Well, Christmas is almost upon us, and just when I thought I had finished making all the cards I needed,we received an unexpected one so tomorrow it's back to the drawing board again. Fortunately I have some unused components lying idle, so should be able to do a quick fix card.
Having been surrounded by builders for the last15 months, I am looking forward to a quiet Christmas(just the two of us as the family are off to foreign parts to spend Christmas with their in-laws). This happens on alternate years so is nothing unusual.
I have added a few more cards for you to look at and to anyone who pops in to read these musings and take a look,thank you for looking and I wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year. May all your crafting dreams come true!

Ok, so I am still lagging behind and still playing catch-up but following my birthday last weekend, when I spent two whole days in the enjoyable company of my family, I had a concerted effort to make the 'special' cards I needed for family and close friends, not forgetting the one I wanted to make for the Chocolate Baroque competition. 

Having finished them I am now free to concentrate on organising the household for Christmas. Present shopping was completed by the beginning of November (do I hear moans from somewhere) so that just leaves housework, washing and shopping for food nearer the time. I know this sounds almost  anal, but we do have the decorator descending on Monday to paint the lounge following the completion of the extension. I hope you enjoy the cards and maybe find some inspiration if you still have yours to do.
