I think i have finished making all my Christmas cards now.  The next few days will be spent getting ready for my trip to Cornwall to spend Christmas with my daughter Helen and her family the we will be spending New Year in Ireland with our eldest daughter Claire and her family.  I cant wait to see them all and spend some precious time with my 3 grandchildren.

I have enjoyed making Christmas cards but am now ready to move on for another year.

Whoopsi Daisy - Use up Your Stash

This weeks challenge over at Whoopsi Daisy is Use up Your Stash or Anything Goes with a Whoopsi Daisy Image.  

This Week i have used a Pre coloured  New scene Whoopsi Daisy image which you can find Here .
The paper is from stash that i used last Christmas and was in my bits box and all the die cuts were ready cut that i had not used from previous cards.
The frame is a Mariane die and so are the swirls.  I think the poinsettias are Marianne too.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges.
ABC Christmas Challenge               Y is for your favourite punch / die
Christmas at Sweet Stamping           Anything goes               

Thank you for passing by and looking and for any comments left.

I was asked to make 3 cards for a lady a week or two ago and here is what i came up with.  The first card is for he sons 50th Birthday and as you may have guessed he is a keen fisherman.

The next two cards are for her Granddaughters.

I haven't really been keeping up with my blog the past week or two as i have been making various cards for Christmas but i think i am near the end of them now.
