Christmas Tag

Hello ladies, hope you are all well!
I have been in Batislava in Slovakia, Eastern Europe for eight days, for our yearly Derek Prince Ministries Reunion called FNO (Fellowship National Offices) where all the leaders of the DPM offices all around the world meet for sharing and prayer. If you want to read what DPM is, here is the link.

Batislava is a beautiful historical City which used to be under Communist Regime, but that was not so noticeable. The peaceful atmosphere in the City center and the lovely restaurants were a great attraction and addition to the wonderful time we had. Eating cabbage soup with dumplings outside, listening to live Jass was just great! Our Hotel was situated on the banks of the Danube river and we  had sunny weather every day!
Then we had a stop over on our way back in England, which gave me the chance to visit my brother and sister who live near Stansted Airport. I enjoyed that so very much, will have to do that more often.
I was asked by my sister to share on Monday evening at the Church's ladies night, which just happened to be at that time and I was able to share what the Lord had done in my life to a group of at least twenty ladies - so nice to be able to speak in English for a change. So, all in all, a lovely time, but lots of work when I got home, at the office as well, so not really much space to craft.

This is my niece Jennifer, me in the middle and my sister on the right.

I do have a little Christmas tag share. I don't think I will be able to make all my own Christmas cards this year, it seems to be such a daunting task to me nowadays.

I love this reindeer - thanks to Sue from Suzz's Stamping Spot for these. I found a stray tag which I stamped with a definition stamp from Hero Arts. Stamped the reindeer with two different snowflake stamps. Added a doily and the black panel was a scrap piece of paper.

I hope to be back soon but I have guests arriving on Thursday for a week and I will be preparing for a huge meal for 11 people, trying out recipes and preparing myself well in advance!

Have a lovely week and thanks so much for your support!

  9. What a lovely picture of you and your family! I love your card too, great colors and the reindeer is so precious! Making Christmas cards for everyone seems a daunting task indeed but I am going to try this year! Hugs, Hanneke

  10. So good to hear about your travels to Bratislava Jacqueline, ( Slovakia is one of my favorite places I've visited). Such a precious picture of your sister, niece and you. That's so special to meet up with family, I'm glad you enjoyed your time:-)
    You are using that deer die so beautifully, love your card!! Lots of love and hugs.

  11. It sounds like you had a wonderful trip Jacqueline and it's always nice to touch base with family. I know what you mean about all those XMas cards that need to be made, I have a pile too but I'm not sure how I am going to get to them all. It might have to be a very simple CAS design that I repeat for everyone (that will be a first for me). I love your tag, such pretty colours and that reindeer is really stunning. Take care and happy cooking.

  12. hey Jacky your lovely sister (that's me) is on the right! silly
    Lovely picture


Thanks so much for your visit - I so appreciate it!
