I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

Last Years Christmas Card and Showcase

Hi  and good morning to all my lovely blog friends. I hope all is well with you and your lovely families.
Today's card is a Christmas Card I made last year for my family.

It was another quickie as I'm always pushed for time making my Christmas Cards. Basically I leave it too late and then have to rush. The year before I made lovely ones with the letters XMAS in a book form. They came out superb but silly me I forgot too photograph them, in all the hurry of Christmas, and as you have read I have Six grown up children so you can imagine how long it took me. I made them all the same but in different colours for each family.
Well now to today's card. It is my favourite size 8x8 with Kanban Card stock I bought from C and C.
With just a few other little embellishments of my own . I really did like this card stock and the sentiments.
I hope you like it.
Next I'm showcasing my sister Wendy's lovely jewellery she makes. She gave me this necklace when
I last visited her in South Wales. She actually lives in the same town as our lovely Lindyloo isn't that
a coincidence. I lived there for many years myself. Till I lost my first husband to the big C, and moved
to Kent after meeting and marrying my wonderful Tony. I hope you all have a really great crafty day.
Thank you for stopping by.

Hi sweetie,
Your card is lovely. I know what you mean about Christmas cards, I always seem to be rushing and I wish I could be better at it and plan properly. Don't know why I do it.
Your sisters necklace is amazing, again. What a very talented lady she is. I wish I could do something like this. I may have to get you to ask her for some tips when I have some freetime.
Hugs Linda x

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It's a very easy on the eyes which
makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit
