Christmas Card

Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.  Thank you so much for stopping to see what I have been up to, I love having you here.  I like to get back to you and see what you have been doing although a few of you do not have live Blogs ......why not???  It is great fun although it does take up some of your free time.  Not a problem normally but just now time seems to be flashing by rather quickly.
I have Thomas here all day Robert is off as Team Goalie at a big Football Tournament in Dundee. Everyone except mum, who is working, will be here for dinner this evening.   The boys have also asked for a sleepover.   They are off school tomorrow for St Andrews day  .. the Patron Saint of Scotland.  We don`t have them quite so often so we are looking forward to that.
Right here are a couple of cards I made during the week:-

A Bauble card:-
I had a red circle of card lying and thought it looked like a bauble.  
The little deer a Die Cut image from a Tilda Paper Stack
Backing paper from a First Addition paper stack
SB Grand Fancy Circle Dies
SB Poinsettia
Ribbon from my stash

Another made from bits
The music backing paper is the waste from cutting the circle for the card above
Scraps of Gold card for the SB Bauble
SB Grand Dies for the frame cut from card bought at  The Papeterie in Aberdeen.
Stamp bought in the States when on holiday last month .. no name
Ribbon from my stash

John and Thomas off on an Adventure Walk so getting time to do this. 

That`s it for today
Off to get things done for the meal tonight 
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate you calling in
Till next time

  1. Both your cards are great Patricia but I really love your bauble card. I think the circle appeals to me because it is different. Enjoy your time with the boys. Hugs Christine xx

  2. Good morning Patricia
    Sounds like you have your day all mapped out, hope you have a lovely day when you come back down to earth after celebrating your win from Sue Wilson, many congratulations so delighted for you enjoy your present when it arrives.
    These are two beautiful and stunning cards today so pleased you have not asked us to choose a favourite both are equally lovely.
    Sorry but I would not have the faintest idea how to go about setting up a blog not too good in the tech department I am afraid but I do so enjoy visiting yours.
    Hope you have a lovely day tomorrow with the boys.

  8. Hi Patricia
    Firstly, congrats on your Sue win. Bet you're as chuffed as Mrs Chuff who lives in Chuffsville!
    Both cards are crackers (running with the Christmas theme) but I love the bauble in particular.
    Enjoy your Sunday with the family and your day with the boys.

  12. Hi Patricia, This is a quickie as I'm not supposed to be on my laptop, due to the fact that I had my eye lasered on Thursday. Your two cards are fabulous.
    Congratulations on your 'win' on Sue's Blog, you deserve it, enjoy !!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    2 wonderful creations here, and they are both so different too.
    Great designing as usual.

  17. Two beautiful Christmas cards Patricia, love the die cuts.

  18. Wow! 2 stunners on this post. I really like #1 with the deer, which looks very dimensional against that music background. How clever to use that circle cutout as the background on #2, with that glamorous golden ornament in the frame. Now that is just brilliant, and each card is unique in its design. Enjoy your grands. TFS & Hugs.

  19. Evening Patricia what beautiful cards I do love them both and the designs are wonderful on them both.
    Sorry I've not been commenting much but I've had a
    Problem with blogger as the comment box as been missing on some blogs and it as been driving me mad.
    So please I got to comment on yours tonight.
    Take care and hugs
