This year’s Sasha Christmas Card depicting three of my Trendon babies on their sledge out in the real snow. They are wearing Sashawardrobe and Dollydoodle fleeces, footless leggings and beanie hats, plus Ruthsdoll’s tights and Christine Durand’s knitted earflap cap and later Gotz original shoes.
One of my cards for trendy non-Sasha friends in aid of The Cancer Research.
Below are two other cards by the Spot Company. Love this little festive Robin.
One for the teenagers! I also had two other styles of cards, one in aid of the Arthhritic society and the other for Marie Curie Cancer Care and Save the Children which I’ll try to photograph next time I have the camera out.
A few of my Christmas gifts for family and friends. Unfortunately didn’t manage to take them all as was racing to catch the last posting date.
This years Mistletoe paper was purchased from Marks and Spencer with matching tags and lime green ribbon, silver and off white curling ribbon and silver bells from Hobbycraft.
Have not taken any of my daughter’s presents as yet as have only just finished wrapping those.
Was delighted as when I came to cut the paper I discovered that it is one of those that has the guiding squares printed on the back to enable one to cut straight.
I did buy a few twigs of artificial mistletoe to add to it if needed… as you will see on one of Chon’s presents on later post… but still am undecided whether to leave it on or remove it. Might instead add a sprig or two of real mistletoe at the end.
I thought that this cracker shape was quite pretty.
It is a lovely quality paper and for a backed silver foil was wonderfully easy to wrap with.
Here I have added a little bit of green twisted tinsel with little star shapes attached.
Have taken some of the presents at different angles so that you can see the decorative ribbons etc more easily.
I’m still wrapping my teenage niece’s (who are joining us for Christmas luncheon)presents but they are completely different to these as you will see.
