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 would like to thank all of you who popped in to take a look at my little creations throughout this past year and a very special thank you to those of you who also left a comment.
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.

The last of my Christmas Cards!! .. Almost!!

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.  
I know Christmas is over but I still have some cards to share so I'm keeping it going for just a little longer.
I hope all of you had an amazing Christmas shared with all the people you love the most. 
We had a fabulous Christmas.  Unfortunately, not everyone could be there to share the day with us but we still had a great time with those who were able to come.  We ate too much, (as you do) some of us drank too much (and then fell asleep on the couch), but we all had a wonderful time together celebrating our Saviour's birthday.

These are three of the cards I have left to share.  There will be one more post after this I'm afraid!

Kaisercraft papers layered up to create some dimension and I took a leaf out of Lizzy Hill's book and made my own Christmas 'flair'.  Simply printed the greeting on my computer and then covered it with an epoxy sticker.  Turned out a treat!!  Thanks Lizzy!!

 Some tiny red roses, pomegranate apples, paper scrolls, die cuts (Impression Obsession - Pine Branch 021-N and Memory Box - Snowflake Spray) and a twine bow make up the cluster.

 A touch of Aleene's True Snow with some glitter sprinkled on it, some gold star stickers ..

.. the inside ..

.. and, Voila!!

Onto card number two.

 More Kaisercraft papers.

Same diecuts, some small white blooms and red berries in the cluster. 

Same 'snow' and gold stickers!

The bottom fold of this card is slightly wider than the top fold so it was the perfect place for the gold sticker greeting.

Inside ..

.. and done!!

Last one for today ..

Still using Kaisercraft papers but, this time, the greeting is a chippie bauble from Scrapmatts.

Same diecuts once again but I've added a larger bloom and some coloured baubles to the cluster this time.



 Inside ..

 .. and the full frontal .. LOL!!

I have three more cards to share later in the week and that will be the last of my Christmas cards for this year and, my last post for this year as well, so I can start fresh in the New Year. 

Thank you so much for dropping by and taking a look.
Take care, stay safe and God Bless.

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.


Done!!

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.
