Purple Bauble

Hi Everybody,

This little card for Christmas has used some Distress Oxide Inks for the background and I have used clean water to blur the look.

The bauble on this was from a stamp that came with a magazine some time ago and it was given away in a previous Friday Freebie.

I will continue with the FF in the coming new year, and there will be more lovely gifts coming your way, so please keep adding your names and comments each week.

I can't believe that Christmas is nearly here again and although this has been a tough year for me I have been trying to keep my mind occupied as best I can.

I have brought you lots of new dies and stamps to add to your Card Making Magic collection and there are lots more to come. 

Some will be on Hochanda again too in the very near future so I hope you can join me there.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  7. Hi Christina
    Sorry I'm late in replying to your post. I love your card and I cannot stress enough my thanks for your brilliant collection. I already have quite a lot of your sets and plan to collect many more in the future. Time flies so fast and it doesn't seem a year since you lost your treasured Griff. My thoughts are with you all the time and marvel at the way you have coped with your loss. It's good to have such a supportive family to help you through such a traumatic time. Take care lovely lady
    Hugs and best wishes

  9. I know this has been a very difficult year for you and your family. I think you’ve been amazing staying in touch with your followers. I’ve been absent from posting very many comments this year but I have tried to look in on your posts as much as possible. This year has been my most difficult ever as I lost my Mother unexpectedly in February and my brother in September after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. My husband and I have spent months away from home this year to spend time with our family but came home at the beginning of October. I know losing those you love is the hardest thing ever to deal with and the way you have continued to move forward has been inspiring. Thank you for sharing your talents with us and being an inspiration. God bless you.
