Snowflake Border. . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope that you are all well.

Welcome to Jayne, who has kindly pressed "follow". Hope that knee is feeling less painful. 

Sadly, my best chum's Dad has passed away. Its my dear friend Nesta, who I have mentioned in dispatches before, so its been a very sad time. I will try and keep up with blogging etc but if my shoulder is required, then I shall be elsewhere.

Now, today's card is again, one of John's samples from his last shows. I promise that I will have shown those samples before its time for the next ones for his next shows lol!!!

I did have a bit of a stamp fest again but hope it doesn't look too OTT on a 6x6 card.

White and navy card
John Next Door Snowflake Circle embossing folder
John Next Door Christmas Scene stamp set
John Next Door Build a Wreath stamp set (sentiment)
Marianne Creatables LR10125 snowflake die (aperture)
Memento Dewdrop Bahama Blue, Danube Blue and Teal Zeal
Teeny blue bling

The stamp sets are still available on my website and also the Festive Silhouettes set, which I think has been in short supply elsewhere.

Another one for the Christmas card box.

Thank you for your help about the CPAP. I'm still psyching myself up for it but the air freshener lids down my vest is working to keep me off my back. I look a bit like Quasimodo (not facially Maureen before you say anything lol!!!) but better than Hannibal L.

Wendy, I have increased security patrols day and night on Wisty Watch. There are also life size photos of me wearing the CPAP mask strategically placed around the garden to frighten any potential intruders............you have been warned lol!!!

Well, that's me for now folks.

Hopefully see you soon.

  1. Morning Ang, my deepest sympathy to Nesta and family, hard at any time, but even harder at this time of year. Your card is love, the different shades of blue is a brilliant idea. And thanks for the laughs in the post this morning. Take care all. Bx

  2. Hi Ang

  3. Lovely card, Ang.
    A sad time.

  4. Morning Ang,
    Lovely card. Sad time for Nesta.

  5. Good Morning,
    Another lovely card, thanks Ang for your brilliant inspiration.
    Thanks for the mention too. That was a nice surprise! I've had to accept the fact that my bad knee won't be fixed for a while, so I will be off work. To stop me getting down in the dumps I will have to do some crafting. That will be interesting when I'm on liquid morphine. Goodness knows what random designs I will come up with, lol!
    I hope you are OK xxx

  8. Hi Mrs D, My thoughts and sympathy to your friend and her family.Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better hope it continues.I like the card and the colours are very appealing.Stay healthy and happy,Love Barbara D xx

  9. A beautiful card Ang. Just the right colour. Thank you for sharing. My thoughts and sympathy to your friend.

  10. Hi Ang, I'm so sorry to read your news on Nesta's dad so please send my condolences. That's the third one in the past week so hopefully no more for a while. Your card is so cheery it would brighten anyone's mantelpiece. Do take care of yourself out there, you wouldn't want to be mistaken for a terrorist now!! Love from Jackie xx

  11. This would become a part of my Christmas decorations, Ang! It's just gorgeous!! I'm sorry to hear about the CPAP and this new challenge you face. I have heard that they are crucial, however inelegant, especially when you have heart issues. Bless! Thank goodness we got two of the good guys as hubbards, eh? If they only knew when they were saying those vows ..., lol!

    On a serious note, I'm very sorry to hear about Nesta's dad passing away. Sending hugs to her, too! Lots of love, Darnell

  12. Hello Ang,
    Really love today’s card! I love the three colours of blue which you have used as well. Everything as ever is so incredibly neat! Love the snowflake centre too.
    So sorry to hear about your friend Nesta’s Dad. Everyone needs friends at a time like this.
    You do make me smile - no laugh, actually!
    Thank you,
    Love Myra xx

  13. Hello Ang,
    Bright, festive card today. One to lift the spirits and make mine a double!! I know you don't have a face like Quasimodo, perish the thought, I'd have said more like Joseph Merrick!!!
    Jayne, you'll probably come up with some super psychadelic cards while on the liquid morphine!!!
    I am sorry to read about Nesta's father. Any time is a bad time, but these months near to Christmas always seem worse, and I speak from experience.
    love Maureen xx

  14. Another lovely card, Ang.
    So sorry to hear about Nesta's father. I know you will be there for her - friends are so important at times like these.

  15. Hi Ang

    I send my sincere sympathy to Nesta, I'm sure you'll be a great comfort to her

  16. Another lovely card Ang, I do love blue for Christmas. My sympathy to Nesta give her a hug from me too.
    Margaret M

  17. Love this card Ang. I do like the sentiment within the die cut and the bling. Xx

  18. Hi Ang, lovely card. Love the colour combination. So sorry to hear of your friends sad loss, and I am sure you will be a great comfort to her.

    With regard to the Wisty Mission, after picturing you in all your finery, I have decided that I cannot make a daylight or evening frontal attack so have now revised plans to include a tunnel

  19. Beautiful card Ang. Blue is one of my favourite palettes for a holiday card and I love the mix of bright and dark blues together. Wonderful mix of techniques for framing, beautiful wintery creation! Sorry to hear about your friend's Dad. sending wishes :)

  20. This is so stylish and I love the touch of bling x

  21. Great card Ang I’m sorry to hear about Nesta’s dad Take care xx

  22. I love your blue card - very Christmas-sy. Is that a word? Bling and glitter are obligatory at Christmas and looks great here. Christine xx
