Magic of Christmas

Hi everyone. I've had another busy week - my mum and I took the boys to London to see Wind in the Willows in the West End. It was magical and I can't stop singing the songs. We also fitted in a trip to The Churchill War Rooms, an amazing and fascinating place, and a boat trip. I came straight back from London into another demo and some DT work but now I'm finally ready to blog again (and take a look at all of your blogs too, I promise).

Today's card is a step panel card, a new shape for me- I saw it in Quick Cards magazine and then on Jackie Trinder's fab blog so thought I'd try it at my demo.


I used Trimcraft's beautiful Magic of Christmas collection for this. I love the tartan elements in this one, especially the tartan reindeer and snowflakes. Full instructions for this card shape are in Quick Cards Issue 168.

This week is the last full week of the summer holidays and will to be a bit quieter I hope! We have the inevitable trip to the Tank Museum on Wednesday, only our second visit this year though!

Thank you for visiting today and for your lovely comments. Cathy x

Hi Cathy your card is gorgeous. Thank you for the mention. I do love this shape of card. We are hoping to go the War Rooms next week and we are booked to see Much Ado About Nothing at the Globe theatre. London has so much to offer. Take care. Hugs Jackie
