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.


  1. Well done on making all those cards amidst the chaos of renovation work. The top card is just beautiful, the spray of flowers and lace really set off the coloured window.

    I love the simple elegance of the damask reindeer card too.

    Good luck with your blog - seems this is a new venture for you? Hope you enjoy sharing your creations with others.

    Thanks for entering the White Christmas challenge.
