Christmas Wrap Up and Happy New Years

Morning everyone, I am just wanting to share all the beautiful handmade cards we received this christmas.  So wonderful to think that someone spent their time creating something for us. :-)  The cards are in no particular order…..if any order it is as the computer sees fit.  :-)

So first card off the mark is this beautiful card from my equally beautiful friend Helen using Stampin Up products.

This is from the lovely Gail of 'Gails Blog'.  A piece of christmas fabric highlighted with a glitter frame and foil stars attached.

This is so glittery in real life, from the always smiling Jan of Craftmad….album here.

The talented Sherry sent me this wonderful cracker card.  So elegant with the bow.

This very Christmassy card is from the Kerry of 'Kerry's Place to Escape' and Craftmad (album here)

A clever christmas stocking card from a lady that always inspires me…..my Mum.  :-) Those little holly leaves have been glued on individually.

How lucky am I to receive this special card from the creative lady Susan of 'Time to Play'

This card is from the amazing Kaye of 'Crafty Kayes Room' and Craftmad (album here) who comes up with something new all the time.  Be sure to pop over to her blog today to see Santa and his holly leaves.  :-0

This a simply stylish card is very eye catching from the lovely Cathy of 'Cathy's Creative Corner' and Craftmad (album here)

The first Christmas card I received was from the artistic Annmaree of 'Follow the Paper Brick Road'.  I love the Aussie feel of the card.

This beautiful poinsettia card is from the imaginative Mandy owner of Craftmad (album here).

My lovely Aunty Barb made this card and is relatively new to card making and each year it is so wonderful to see how she has improved and what new things she is trying.  The wreath is 3D paper tole.

This just arrived in my mailbox from the kind Schnookle of Craftmad (album here)

How lucky am I this is from my Secret Santa over at Craftmad as you can see I have lots to keep me busy this year. 

I was so lucky and received a second Secret Santa this year.  This is such a special present and I am all set for cards next year as this folder contains everything I need to make 24 cards.  It has the cards, 3D adhesive foam, die cut images, stickers, etc

The inside.

And that is Christmas 2013 for me.  Thanks to everyone who made it so special and thanks to all who have visited my blog throughout 2013 and left beautiful and encouraging comments.  Wishing you all a fantastic 2014.  

See you next year. :-)
