1st September - so 1st Christmas cards

I have started on the mammoth Christmas card make. My Grandaughter was with me this morning as I was finishing off one of the cards (the old gentleman in the bed) and I had just attached the bow and held it up for her to look at.

Her lovely comment was. "Yes Grandma - so simple but so elegant".  She is 10!!

Here is my so simple yet elegant card.

 She didn't see the next one so I was spared any comments.

Can you spot a theme here?  The dies used for the mats are by Marianne.  The bow is by Sue Wilson and the Merry Christmas is a new Robert Addams die.  The CD used is of course - La Pashe.


  1. Well Carol i would say both very elegant indeed, that's a very useful die you have used, really like that one. Of course i have not started mine yet but should really make a start soon. xx

  2. Well Carol, is amazing how grand daughters always give great comments, even if the card/other makes. Two gorgeous Christmas cards, I have not started yet, will do so after my holiday I fly off Thursday.

  3. Both are elegant cards Carol, I love the bow on the top card and the lovely die you've used as a base.
