Christmas has come and gone .......

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends - celebrating, eating everything you shouldn't, watching kids tearing through the wrapping paper as they unwrap each present in anticipation !

I had a lovely time over Christmas with family - Christmas Day was spent quietly relaxing with my partner, Boxing Day with my daughter and my youngest grandson (5 yrs), Saturday with my eldest grandson (14 yrs) and yesterday with one of my sisters. It was wonderful to catch up with everyone though I'm still not finished - have still to see other family members and friends over this next week!

I was very late with my Christmas cards this year but here is the card I made for my sister and some others which were the last ones I sent out to friends.

I CASEd this design from someone else's blog and I apologise for not mentioning that person here but I can't remember exactly where I saw it. (If you are reading this and it's your original design, please let me know.)

SU supplies: DS Papers - Wintergreen / Ink - Sage Shadow / Stamps - Season of Joy / Ribbon - Soft Sky stitched. Extras - Silver brads.

These cards are non-Stampin' Up! cards but I hope you like them as well.

The image on this card was stamped twice and one of the images was cut out and layered onto the base with 3D foam dots.

The red glitter frame around the main image was made using double-sided tape and after removing the paper from the tape, I sprinkled the glitter over the sticky strips.

A red bow & red flower embellishment add the finishing touches.

This card was made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and peel-off stickers for the stars and corners. I love pastel colours for Christmas and thought that pink and silver would look realy nice together.

This one below has punched snowflakes and self-adhesive gems, white ric-rac ribbon and the greeting is from a sheet of rub-ons.

This next one has some SU items on it.

This one uses the SU DS paper from the Dashing set and I stamped the background with the Poinsettia stamp from the Season of Joy set.

The trees were cut out using a Sizzix die and I added a rub-on greeting and red satin ribbon to finish off.

Well, I hope you like this little collection. I am planning to add a slide show of my cards for you to look at so once I get it up and running, you will be able to see what other creations I have made over time.

Thanks for visiting - 'bye for now. Please come back again soon - I have more to show you!
