Well it was time to open my June crafting parcels .............. the theme this month (chosen by yours truly) was "Christmas ......with a difference!". I have nothing against traditional Christmas cards at all, in fact I like them, but I started thinking and realised that not everyone i send cards to at Christmas is into the "traditional" sort, nor are they all religious, so i decided I needed to do some slightly "different" type cards, rather than the more normal "red/green, santa, snowman, holly" type.
I could hear Liz gasp and see Pat sink into her chair in despair but i showed no mercy and held to my choice!!! I had a look at both parcels and was pleased with what i saw. I have a couple of ideas for when I start on Liz's but yesterday I decided to go with Pats parcel first.
Liz joined me for a fun days crafting and between us we had everything we could want .............. except inspiration!!! Liz forgot hers and I've lost mine!! However after a day struggling ............. there were several long silences (almost unheard of before, LOL) while we both sat and looked at all the lovely bits we had and tried desperately to think what to do with them ..................... i finall managed to make 3 cards, all of which I am pleased with, so in the end it was another succesfull day's work!!


  1. It was certainly a different day, wasn't it.

  2. They're all great :o) I like what you did with the bottom card - that stamp really doesn't need any colour, does it ? :o) I don't remember putting the comical Father Christmas in the parcel, though - was he one of mine or one of yours ? I don't remember him at all !! :o)
