Singing under the lamp post

Hi to you all, my where has all the days gone since my last post.  I have been very busy making more and more wreaths and Christmas cards and they are all along the same lines so have not had much to post, you don't want to see the same things repeated I am sure.

This card tonight is one I love. It is using LOTV toppers from some I bought last year and I do like using them.

The paper is Papermania Home for Christmas, some red card and Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles, the border sentiment is from my stash as is the ribbon and pearl.  I have added some glitter dust to make it sparkle.

As I have said I have been super busy and I am getting fed up making Christmas cards and wreaths.  I really want to get back to making other cards and projects.  I have accumulated lots of projects from blogs and Internet that I am interested in trying but at the moment it is all about Christmas.

The Good Companions Club my mother attends and I do a demo for them is going well. The ladies now want to try making stick pins and want to get their hands on my bead collection.  I have bought a few necklaces from car boot sales and stripped them down to turn into other items, thus keeping the costs down.  I have also been approached to assist with a wee craft afternoon at the church and if we get enough interested parties it will take off soon.  My hubby says I am taking on too much but it is something I enjoy doing and once Christmas is over I will have plenty of time to take part.

OK then you lovely people now the weather is getting colder please take extra care of yourselves and wrap up warm, keep all them bugs at bay.

  1. sounds like your going to be a busy lady Wilma, don't do to much.
    your card is beautiful, lovely image and papers.

  2. Hello Wilma, love your card, and the image is so sweet.
    Your going to be busy, but it's something you enjoy and it's wonderful to be able to teach people what your passionate about, but don't overstretch yourself. Take care, and hugs Kate x

  3. Hi Wilma love this LOTV image, you sound really busy right now and I think helping people to learn about something you love is great, but take it easy. Lots of huggles Sue xx

  4. Beautiful Wilma. I love the backing paper.

  5. Good morning Wilma,
    Love your beautiful card, the LOTV images are wonderful to use.
    Know the feeling about being busy, keeps us out of mischief!!!!
    I have been asked to do a Talk on "Parcel Wrapping" this Wednesday. I will do it but it means missing my day with Hazel. However the way I am feeling at the moment I could do without it. I personally will have to re-think how much I have taken on. I do enjoy it all BUT ........... I am beginning to miss my free time.
    Have a great day

  6. Here's another one who has taken on more than she should. But can we say NO!! No we say YES then suffer for it. I am making the origami boxes with the children at the school plus doing the same with some of the mums at grandsons nursery.
    Your card is lovely I do like this image and those papers. As soon as it's a bit lighter I have to unload my car of things that we had to the craft fair yesterday, that's the bit I hate as I never goes back into the stock/ craft room the same as before. I say take it easy but you are so like the rest of us we don't know the meaning of that word. Hazel xx
