Favourite cards for this year & Happy 2012 to All

After 3 attemps  at trying to get the favourite logo on top of the post & actually losing one of my favourites I'm leaving this selection & quitting before I lose any more LOl.
I've not been feeling the best & had my head over a steaming bowl, I need to go get into the party spirit now.
Have a great time whatever you do.
Best wishes for 2012

Wishing you all a Happy Christmas

Well I just finished my last card for my nephew's wife, it was all boxed & ready to go, we had a wee chat & a see you on the day, off he went..........No Picture, I was just so relieved the last one was off in time, completely forgot to get the camera out, Ah well  no worries.

Now better get some tidying up done, house badly needs a once over, some pressies still to wrap & a few snowman soups to put together along with some chocolate wallets.
All the M&S shopping done  plastics gone into meltdown & I'm not entering another one till I have to.
I don't have to think about cooking till Boxing Day as going to nephews for christmas, he does all the cooking & the men do all the clearing up, so a nice relaxing day, we just take things as they come & meal is well spread out.

Thanks to everyone who visits me & wish you a Happy christmas & a all best wishes for a happy healthy 2012.

Santa Arrives

I hope everyone is well & weather not too bad, it's a wee bit chilly here but very calm.
I was naughty & just bought this stamp after seeing it on Joanna Sheen's websight, ( so near to christmas too)I just loved it & I'm not really a Santa fan, much prefer snowmen.
I've kept it in the  vintage theme, using Bo Bunny papers & used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.

All White

This challenge is for all white except skin & hair, I quite like the effect but it's difficult to match whites in artificial light so hope it looks ok in daylight.
This is my first Tilda card for a while & I think I've had this a year & just inked it up, I buy stuff & then forget about it, let's call them senior moments, or in reality too many stamps!.

On to the card as I need to get to bed, didn't realise how late it is.

Take care tomorrow with all gales & night night

Another Girlie Card

This is for a friend's daughter & she loves pink, so hopefully this is ok, I've been trying to get on with Christmas cards & seem to spend more time looking for stuff, I've spent the last half hor looking for DST, it had just evapourated, still found it now behind the desk, I wasn't going to start a new one.
I've lost track of the time spent searching under piles of card & paper, you'd think I'd have learned by now to be a bit more tidy.
On to the card as I'm getting a bit tired now been on the go since 5am.
