Christmas Cards

 
 
Hi All
 
Well I have finally made my last few Christmas Cards, not all I just run out of time
I made of few batches of  some of them and others just one offs, but,
they are all variations on a  theme
basically Black & Gold, and Black & Silver,
and all have a die cut Christmas tree, cut out of black card and either a
silver or gold tree fixed back in its place.
( well I had to utilize my new toy,  an Ebosser and how did I ever manage without it)
 
As usual these days I am having problems with my photography,
I do need some lessons I think.

Thank you so much for stopping by, all your comments
are so much appreciated, and now when I am feeling a lot better
I will be able to check out all your blogs.
Hugs

This one is for my Nephew Tom

The Grand Tour

 
 
Good Morning All
 
In a few days time we are off to Cuba on our holidays,
while we are away it is my OH 67th Birthday, so, I needed to make a card
to take with us.  As we are going to Cuba, which is famous for its old steam trains
in fact one of the hotels we have stayed in has trains engines and carriages  dotted about the grounds.
And the Coffee stations in the lobby is a hand made/painted mock up of part of a train, and the
entrance to the hotel looks like a railway station platform.
 
Right, back to my card because of this I knew I had to use
Yesterdays Dreams Gentleman's Edition CD by Jems Designs 
as one of the Folders is called the Grand Tour, which is a vintage Steam Train.
Wow, sorry about the long ramble.
 
I hope you like my creation and thank you for visiting my blog
and I will catch up with you all when we are back at the end of November,
and I will try and bring some sunshine back with me.
 
Hugs
