I have been a very bad blogger lately - not posting or visiting - I am so sorry!  I have been finishing my Christmas card making, writing and other Christmas stuff which I find quite difficult since I have had ME/CFS. All done now though so slowly getting back to the land of the living!  Here is one of the more simple cards I made and I think one of my favourites!  Although saying that, I have really liked all the Christmas cards I have made this year - usually I make them all quite similar but this year I have done a variety - much more fun!  Last year I only managed a couple so I am pleased I managed them all this year.

I don't know who makes the gorgeous Santa image as I had some of these images from a stamp I borrowed from a friend a few years ago - I must look for it myself cause I love it!  I cut it out with the awesome Spellbinders die, matted on red card then popped on the centre of the card base.  I added some glitter and that was that!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

That's Crafty - Anything Goes

These are both fabulous challenge blogs and definitely worth a visit!

Thank you so much for visiting and sticking with me - I really appreciate it so much!  
Take care. Christine xxx

Hi Chris,

I love your Christmas card. Isn't it funny how the simplest of things turn out to be our favorites! I'm all for that.

Thanks for visiting the post about the candles. I really enjoyed making them and bought more supplies to make more. I also bought some coloring so we'll see how that turns out.

I hope you're having a nice holiday!

Oh, wowza, Chris, that spectacular Santa image really lends itself to that brilliant die! It's perfection and totally CASlicious! I hope your Christmas was wonderful and I wish you all the best in the new year with less flare-ups and lots of crafty time!! Hugs, Darnell
