Christmas Cards (and pressies!) from my Friends

I thought I would share with you some of the cards I have received from my friends over at CraftMad.

From Ali

From Daisy

From Kaye

From Kerry

From Mandy

From Merry

I was so very spoilt by my friends this year - I received some lovely unexpected presents!

From Kaye - 12 days of Christmas

From Mandy - I am looking forward to putting this lovely angel on top of my tree next year!

From Mandy - such a wonderful unexpected gift - I was eager to have a play and will post some pics a bit later.

Last, but by no means least, here is my Secret Santa present from someone at CraftMad.  Each year we do a SS swap and we MUST wait until Christmas Day to open our presents!  I was so impressed with the wrapping, I took a photo!   I made it until Christmas Eve and just had to open them!

My SS sent me some lovely cardstock frames, gold leaf printed sentiments and some beautiful metallic/pearl type 3D images to use for paper tole, and some lovely silk type butterflies.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo when I opened it and am currently in the process of transferring everything from my craft room into the study (where the computer is) and cannot locate these goodies to take a photo just now.  I will post a photo later, when I will also post a photo of my new craft room.

I feel so very lucky to have such considerate and generous friends - I have only just recently met Mandy in person and have worked a lot with Kaye in putting together the CraftMad Journal (most recent journal here).  I have been part of CraftMad for many years now and have thoroughly enjoyed being involved with the group.  They are such a wonderful bunch of people!
