Happy Birthday Joy!

My best friend Joy celebrated her 70th birthday during the week - but celebrations were put on hold as she came down with a bad cold - we waited until she was feeling a little better before catching up :)

You may have noticed from my photography blog that we go out a lot together with our cameras - Adelaide & Monarto Zoos are frequent destinations, as Joy loves the big cats!

Unfortunately, I don't have any lions or tiger stamps, so Penny Black Hedgehogs will have to do :)

2016 .... what a year you have been!

I am so glad to see the end of you!

I have never needed so many sympathy cards as I have done this year :(

Another friend has lost a father ...... so sad right on top of Christmas, although not surprising as he had been sick for a while.

Christmas Giftcard/Money Holders

Once again this year, my handmade Christmas cards were non-existent due to me running out of time - I don't know what I did after October when I told myself to start making Christmas cards, but somehow, the time just escaped me!

What I did do though, was to make some Christmas Giftcard/Money Holders (as I also ran out of steam doing the Christmas present shopping)

I used the same tutorial that I used for the cards in my blogpost HERE - but this time, I adjusted some of the measurements to suit what paper I had and here they are - I am quite pleased with how they turned out!
