May Joy Fill Your Home This Christmas

Hello my lovelies, how are you all? Do ya know I love crimbo but the lead up to it drives me insane there is always sooooo much to do & think of & with the baby due just after crimbo its all hands on deck making sure we have everything. Ben & Megan finally agreed on a pram so me & Craig can now get that ordered.........we are getting it straight from the manufacturer instead of Mothercare as I will get a free car seat for them worth £115 which also clips onto the pram.........hows that for a bargain!!!!

Anyhoo as time is rather limited & I have soooo many crimbo cards to do I thought I better make more simple ones with no colouring involved........

Simple & easy............not at all!!!!!!! These prove sooooo much harder for me cus I pansy around far too much trying so many different ways lol.

Now the idea behind these cards is that they will go into an envelope.........yes then Vicky goes & puts a big ruddy bow on it.............dont figure lol.... Yep I was at the back at the queue when they dished out brain cells..........tbh I dont even think I joined the queue........I would of been dancing around like a fairy somewhere lol.

Love this ribbon I got it from a shop on ebay with a load of others. I attached a blue poinsettia to the centre & then made a pretty pin from my jewellery stash to add a bit of bling.

The papers are from last year & I heat embossed all the edges with white & silver powder & matted onto kraft card. The sentiment is from here & I inserted it into this frame here which I got last year & cut them all out with my nesties, added a few blue gems & bobs your
Inside has been decorated simply.

Well I'm off to do some catching up with you all so I will see ya soonies.
Welcome to my new followers ((((waving madly like lunatic)))))))) lol.

Thank you soooo much for stopping by I really appreciate your time, even more this time of year as I know how busy we all are.
Squishy huggles to all xoxoxox

Oh what a great card Hunny! I love that great big bow; even if it is harder to make flat into an envelope:0)

Love the colors and that sentiment as the focal point is great!

Two words I had to look up from this post: crimbo and pram. Thanks for making me learn something new:)

Gorgeous card, hun. What a luverly sentiment!! Wouldn't it be funny if your grandchild was born on the same day as my Sam - his birthday is 30th December!! So it's possible! Hugs, Marie xxx

Wishcraft said...

Oh you do make me laugh hun! I know my cards are nearly always simple, but I'm hardly ever quick - I pansy around too much too lol :o)

Gorgeous card hun, love the framed sentiment and lovely colours.

Thanks for the help with the LOTV squares too hun... although I don't technically 'need' any now, because I might have been on the LOTV site and might have bought quite a lot of the A4 die cut sheets and some of the fancy corner stamps might also have slipped in my basket... oops! Lisa x

Sue B said...

Aww Vicky I was thinking exactly the same. That I will have to do some simple Christmas Cards as I have misjudged how many I needed!! But then even with the simple ones, I faff about with them trying this and that. Then Like you, I put a bow on or something heavy and then think about fitting them in the envelope or cost of the postage LOL
Anyway, your card is really gorgeous!! Beautiful paper and sentiment and love, love the big bow!!! Stunning card.
Hope you had a lovely weekend!
Take care
Hugs Sue xx

The two words that sprung to mind when I first set eyes on this one is beauty and elegance, that sentiment looks super as the central focal point and that bow is awesome.
