Chrissy Cards #2

Hi all the beautiful blog friends out there, thank you all so much for your e mails and inquiries as to how I am going. The good news is that I am functioning at about 95% and the energy levels are getting better every day. I have also received word that I am going to get my BRAND SPANKING NEW Insulin Pump on the 17th December. It'll be my Chrissy pressie to myself and hopefully with the new functions that it has (once I learn to 'drive' the thing) I will be at 100% and watch out world!! the cards......

On my first Chrissy card post here, I had this layout complements of Nikki Stalker here. I decided that it was so easy to do, I changed it up a little and went monochrome...or technically there are 2 colours used, but I LOVE how it changes the look of the card!!

The next card is a direct CASE from the mega talented Christie Wallace here. It uses Pear Pizzaz and poppy Parade...a very festive colour combination indeed. I so not have the set that she used for her sentiment, so I improvised.


This last card is form the very talented Wendy Todd here. I made them in both Cherry Cobbler and Real Red. I however thought the background was a bit bare, so I used the Weathered BGS in both old Olive and Versamark (once again to satisfy my paranoia of making 2 cards exactly the same...LOL!!)


There are more Christmas cards to come. I hope you can hang in there with me as the fun continues.
