In the winter months hubby grows a beard and moustache, as he is white, loads of folk refer to him as Santa Claus, this card is for a friend who does that. She has been a fantastic support to both of us over the past few months and I'll be giving this card with loads of love and thanks.

To all my followers, thank you for your support, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year

Christmas Present

Today our challenge at CD Sunday was chosen by Pamela and it gives loads of scope on how you interpret it. You could make a card with an image of a  Christmas present or you could look at what a Present day Christmas means to you, or the changing Christmas traditions, we see far more Christmas Markets in our towns and a Christmas Eve showing of IT's A Wonderful Life or a Christmas Carol is becoming more popular especially in independent cinemas, as a family we have been to showings of both.
We also have the things we like to do in the run up to Christmas, I have Christmas themed novels I like to read and I especially love watching the Christmas films we have purchased over the years.

You can probably guess from my card that a Christmas Carol is a favourite film and reflects one of our Christmas Traditions.It's for my younger son who quite happily watches several of the versions we have. The banner is from The Graphics Fairy and the sentiment from Create with TLC ( Pauline offered to personalise the sentiment when I  purchased her Christmas Club digis a few years ago ) I added the Bah Humbug die cut by Crafter's Companion as a stopper .

Head on over to the challenge and see the other DT cards then please join us, as long as you use an element from a CD and name the CD you used you will be eligible for a top 3 pick and a prize from Pamela, I look forward to seeing your creations.

A Pooh Christmas

Another Winnie the Pooh creation, image from  Disney Clipart  these images are free and strictly for non profit use. Embossing folders mostly from Crafters Companion. I have made several cards using this layout and love all the white space.


Thank You

Saying a simple thank you and letting others know that you appreciate them is important to me, so I always have a few thank you cards made. This one is very simple a printed image from Lili of the Valley and paper that came with a Creative Crafting World kit.

Those that visit regularly may remember that I was to see an Oncologist after my breast surgery, I saw him yesterday and have declined chemotherapy, the increase in survival rate at 10 years was only 4%, since I had a mastectomy and the cancer wasn't affected by hormones and there was no node involvement I am in as good a position as it's possible to be. Luckily the Oncologist accepted that I totally understood the situation and my reasons for saying no.
