2016 Christmas Extravaganza

Hello Everyone,

Its been a while since my last post but life sometimes throws you a few things to deal with.

My eldest son hasn't been well since the summer, he was diagnosed a few weeks ago with Hodgkins Lymphoma which was a shock as he is only 21 years old.  He has just started chemo, so we are in the full swing of hospital visits now.  We are keeping everything crossed for him.

I had only just started the prep work for my Christmas Extravaganza so my blog had to be left for a bit, hope you understand.

As usual we did three projects, this was Project one using the Holly Berry Happiness Bundle which everyone got in their gift bags.
The gatefold card is 6" x 6" so a nice big one and a matching what gift box and belly band.  These are in the christmas catalogue which come in packs of 8.

When you open up the card, the inside looks like this.

The second project used part of the Forever Evergreen Christmas Kit.
My inspiration came from a Stampin UP Magazine, that we demonstrators get.
Its a 12" x 10" Canvas ready to hang for Christmas.

The third project used the Santa's Sleigh Bundle.  A Tissue Box cover and matching card.

The instructions are on the right if you would like to play along,
Thanks for looking,

Jenny, so sorry about your son and I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. I kept checking your blog every few days as I knew you would have a good reason for staying away. Your family always comes first and I pray everything will be okay.
