Card Recipe

This week 52CCCT have given us a card recipe.
Something old, something new
something borrowed, something blue.
Nothing too hard to frazzle the brain so........
My card stock and the lace are old,  DP and snowflake die are new.
Stamp is one I borrowed from my niece and the whole thing is blue.
All the edges have been distressed with Tumbled Glass.
Love that colour.

Am entering this in:

Thanks for dropping in.

Christmas Holly

Hubby has improved greatly since Easter and I am now getting 
long term extra help with him.
So we are getting into some sort of routine again.

I have had so little crafting time and am way behind with making my Christmas cards

So much to do so little time.

A very big thank you to all of you who have been dropping in
Life is not so easy these days but I hope
to keep making cards although crafting time is now very short.
I had my oh so brief trip to my favorite craft store over a month ago
would you believe I still haven't unpacked all the goodies I bought.
No where to put them!!!!!!!
The house is still in such a mess from the bathroom reno.

Now do you remember I told you my Big Shot had died and I bought an EBosser.
Well we took the BS to pieces thinking the cogs had broken
but they were fine.  So my grandson explored further 
and taking the working part out of its housing,
he found the bearing were dry so gave them a spray
and what do you know it is working like a dream again.

Here are a couple of very quick cards that I have made this week.

The second one is for those pastel people and it looks so much nicer in RL

I am going to enter them both into Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge
