Hello Everyone

Firstly I want to wish you all a belated Merry Christmas! I had the best of intentions to post a little something on Christmas day but it didn't happen. We have been out and about since last Friday and finally had my family gathering here yesterday and now it is all done and dusted .... the cooking, the cleaning, the cooking, the cleaning, the cooking, the cleaning and the cleaning and the cleaning ... hahahahaha! Don't ya just luv Christmas!

Here's a couple of photos for you and I will finish with a different version of the sleigh card that I showed you a few days ago.

Here's Harvey with his first ever Christmas pressie from Granny and Gramps!

What was inside ... a gorgeous musical snow globe ... the snow swirls when the music plays. We also bought him a book ... Twas the Night Before Christmas ... an old favourite.

Here's our family photo for this year ... note the boy's blue steel looks :) Two new additions this year .. Harvey .. of course and Lindsey, Jay's girlfriend .. welcome Lindsey and Harvey.

And finally the card.

That's it for now ... I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and here's to a Happy New Year!

I first made one of these cards back in 2009 and vowed I wouldn't do any more but I wanted to make a couple of special cards this year for some friends so decided to have another try. Here is the result and way different variation on the original.

I actually sat down and made four of them and had heaps of fun but have to say that I am now officially well and truly over making Christmas Cards :)

Twelve months ... gone by in a flash. I think because we were waiting for the birth of our first grandchild!! And here he is ... Harvey Joseph Myers age 4 months.

Isn't he just sooo cute .. the very best gift anyone has ever given us .. this Christmas will be extra special!

Here's our tree this year! Pretty much the same as last year really but it looks so pretty with the lights on and all the pressies underneath.

Merry Christmas everyone!


I've been doing a bit of creating with friends recently and this card is a copy of my friend Francie's card which she cased from somewhere on the net. I've made some changes to hers and she made changes to the original.

Colours are Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. I've used the Swirls Scribbles and Lots of Tags Sizzlit Dies, Cottage Cutz and Memory Box Dies for the pressies, Oval Punch and the greeting is from Best Yet  which is now retired. Gotta love the new Champagne Stampin Glass Glitter which adorns the sleigh and the sleigh is made with the Top Note Die.The paper is from Jolly Holiday DSP also retired ... it was a gorgeous range of papers and I still have a whole pack in my stash. I've also used a fabulous Cuttlebug Folder on the sleigh and also on the Very Vanilla Background called Flourishes .... I think!

Happy Christmas to you all!
