Nearly a New Year!

I didn't post a lot before Christmas as I seemed to be quite busy!, but I did take some photos.  This is a photo I took for my December Daily album that I haven't yet developed.  I am not a flower arranger but at Christmas time I always make a fresh door wreath, two mantle arrangements, table centrepiece for my own table, centrepiece for my MIL's table, arrangement for DH's Grandmother and sister.

This is a photo of one of the mantle arrangements.  I included myself in this shot in the mirror reflection so that I would find my way into the Album!

I haven't shared many cards recently - here are two card sets I made for the Boy's teachers. I packaged them in boxes from Clear Bags. 

I used Hero Arts Butterflies Clings Stamp Set, Papermania sentiments, Fiskars threading water punch, DCWV Card blanks, my Big Shot for embossing - Swiss Dots folder, flower embossing folder, some Papermania gems and Hero Arts smooth gemstones.  I coloured with my promarkers and copics ciao markers.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season.
