Made for me by Maggie and Christine

Hi Everybody,

Over the past year I have made some pretty cards that have had some wonderful comments from all of you and they are very much appreciated.

You seem to have enjoyed the things I have posted and the videos that Griff and I have done... and we have many more planned for the coming New Year.

But over the next few days ... as we head towards Christmas Day  ... I would like to show you  the beautiful hand made cards that  some of my followers  have taken the time to make and send just for me

The red one is from Maggie, and I have her permission to show you the card she made for me and added my name to it.  It has beautiful Poinsettias on the front and she has used the Spellbinders to perfection. I have never met Maggie but she often leaves me  lovely comments and emails me.

The Blue one is from Christine and I have know her for the grand total of 46 years. We met in Woolworths in Helston when both our husbands where in the Navy at Culdrose. This card has been stamped and decorated with snowflakes and Fir trees.

Both of them are very special to me  and will take pride of place on top of my TV along with the other cards that I will show you over the coming days.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
