With only 20 weeks until Christmas …. ooo did I say that?? You did want to know that right??

Well being that its not far away there is no time like the present to start on your Christmas Shopping and Christmas cards.


Here’s a lovely card that we made at class on Monday.

Its a case of the card in the Spring Mini Catalogue – I’ve just omitted the hodgepodge hardware and added the two sprigs of holly.


Stamps: Good Cheer
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla
Inks: Jet Black Stazon, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Going Gray
Accessories: Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Aqua Painter, Paper Snips, Stampin Dimensionals, Scallop Border punch, Horizontal Slot punch.

Here is the pocket with the insert shown in full.

SantaPocketnInsertIt has a sweet sentiment and its all done with just the one set – Good Cheer.

Now onto the Christmas Shopping ….

The best place to do your Christmas shopping is [of course] with me!

All you need to do is to write out your wish list and send it to me and then tell hubby, boyfriend, sons, daughters, friends, long lost relatives and anyone else who likes to buy you presents to contact me and all they have to do is tell me how much they want to spend and how they will pay and I will do the rest for you – I’ll even wrap it up and deliver it if you’re close by! Now I beg Target wont do that!!

Email me today for your wishlist form.

Now I do have to make an apology. In my Lovely Lilies post last week I inadvertantly forgot to credit Fiona Platzer for the original designer of the card I shared – I have edited that post and apologising to Fiona for the oversight. Thanks again for the RAK Fiona – its such a lovely card.

Now I’m off to create some Birthday Invitations for Miss E’s birthday party.

Have a great night!



  1. Wow but the colouring scares me!!! You always do such a great job of your colouring! I wonder if I spend long enough with you, if that will rub off on me so that I can improve my colouring technique!
