Merry Christmas!

Saturday, 26 December 2009
Happy Boxing Day everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that Santa brought you all everything that you hoped for (and maybe some surprises too!)

I'm sorry I didn't get round to posting these before Christmas, but the last week was so busy that I didn't even pick my laptop up!

Whilst we didn't get anymore snow after Monday, it was still pretty treacherous outside and I ended up falling over twice on my way home from work on Wednesday. Unfortunately Jon wasn't with me as he had to stay at home as our boiler had leaked everywhere Tuesday, but that's another story entirely!! Let's just say that we've had BG out again today!!!

I've posted photos here of the cards that I made for my sister, dad and mum. Sorry that I've loaded this post up, put thought everyone might be fed up with seeing Christmas cards by now!

The first up is my sister, Jo's, card. I used the ever so cute Popcorn Bear from the Frosty & Bright set. the image on the front has been decoupaged slightly and sprayed with Silver Spray & Sparkle.
This is a close up of the front of the card. I did include some invertiage on the inside but forgot to photograph this!

Next up is my dad's card. Again I have used the Frosty & Bright Popcorn set and the front has been decoupaged slightly and sprayed. I've decided that I prefer to use silicone glue for decoupaging now, rather than the foam pads.

Now I come to my mum's card. I saw this decoupage set in Hobbycraft and knew instantly I had to get it for my mum. She loves robins, especially as the road they live in is Robin Way! You can't appreciate from the photo how glittery and sparkly it is! My mum couldn't believe that it was handmade to begin with and was convinced that I had brought it from a shop!

I tried to do and "arty" shot her but completely messed it up! More practise required me thinks!

I hope you're still with me after this longish post!!
I should be going to football today with my dad, but unfortunately my mum went down with the norovirus during the early hours of Christmas Day and was very poorly. Because of that, I didn't get to see my mum, dad or sister as they could all be carriers and need to be symptom free for the next 2-3 days before seeing anyone else. I spoke to my mum this morning and she's feeling a bit better now, so hopefully I will get to see her next week. I hope my sister doesn't come down with it as her boyfriend is coming down from Sunderland tomorrow and she can't wait to see him.
Sorry to have rambled even more! Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Boxing Day.

  1. Hi sweetie,
    I'm NOT tired of Christmas cards - I love these - they are stunning and I'm sure all your family loved them. I only started feeling 'Christmassy' about a week before Christmas so I'm having a blast looking at everyone's cards, so keep 'em coming. I'm making some more of my own this week so I have a start on next year's stash - and I think other cardmakers are doing the same.
    {Hugs} to you :o)
