Christmas Day...

Merry Christmas,

A project I made especially for today for the blog only!  I used a collection of Festive dies designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions form the last 3 collections ( some of my personal faves!)

I also used the lights from the DCWV light up kit to light the box and inset everything from the dies into a box frame ( bought cheap form the Range)



  1. What a fabulous, fabulous card or picture! So, so special. I love it.
    John, thanks for all your inspiration this year - yes I know we've still got a week to go to the end of the year. I can say it all again next week. Have a wonderful Christmas.
    Happy Christmas to all the bloggers too.

  3. Morning John, oh wow you have created a masterpiece here, brilliant, love it. I too still have some of the DWCV lights and kits, looks like I will be checking out the range if hubby will take me.

    Wishing everyone a very happy Christmas, a joyous time with friends and family, and a peaceful and healthy New Year.

    Now for the prezzies, I have a couple under the tree, then later off to our youngest sons for our Christmas meal.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

    A Merry Christmas to you and to and everyone who responds to your blog.

    1. Good morning John and crafters all,
      Merry Christmas.
      What a fantastic card using dies from past Christmas collections. Love the deer family and the different sizes of trees. This years starry night background and the cottage scene. The DVWV lights are fantastic!!! Do you know whether they will bring them out on their own.
      Everyone that has had a card made with them thinks they look brilliant.Even my son said they looked - funky!!!!
      Love and crafty Christmas hugs to all.
