Xmas Card of the Month

Just realized as I published my last post that today is the first Sunday of the Month. That means it time for the Xmas Card of the Month for April and a twofer on posts.This makes 16 cards sitting snugly in a case waiting to be mailed off and spread Christmas cheer.

This card was based on one made by Lynn Kolkun of Love the pine boughs and ornaments. I think this stamp set will make another appearance in the series.

Thanks for stopping by.



I've decided to enter this weeks challenge over at Pals Paper Arts. The mission this week was a colour challenge.

And my card to showcase these lovely colours. This was my sisters birthday card. As you can see, she was celebrating a very special birthday. (Shhh, don't let her know I told you how old she is!)

Thanks for stopping by.

Rocking Your World Friday Week 14

I've fallen off the radar over the last couple of weeks as things were very trying in my little abode. We lost our oldest bulldog at the end of October due to a rampant bacterial infection, and it looked like our youngest was following in his path. After an emergency surgery she was on the mend and is now back to her "wild-bullie" self.

This week has been fairly quiet, but that in itself is a most welcome positive after the last couple of weeks.

I received a couple of large boxes of happy mail--loads of new goodies to play with.

Had a lovely visit with my parents who haven't seen us or their great-granddaughter in too long.

A wonderful dinner of take-out sushi--one of my fave meals.

An Easter egg hunt for my granddaughter that we did this morning as she will not be here on Sunday. After much helping from Nana and Papa she found all her eggs and got the hang of actually putting them in her basket--priceless.

An extra day off from work is always a bonus. It's lovely not having to wake up with an alarm clock.

That's about it for this week, but I will leave you with a fun selfie Mr R took of him and Alessia. Love that they have the same expression! Linking this up with Annie for her Friday Smiles.

Well, I'm off to link up with Virginia at Celtic House and Annie and then order some take-out for dinner.

Have a super week and thanks for stopping by!
