IT'S NEARLY CHRISTMAS......

It's very nearly Christmastime, so I have been gathering together the last of the Christmassy makes by the team, to pop on our blog before the big day itself is upon us.  It has been almost warm here lately, and very unseasonal weather generally - great for dog walking and enjoying the great outdoors though, and we had a lovely day in Whitby today (Monty dog loves the sand and those beach walks).

My first makes tonight are from Coco.....




.... who has used CI-369 and CI-424, along with the doilies from CI-426 so beautifully in her creations.

Florence shared three more festive cards with us.....




..... using CI-327, CI-136,  CI-270 and CI-446.

Here is a lovely card by Joanna, featuring one of the images from our Christmas book....

Plus some very attractive cards by Sylvie .......






I'm particularly loving the New Year cards featuring the owl and the robin (from the Alice Palace stamp collection), and the wording from CI-438.

My final make tonight is this lovely idea and Santa in a bottle decoration by Helen - so sweet....


Many thanks for joining us here, and for all your encouraging comments again all year.  Have a lovely week ahead..

Festive hugs,

Jean x

Beautiful display of artistry and once again, displays how CI stamps/products will work to whatever the artist's preferred style is.
Has been such an inspirational year from CI and so lovely to be such a small part of it all.
Seasons Wishes
