Last Muse Christmas Vision of the year

 I so did not want to miss the last CMV of 2015 ! so managed to get a card made ...yeah I know it doesn't look anything like Betty's gorgeous and so Cas one.... but I did take inspiration from :-
The colours (neutrals and gold)
The shepherd in the nativity scene 
and the stitched panel
 and Michele if your are looking did you recognise the stitched panel ?? yup its one of yours! doesnt it just gleam and finish my card beautifully??
Well have to move have visitors this morning and afternoon ,dont you love Christmas you catch up with all the family members that you haven't seen all year! :)

Last Christmas card ???


Back view

How bad is this I forgot to do my MIL Christmas card ...oops !! I know that she likes it to be slightly different and a bit on the fancy side with bits and bobs (so not my style but i usually try!) but as I had to forego the fancy stuff thought I would do a fancy fold instead !happily she liked it.
Now off to do the last Muse Christmas vision before i go out for tea with friends

Muse 146

When I saw this weeks Muse card by Michele I burst out laughing it is just too.. cute for words and I loved it! and surprisingly for me I managed to get the 'big fellow' straight away, unfortunately that was the image that was going round and round my head when I should have been sleeping last night :)
(My card looked way better when it was going round and round in my head last night too btw)

I took inspiration from Michele's subtle nod to Santa by doing the same, and making his iconic suit with scraps of card and for the little elf - which I have none-  I went instead for the holly on his stocking , and just in case there was any doubt about who it was meant to be, I added the sentiment at the bottom .

(This will be my first card for 2016 Christmas so thanks Michele! )

Well off to see what I can fit into for the children's Christmas party tomorrow got to make the effort as they will all come dancing in ,in their party gear and I have already had many conversations about sparkly party dresses from the girls You've just got to love Christmas and wee ones hee he

Just wanted to wish you all A very merry Christmas and a Happy 2016 .....see you in the New Year!

Muse 145

At Muse it is Joan Bardee's turn to be our Muse .....and it is her last week as she is heading off to pastures new :( 
I had originally thought of a baby card because I loved the soft and delicate look of  Joan's card but couldn't get it to work out so on to plan B,always got to have a plan B!....and that happened to be a christmas card for the one of my husband's cousins.Wasn't sure at first as it is a bit in your face but I think its beginning to grow on me and she is a very girly girl !Hopefully you can see where Joan inspired me but if not :) ......
I have used the colours of Joan's card just  deeper shades.(Melon mambo and lucky limeade)
A circle in the middle with image with in it (W9 images)
and I noticed Joan had used tiny sequins as a bit of bling so added some gems to my flowers
finally a bow
Elizstewart love your interpretation of Joan's card ...one day I will work out how to comment on Flickr!!!
Thank you for taking the time to look
