 Hello everyone,

Lockdown has eased for most of the country here in NZ. Auckland still in level 4 lockdown, but the rest of the country can go into level 2 with slightly stricter rules as from midnight tonight..[I.30pm here as I'm writing this post..we were locked down so fast again this time that the cases of Covid Delta have remained in Auckland only, 20 a day now, which is great, they are getting it under control..

So lockdown, what did I get up to..well, I made all my overseas Christmas want to see them?

Got my cardstock and stamping platform, gold embossing powder, heat gun all to the ready..then stamped and gold embossed all my panels??

Then started  my envelopes...just plain black stamping in the top left corner..

So panels and envelopes all ready..oh dear, not a good photo!!..cant see them.๐Ÿ˜Ž

All the panels lined up across the top of my desk..mmm, can't see them here either!..

Oop's, that was not  good editing...still can't see anything..

Missed again...๐Ÿ˜‰

Crikey, you would think I didn't want you to see them...๐Ÿ˜

Oh, here is the envelopes, that's a good shot..

Oh, well, I tried, but if I have your address you will see one for real late November..
Merry Christmas everyone..

Oh, the suspense is building. I really don't need to see them, if they come from your studio, I know they are beautiful!

Great news about your lockdown. Here we rather have any restrictions. But, I still stay careful.
Great photos. You're such a teasing But the sneak peeks are promising. Those enbelopes are so beautiful. Hopefully they stay safe on their long trip

So glad to hear about your lockdown easing up a bit my friend! Really hope the entire world can get a handle on all of these variants as they will continue the more this thing spreads. HUGS to you all! It's a wonderful time spent getting those overseas Christmas cards ready and a great idea to get ahead of the game. I think you've teased us a bit about the cards because what I do see looks pretty cool! ;) The envelopes are very pretty my friend!! Take care!
