Gorgeous Cards

These are some of the gorgeous handmade cards I have received this year, I will post more tomorrow.

This gorgeous handbag card was made by Gill and it is just amazing the work that has gone into it. Its stitched, every page is decorated on both sides and the bag itself is covered and decorated so beautifully. Thank you so much Gill and for the box thats under my tree waiting for the 25th!

This card was made by my cousin, Sally. I suppose card making runs in the family!

Lynda made this one for me, she is brilliant at stamping and colouring and her cards are always so clean, crisp and well put together.

This card and pressie is from Kathy, I love the holly on the card, Kathy used Core-dinations card and sanded it slightly - in the flesh it looks just like fabric. Kathy also made me this brilliant calendar, the other months are on the other side and inside - its so clever and such a useful gift too. It was presented in a stunning box that Kathy had made too, she is really very clever. It will be beside my computer. Thank you so much Kathy.

My photo does not do this card justice, its stunning and from Kath. I love how she has added letters to our card candy - Merry Christmas Julie - and the shape of the card is really lovely too. Thanks Kath too for layering the white and red flowers together, had not thought of that and have since done it on some Christmas cards so thanks for the fab idea!

Last but by no mean least is this beautiful card from Eileen, Kath's sister so card making runs in their family too! Eileen is another avid stamper and her colouring is beautiful, just like Lynda's. What could be nicer too - a purple card - as Eileen knows its my favourite colour!

Thank you to all the ladies that have sent me cards, I will try and post pictures of all of them over the next few days.

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!
