MAXIE'S CHRISTMAS CARD


In my profile I mentioned we had a fur-baby Max. Max is a rescue dog, he was 2 years old when we adopted him, he’s now 5. Either Max doesn’t see himself as a dog or he was a human in a previous life, which ever, he is master of the house and he allows us to live here.






Like most people, Max has his own Facebook Page and he is proud to say he has more Facebook friends than his Dad.

He wants some Christmas cards to send so I got the job of coming up with something.
Many people won’t agree with me using retired or non Stampin’ up! products but most of the things I make are for personal use and there are so many retired sets I love and will continue to use. The great thing about Stampin’ up! is that when they retire a product there is always something else that can be substituted in a design.

71 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS

This is a very monumental day, posting my first card. I have to warn you it will look crooked, that is because it is. My eyesight isn't the greatest, actually I have had 2 corneal transplants in my right eye due to a condition called Fuch Dystrophy, I have the same problem in my left one but thankfully it’s hanging in there. I have always been very critical of any work I do, so you can imagine when this all started I wasn’t a happy bunny, but someone told me that I shouldn’t worry as ‘It may not be perfect but a blind man would love to see it’, can’t disagree with that, can you? so I’m very grateful that I can see to do my various crafts and just have to accept things may be a bit crooked.

Having lots of Christmas cards to do, I thought I would start with this one, my two favourite colours, Whisper White and Night of Navy and one of my favourite stamp sets, Night in Bethlehem. This was cased from Lynn Starzi, thank you to Lynn.
