Christmas is coming….

Hello Crafters

Yes it won’t be long now before the choas of Christmas will reign supreme! Personally, I think it has lost it’s meaning, it should be about family and friends and spending all important time together, but it has become so commercialised and it seems all about how much or how big a gift is given. For us this year we are keeping it nice and simple, and I am looking forward to spending Christmas Day cooking, chatting and laughing with all who is dear and on Boxing Day, we have the grandchildren coming to stay.

So today, I thought I would simply showcase a couple of christmas cards, that I made recently, to get in the spirit of Christmas!

This was a simple decoupage with layering and matting.

I have been trying to use all the bits and pieces of card stock, that I keep saving, and so far it is reducing, so I shall just keep on rummaging around the boxes! I did have a clear up and put the offcuts all into different colour files and it is now so much easier to go to, when I need a piece of card a certain colour and it has saved me from cutting up full sheets when I only need a smaller cut.

Well I’m off to put the finishing touches to a lovely little steak and kidney pie I am baking, and get to spend some time with my partners family too!

Have a lovely weekend!
