OK its nothing that grand, BUT we all sat down after dinner last night and made the Bowkis Christmas card!!!!. Yes even Peter sat there with a paper trimmer and some Blonde Moments Christmas papers. Peter was in charge of cutting the tree, Lilly's job was to fold the card, i stamped and Izzy, well she just did what she does best and kept the manufacturing line going... So here it is, our Christmas card for 2006. We made 37 last night so beware you could have an original piece of artwork coming your way, including smudgey finger prints.....

Stamps are from Stamps Away (look at the back as well) and papers are Blonde Moments.
I do keep to a very simple design, as you can see, just because of the sheer volume we have to send out.
Some more news. May I introduce you to my newest Angel, "The (Grumpy) Angel" named by Lilly and made by Lilly. We have asked her why she is grumpy, and we still don't know.Isn't she just adorable, even with a Mona Lisa smile. She has pride of place on our Christmas Tree.

Well it looks like you don't mind my fidgeting on Craft ClubTV. I have been asked to do a days shooting in January, after receiving lots of positive comments about the segment I did. I am so chuffed. Now I am throwing the doors open to you guys. I am going to do a couple of projects and some demo's. What would you like to see? Would it be a technique or a step by step project, IE: star book, exploding box. Let me know what you fancy seeing.

Tonight is Izzy's Christmas show. I am all armed with camera and will be leaving in plenty of time for a good seat up front!

Hugs to you all

Anna x

    Me too, I adore the grumpy angel, and have given a home to many similar over the last few years, that always fought for the pride of place on the Christmas tree, but I think we have settled with a red metal star from now on, and everyone is happy, and more interested in what's under the tree.
