The Christmas Ones that nearly got Away!

Just a bunch of cards that didn't make it on to the blog before Christmas - and a few photos of our tree etc to round it all off.
It is a curious thing that I always find its last few sets of cards I make that are the ones I'm most happy with - it happened again this time with these ones

This last one is the card I made for my Hubby.  It's quite a large card, with lots of stencilled snowflakes in red and silver, and an aperture with a silver stocking dangling in it.

I made it to match our Red, Black and Silver 2015 Christmas colour theme - because I'm sad l;ike that!

Here are a few photos of the tree etc.

And finally  the dining table with the 2 crackers I made for us - they weren't for 'pulling', but did have some little treats inside!

So that's it for another year. Thank you for visiting, I hope you will leave a comment :)

Great idea Kathy - I make loads of cards but don't blog about all of them. Lovely to see all your other cards and Xmas decorations etc. Happy New Year! Shabneez xxx

I recognise that third one down ;o) - it's lovely (as are the others), thank you! Your tree is beautiful but I don't envy you the job of taking all those decorations off and packing away, that's the bit I really hate!

Always love your co-ordinated Chirstmas decorations. It's just not possible for me. The decorations come out and kids are delving in the box with abandon and there's no stopping them. This year I tried for a green and pink scheme with a little gold but had smurfs hanging in the middle of it!!

Great cards Kathy, I especially like the little stockings. I always forget to take photos of cards and then I can't blog about them. Cathy x
