Debbie sent us her Card before Christmas but with the festivities and two new grand-children (boy they can take up a lot of time) we are now just catching up on a backlog of jobs.

These two deer on the crest of a knoll with the Northern Lights effect in the background is superb.  This is a terrific Card with dazzling colour, individually applied and washed in to beautifully blend. You can feel the calmness of the forest, hear the sounds of the night….. well done Debbie.

Our woodland friends have Christmas too and for this card Debbie used stamp

Leah’s Pumpkins

As with most families who have cats, we have had more than op07-cats-halloweenne. Midnight was an independent black cat that always challenged anything in his territory, including a duck (Midnight’s first broken leg). He was the inspiration for the Nine Lives of Midnight set (P968). He eventually used up all of his nine lives and some years later we adopted Leah (F475 Halloween Haunting) who was a definite Shady Lady. Leah never met a person she didn’t like and felt that people were put on this earth to pet her.
In memory of my feline friends, please enjoy making this Halloween card.
