Happy New Year!

Mmmm a bit late I think. I've spent so much time over the last few days looking at other people's lovely blogs that I haven't blogged myself. I should be trying to do my DT card for Saturday but I've been sidetracked!

Everyone has been showing their favourite Christmas cards or favourite cards from last year but I haven't even blogged most of the Christmas cards I've made! So I thought I'd show you my family cards.

I made this one for my son.

I used die cut snowflakes and stamped some too.

I made this one for my younger daughter.

I love that SU set and I've used it in various ways. Here I stamped and embossed the Poinsettia on vellum and finished with some pearls.

This is the one I gave my elder daughter and her husband.

This was inspired by one of my friends who made a snowflake with a Joycraft die cut out four times and layered.

This is Poppy's card.

Aren't these LOTV Nativity scenes cute?

I thought Oliver would like this one.

He was quite excited about Christmas. Catriona gave us a copy of a DVD of his Nursery Nativity. He was a shepherd. It was quite unusual as they were all sitting on the stage in costume to sing but every now and again they showed film of them outside acting out the Nativity. At the end of the DVD they showed lots of film of them practising and also with a real live donkey.

Last but not least this is my husband's card. Inspired by a card made by a non-blogging friend. Not quite as elaborate as hers but I think men prefer plain.

Now I really need to get my DT card made for Saturday!

Apart from a little blip last Friday evening/Saturday my new broadband connection seems to be working quite well since I was connected on the 23rd so I hope I can get online easier now.

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up later. If you've  got a minute to tell me what you think I'll be able to visit you too.
