No more xmas cards, although I have loved making all the xmas cards they are all now stamped, sealed and hopefully delivered.
Nice to do something different. I love the sketch this week over on 2 sketches 4 you, and at first thought that's an easy one, when I came to make it, that was not so, and after much thought came up with this from basicgrey archaic.
Thank you for all your lovely comments.
Merry Christmas to you all.

I not making any more Xmas cards this year and that's final. So I thought I would make a handbag card from the kit that I bought from the NEC in November by Craft Works Cards every thing except the ribbon is from the kit even the black zip toggle . This kit is just great value for just £10. Sorry the photo is not too good the light here is just not good enough for a decent photo.

Well here is the last page this year, actually that's a fib because I haven't done November yet, too busy making xmas cards last month. This was Grace earlier in the year, we only had one day of snow and that was rather thin and was soon gone by the time she had made her snowman the snow had nearly all gone, anyway she had lots of fun throwing snowballs at me and her Grandad. The papers are from HOTP, I punched the snowflakes from glitter paper and the letters are foam thickers.
We put up the decorations yesterday as we are busy next weekend, we are having visiter's my nephew and his girlfriend from Holland are coming on the 6th for a few days.
It rained all day yesterday but today it is sunny, so I can put the little lights on the two bushes at my front door.
December is also both my kids birthday not kids really.. as Stephen will be 38 on the 12th and Nicola 34 on the 20th. Cards already made and prezzies bought and wrapped. just as well I make the cards myself now as the shops are full of xmas cards it seems you're not allowed to have a Birthday in Dec, or Jan either.
I am making my Dec calendar page today, never did get around to doing Nov's too busy making xmas card. i will post it later today if the sun is still shining, it is so hard to get a good picture now adays with the dark days.
