Surprise!! Surprise!! More Christmas Cards!

Hello again everybody!!  Welcome to my bloggy space!
Only a few days to Christmas .. can you believe it??  Hope all your preparations are going well.  I am happy to say mine are pretty well done.  We are lucky enough to be going to our son's home for Christmas day so I don't have much food prep to do this year .. suits me to a tee!!!!  Only have two more pressies to wrap and I am finished!!  Woo! Hoo!  Now I can sit back, relax and simply look forward to the big day.  Nothing better than celebrating our Saviours birth with family and friends.

I'm sharing a couple more Christmas cards with you today.  I do actually have a few I haven't shared yet but I might leave those till next year as I'm sure you must all be getting tired of these.

Anyhow here is Card #1.
These two cards were not made in a batch so they are quite different from each other.
The papers are a mix of different Kaisercraft collections.

Added a Scrapmatts chippy!

Some Pomegranate Apples, Berries and a Pine Branch diecut.  I thought I had lost this die.  Looked everywhere and couldn't find it anywhere .. was totally devastated 'cos I love it for my Chrissy cards.  Then, I was looking for something totally different and, 'lo and behold', found it in the place I originally thought it ought to be.  Must have been having a 'man' look the first time, LOL!!  So glad it turned up!!

Some Aleene's True Snow ..

 .. a few star stickers and some paint splatters ..

.. and the usual on the inside.


Card No. 2.
This one is all Maja papers!!

More diecuts (Memory Box Snowflake Spray which was cut up into separate pieces)  and some lace between the layers

A lovely, deep red bloom (Thank you Heather Jacob!!), some gauze and berries ..

.. and another Scrapmatts chippy!

A few gold star stickers ..

.. and more of the Aleene's True Snow.   Before the True Snow dries, I usually add some glitter but it is difficult to pick that up in a photo.

.. and another one done!!

Thank you so much for popping in and taking a look.
Not sure if I will do another post before Christmas so, just in case I don't, I would like to wish you all a most Joyous and Blessed Christmas.
May God's Peace be in your heart and home now and always.


  1. Each and everyone has been stunning in its own way Marg, and I have enjoyed seeing them (and absolutely ADORE mine!!! I am pretty much done too, but have 8 people coming over to dinner, so I am busy in the kitchen (and quite enjoying it).

  3. Marg, I never tire of seeing your beautiful cards, loaded up with layers, dies, chippies and flowers and leaf sprays, and beautifully adorned inside as well.. These two look wonderful.. and I wish you a very Happy Christmas, sharing with your family.. I pray you know the peace and joy given in the first Christmas night! I have a few more things to do and get, just the fresh foods and do up the salads and put the turkey roll in the over. I have my parents and my husbands parents and 2 of my older kids here for Christmas lunch, so it will be a lovely time together I am sure.. always thankful to still have our parents.. So thank you Marg for your wonderful inspiration and friendship, and I hope you have a wonderful New Year too... xxxxx

  4. So nice to get back from 10 days away and find your lovely cards. I never tire of your creativity with the traditional colours and gorgeous layering. The way you photograph allows us to see the detail too. Love the insides as well and the Scrapmatts chippies work so beautifully with your style. Almost 2017 - only 5 hours to go, so Happy New Year - may it be filled with good health, good friends and many inspired scrappy moments. xo
