Merry Christmas one and All!

 Hello Blogging Friends and Visitors, I hope you are well and staying sane in this run up to Christmas.

We have everything done and dusted, presents bought and wrapped, food bought, and house given a once over, so a relaxing day tomorrow.

So, I'm popping in to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hoping you have a wonderful day, and best wishes for a happy, healthy and contented 2024. 

I'm hoping that the New Year will bring peace throughout the world. It's just heartbreaking what is happening in so many  countries around the world, especially in Palestine.

I'm finishing the year with  my Snowman card , made from my friend Fiona, she adores The Snowman and I've made her one for many years now,

 I've made a shaker card this time, and the Snowman and his little friend are enjoying a hoolie  with their other Snowman friends.

Just a bit of time now to visit your blogs and see what you've been doing, take care of yourselves and see you next year,

Anything Goes for the CCC! Bringing Gifts!

 Hello  Friends and Visitors, It's been a while since I was last on the computer to go to Blogland, but here I am, late, but nevertheless here with the final card for the Christmas Card Club and the theme is Anything Goes,

 I've used a selection of sets from Card-io stamps. I just love this tall, lanky snowman, he's so sweet and he's welcoming his little friends who have brought gifts for him. I've used lots of glitter and gel pens.

It's sad the the CCC is stopping, but for lots of different reasons we are all finding it difficult to get around to creating the cards, and over the last few years our numbers have dropped. so it was time to call it a day. I will still be making Christmas cards all year round as Christmas cards are my favourite kind to make.

I'm also not blogging so much these days either, I just don't seam to get around to do it on a regular bases, but I do like to pop in and see what you are all doing, but don't go back on all the days that I've missed, so sorry if I miss you out, but I think I manage to comment on my usual friends fairly often.

I hope you are all well and getting through your Christmas preparations with out too much hassle. I got all my cards written out and posted today, that's the biggest chore. Next the the parcel wrapping, which I hate doing now. 

Hopefully we will manage to get the tree up and decorations, and this coming Saturday, the Choral Society have their Carolthon, we always look forward to that and this year we will be collecting for Crocus which is a Children's Bereavement organisation.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments you left about my last card, I really do appreciate them.

That's me for now, take care of yourselves and hope to see you soon,

Christmas Catkins!

Hello Everyone,  hoping you are all well and keeping cosy.  Very cold here,  the other morning it was -8, temperature picking up a bit today. 

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my coloured page. 

This new card was inspired by Elizabeth  from Delbello  design team member Elizabeth, using Lavinia Stamps,  Posca pens  gel pens,  elements ink and holographic embossing powder. 

That's me for now.  Out at choral practice tonight,  rehearsing for the Carolthon in a couple of weeks.  It's lovely to be singing Christmas carols and songs again,  and of course The Messiah. 

Look after yourselves,  keep cosy and see you soon, 

Kate 💖
