Christmas Starts Here..

Thank you for your lovely comments and wishes, I think we are on the mend now, hubby and dog - so I am able now to concentrate on my soldiers cards, the cut-off point is the end of September, so i have a lot of work to do between now and then, plus it is my DIL's birthday at the same time,  so I am looking for ideas for a minimalist card that oozes style for her - all thoughts, ideas and brain cells gratefully received :-)  ...

In the meantime, here are three of my cards .....    the images  are - reindeer is Kanban and the other two are American - I love the bright colours :-)

Back at Last ....

Well, what to say after all this time. I spend so much time on Facebook now in the evenings, and crafting during the day that real life is sometimes beginning to be a nuisance that gets in the way of everything I want to do, but feel guilty about doing - when I think about it, which isn't very often. Here is another reason for my absence - this old boy was attacked by a Japanese Akita (dunno how to spell it but its a huge fighting dog - super aggressive) and in hauling this creature off our lovely dog, my hubby was taken seriously ill - so now, hubby is better, dog is better, I can relax .......
I would also like to thank all of you lovely people who left kind comments, I don't often say so, but thank you so much, I really appreciate your thoughts - and I need your prayers too at the moment, just to make sure everything keeps on track xx

TMTA - Feel Like a Queen

Bit late in the week for this one, but nevertheless I shall enter it. I don't have any queenish stamps, but found some tiny crowns in my embellishment box - thought these would be just perfect for this challenge - but since finding them, the whole reason why I dug into my box went right out of my head - ho hum - the joys of getting old :-)
The link to this lovely challenge site is down on the left hand side of my blog - pop along and see the delicious ATC's :-)

Male and Female Birthday cards...

The card is one of a set of 5 I bought from Dawn Bibby's Topaz Crafts a few years ago in a sale, you know, the sort of impulse buy that you can't live without. Well, they sat in a draw for ages,simply because of the chopped off shape of the front of the card ... and then hubby bought me an Imagina stamp (because he liked a demo card in a shop) and so I ferretted out the cards, thought hmmmm and stamped my chic lady on a piece of card, layered a gold card behind and finished her off with three tiny heart stick on gems ........ hope you like :-)

This is a birthday card made for a special person, I used his birthday month and name as background words, and think it works quite well, because he is an unfussy person.....

Something a bit different ..

I had a pack of black cards that I bought a while ago on a whim - just loved them, but somehow they never seemed right to use, until I received a gorgeous CHRISTMAS card printed on black card and I thought ooooooo well - let's go for it, so I did - here is the result !!

Wow, it's been 6 months since I posted anything, so first of all, I wish for you and your families and friends, Health, Wealth and Happiness in abundance for 2011.
I can't say I've been too busy to come on here, but in my own defence I found out about a stalker on here, who is an undesirable in my family life and so it's put me off blogging because I don't know how to get rid of that person... that being said, I feel I am bigger than they are, and will start a new blog very soon with photo's that I find precious and would love to shout from the rooftops about and share with a select few of my internet friends -- that way nobody can log in unless invited ...
The photo is two friends and my hubby enjoying a meal at Christmas a couple of years ago, I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and Santa bought loads of lovelies for you xxx
