Merry Christmas Darling :-) .. and Happy Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas everyone - hope you are having a wonderful day and keeping warm.
I had a bit of a last minute cardmaking session on Christmas Eve, so it was already too late to photograph them until Christmas Day morning ... these are DEFINITELY my last Chrimstmas cards of 2010!!

I would like to start by showing the Christmas card I gave to my dear husband ... making it on Christmas Eve is a way of working that started a few years ago due to last minute panic, and has now become something of a tradition in our house.

Main image: Lili of the Valley "James the Bear", coloured with Promarkers, and decorated with polar white Flowersoft mixed with glamour dust;
Sentiment: Pink Gem Designs;
Papers: glittered paper form my stash;
Supplies: large pearl brad from The Hobby House; crystal hearts and silver gems by Papermania; silver ribbon from my stash; Tools: Spellbinders "Make A Flake 2" shapeabilities; Martha Stewart "embossed snowflake" edge punch; Cuttlebug "Snowflake #2" die.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss #61 - For Someone Special
Simon Says - Anything Goes
I ♥ ProMarkers #46 - Anything Goes
Passion For Promarkers #80 - Mega Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes

I also have another card to show you today, which is positively the last Christmas card on my blog for this year ... it is one of a batch of cards I made on Christmas Eve to send to our neighbours.

Main image; Marianne D Creatables die cuts;
Sentiment: Pink Gem Designs;
Tools: background embossed with Cuttlebug "Snowflakes" folder.

  12. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 500 so far !

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
