"HAPPY CHRISTMAS"

Hello Blog friends, followers and all who happen by.  Hope you are all well and looking forward to the "big day".  Before we all get totally engulfed with the Christmas Festivities, please remember those of our Blog friends and others in the wider community who desperately need our thoughts and prayers just now.   Tragedy, loss and suffering do not disappear just because it is Christmas.
The projects I am showing are made from canvases I found when looking for something totally different.  When I saw them I decided to use them as Christmas Cards/Seasonal Pictures ...

 This one is for J & A
This one for my friend Isobel

Canvas 6x4 from The Works
PMD Hammered Card for the background
Distress Ink (faded jeans) for the night sky, a 2p piece, cut out and inked over for the moon. Clouds a Clarity stamp I have had for as long as I can remember.
Papers from a Christmas pad cut and rolled to form windows
MB Die in Black and White put together and cut up as required
Plenty of Glitter!!!!
Freebe "Happy Christmas" Stamp
SW Bow Die

That`s it for today folks
I would like to "Thank" all you wonderful people for the support and wonderful comments over the past year.  I have said this many times, without you guys, Blogging would be no fun at all.  I love seeing all your wonderful creations, gaining inspiration and learning.

John and I wish you all a fantastic Christmas.
Till next time  ...  have fun.
Hugs

Just for You

Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.  Welcome and thank you for stopping to look at what I have been up to.  I have a New Follower, I think she is Portuguese, I have had a look on her Blog, she does some beautiful things.  Thank you for becoming a follower I really appreciate that.
Sorry I have been missing for so long.  
I am fortunate to be a very healthy person BUT!! I do suffer rather badly from S.A.D.  I have a lamp, I take extra Vitamin D, I try to get out for a walk if the day is good, I still do not cope very well.  However on the positive side  ...   this is the shortest day.  Onwards and upwards as they say.  
I have not done any real crafting for 2 maybe 3 weeks.  I have given myself a good shake and hopefully will get some things done soon.
I have a card to show you.   I "had" to make this for my friend who lives outside Belfast in Northern Ireland.  She fell putting out the rubbish.  She has broken her left wrist and fractured her right elbow.  My friends are falling like "nine pins".  Oriel is too far away for me to be of any help.  However she has a fantastic family who are all rallying round.  My Other friend Elaine is still not too good.  She is getting there but not as fast as she would like, of course this is getting her down.  Elaine made it along to the Card Class Tuesday past, all the ladies were so happy to see her.  They did the card she had prepared for them (Jennifer Elaine`s daughter) had actually put it together.   I had done extra for them so all in all a good class, a great laugh which I know helped Elaine a lot. 
I hope you are all getting on well with the Christmas preparations.  All good here so far.
Here is my card for today:-

Simple card using a Technique Sue Wilson showed recently
Base card approx 5x7
Purple card embossed
SW Ivy Die plus the outside Die from one of one her Striplet Sets
Just for You, Phil Martin Stamp from Creative Expressions
Pearls from stash  ...  all very easy peasy

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate that.
Till next time
Hugs
