I hope you all had a good time with family and friends over the holidays - we don't do the chrissy thing in our house and when I asked my DH what we should have for our main meal on Dec 25th he said "lamb curry " and delicious it was.
I Love ProMarkers - challenge - 325 Anything goes - I used AquaMarkers and it has to be said there was a lot of water involved to get the colour just right.

I looked through all my Christmas stamps and then looked through a whole lot more digi images and nothing inspired me - so back to very basic card making with a couple of frames and a punched tree.I love the paper from the top card ,almost vintage. I was busy re-sealing the deck out back yesterday and I was hoping to do a second coat today but it's raining - such a welcome sight - so
I'm off to the craft table - I have a funny feeling there will be more cards just like these - inspiration is in short supply.

About 8 years ago I made my visit to New Zealand ( a place I love to go ) . Driving around we came across a shop which was really a haven for quilters and had some lovely fabric . In a little corner were a few bits of crafts stuff and I picked up sheet ( 6 on a sheet) of these 3D handbags. Over the years I have only used 2 so thought it was time to dust them and get them on a card.
I love this top card the colours really work for me but the bottom one does nothing for me at all and I struggled to find the right paper.

Can I say a BIG thank you to my 81 followers who have not yet deleted me from their list. This last year has been a strange one - I have lost a lot of my bloggy mates due to divorce -moving house- and even death -along with my own little problems I have struggled to find any interest in crafting , in fact any interest in anything at all - I'm not sure if and when normal service will be resumed but I will try .
As you can see all 3 cards use a brown cardstock with blue and white.

Creative Craft Cottage - challenge 72 - Anything Goes - I had the idea for this card two weeks ago when the challenge was spots an stripes but just never got the time to make it - lucky it fits the theme this time around.
