone call is sufficient now days for me...life is too busy and I don't have to worry about the postage....love the simplicity but beauty of your card.xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Glad you had a good break Anne. Beautiful card. I'm afraid I do not make Christmas cards. I buy them from the Cancer Shop but even at that I will be hand delivering quite a few.

Glad you've found a little crafting time between all the washing & ironing! lol A very different card to your normal, but a great Q&E card which fits the bill.
