Merry Christmas Blogging Friends!!!

 Well I am well and truly fed up with making Christmas cards but I wanted to make another card for this months Hero Arts Challenge.  This card has lots of shiny bits on it,  The elegant weed stamp has been stamped with  Dusty Concord and then clear embossed, I have also added some gems coloured with a copic marker.  The butterfly is a digital image that I have coloured and coated with Distress Crackle Paint.
 Here is a close up I also stamped the Old Letter Writing stamp with the same Dusty Concord and then distressed the whole of the card.
 I just wanted to show you this beauty as well, it arrived in the post yesterday all the way from lovely Sanne in Denmark , isn't it cute.  Thank you Sanne!!

This beautiful card also arrived all the way from  Stephanie in Canada,  one of our Flickr Hero Arts group members Anita organised a card chain for holiday cards, we all had to make a card for the person below us in the list and hopefully would all receive a card from the person above us. I was thrilled with this card , so pretty in pink!!

This is the card I made and sent to Celine also in Canada, lots of Hero Arts stamps used here!!

This will probably be my last post for about a week as we have lots planned!  My DD is coming home today for Christmas and then next week we are moving her back from her flat in Bristol.  She is going to be living back home for about 7 months , she has a job as a teaching assistant in a school near here for two terms,  after that she is hopefully going back to University to train to be a teacher.

Sorry for the long post but I want to take this opportunity to wish all my blogging friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, thank you all so much for all your lovely comments over the past year, I really appreciate them all.
