Have A Very Happy Christmas Everyone!

Hi Peeps!

This is my last post now before the big day so I thought I'd show you my last Christmas card and take the opportunity to wish you all the best! May you have a wonderful time celebrating and enjoying the festivities....... hoping you get lots of scrummy new goodies too!!!

This is the last of my festive cards and I'm looking forward to making something different in the New Year....... I'm all sparkled out, LOL!

Be safe, be happy and have a fabulous holiday....... see you in the New Year!

God Bless and big hugs, Tara xxx

Just Magnolia - It's Christmas!....... a thank you and an apology!

Evening friends!

Just a very quick post to show you my entry into this week's Just Magnolia Challenge. I will add details of what I used on my card later as I'm off to catch the post and then out to see my son's Christmas play...... all go as usual!!

Just want to add that I am so thankful to those of you who continue to stop by despite my recent lack of blogging and I'm very sorry I haven't been blogging much or managing to leave many comments....... hopefully I will get on top of things again very soon........ and I'm pleased to say I haven't had any signs of a bad head since the weekend, YIPPEE!!!

Enjoy the rest of your week everyone...... hope you all manage to get the last of your Christmas shopping done ;o)

Basic Grey Week 10 - Pink, Blue and Cream......

Good morning everyone!

Hope you are enjoying the start of your weekend....... bet there are lots of you rushing round the shops now as I write this!! So much to do heh...... mind you, I bet there are a few of you sat reading this with a slightly smug smile on your faces thinking 'ha ha, finished all my shopping for Christmas'...... hmmmmmm, I used to be organised like that but I'm not sure what happened, must be my age, lol!

I must thank everyone for their kind words too...... I've been having some bad migraines again and far too many of them for my liking, so it's lovely to know that peeps care ;o)

Right then, onto today's card for the Basic Grey Challenge which is a colour combo this week...... pink, blue and cream. These are such pretty pastel colours for a Christmas card and I think you'll love the cards and projects my fellow teamies have made, very yummy indeed. This is the last BG challenge now until after the New Year, so you'll have lots of time to get creative.

I'm also entering my card into the Crafty Calendar Challenge for December which is Winter Sparkle...... I think my card qualifies nicely for that, with glittered wings and stars plus some very shiny snowflakes. I used one of the new Lily of the Valley stamps I bought last month at the NEC and paper pieced her dress with the BG Eskimo Kisses papers that I've used on my card. In addition, there are Prima Hydrangeas, QuicKutz reindeer and Leone-Em punched fern leaves, plus the usual extra bits and bobs from my stash.

Well I'm looking forward to watching X-Factor and Strictly tonight, aren't you? I'm rooting for Ali and Brian in the dancing and Joe in the singing...... who do you want to win?!!

Have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by......

Tuesday Taggers - A Christmas Carol......

Good morning everyone!

I'm afraid I'll have to keep this post short as I don't want to be on the computer for too long...... I've had an awful week for migraines, a real cluster of them.... I've barely felt like making a card or blogging and have taken as much rest as I can. I do have some special medication which helps with the pain but it leaves me washed out for days. Anyway, I really don't want to whinge as it's so boring I'm sure, plus I'm not getting on a downer because I am grateful for everything that's good in my life ;o)

I'm showing you a card I made to recently to try and boost my Christmas stocks..... falling well short now with very little time to go! I'll enter this one into the Tuesday Taggers Challenge where I notice the theme is 'A Christmas Carol'..... 'Hark the Herald Angels' fits nicely!! Big thanks to Jo for the image and sentiment ;o)The papers are Basic Grey and MME (I think) and my colouring has been done with Polys and Glamour Dust. The gorgeous flowers are from Tab's store, the berries from Tesco and the fern punch is Leone Em.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to visit you all really soon...... sorry my commenting has been so bad for the last few days but hopefully you can understand why!

Take care and enjoy the weekend ;o)
