Merry Christmas!!!

Hi everyone!  I just want to take the opportunity to wish everyone who stops by a very Merry Christmas and to thank all of you who have become followers and an extra special thank you to those of you who have left me comments this past year - I do so enjoy reading them!

So sorry that I haven't been blogging as much recently - I'll try to do better next year!!  I've still got loads of Christmas cards to show you so you may find that I post a few of them up over the next couple of weeks!

This particular card was one that I made for The Craft Barn's September Extravaganza using one of the fantastic Gorjuss Girls stamps!  The background around the stamp was created using a Katzelcraft flourish stamp and a Stampendous snowflake and for the background of the card I used the Papermania Snowflake embossing folder along with that same flourish stamp.  The snowflake embellishments are a mixture of a Woodware snowflake punch, a Martha Stewart Glacial Snowflake punch and a Marianne Design Creatables die.

The image as you've probably already guessed was coloured using Copic markers and the background around her was done using my Watercolour Resist technique with the markers. (See the December issue of Craft Stamper!)  All products used on this card came from The Craft Barn.

Have a great Christmas everyone and once again thank you for following my blog and leaving me wonderful comments - I truly appreciate all your support.

Hi Kay,

May your Christmas be merry & bright!

Love the card. Just browsing while summoning up the energy to do / prep some of the side dishes for the Christmas meal tomorrow. I had everything planned then nasty mr flu and mrs chest infection paid a visit. Now I'm dosed up with antibiotics & wishing I had another week! C'est la vie!

Nick, bless him, did the food shopping and will probably still be traumatised by the experience this time next year lol!

Have a lovely time, hugs, Pauline xx

Hi Kay
I hope you had a really lovely Christmas and thank you so much for your wishes. Sorry I've taken awhile to get round, the time has just flown and we've been full of family until today so no blogging!!!!
I love your gorjuss girl, she's lovely. It'll be nice to get onto Spring colours now won't it to banish these Winter blues.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year, I hope 2011 is a good one for you.
Hugs Lisax

Hi Pauline,

I do hope that you managed to enjoy your Christmas despite feeling poorly! Are you feeling better now?

Hope you're liking the slightly warmer weather!!
