December is a month for sharing Christmas wishes and blessings
My December was a very special and dedicated period when I could focus on loved ones, friends and family. It was such a delight to hand craft all my Christmas cards this year and actually enjoy the thrill of popping each one in the post too. It was all the more special because I had such a beautiful selection of products to design and craft with. So, when did December vanish!!! It was a beautiful month filled with so many Christmas wishes and blessings from both near and from far across the globe. Thank you to each one of you for making this such an awesome crafting year. I have loved the crafting times spent with so many of you at either our monthly classes, “On Stage Loca”l this year, the Royal Stampers Team training (when I managed to join the team), our pub evenings, craft fairs or sharing our crafting online. Also, for the first time ever in 2017, sharing our creativity at our wonderful Christmas Retreat this year….and having been such a success will now to be repeated in 2018!
How wonderful it has been this year, receiving so many beautiful handmade Christmas cards from so many of you. It just never ceases to amaze me what incredible talent emerges from the amazing groups of crafters and I am so grateful for all that Stampin’Up! has enabled me to become a part of. I just had to share a couple of my cards received here with you. They are all so beautiful and each one uniquely telling a story. I hope you have all enjoyed making them as much as I have enjoyed receiving them….. thank you. For those that I have not been able to publish due to space limitation, please know that each card received is very special and I will treasure them always. Just to know that you have taken the time to make the card especially for me and be so generous to share a part of yourself with me, is very precious and will stay with me always.
So on that emotional note, all that’s left for me to say to wave 2017 “good-bye” is “a HUGE thank you” for being here and allowing me the privilege of crafting with you and thereby also helping me take my crafting that “next step” this year.
