Hope you are all having fun today - spending time with loved ones, exchanging gifts - and eating too much I expect (like me), lol.  I thought I would take a little time out to wish you all joy at Christmas, and bring to you the last of our Christmas images and projects (I think).  And also I would like to thank you all for your kind Christmas messages, and I look forward to lots more conversations and fun with crafty stuff next year.

Isabelle sent us some pics of a most gorgeous 'advent calendar' she had been making this year with friends, and I will share some of them here with you.  Such lovely detail!

And Daniele has been having fun with the Christmas 'Alice' Jolly Robin stamp:

Then I received a bundle of loveliness from Lynne in the post, and Malcolm took some photos.  Great the way she has used unChristmassy images to make such lovely Christmas cards - all stamps by Alice Palace and available on our brand new website HERE - fantastic!

And finally such a beautiful card by Lucy, and the embossed detail so perfect (stamp CI-369):

Thanks to everyone who left uplifting comments about our new website, and just a quick apology to Asia King about word verification.  I have tried moderation instead in the past, as I know exactly what you mean about reading the letters and numbers (almost impossible sometimes) - however because we have more than one computer linked up here it proved just too difficult to implement I'm afraid.  Very sorry about that!

It has also been so nice to hear about all your pets folks, after showing you the picture of 'Monty Moodle', and the pleasure they bring.  So here is the final word on Christmas Day from Monty (who is playing 'fetch' games with Malcolm downstairs as I speak).

Happy Christmas! What lovely projects, and your puppy is gorgeous! My SIL's Westie enjoyed her lunch today. She had a new jumper which my BIL thinks is very embarassing and he is refusing to take her out for a walk whilst wearing it. We threatened to knit her a hat with antlers to wear with it!
