Resurfacing with some Christmas Cards

It's been a long time!
I have been into creativity but not into cards. Crochet and cookery seem to have taken their place. I have also been tired, too tired to really come up with yet another idea. The thought of searching for the right stamp, the right paper, the right embellishments and then having to make it all come together was too much.
But I never lost the spark thanks to Pinterest. I love Pinterest! The Christmas cards this year I have seen have been inspiring, hence the desire to make a few. And why shouldn't I share them? Perhaps because I feel just a bit guilty that I haven't been leaving comments on your blogs. I have been looking and loving though!


Hero Arts stamps are still my favorite and go-too everytime.


and finally, I found some Christmas tags in an old magazine and turned them into a card centre piece:




with a little close up of the labels which I decorated with gold sentiment and embossing.



Wishing you all a very happy and BLESSED New Year!

  5. Beautiful cards Jacqueline. Do not feel as though you have to comment - it can become a real bind, and I stepped back for awhile this year as I was feeling overwhelmed.
    May your 2018 be filled with the indescribable love and joy that comes from God
    Blessings

  10. So happy to see your beautiful Christmas cards! I've always been inspired by your style! I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season. I know what you mean - I lost the energy and mojo too, but got back in to the second part of this year. Now I'm struggling again - but hopefully will find my way later this month. Enjoy your cooking and crochet:) Lovely pics of your family.
