Clarity Christmas Challenge

Here I am again at the very last minute I have just realised that it's the end of December and the Clarity Christmas Challenge is almost closing. I remembered doing this little piece of Groovi work to sooth me when the Christmas panic was really full on. I am a great admirer of Emma Burns' work and this is very much inspired by her. I just love the way the heart shapes in this groovi plate have layered up ..... and for me the Mother Baby image is what Christmas is all about

Christmas is over again for another year and this card has been sent and received so I am safe to post it on here.  I love the time spent playing groovi it really does  allow me to calm right down truly is 'Me time' wish I could devote more time to it and get to grips with the lovely cut work and whitework that true parchers manage to do.

Well it's nearly the end of 2015, it hasn't been the greatest of years for our family so we are looking forward to 2016 with renewed hope. Happy New Year to you all xxx Annie

Fussy and Fancy Challenge #154 Happy Holidays

I cannot believe that this is the final challenge of 2015, Christmas is nearly with us and I seem to have lost a whole month, I am so behind with making my cards. Anyway back to the challenge Lovely talented Theresa is hosting this Challenge, what a task, Theresa especially as this challenge is running for Four weeks to cover the holidays. Just take a peek at what Theresa has made as inspiration .... it is amazing.
This is my sample made with a cute Stampendous stamp for one of my granddaughters:

it is one of those cards that just came together and I enjoyed colouring in and making all the snowflake embellishments. I hope she likes it she is getting a bit old for cute cards but as the youngest grandchild she will always be my baby girl xx

Entering our challenge is so easy all the details are here All our lovely Design team are involved in this one so we will all be popping over to your blogs and leaving comments. I know everyone is so busy right now but why not enter one of your favourite Holiday makes and because the winner is randomly chosen everyone has the same chance of winning whatever your ability.

I better get back to my cardmaking, just a few more now for hand delivery and then I'm done, then it will be just the last few things to buy it wouldn't be the same if I didn't have some last minute things to do. Have a lovely Holiday time however you choose to spend it and I will speak to you all again when it's all over, by then it will be 2016 Love and Crafty hugs Annie xxx
