Leftover Patchwork card

 Just popping in to let everyone know I haven't forgotten my blog. I just closed the craftroom a bit earlier than normal because it takes me longer to do things round the house now with my dodgy joints and I wanted the house clean and tidy for Christmas.

Today I am putting my craftroom back in order since it was the dumping ground and for Hubbys beer fridge, don't worry there was a couple of bottles of the sparkling stuff that I love inside too.  I just hope I can find all the safe places I put things in.

So I leave you with one of the few Christmas ones that was left in my drafts that I forgot using scraps of pretty Stampin up paper. A Crafters Expression sentiment cut into some pearl silver card that looks better in real life than it does in a photo. I'm amazed the my very old Martha Stewart Holly Punch is still punching out OK and I used some pink gems for berries supposedly to match the pink ones of the papers.

Crafty plans for 2022 is to make Birthday cards for family, try to continue making Christmas Cards all year round so I don't have a mad panic in November but I say that every year. Also to get out my Scrapbooking Stuff I haven't done hardly any for two years. I need to have another go at making crochet clothes I'm collecting loads of finished blankets and have no idea what to do with them.
