Icy Easel!!!

The last of my Christmas Easel cards for this year.
I've used my favourite Basic Grey papers for this one. The bottom panel is blank at the moment as I am going to send this one to DD and it will have her name on it.

Today I started thinking about the fact that I will probably have two weeks off at Christmas and I really want to get back into stamping while I am off. I have made way too many cards with no stamping lately. So my big job for today was to locate every last ink pad in my pit of a room, label them all and display them on a bookcase where they are easier to get to. I have filled the bookcase but still have four drawers of small ink pads. Now I need to get all my embossing powders to hand and I shall be well set for a mega stamping binge.
It's starting to look unnaturally tidy up there but once I have finished with Christmas cards I shall soon mess it up!!!

Had a lovely treat tonight........DD cooked tea........and we didn't have to call the fire!!! She cooked sausages with scrambled egg, baked beans and toast and it really hit the spot on such a cold night. Best be good tomorrow night and have something healthy although I'm drawing the line at's too cold.

Looking forward to the weekend when we put up the Christmas tree.
DD has found me a couple of new books with a Christmas theme to get me in the mood and once I have read those I shall be getting out my Rosamund Pilcher book Winter Solstice which I read every year........but not until it gets cold enough to snuggle under my fleecy blanket while I read it. After that I will read The Christmas Mouse by Miss Read. My copy is so well read that it is falling to pieces. Must get a new copy if I can find one.

Right that's me done for the night. Work tomorrow so I must have an earlier night.
Thanks for your visit.


  1. This is lovely Sheila and it's set me off I think. I spent last night cutting out a load of Christmas papers I bought 2 years ago as I've decided with being so behind I'll have to get some 'licky sticky' cards done. This easel design will be perfect.

    Have to admit I'm dying to see some of your fabulous inky things which are my favourite although your none-stamped cards are a cut above the rest as they're always so elegant.

    Have a good day.
