Merry Christmas 2017

Hello there to all my crafty friends and followers.

First of all,  I apologise for my lack of blogging and visits over the last couple of weeks.  I've had one of the dreaded Christmas bugs that have been going around and it seems to be taking me some time to get over it but I couldn't let today go without wishing all of my crafty friends and followers a Merry Christmas and to say thank you for all of your kindness over the last year.  I really appreciate your visits and the kind comments that you leave as I know how busy life can get at times.

Christmas for me is a time of reflection.  A time to remember loved ones who are no longer with us and a time to be thankful for all the good things that we have in life.  Having lost my own Dad at Christmas many years ago and loosing a very special Aunt on Thursday, my heart goes out to everyone who may be in grief, or sad and lonely at this time.

With three young Grandchildren, I'm also reminded of the magic and excitement that Christmas brings and we are so lucky to have our families close by.  Wherever you are, and whoever you're with this Christmas,  I wish you peace, joy and happiness.

Here's a card for you.  It's one of the cards that I've sent out this year to family and friends, although the colours did vary.  I've used a photo programme to add a few snowflakes as I though it looked more festive:


MERRY CHRISTMAS 2017

Thank you so much for the very kind words you left me and I am so sorry to hear about your own loss and hope that the New Year will bring many things for you and your daughter to smile about, That is such a wonderful idea to write them in a diary.
