Winter at MMM





Welcome to the latest challenge at Make My Monday where the challenge chosen by Claudia is WINTER but  NOT CHRISTMAS 

My digital image is from Making Cards Magazine published at the end of 2021. My husband and I were married in December and celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary on Thursday, we plan to enjoy a meal with family and friends. Our younger son took us to see A Christmas Carol at the cinema on Sunday,it was a film of the stage show with Mark Gatiss and Nicholas Farrell we thoroughly enjoyed it, it was more expensive than normal cinema tickets but not as expensive as the theatre

A Winnie the Pooh Christmas


   

I received this fabulous Winnie the Pooh as a gift from  Sherri a crafting buddy from the USA,she creates the most adorable and fun cards.

A simple snowflake embossed frame with foam tape sits on top of a red frame to form depth for the shaker element.Sorry about the shadow from the stars in the shaker element. Image coloured with Promarkers.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment I appreciate the time you take to do this.
Many thanks also for your best wishes for an improvement in the pain I am experiencing whilst waiting for surgery.

Christmas


 






A trio of Christmas cards using different background scenes from La Pashe, a Christmas frame from Card Making Magic and robin and holly dies from Two Red Robins, Highlight Crafts I am trying to finish my Christmas cards as I hope to be admitted for a hip replacement before Christmas, I say hope as the waiting time is substantially longer now than it was when I saw the Consultant in June. 

Using Two red robin dies has made it so much easier than sitting to colour images. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit, I hope you are all well and enjoying the autumnal colours, it's my favourite time of year.

L for leaves at the Alphabet Challenge




 

Welcome to the latest challenge at https://alphabetchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ where we would like to see leaves. Lots of holly leaves and a few ivy leaves on my card.

Diecuts from Two Red Robins Highlight Crafts, I treated myself to a couple of the collections and have enjoyed using them, it's meant that I can make most of my Christmas cards without worrying about being able to sit and colour images, my back and hip pain has been worsening over the last months and sitting causes the most pain.You'll see a lot of diecut cards over the next few months.The crack on the glass was for pngwing.
