Hello my lovely friends. I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. I managed to have a little time in my craft room today and as I am so behind with Christmas arrangements (I haven't even had time to think about it much) I decided that any Christmas cards I get around to making this year must be very quick and very simple.
I started this one off by punching out around six circles with a circle punch, folded them all in half down the middle and adhered them together in a stack. Next, I adhered the two back layers to a plain white card front. Then I drew the string with a ruler and gel pen, added a computer generated sentiment and scattered three small gems, and called it done.
The beauty with this, besides being very quick and very simple, is that it folds fairly flat for posting and it's a fun design for the recipient.
Here are the photos.
That's it for today my lovelies. I hope you have a marvellous week, don't forget to wrap up warm, if it's as cold as it is here at the moment.
A quick update on Mum, she is so much better and almost back to her old self and it's lovely to witness! However, she will never be back to 100% - because, of course, there is no cure for heart failure - but she is as good as she can be at ninety and with the health problems she has. She still requires a great deal of support, but I have had a care package put in place for her, and it has eased my workload to a certain extent.
I have also arranged for a mobile hairdresser to go to her home to do her hair once a week and I still ring her every day of course. I also do all of her shopping and paying of her bills and so on, plus I will have to get all her cards and gifts that she loves to give at Christmas . . . and all my own Christmas shopping too (Mum is going to have Christmas with us), so still heaps to be going on with, so I had better say, cheerio for now. Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know!
If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.
