Jingle bells, jingle bells.....

My dear bloggy friends!

We are here - 3 days before Christmas - I bet you have all decorated your trees, sent off your cards and wrapped up your presents! Well I am almost there....I have made all my cards and sent them off and I have decorated my tree but I haven't wrapped up my presents....I am doing that this afternoon! First time ever I have so much work done before Christmas eve!!! Does that mean I am more organised??? No not really - well it did help that I was at home for almost 3 months and did most of my cards during that time! Also my daughter was a big help with the tree decorating !
Anyway our weekly meetings most go on and here is my desk of this week.......nothing much going on, one of my last cards on display! A peek on the right...



A peek on the left.....


 The card up close and personal - I love this Inkadinkado stamp - sooo cute!


A last word about making cards - I did make a lot this year and some were complicated some  had a very modern tone, some were vintage, grungy even - some I like more then the others! I think that although I have never been to any cardmaking course or workshop I have learned a lot - thanks to so many ladies who put tutorials on their blogs ( for free) and give us all a chance to learn! Here is an example of a card I made recently and like very much! The background is one of the new Hero Arts stamps, what I really like about this card are the trees -  they are made with washi tape - just love the simplicity of the design! So cool!






 And with this card I wish you all peace, love and happiness! I thank every one of you WOYWW-ERS that have visited my blog this year and commented on my blog - when I started I never thought anybody would be interested - now I have 72 followers - amazing!
Have a very merry Christmas! 
Lots of hugs to all of you,
Cardarian

  3. I love that rich turquoise you have used on the last two cards -stunning.
    Afraid all my tree decorating, card writing and parcel wrapping was done by last weekend - I worry too much if it isn't all sorted by the time me tree goes up.
    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

  4. I love the snowman in your header, tipping his hat. And the card of the snowman with a bird on his nose is just precious. Your trees are just beautiful too! Good job all the way around!!
