I'm Back

Hi everyone, seems like forever since I posted. Been in hospital so I couldn't sit to do any cards and then picked up a stomach bug, hoo.... that's me feeling sorry for myself!! Well I hope that's it now and can look forward to Christmas and it won't be long eh!!! Hope you're all ready (says me that's nowhere near.. ha ha)
There is one good thing though, my dog Roxy has come into season early so at least I won't have the same pantomime as last year ( for those of you who didn't see last years post,, my MIL was sat at my beautifully decorated table whilst the dogs were under the table having a party of their own.... so embarrassing, bet the Queens corgis don't behave like that...ha ha.)
Well to get started again, I have my DT card for
'Lovely Hanglar Or Sweet Magnolia'
and can you guess the theme
....Ta Da....
Winter Wonderland
oh yes.. love making Christmas Cards,
So many fab new stamps to choose from and lots of twinkling glitter.

Magnolia - Peaceful Tilda and Peaceful Christmas Tree from the new collection. Coloured with distress inks.
Go Kreate - frilly square 7 for card shape
Dovecraft papers - Back to Basics
Spellbinders - Opulent Ovals
Magnolia doohickey - Slender Firs, sprawling ferns and cute wings.
Marianne - rolled flowers CR0163 and snowflake CR1227
Memory Box - Lindeman snowflake
Joycrafts - snowflake 2018
Glamour Dust, lots of it
Frantage - Shabby White.
Got a lot of catching up with you all, it may take a while but I'll get round to you
Have a super week.
Hugs Sue Xxx

  19. Sue, I am so sorry to hear that you have been so sick! Hope that is all behind you now! I have been so busy that I haven't noticed you were MIA. Some friend I am--if I were you, I would fire me!
    And I understand about the dog thing. We used to breed Persians. My MIL thought it was disgusting that we would watch to make sure that there was an actual breeding. And yet she thought it was OK to watch some couple doing the same thing in a pick-up truck behind her house. What's up with that? LOL!
    Love your wonderful card, Sue. You make the most magnificent creations! :^) Beautiful, soft colors; darling image; fabulous coloring; and all the die cuts and embellies are perfection! :^)
    Big hugs from your negligent friend, Penny
    P.S. Stay well now!

  20. Sue - this is gorgeous! So sorry to hear you've been so ill. Hope you are doing better.
