You've seen the blue set, now here is the red set

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs.
I opened the curtains this morning and what did I see? Yes, rain, rain and more rain :o(
Oh well, there's nothing we can do about it so we may as well make the best of it!

I am off to Long Eaton this morning to take Stephen for his speech therapy.
I took him for his neuro therapy on Tuesday and he is doing so well that they asked him to make his own way there next week to see if he can plan a journey okay.  He goes out every day and uses his bus pass a lot, but he just gets on the bus to anywhere without planning, so they are really testing him now. No doubt I will be on tenterhooks while he is gone but I am sure that he will be alright (says she biting on her knuckles, LOL)

Anyhow, time to get onto my cards for today. I said when I posted the blue set that I was thinking of making a red set too, and here they are, or at least some of them!

All base cards are white hammered from the Papermill shop years ago, folded and cut to 6x6, then apertures cut with Spellbinder's Nesties.
Papers are from stash, also from years ago. They are HOTP except for the spotty one, which is Basic Grey.
Dies used are Memory Box,  flower punches are Woodware, and poinsettia is an SVG file from Penny Duncan and cut on the Cricut.
Various stamps used with Memento inkpad.
I hope you like them :o)

well the sun is out today Jackie - glad Stephen is making good progress - they must think he can plan a journey and get to LE otherwise they wouldn't have asked him to try - so exellent progress I would say - think I like your red set of cards to the blue although both are gorgeous - love the frosty flourish think it must be one by Memory Box? best wishes Lesley x

What a gorgeous selection of Christmas cards Jackie - they all look so elegant! I have only made a couple of Christmas cards and I should get on with them (just not feeling like it!). I hope Stephen went OK with his bus journey and I can understand how stressful it would be for you waiting at home.
