The Last of my Christmas Cards for 2016!!

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!

Well, I am about to share the very last of my Christmas Cards for this year and this will also be my last post for this year as well.  Cannot believe how quickly the year has flown by .. every year seems to go by faster and faster .. must be getting old!!  LOL!!

So, I have three cards to share today.

Using all the same things that I have used on my Christmas cards shared previously.
Kaisercraft papers, Impression Obsession die - Pine Branch 021-N ..

.. Made my own greeting by printing it on my computer and then covering it with an epoxy sticker  (Thanks again Lizzy Hill) ..

Gold star stickers, a little gauze, some small flowers and berries for the cluster.

A silver ribbon bow, Aleene's True Snow and some splatters of white paint.
 The inside ..

.. Voila!!

Card Number #2

Similar to Number #1 .. paper from the same collection, similar design with just a few different embellies.
A Scrapmatts chippie instead of a flair ..

.. some coloured baubles added to the cluster ..

.. a larger bloom and an added diecut (Memory Box - Snowflake Spray)

More gold star stickers ..

.. the inside ..

.. and done!!

Last, but not least, as they say ..

This card has an extended base.

 Pomegranate apples, tiny roses, berries and the same pine branch diecut.

Same star stickers

The greeting is from the signature strip of a Maja sheet.

Need I say it??  The inside LOL!!

.. and, again,  Voila!!!

You will be happy to know, I think, that this is the absolute last of my Christmas cards.  At least until next year when we can do it all over again!!  LOL!!

I really appreciate the love and encouragement you have all shown me and hope you will continue to come by in the new year.

As this is my last post for the year, may I wish you all a Joyful, Healthy, Prosperous and
Happy New Year!!
May God Bless and protect you all through 2017 and beyond.

  2. Can't believe how well those faux flair work! And the sentiment on the side is such a brill idea - --- they're all GORG & deffo the wood grain one is my fave! AND I'm thinking I might 'need' some of that snow. It works a treat :) HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!!!!!

  6. Happy New Year to you too Marg. Like you, I blinked and almost missed last year, but it was a busy one for us, so hoping for a bit more crafting time in 2017. Your cards are ALL absolutely gorgeous. The cluster work is always perfectly arranged and I love the way you "gussy" up the insides too. Thanks for all the kind words you leave on my blog, they are so very much appreciated. Go well and try to keep cool!
