There are stockings to hang

                          Well, hello there ! Wow,  it is great to see you . Thank you so much for calling in..

I thought today, I would share some Christmas cards for your  perusal . These have been made at the end of last year . Now,  if I am able to, I would love to make a Christmas card a week and post/ share it . I live in hope !!

This first one is for a kit to be shared with my Tuesday craft friends .

Real Red card base .Papers for matte and banners from my stash . Star embellishments from SU . 
The image of stocking is from a retired SU set , stamped twice to be 3D . 
The sentiment is from SU , Christmas Messages.  

These are a few of the last made for 2017 ..


Today is a little cooler than the 44 degrees we had yesterday , thank goodness . I bet my daughter in law,  Rachael, is not sorry that her and family are not still at Roxby Downs where it was 46 degrees . I had to lay down the law about putting on the aircon here as hubby said that it was too expensive to use all day , while I argued that if we did not ,  we would be wasting the money that we spent putting solar panels on .

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough. - Meister Eckhart 

May the weather be kind to you .

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .

Flowers make me smile.

Hello craft pals , welcome to my room .
I am absolutely thrilled that you have popped by and hope that you like my share today .

My happy aunt,  I am shocked to see that it was in November that I last blogged .

And, I have been remiss in visiting you all too. So, I must say sorry for that .
I must admit that apart from being time poor a little laziness had crept in too .

Just as well that this blogging and /or card making caper can withstand the lack of attention and it only takes a spark of inspiration to fire up the enthusiasim again .

So share a card today

White card base ,Older SU paper ,MFT die for Smile . 
Flowers and butterfly from my stash. Bling from SU. 
Sentiment from MFT. 

I wonder if there is a challenge that I could enter .
Off to search . 

Most smiles are started by another smile.

Sending a smile to those who long for one and a hug to those who need it .

   Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
