Special Delivery...

Hello everyone!!

Isn't it absolutely freezing out there??? I must admit the freezing fog that descended on us yesterday did make everything look so pretty and the sunset that we had here in London was amazing. It lasted for about 3 minutes and then it was gone but the colours in the sky were just spectacular!!

So, it's been another busy day here at Chez Williams'...a trip to the dentist this morning and a huge filling was the first thing to get over and at the moment, the injection is still here to stay!! I did try to have a cup of coffee earlier but that was a bad idea...the cream coloured carpet saw more of it than I drank!! lol!!

In the meantime, I thought in this run up to the big day, I would share all the Christmas cards that I have created over the last few months for Making Cards Magazine. All these cards have been featured in issues of the magazine, since October and if you would like to see how I've made any of these cards then back issues can be bought HERE!!
Some of you might remember seeing this card on the cover of the November issue and this is obviously a very special card that features a surprise in this pocket which I created using Authentique papers. I made the flower from the papers and added the "Noel" using the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Vintage Noel die to die cut chipboard which I then painted and enamelled with UTEE.

The folded carousel card.
The carousel card tied together and fully opened to show all the detail of the inside!

As always, I can't wait to read all your comments and I hope you like my little creation as much as I loved making it!!

Okey dokey, I'm off to put my presents that I've wrapped and decorated, under the tree and try and tidy up the bombsite that is otherwise known as "my house"
See you all tomorrow with another share and I promise that I am going to be dropping by to say hello to everyone once I've completed all my work and replied to the emails sitting in my inbox!!

Bye for now, stay warm and take care!
Love Emma xxx

Hi Emma

Hope your mouth gets better soon. I hate having fillings and the after-effects. Amazing carousel card and gorgeous wrapping. Same bombsite here too.

Oh lovely this is gorgeous! I love the different shape, and your details are as always stunning! Take care, it's so cold here too. Heating is on, stuff the cost! I'll just wear lots layers when it's not -minus temps!! Love Zo xx

Ouch! Dentistry is not a happy appointment - teeth are nothing but trouble coming, staying & leaving!

The cards you've made this season are simply stunning! And I just knew your presents would be prettily and cleverly decorated. The girl has it all - creative genes! Wisely used too.
