Blog filler: Christmas Cards to share

Hello lovely people... it has been a warm day in Cape Town today... Summer is definitely here and I'd happily move up North where there is colder weather, than be here.  I know I shouldn't be ungrateful when a lot of my bloggy friends are freezing cold, but I really suffer in this heat!! And to think that I was once a "beach babe" in my younger days... Oh my hat... I would sit and bake for hours in the sun - thankfully my skin does not bear any scars because of this!  But now that I am in my 50's, I can't take the heat that we have and our Summer has only just started...oooh boy!
 
To cool me down I thought I'd make 2 Christmas cards this morning. These Magnolia images are newbies and have been inked, coloured and lying on my desk for absolute ages.  I decided that enough was enough and on top of a card these two cuties would go, today!  I hope you like them.


And here are the 2 close up pics...

 

I have been busy behind the scenes making cards on order, but just haven't got around to taking any pics of them, as they have usually been rush jobs i.e. "Please can you make me a card, but I need it tomorrow!"...lol 
 
Real life (RL) is also just hectic right now.  Such a lot going on that I will share with you later, but for now I can share that we will soon be getting a new addition to our family...an adorable little kitty!  We can't wait to collect it in 2 weeks time.  I say "it" because we'll need to take it to the Vet as soon as we collect it to determine what gender it is.  We're used to being doggy owners and have never owned a cat before, so it's going to be a whole new experience for us.  Once he/she is here, we'll be taking loads of pics to share with you all.
 
Keep warm or cool, whichever part of the hemisphere you're from.  Thanks for popping by to read my blog filler for the day!   And a huge thanks to my friends who email me to fill me in on what's going on in their lives.  Sending loads of prayers for my dear blogfriends Colleen and Sandra, who are dealing with their own health issues right now. Love ya both, you're in my prayers !

That's it from me, hugs

Beautiful cards Sharon! I am sitting by a fire as I type this because it has been very cold here in Wyoming. I agree though I'd rather be in fall than summer, the heat is to much. I hope you can find a way to stay cool and I will try and stay warm, lol. Have a great week :))

Good Morning Sharon

You must be feeling a bit better this morning as the weather is not so hot today here in Cape Town, enjoy.

What lovely new stamps you got, they are just so adorable. I love both the cards, your colouring is just so pretty.

Enjoy your little kitten when he/she arrives, I would love to see the pictures.

Have an awesome day.

Lots of hugs,
Marika

Beide kaartjes zien er prachtig uit Sharon, je zult ze maar in je brievenbus vinden. Het is hier een stuk frisser.

Beautiful cards! I love your coloring and choice of papers! Congratulations on your adoption of "kitty". I adore my 4-legged "kids" and enjoy them every day. Thanks for the nice comment on my LaceyLassy blog since it also gives me an opportunity to visit yours and sign up as a Follower. :) Hugs, Gail
