christmas is coming

now I have  my stamps from GKD and raring to go ... so have  started with  a group of 6 for my soprano friends...i just love the feel  of  christmas  coming.. anticipation from  all those years ago.. watching  my  mum  making the mincemeat for  pies.. and christmas puddings with silver threepenny bits in there.. ( one for everyone) we always thought it was  just pure luck!.. and oh the excitement of hanging  one  of  my dads socks  on the end of thebed... and we were thrilled with the little presents and oranges/ nuts / crayons and books  in side on  christmas  morning.. unlike today  where pillow slips are  the go and presents downstairs too.. just goes to show  how much more affluent  this generation  is.

this card  is  made for the soprano's in our community choir.. I have collected  all the we can celebrate  each  one as it comes  up... (just another excuse to make more cards... .... its   addictive)
I just love this  bright and cheerful  tangerine colour.. and wondered if  icould put it with pink... hmmm not  bad.. gotta  be  more adventurous with my colour schemes.
This  little card  was  made for one of the group of friends  involved in a  card swap.. great idea  isnt it.. we get to enjoy the creativity of the girls.. and to make new friends.
this started out as a monochromatic card but then  I changed my  mind after looking through the new paper  pack  my daughter bought me for my birthday.. I used the roses  sheet.. its  just so pretty and  will go with almost any combination of paper/card

 I am mooching  in my craft room...cant sleep so thought I would make a card then try again. I found this  lovely  May  Gibb stamp of gumnut babies..   soo  very  Australian.. right now the kookaburra's are laughing outside my window... its  4.30 am... they are never
 I have so enjoyed making these cards .. they are more fun than the usual ones...
Was thinking its  time to  start getting things together for christmas cards.. yikes! where has  the year flown to..
Ok off for a snooze... see you  all later!
