2014 Christmas Cards … no. 11


Christmas 2014Hi bloggies!

Another week has passed! Sorry … Sorry … Sorry! Remind me that having 2 weeks holidays only 4 weeks before Christmas is not as fantastic an idea as I thought it was! I came back feeling like I was soooo behind the 8 ball. 😯 And … I have been playing catch up ever since! I finally got all my cards written and posted today! Yep … a bit late! 🙄 I have also been out nearly every night … have had to mind the gorgusses (grandkids) 4 out of the last 10 days … and have spent 14 hours non stop doing these …….

(YEP! I AM AN IDIOT … to take on such a project less than 2 weeks before Christmas!!!)

And … we have also had a couple of celebrations including this one …….. click pics to view slideshow!

Anyway, I hope you don’t mind … but I am going to sit and do a few scheduled posts to get the rest of my Christmas cards for this year up on my blog. I don’t have the time to stop and chat … so the posts will be brief! Sorry! I hope to get back to some normality after Christmas … and one of these days … I will stop by my feed reader and check out the 486 posts waiting for me to view! Maybe I will even comment on some??? (Sorry again!!!) So … onto today’s card …

Xmas 2014 8 (4)This one was such a delight to make … super easy stamping … and then some added bling!

Xmas 2014 8 (3)I used a couple of old retired SU! snowflake sets for this card. I needed some smaller images so I didn’t overwhelm the card with images that were too big. This was another CASE! Card Inspiration: One of my favourite blog friends — Monika Davis! I did a slightly narrower version … but the ideas are all Monika!

Have a great day! Off to upload some more photos! Hugs xxx

  1. Have the idea that telling you to take a deep breath and say if everything doesn’t get done, It’s alright and it really is. It was beautiful that your daughter (am so sorry I can’t remember which one) put up your tree. Christmas cards 1 thru 10– I find varied and they have given me so many avenues of ideas–still need to make family cards before we cut and decorate our tree. Thank you for all your inspiration and shared family moments.
    Now off to make my cards Hugs and smiles, Reva


    • It is a help to remind me, Reva! You are right. It’s all right! And … really … things do have a way of being done by the deadlines anyway. I have never had unwrapped presents on Christmas morning! So … I will take a deep breath … and remember to ENJOY this special time of year! Hugs xxx


  2. Congratulations Skye.
