Merry Christmas

Just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.

We are so snowed in!  Has been blowing and snowing all day
today and started yesterday afternoon.  Can't even
see across the street.  AND, very cold.  So we will wait
it out until it is safe to travel the mile to our daughters
house to celebrate Christmas. 

A driving ban has been in effect since yesterday
and since being able to see where you are going
is essential, don't know when it will be lifted.

We are grateful that we didn't have to go
without power! Many have lost power for
three days now.

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Many thanks to our generous Sponsors for their continued support to our HM blog in 2022   

 The design team has come up with some great inspiration for you, so scurry on over  and check it out then make a card or project to share on the challenge blog to inspire us.  We love visiting you to see what you come up with.

 This Challenge closes at 6am (EST) on Sunday
