christmas wishes

yes another christmas card ~still have panic in my eyes ~running out of days now..and got to write them and get them sent...and my first card has arrived from a crafting friend emma !!! thankyou so much emma!!

used the wonderful sketch by CATHY over on:~




used basicgrey xmas papers, suger nellie "hello little robin" stamp, coloured with promarkers, papermania word die, nestabilities circle dies, sizzix corner die, magnolia swirl die, flower from my stash, finished with stickles glitter.

well after yesterday (see post below) xmas tree is up and lit.....husband tried to get the old lights to luck so he went out to tesco`s and got some very, very tiny lights....only when i opened the box they were icicle lights(hang down) they are now hanging at our front window!!! paul headed up to homebase before they closed..and at last i have sparkling white fairy lights on my tree and it is decorated..or as us x~windowdressers say ~dressed!!!..and seeing as i was a window dresser for 12 years i have decorated hundreds and hundreds of christmas trees!!! but i still just love doing it!!! back to some card making.....

Hi nessy, a wonderful selection of cards since my last visit. Love the swirl on this one - I've just ordered myself a few new dies (got to wait until Christmas tho -for now they have been sent to the North Pole aka the back bedroom!).

Glad you got your lights sorted, we put our tree up today. A bit stressful with an excited 4.5 yr old, but she was very impressed with the final results!

Gorgeous card Nessy and such a pretty image, fab choice of dotty papers too! I've cheated this year and made a batch of CAS Christmas cards, it's too hard making so many individually designed cards that are all different...I only do special ones for family now :) Donna ♥ x
