Merry Christmas

Firstly, I would like to wish all my followers and everyone in blog land a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, as I think this may be my last post before Christmas or else it is not going to happen in this house!! I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments and encouragement that you all give me and for helping me with my confidence. Thank you all so much!!
Secondly, conservatory update, it's not going to be this Christmas, that's all I am going to say as I am so disappointed!! But to be fair the weather has been against us since we started.
Now down to this card, it's Hubby's Christmas card!! As he is a fanatical fisherman, how could I resist this stamp!!
I can enter this one into the Sophisticat Challenge Xmas theme - Anything goes

Coloured with Copic Markers
Spica Glitter Pens, Crystal, green and red

  2. Jo your card is gorgeous, such a cute image just perfect for any fisherman, the papers, charm and sentiment they are all fab hunny.
    Sorry your conservatory isn't finished I know how much you wanted it to be done. Hope you have a lovely Christmas and New Year

  3. Jo I forgot to say I feel it's only fair to warn you that I'll be inviting myself to stay in the New Year so I can come and stalk Robbie lol

  4. Hi Jo, oh bess, don't be too sad about your conservatory...just think it's one less room to clean.... and with christmas on us it's most likely for the best... I am sure if it was all done and decorated and someone had a festive accident you would not be best pleased...

    So keep your chin up and have a wonderfull christmas....

    Love the card by the way, those high hopes are fabby...and another fishing widow I see......haha...

    you take care and enjoy christmas

  9. Hi Jo

    Thank you very much - it is so appreciated. I did not get done all that I wanted to do, but the majority of people got a handmade card, which was the main thing.

    You have a great selection of cards of your blog - just lovely.

    Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.


  10. Thank you for your lovely comments dear, they mean so much.

    Hope you have a terrific New Year

  13. Hi Jo, thank you for the well new year wishes... I send them back with lot's of love...
    It's been a hard year, I take great comfort from you and the likes...
    Since blogging I have found a wonderful new world, I am not one for craft group's, as I craft too slow... but since finding blogland I have found so much help and encouragment, it's been great...
    I can learn as I go, at my own pace...with the addition of some lovely fellow crafter's along for the ride...so to speak...

    Happy new year

  14. Gorgeous card Jo. Love the santa image and the colours also. Hope you and your family have a fabulous 2010. Hugs Michele x
