Last of Christmas

Hello Everyone,

Hopped of to the supermarket yesterday before work and picked up some plain roast dinners for my lady...after the phone drama, she still prattled on, so took them to her, and told a white lie, that they got them in store expecially for her for Christmas....well, she beamed at me, was very happy and contented,felt very I have 2 days left to make sure she understands to take them out of the cardboard box before she puts them in her will organise that on Christmas morning I think...

Have a couple of cards to share,, these are the last of my Christmas cards for the children, so I will just show with not a lot of tell...

The border behind the image is a load of punched snowflakes...the bow is a christmas decoration on a close peg.

Close up of Santa and his reindeer,,the nose of the deet was already black when I printed it..
This card is for Zach..Santa cloured with copics, and the deer with pencils.

Yay....mouse on a bauble...if I cannot  have an elf, then a mouse is the next best

Papers were from my stash, already prettied up.,mouse coloured with pencils,bauble with copics.
This one is for Tyla....

The last one for my Dad...

Poor Santa, stuck going down the

Open the card, and the chimney is on the roof,where it should
Just plain dark blue paper for the background, and I stuck the silver stars on it, the roof is just a piece of cardboard cut to shape.Santa coloured with copics and pencils,

I'm quite sure thats the last of the Christmas cards...if it isn't...well then, I have a head start on next

Off to work now,to see 'My Lady'...hope she didn't cook those dinners yesterday, I never thought of, she's not that bad...

Have the boys this afternoon as they are already on silly finishing school 2 weeks before Christmas....2 more sleeps...done everything, just a fish pie to make and a few salads, the weather looks pretty promising, wines are chilling, and the chocolates.........................................oh..

Well you see, I live on my own, and well, no one stopped me, and well, I just couldnt help it....

Shame on me........I only left 6 in the felt quite sick..even after taking the photos, I still ate

Lisa Minckler said...

Oh yes, I see you've met my evil nemesis, chocolate, as well...
They look innocent enough don't they? All sweet and cute in their little wrappers. Quietly sitting there adorning the box. But it happens, I hear them too, "Liiisa, Liiiiiisa, just one, it's okay, no ones looking..."
It's the only way to shut them HAVE to eat them all. I completely understand. :)
Your cards ROCK!!! All 3 of them, but I really love that your easel card has the roof and then the chimney...that's awesome!
Have a VERY Merry Christmas Chrissy and Happy New Year and THANK YOU for the WONDERFUL card in the mail. It arrived yesterday and you're GORGEOUS on it. :D
Hugs to you,
Lisa xx
