Christmas Time

Hi all, I am grateful for all the wonderful comments on my cards, this has given me the confidence to carry on.  Although after seeing some of the cards posted I feel I come bottom of the list as you are so very talented and give me inspiration and loads of hints and tips.  I have browsed more sites in the last few weeks after reading your blogs and found some wonderful freebies.  I was very impressed by the paper you can download and digi stamps, although stamping is still on my to do list.

This card is along the lines of one made my heroine, Sue Wilson, when I diversify from her cards I seem to get lost in space, although that is were I am most days. Hope you like it.  I think I will have to be more careful when matching colours there seems to be a few variations of red here.  Maybe just the way is has been photographed.  I took it out to the conservatory to get some natural light, but that was difficult as it has poured down all day.

Thought you would like to see a photograph taken yesterday of my sister's four grandchildren and one great grandchild (reading from left to right Findlay, Kalum (who is dad to baby), Fraser (who is profoundly deaf), baby William, and last but not least Lewis.  Lovely children full of fun.
This a photograph of the five generations in our family, back row Kalum (Dad) and his mum Lesley(my niece), front Minnie (my mum and great great gran), Marion (my sister and great gran) and of course wee William (11 days old).
Well ladies enough of my ramblings.  Once again I eagerly await your comments on my card and family if you like.
Take care you all.

  9. Hi Wilma,
    Great Christmas card, see you are a red nose reindeer person, so am I. I cannot get into making any Christmas cards yets, I have done a bit of cutting out, I sit and look at them, then throw then into my bit box, lol. You should definitely add scrap-booking
    to your never ending list of 'to do's' the pictures of your family would make great pages.

  10. Wilma I hope you fine time to scrapbook these photos I love doing this but have to say I haven't done any for nearly a year. I have had all that time off to! Must get back to it or these grandchildren will be all grown up and their books will be half empty. Lovely card again ... hazel

    1. Hi Hazel, you had other things on your mind so now you can catch up with everything. I love playing sorry creating with card, paper, embellishments, ribbon etc, sometimes it works then others, well it's only paper, can start again. I don' t have any grandchildren myself, my only son died aged 18 so I am allowed to steal my sister's for a wee while. I love my time spent with them.
