Playing in the Snow.

It is time again for the girls in the Christmas Card to show our next makes. It is with heavy hearts though  that we will be posting our cards today  as we have lost one of our own. Shaz lost her long battle against Cancer yesterday.  Rest in peace now Shaz. 
Lorraine set the theme this time which is Playing in the Snow.  I found these freebie papers in my stash going back to Dec 2015 from Making Cards Magazine by Hunkydory and managed to make 3 cards from them. 
I just layered and matted in different configurations using red and navy cardstock from my stash. Gems were from my stash as well.  

 Card 1 using the main sheet of paper and one of the sentiments fussy cut from another sheet. 
Card 2. Using mostly the sentiment sheets and image  that already had the border on it in the design. 
Card 3. I was left with 2 circle sentiments  with the same image on them and made the card below.  I cut the middle from one of the images and made an acetate window placing the  cut middle on the inside of the card. The acetate had snowflakes on it which I thought perfect as the boy is throwing a snowball.
Card slightly ajar. 

I am going to be short this month so will need to make a few more before the next show and tell. 

Thankyou to you all for your well wishes. I have never had such a drastic reaction from a vaccination  before. I was advised to not have the Pfizer  one for this very reason due to all my allergies  with certain drugs so am not looking forward to having the second dose in 11 weeks. I am slowly feeling back to normal after being out of it for 72hrs.  The Doc had his vaccine on the same day albeit at a different location. He was supposed to have the Pfizer but they had run out by the time of his appointment and so ended up having the same one as me.

Oo sad to hear that you lost a good friend Mrs A .....
Your Christmas cards have been made very beautiful again, I have looked at them piece by piece and I have no preference, think they are all TOO sweet.
I understand you don't feel like the next vaccination brrrr.
Lots of love xxx

What a fabulous array of cards Valerie. Sorry to hear you have had such a bad time with your vaccine jag. I got the Astra one and never felt a thing. I am finding it hard just now too as my sight is rapidly deteriorating but I do have an appointment on the 23rd February so hopefully they can do something to help. It’s my distance vision mainly . Hope you feel better soon. Hugs Rita xxxx

Sorry to hear that you lost one of your friends.
Your cards are all fabulous.
Can imagine that you don't look forward to the next vaccination.
I haven't the slightest idea when it will be my turn. My almost 94-year-old mother will get hers (Pfizer) on 26th February.
Have a great Valentine.

Fabulous cards Mrs A - I remember having those papers too.

A beautiful collection of cards Valery Anne. Sorry to hear that you've had a bad reaction to your Vaccine. Hubby had his yesterday but had the Pfizeer one, so far so good. I have heard of quite a few people having had a reaction to the other vaccine though. I have a little longer to wait.

Viv said...

I really hope you are on the mend Mrs A. What a torrid time.
Not expecting ours until the end of March/beginning April according to current calculations - not looking forward to it but know it's necessary.
Great cards xx

Alice (scrAPpamondo) said...

So sorry for the loss of your friend! I don't think she is the Shaz I know, Shaz in Oz, as she posted today on her Bible blog.
I'm glad to know that you are feeling much better, but please take care.
You used so well those free papers, lovely cards! The last one design with the hole and the acetate with snowflakes is really gorgeous and fun.

Love the vintage styles of your wonderful and fun Christmas cards. No wonder you are not looking forward to your next vaccinations x.

Carol S. said...

So sorry to hear of you losing a close friend Mrs A.
Love the cards and the designs are all gorgeous.
We had our first Vaccine on Sunday morning. Had a sore arm and not useable on Monday and also felt odd and spent all day sitting on the sofa doing nothing.
Today I was much better so nearly back to normal.
Hope you feel better soon.
Love and hugs,
Carol S.xxxx
