A very warm welcome to my blog, which is mostly about card-making, a bit about work and family, and a few odds and ends. I am fairly new to this blogging lark, so please bear with me if I make some glaring errors.

I'll be delighted if you would like to become a follower, so please leave me details of your blog, as I'd love to visit.

This post shows some Christmas cards I made for December 2009.

I've just become a bit more confident with copic markers, although not at all proficient yet - I'm working on it! Quite a few of the cards were hand-coloured: what my son-in-law calls "paint by numbers"

"Angel Wishes" stamp by Sugar Nellie from Funky Kits, with papers by Daisy Bucket. Holly leaves are punched, and poinsettias come from The Hobby House and have been sprayed with Glimmer Mist. Quite a bir of stardust Stickles too.

A Sarah Kay "Noel Charity" stamped image from Sir Stampalot, with papers from Craftwork cards. Snowflakes are punched with Martha Stewart punches, and pearl brads in the centre. More stardust Stickles to give some sparkle.

This stamp is another Sugar Nellie design from Funky Kits, called "Christmas Kisses", again using Daisy Bucket papers. The petaloo flowers from Stamps and Memories, and white Poinsettias from The Hobby House, have been coloured pink with copic markers, and sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I've used some green spotted ribbon from Poppicraft, and a circle sentiment. Holly leaves are punched, and there's lots more stardust glitter!
