MAKING CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS WITH THE KIDS.....

James turned up as l sat to cut out the doves so we spent an hour or two making things for Christmas
brought back lovely memories of past Christmas decoration making...aaaaaaahhhhh!
HAPPY MOM

DOVES ARE THE  THEME DECORATIONS THIS YEAR...
Cards 1st though..ready for early posting..never managed that one before hehe

Found the square envelopes perfect to take a dove
TIP...
never make cards with out finding envelopes 1st..made that mistake before....couldn't find enveloped to fit the cards l made one year..ggggrrrr! lol
l cut out a few Doves and James punched extra snowflakes (you can never have enough) from the left over bits of card while we watched a Bond film on TV with the fire on and the candles flickering on the mantle
l did enjoy his company and the lovely memories of past decoration making together


ANYWAYS....this is what we came up 
I'll be using this Dove and others in lots of different ways over the next month
wood...fabric...paper...card...plastic...can you see the card l've used is embossed with 
MERRY CHRISTMAS?

I need more ink for the printer...don't you always?......and some sticky pads to lift the Dove a little bit 
but happy with the design and glad the hard bit has been done...
choosing a design to make!

ADORE ALL THE CUTTING OUT AT CHRISTMAS....
I love Christmas and cutting out.....give me a bit of paper and a pair of small cutting out 
scissors (had mine years and they still cut perfectly) and l'm a happy bunny hehehehe

One year l was in plaster and cut out hundreds of 3D stars in a rainbow of colours...
stuck them to the dado rail and the cat spent the whole of Christmas pulling them off and chewing them up! lol...memories ooooh l'm going all gooey again hehehe



THANK YOU ALL XX
for the good thoughts yesterday...it worked l feel lots better and the pains have gone...Doc says he thinks it a build up of grit...never gets to a stone but can be a bit of a pain!! hehe

Have a special Sunday hugs xx

  1. Hi Suz,
    So glad you are feeling better and what a lovely way to spend a day. The dove card is gorgeous, just be aware if you lift it up too much you might have to pay increased postage...I got caught out once, PO is very tight on the depth of letters/cards now.Really looking forward to seeing what other ideas you come up with.
    Hugs and enjoy your Sunday
