The Lights are on!

These are the cards I made for the family this year.  I have used the easel card theme with a light battery pack. The hardest part is wrapping the wire of tiny lights around the window cut out  so as not to show the wire when the card is switched on. 

This is our daughter's card.

This was the only good photo I managed to take of a close up of one of the cards lit up. 

Wishing you all 
Happy and safe Christmas.

Christmas Birthdays.

Both of our Grandsons' have Birthdays in December . One at the beginning and one at the end. They are both growing up so fast and I really struggled this year to come up with a card idea for them.  Grandson number two liked his so hopefully grandson number one will like his too. 

Grandson number two is the younger but his birthday comes first.  I have this number set  by  Sizzix with comes with the 'today' as part of the set so created the card above.

I had to make Grandson number ones' card slightly longer to accommodate the extra year. 

Just getting over a really bad cystitis attack and as I don't want a repeat attack over christmas have  spent a fortnight trying to get a prescription made up on a just in case basis. Fingers crossed I  won't need to use it but  a bad attack is usually followed quickly with another one and then I can go months without a problem. They come completely out of the blue so best to be ready me thinks. 

Hope everyone is just about ready for Christmas. I managed to get my cards all posted out in between the postal strikes and presents delivered by the couriers. 

Have a lovely time  and take care.
