My Very Best Wishes for a Wonderful New Year to Everyone....  Peace and Happiness

Who would think I'd still be making a few Christmas cards... you might say I'm getting a good start for next year but really I'm making myself put the crochet hook down and just finishing off some card WIPs in a pile on my desk and join in a last few challenges for the year

Let's Squash It! challenge #27 - Snowflakes and Stars
   Here I've used a Starry border embossing folder (which was a freebie with Simply Cards and Papercrafts mag - Santa Clause is coming to town), and brayered yellow Distress Oxide over them and added some glitter glue

Can You Handle the Pressure December challenge - with a Twist of Snow    and I've used a favourite Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug - Flurries, teamed with some die cut snowflakes and lots of sparkly mist.

Of course candles are always Chrismassy... so this one is for the Christmas Kickstart challenge #69
stamp from STAMPlorations: Christmas candles, silver embossed and watercoloured with Distress Inks
Have a Wonderful New Years Celebration - I'll be pretending I stayed up late to see the new year but most likely I'll be fast asleep,  Enjoy Yours and see you all in the New Year, hugs Robyn

Here are the latest blankets I've finished this week.... just needed ends sewn in and their borders

Merry Christmas to ALL my Blogging friends

Looking forward to this time next week, when all the Christmas celebrations, cooking and eating are over once again and then one can relax and enjoy the moment and remember the events of the past year.

I've been busy with other things of late... visiting my mum for her 92nd birthday, having visitors stay, getting my Christmas cards written and sent, attending the girls end of year concerts, finishing off a few crochet projects and just a little time to make a few cards...

This one is for Just Add Ink challenge 634 - Anything but a card   - made using one of those 12x12 card pieces and adding a die cut tag

This one because while you're stamping one image you might as well make a TWOFER.

This one for Happy Little Stamper - Anything Goes with Dies December challenge 

and NBUS challenge #45     using Sizzix Folk Art Stencil die

And a just because one.... the image has been waiting on my desk for ages, I teamed it with some new papers and a sentiment sticker..  one can never have enough birthday cards

And lastly this stencilled card for the - Anything Goes,  Stencil Fun December Challenge, using a Tim Holtz Flourish Layering stencil

Looking forward to 2023, keeping happy, healthy and safe and most of all enjoying my crafts.
Wishing you ALL the Very Best for a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful, Safe and Prosperous New Year,  many hugs Robyn
