Teachers Cards

It was a rather rushed effort this year to get the teachers presents and cards done. I made up gift baskets of assorted christmas foods such as white christmas, rum & raisin balls, apricot balls & caramel ginger tartlets to name a few. Thought I would share these cards with you now before I totally forget. Hope you all have a crafty day!

Christmas Card Time Again....

Seriously where do the years go each year? Life seems to get busier and busier and no sooner do we pack up the Christmas tree than we seem to be unpacking it again. Since I am up early trying to enjoy some QUIET time I thought I would share a few of my favourite cards from this years efforts! As some of you will know when it comes to my christmas cards I tend to keep them fairly simple as I always seem to end up making so many of them. This year I stopped just short of 30 handmade cards. All of them different.... no two the same! I can't help myself! There is certainly nothing wrong with creating all your cards the same but I just don't seem to be able to do that! Have yourselves a great day everyone and thanks for taking the time to stop by and check out my blog! Hugs Shirl

Twisted Sketches #88 - JOY

Well friends this is officially my last Twisted Sketches card for my term. I have had a ball creating for the lovely Anam and working alongside all the other uber talented ladies on my DT! Thank you so much girls for the support & kind words on my blog! You never cease to inspire me each week with your creations.

For this sketch both DT teams came together to produce some stunning cards so please be sure to head on over to the Twisted Sketches site and check all their wonderful creations out.

Our final card had the twist of the word "JOY". I think being so close to Christmas a few of us went the obvious way of a festive theme... me included. But, of course, I just had to go the purple twist all the way.

Hope you enjoy my last card of the term and thank you all for the support!
