Four More Graphic 45 Christmas Cards

Good morning all.

Labour Weekend is behind us for another year and what a variable weekend it has been, weatherwise. Nevertheless, it has been most enjoyable - we went to Lake Pukaki on Saturday to catch up with our family who were staying there, with three other families. It was very wet most of the day but what a lovely time we had, renewing friendships with Rachelle and Mike's friends. Absolutely super couples with their total of twelve children. The bonus was, being wet, they couldn't do all their sporty outdoor things, so had to stay inside with the OLDS!!  There was a small break in the rain, so they went out for a walk for about an hour, leaving Nana and Grandad to keep the fire burning and have a Nana nap!! Talk about consideration!

Back to the business in hand - I am going to share another four cards that I have made, again using Graphic 45, The Twelve Days of Christmas collection. Do hope you are all getting your supply up to date! Not all that long now until the 25th.

Think I've done my dash with Christmas cards now, although I still have to tutor a few classes - do enjoy that though!

Must go and enjoy the lovely sunshine we are having today - mind you, the past couple of days have been just super.

With very special blessings to you all and happy crafting or maybe gardening,

Graphic 45 Christmas Cards

Greetings to you all.
Another Monday has arrived and what a lovely day it is. It's a day when I should really be out in my garden - here's hoping! It looks so nice out there with all the Spring colour showing and of course there's plenty of weeds poking their heads through!

Today I am going to share three cards made with Graphic 45, The Twelve Days of Christmas. I think Graphic 45 have some very special ranges and I so enjoy using them when making cards.

That's it today ladies. Hope you have enjoyed this showing and are able to use some of the ideas for your Christmas cards - it's really not far away,  'til the big day, now! Just contact me if you would like to ask any questions - I would love to be a help. Thanks so much to the ladies who have already been in touch - you are all appreciated so much.

Trust you are all enjoying lovely weather wherever you are, happy crafting and may God bless you all.

Kaisercraft's Lady Rose Cards

Hello everyone.

Well, another Monday has arrived and as I have no excuse not to, will add a new blog for the week.

I have had a most enjoyable weekend with thirty of my patchwork friends - it was our Stavely Patchwork Camp weekend and what a weekend it was!! Lots of laughing, food, fun and we did manage to achieve some patchworking, in between the hilarity. I managed to put together my grand daughter's quilt so was rather pleased with that

Now, to put on my other cap!!.
Today I am going to share the cards I made for the Workshop Magazine, using Kaisercraft's Lady Rose collection, which is one of the October ranges. Another one of my many FAVOURITES!

Don't you just love the colours in this one and the vintage look?  Kaisercraft have done it again!!

Thank you all for taking the time to check this out and do hope you get some ideas for your next projects. It is great to be able to pass on a little of what one has learnt over the years.

Must away, happy crafting to you all and many blessings,

Authentique Cards

Good morning ladies.

Where has this week gone? We had a trip down South, as my elderly Aunty had died and the funeral was on Monday. We had a couple of nights away,  to visit our Farm family as well - there seems to be quite a draw to that part of the world! Hugh absolutely loves to head that direction, if at all possible. I think he may have been tempted to stay and do some tractor work but you know who's boss!! I need my cook at Geraldine and of course I couldn't do without him!

Now before I head to patchwork I must add this blog, with some cards I have made with the lovely Authentique, Renew collection. I loved using this range as the colours are so pretty. I don't very often use collections other that Kaisercraft but this one really caught my attention. Do hope you enjoy seeing what I have done.

Well that's it today ladies. Must away to my next appointment. Sorry I am late with this post but better late that never, they say!

 Have a great day everyone, happy crafting and God bless you all.
