Thank you for coming to visit and I know I always say it, but it makes me smile that you take the time to pop in and leave comments . So welcome to BARB and to JACKIESJEWELS too.
Halloween was great fun, we danced and danced until 2am. The journey home was horrendous though - pea soup fog! I have added a couple of photos at the bottom of both of us and of our daughter. She was our chauffeur for the night, so hats off to her for doing a stupendous job in that awful fog. OH and I won the prizes for best dressed male and best dressed female! That was an honour and a surprise.
Today's card(s) is my second attempt at this year's Christmas cards. I don't sell my cards as such but make my own and as I don't buy them I donate what I would have spent to my favourite charity. These will be hand delivered to special members of the family. I very rarely make the same card twice, but will make variations of a design I like. I recently treated myself to Sue Wilson's Poinsettia dies and I AM IN LOVE with them. Sorry it's a bit photo heavy. I was thrilled to bits with the results of my makes AND I don't do stamping, I'm loving these Poinsettia stamps though. I've entered this into the unicornchallenge blog - Christmas is coming
