Christmas Greetings

Good morning all.

Well, only one sleep now 'til the big day!!  This post is being added to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a blessed New Year.

We are on our way to have a break with all our family so are really looking forward to that.

I will be in touch when we return, so until then "May you all know God's blessings in a very special way."
It is a wonderful time of the year as we celebrate the birth of our Saviour, what an amazing Christmas present that was many years ago.

With love to all and do travel safely,

Kaisercraft's Tropicana Cards

Hello again to all my blogging friends.
Well, Christmas is fast approaching now and it will be so lovely to be with our families again.
All the break-ups are behind us, so we are almost in holiday mode!
 I share a birthday with another friend, so a group of us are going out for lunch tomorrow to celebrate the occasion. When one gets to my age, it would be nice if we could just forget all about these milestones - anyway, we can be so thankful for the years that God has given us to enjoy!.
Now, these are the last of the cards which I have done for the Kaisercraft Workshop Magazine, for December.
It is a collection which is quite different for me but I could imagine if you have been to Tropical Islands or know someone who has been, it would be very appropriate. See what you think ladies!

Does it make you want to go where it is warmer?
It is bitterly cold here today after having had a very hot day yesterday. We hope for an improvement tomorrow. The weather is so unpredictable lately!
Hope you have enjoyed seeing what I have been busy doing and that you will maybe get some ideas for your projects. I'm actually on holiday from now on, for this year, as far as making cards!! Dare say I will be getting itchy fingers before too long!

Happy crafting to you all, many blessings and if travelling, do drive safely.

Secret Admirer Cards.

Hello there my blog friends.
As promised in my previous post, I will add another of Kaisercraft's ranges that I so enjoyed working with, being another one of their three that they brought out for the December Workshop Magazine. Liz tells me it is her " all time " favourite and I have to agree - the colours are just fabulous, very bright and cheery!

This is a  template I bought from Sara, at Cardmaking Paradise.

Don't you agree the collection, being Secret Admirer, is very Springlike and has a happy feel?
All from me today ladies, hope you enjoy and get some ideas that you can use for your projects.
Thanks so much to all who check out my blog and also for the lovely comments that you leave - I really do appreciate you all. Do click on the photos for a clearer image.

Happy crafting. ( I've been told today that it's fourteen days 'til Santa arrives) so it doesn't leave us many days to get all the all the pre Christmas bits and pieces done!! Trust it's all going well at your place!

May you know God's blessing,

Cards With Forget-me-not, Kaisercraft

Good morning to all my blogging friends, and what a lovely morning it is.
We had a fabulous day, on Saturday, at Artfull Crafts, it being the Christmas Celebration day. Thirty three ladies were there and it was lovely seeing many of my special friends.
Now, I am going to share the cards I made for the Kaisercraft Workshop Magazine, for December, with  the Forget-me-not collection. I do love this range but then I do say it about most, don't I!! The designers just seem to get better and better and all their collections are gorgeous!

Well ladies, isn't it a lovely colour range? Navy, mustard with apricot. Using the collectables makes card making so much easier and quicker, with having them already cut out.
As Kaisercraft are now bringing out three collections a month, it has kept me rather busy but I do enjoy it! I will share the next two, for this month, when I do future blog posts. Do click on the photos to get clearer images.
I have had the responsibility of preparing for our patchwork Christmas dinner, so that is the next event on my calender! It all keeps one young!! Well, I like to tell myself so!

Happy crafting to you all and many blessings at this busy time of the year.
