Well, like everyone else, I've been busy with Christmas preparations lately, and blogging has taken a back seat. Next week, I'll be travelling to my daughter's, to spend Christmas with her, my son, and the four grand-boys, so blogging will be sparse till the New Year.
However, this week's Created by Hand challenge is quilting. I did this easel card with some old scrap papers, and used a Quietfire Design sentiment stamp

Although it's not for the challenge, here's another card I did with a Quietfire Design stamp. It's fun pairing my favourite Christmas beading pattern with my favourite Christmas Quietfire Design stamp! Isn't that calligraphy gorgeous!? This is the first year I've managed to get all my Christmas cards completed on time since I retired! What FUN!

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Love the beading.. You use the beading in such beautiful ways on your cards. Will miss seeing your cards on the blog but glad you are visiting with family.
