Three at once again.

I made these last Sunday when we had a crafting day at Jackie's. (If you visit her blog, you'll see how excited she was) Ha Ha.
Had a brilliant day with some, sadly not all of my dear friends. (Some live too far away to meet up with regularly, which is a shame).
We were dined and dined, not wined, 'coz we were driving. LOL The food was scrummy, the company 1st class and the ritual trip to the craft shop expensive! Don't care, it was well worth it. Ha Ha.

Here we are then. My quick and easy three cards.




 They are all pretty self-explanatory except the last one. I made the scene with elements from a stamp set called 'Winter trees' from Stampendous.
I got the idea for the scene from watching a video made by the uber talented Sandy Hulsart.
It's the first one of her videos in the left hand column of her blog.
(Alternatively, you can see it on You Tube, HERE).
Mine is nowhere near as good as hers, but I was trying to remember as I was at Jackie's and couldn't access Sandy's blog. Not too bad for a guess, I reckon.

I have to fly as I am taking Mum Christmas shopping today. As she's 91 almost, that could take a while.
Thanks for your visit. As always ,it's lovely to see you and I'll return the favour just as soon as I get 5 mins to myself. Have a great day!

They are all very pretty! I love the scene with the deer. It is colored so beautifully and the touches of glitter are perfect. It is a very peaceful card! Lucky you to have a healthy Mom at the age of 91! Have fun shopping!!

Oh, Viv, these are very classy. I love the nice clean lines. That Merry Christmas saying on the blue cards is a gorgeous font, who makes that? These are simply beautiful. Have a lovely day.

Love the top one and the scene you created on the last one is wonderful. So nice to hear your mom is still out and about and active at 91 :D Trusting you got all the shopping done that she needed.

Thank you, Viv. I am so happy I inspired you to try a scene on your own. And such a beauty it is. I have that stamp set and may just have to CASE your card. Thanks for the inspiration.
