Its been a busy time... but managed to make a couple of cards for my christmas in between  Doctors appts.. they are  a pain but  necessary... hopefully  all will be well  after  reveiw today.

christmas is coming

now I have  my stamps from GKD and raring to go ... so have  started with  a group of 6 for my soprano friends...i just love the feel  of  christmas  coming.. anticipation from  all those years ago.. watching  my  mum  making the mincemeat for  pies.. and christmas puddings with silver threepenny bits in there.. ( one for everyone) we always thought it was  just pure luck!.. and oh the excitement of hanging  one  of  my dads socks  on the end of thebed... and we were thrilled with the little presents and oranges/ nuts / crayons and books  in side on  christmas  morning.. unlike today  where pillow slips are  the go and presents downstairs too.. just goes to show  how much more affluent  this generation  is.

I cant sleep.. so Have come down to  see if making a card will help... cant believe christmas is just around the corner.. I am itching to try  out  the christmas stamps from GKD..

little Malachi.. his  welcome  card

this card  is  made for the soprano's in our community choir.. I have collected  all the we can celebrate  each  one as it comes  up... (just another excuse to make more cards... .... its   addictive)
I just love this  bright and cheerful  tangerine colour.. and wondered if  icould put it with pink... hmmm not  bad.. gotta  be  more adventurous with my colour schemes.

Hazel's little creativity haven!

What a busy  year already... Happy new  year to all you lovely  ladies  who, like me, are addicted to crafting/stamping and just feeling  creative.

my little family  is growing,  we have GGD number two,   Ivy Jayne, the most delightful  little imp, already  loving to draw

and play with  her crayons..

who can believe how  quickly the years are flying by,  I wonder  how I found time to go to work!

 happy crafting  to one and all.

the New year 2013

Well here we are  in  another new year... so much has  eventuated  over the last 12 months.. one twin GD married.. the other became a mummy.. I am so thrilled.. another GGD Ivy Jayne.. after my foster mother  Ivy.. I predict that Ivy will be the new  Fave  name for 2013.

my rock  David.. and I celebrate  48 years  this  year.. where have the years flown to?... and I reach  the next big milestone  of 70... (can that be right )  yes... it is... so much more to learn...

I wish…

Hi Hazel, Thank you for commenting on my sympathy card.  You asked me if the sentiment was from SU.  To be honest with you, I don't remember.  That card was from 2012;  I'm lucky if I can remember things from yesterday (LOL).  I can tell you this, since I have so few stamps it was either from the SU Digital Suite or computer generated.  Sorry I can't be of more help.

Thank you Hazel!  I really appreciate your sweet comments on my "So Thankful" card.  I feel badly for you that you don't have a fall.  I loved fall when I lived in New England, but down here if Florida, we don't really have a fall either.  I sure miss it!!  :)

Thank you sweet Hazel !!  I so appreciate your kindness!!  It made me happy to read your beautiful comments.  I am very critical of myself, and you and some of the other girls seem to curve that for me.  You are a special person to me!  :) :) :)  Hugs!

Hello Hazel, I forgot that the seasons are different than here in the U.S. I live in Texas and it has been hot here. Daytime temps. have been in the 90's and three weeks ago it was over 100. I can't wait for Winter. Have a great day indoors crafting. I will be looking forward to more of your beautiful cards.

Hello Hazel, Thank you for your comments on my Pink and White motifs and accents card. I'm glad you like it. This die set is new to me. I had looked for it for quite a while and found it this summer in a scrapbook store while we were on vacation.
