So why am I late yet again you ask ? Well You'll like my excuse this time it's a cracker and honestly I do not make these things up. Ok so yes we were having a lie in (watching Sunday Politics I hasten to add on the TV,) all riveting stuff when we got a phone call from the Window Cleaner (I kid you not) asking could he come and do the windows as he was in our vicinity doing the local Golf Course club house and could he also have a cup of coffee when he got here as the clubs cafeteria was shut!!
The Doc doesn't generally need an excuse to fire up the Tassimo coffee machine but it did mean the Window cleaner got his coffee before me!!
Finally got my coffee when a text came in to say 3 items had been substituted on my food delivery for later on today so further procrastination whilst I logged onto the PC to see what I was now getting instead.
I managed 5 cards from rooting through my stash, 3 using Ice Skates and 2 using Winter Sports so hope you like my choice Gwen. Though I made all these last night I needed the light coming in the lounge windows (now sparkly clean) this morning to get decent pictures of them.
Uses a Sassy Cheryl's pre coloured digi image called 'Smooth Move' from Paper Creator. The card blank was an old one found in my box and has the oval already cut from it so I just printed off the image and glued behind and then added a further panel inside to neaten. The flower is a Tonic embellishment. The strips of glitter are cut from cardstock and the glitter stickers from my stash.
Uses a Sassy Cheryl's pre coloured digi image called 'Figure Eight Style'. Th spotty digi paper is from Nitwits 'Believe Too' collection called Dots Red. The best wishes is a strip of Washi Tape and I found the green holly stickers in my stash.
Uses a freebie paper from several years ago from PaperCraft Inspirations called 'New York, New York, Winter Wonderland 'collection. The greeting was a gold sticker in my stash that I layered up on a scrap of red and white and given more height with strips of white card stock in lieu of 3D pads.
Uses a pre coloured digi image from The Paper Shelter called 'Sliding Bear' which i thought fitted the bill of Winter Sports. Gold edging and gold sticker sentiments from my stash. Snow flake Paper by LOTV.
Uses a freebie cardboard topper from years and years gone by. It came in a large packet of different animals and embellishments and I believe the packet had over 50 in it which I am still endeavouring to use up. Again the bear skiing fitted the winter sports theme. The Design paper was a magazine freebie and I just layered the bear up in the same way as I did the sentiment on card No3. Silver stars and silver sentiment from my stash.
Wonderful cards, love all the toppers, glad you enjoyed the challenge xx
5 fabulous cards Valery-Anne…you really have been busy…that first card really made me laugh…love it…
An eventful start to the day…take care xxx
Fabulous selection of cards and must admit that was a wowser of an excuse lol
Such pretty cards.
Brilliant cards on the skating theme - wouldn't like to choose a fave, love them all. Hope your online shopping substitutions weren't too bizarre. I sometimes wonder at the mindset of the people who do the shopping on our behalf although recently more often than not they are just not substituting - merely saying 'item not available'.
Wow - what brilliant makes Valery - really good hunting! Hugs rachel x
Wonderful makes with the skating theme.
My goodness Valery you were certainly on a roll, all of your cards are fabulous, with super fun toppers and designs. all perfect for the challenge.
I sat glued to the TV for for the two days, this election was so important to us here in Scotland. Great result for those of us who long for independence, so it's going to be an interesting parliamentary session. Hope your weekend is going well, Kate x
A great selection, you have been very busy

Great card love how you designed and created them. x
LOL! I’m so glad that I came back to take another look at your fun Christmas cards, ValeryAnne. Your descriptive story gave me a delightful chuckle, at the audacity that a worker would expect you to have their coffee ready. LOL! Anyway, thanks for the cute play-by-play events of the day! Hugs, de
You have been super busy! I love all of these cards. Card #1 is what I would look like if I tried to ice skate now. I broke both of my ankles a couple years ago and I can no longer skate!
These cards are the cutest, Valery! I love the skating ones and he's having so much fun on the sled. Even skiing looks like fun. So funny you had to make the window washer coffee. I need a window washer right now.
