That Special Time of the Year...

Good  evening everyone, I hope you are all well and keeping busy.
What on earth has happened to the weather this week, its been a funny kind of day here, it started with the sun shining and the wind blowing which took the warmth away, then it went cloudy and even cooler then this afternoon it started to rain for a while. I have a feeling that summer has passed.
I have been busy making christmas cards as I have quite a few to do and I like to get them out of the way, luckily I have a few from last year which is a help.
last week I ordered the new Tonic Holly Rings Dies and the Frond Dies and I must say they are fabulous, so here is my first make.
 I used an 8 x 8 white card, layered with pearlised copper card, white card embossed with an embossalicious folder again copper card placed behind holly die circle, then stampedsentiment and embossed with Heat it Up copper. Die cut the frond along with poinsettia dies.
I would like to enter this into:- No 71 -  Winter Wishes No 45- Christmas
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment they are always appreciated

Oh my goodness I cannot believe it is nearly a month since I updated my blog,
(hangs head in shame).
Well I will explain why, since my great granddaughter was born and all the photographs that have been taken I decided it was about time I actually played with Craft Artist which I have had for over a year oops lol, so I joined the Serif Craft Artist Users Group on FB. Wow they have been a great help. Thank you ladies. For the first week I spent hours trawling the web for free digikits to add to Serif, yes there are loads, then just playing, the best thing is nothing gets thrown in the litter bin you just delete and start again, yes the delete button was used quite a few times to start with lol.
I won`t bore you with all the pages that I have made at once, there are 20 of them. I don`t want to chase you away lol. I finally finished the book yesterday.
So here are just a few of my really favourite pages.
This one is the first page.
I would like to enter this one into:-
Please delete from your challenge if its not to your rules for the challenge.

Well I had to include myself lol.
I still have a lot to learn.
