Nice and Simple....

Hi, we certainly know winter is coming brrrr.  Still haven't started Christmas shopping, am way behind this year.  But am on top of the Christmas cards, mainly because they are all nice and simple, not that I make many.  Below is a selection of the simple cards......

Stamps by Paper Artsy - Gold Glitter
Stamps by Inkadinkado and Papermania - Silver Glitter

Stamps by Inkadinkado - Silver Glitter

Time again for another Rogue Redhead Challenge, this time Happy Birthday or Happy Unbirthday Card, below is mine.

Stamps by Rogue Redhead, background used a large spot mask, inked with various DewDrop ink pads and Silver Glitter, an attempt at Vintage Retro
After last weeks debacle at the hospital with the surgeon not turning up for my hubby's 'op, he has another appointment on Wednesday for the same 'op, fingers crossed he turns up this time........

Have at last put some new artwork on HERE if you would like to see.

Wishing you a very happy week and thank you for dropping in to see me, hugs Annette x

Nettie...your cards are so lovely! You call them "simple", I call them gorgeous! Your first one...the one with the birdies is so sweet. Love the different colors on the white background with the black stamping. So cute! Your other cards, black stamping on white are so elegant. Simple...maybe but very elegant! <3 Candy

Netty your Christmas cards are wonderful, the PA one doesn't look simple to me at all, and the others are so striking.

Your Rogue card is great, too--I really like what you did with the background.

Now to business--SERIOUSLY, the surgeon didn't show up??? Things will surely go smoothly this next time, yes?
