Happy New Year!

Happy New Year friends!!!!!!! I can't believe how quickly the Christmas holidays have come and gone - only one more week and the kids are back at school! We have son no.2 starting prep this year - he's much shy-er than his older brother and not so excited about this new stage in his life, so we'll have to see how he goes? :)

I thought I'd finally get around to posting the last few Christmas cards I made for our friends this year - I fell IN LOVE with the Smashed Glass Glitter - so so pretty and even though it does make a bit of a mess, its much easier to clean up then the fine glitter! :)

All fairly self explanatory - I have absolutley LOVED Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler this year - makes for a great tradtional christmas card. I took inspiration for these cards from Tina White who presented at November's Brisbane Regionals - I LOVED her card and have cased the feature panel from it...

And a close up shot of that yummy yummy cherry cobbler embossing powder! How scrumptious is it!

And on a Crumb Cake background. I've used the Music Notes Wheel on the background of both card bases.

And of course the Seam Binding Ribbon. This stuff is so simple and easy to use - I LOVE it!.

Inside each card we also included a photo of our family with this lovely quote written across the top -

"From home to home, from heart to heart, from one place to another, the warmth and joy of Christmas brings us closer to each other."

I have one more Christmas card to show you in the next couple of days and then hopefully I'll be back in routine and have more fun craft to share with you.

See you again soon!!! :)
