Christmas Cheer

Here goes with my first Christmas card for your ladies comments.  A bit late this morning as the dogs had to be walked round to the groomers for a haircut.  Shaolin the male was in a stroppy frame of mind this morning and would not behave for Pamela (the groomer),  just got back home and had a phone call to say Shaolin was really agressived then I had to walk back to placate him and show him who is boss.  That done they both look adorable.

I said to Patricia (Summerhouse Crafts) that is was all her fault the I got into Blogging, because of her she has opened up a new and wonderful window for me.  I adore my early morning roundup of all the cards posted on your blogs and then if I have time sitting with my coffee adding my comments.  If that does not work, well there is always later in the day to wile away an afternoon like now.  Posting my card and awaiting your comments.

The ingredients are
Creative expressions foundation card in Coconut milk and black
Red card from stash

Spellbinders Poinsettia Die
Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments die
Sentiments and gems from my stash

So ladies once again I eagerly await your comments.

Have a great day.

  3. Hi Wilma,

    I hope your 2 little dogs won't be cold now they have had their hair

  4. Good Evening Wilma,
    I get blamed for lots of things, especially if it is Craft Connected. A few of my friends husbands dread when I appear, they always say that means MORE money will be spent..... I don`t really believe it!!!!
    Glad you are enjoying Blogging it shows in your work, another great card.
    I am only doing cards for close friends and relatives this year, All the money I would have spent on stamps is going into the Fundraising Jar, it will be of more use to help others.

    Happy Crafting

    Patricia xx
