Merry Xmas!

We are having a wonderful time!

I made this card on Wednesday for a very good friend of ours. I love going to see them at this time of year, They have such great decorations! Mylee love it and so do we LOL :-)
The ribbon is from a...festive bottle of baileys, I knew I will be using it on my cards as soon as I spotted it when my DH brought it home! :-)

I wanted to wish everyone a Briliant. Happy New year, Hopping you are all having a magical time! Thank you for all of your beautiful comments X

A Thank You and A Private Swap!

About two weeks ego, I visited one of my SBS#26 blogs, and saw a Hanukkah card she said she had made for a friend...
About a week later I got an envelope in the post, and guess what? That card was for us!
I was very moved and I would like to share it with everyone :-)
Thank you so much Vickie! I love it! here it is here

And again, two weeks ego in an israeli Forum I saw the beautiful creations by another online friend; an Israelie that lives in Canada with her DH. Because I found out that both of our Families are celebrating both holidays (Thats what happens in mixed marriges LOL), I asked her if she would like to have a festive swap between us.
We descided on a tree decoration + something else plus a card of course!

I got mine a few days ego and, trust me when I say this, the pictures are great! But its so much prettyer in reall life! here
Thank you so much Mira! Love them all!

I am sorry I am not uploading them myself, but both blogs are great and you should see for yourself! (For the Hebrew one, there is always google translate! LOL)

Here is what I sent Mira, My Candeian/Israeli Friend:

A small wreath for the Xmas tree

A small desk calender:

I made two of this cards, but only took one picture LOL so here it is again :-)

And this is Me and My wee Princess lighting Hanukkah lights on the First day of Hanukkah, As you can see she is not looking at the lights...LOL

Its Nearly Xmas!

And this year we are celebrating both Hanukkah and Xmas! We are at the third candle of Hanukkah today, and The princess received her third gift as well :-) I went upstairs to make sure I got it right and got her eight for Hanukkah and some more for Xmas. I can stop panicking now, we have enough! LOL

I normally buy Xmas cards, and only make them for really special people, I made this one for a special couple that have been really great friends to us for the last nine years.
I really enjoyed making it and will probably make another one for another friend of mine :-)

The first card is a Hanukkah card I made last week, I always struggle with them, In my mind the colour should always be in the Red/yellow/Orange range. I don`t tend to use this colours much on cards (if ever LOL). But I am pretty pleased with the outcome.

Thanks for stopping by! X
