Kraft Hearts card etc

Good afternoon friends, I hope you are all
 almost ready for the big day now ! It's so
 warm here today 15c, can't believe it's
I seem to have most of my Christmas
 preparations out of the way now thank 
heavens so thought I would post a 
few cards ;)

The first one is my usual 'Less is More'
card where the theme is........
  1.                   1.  simple and unsophisticated.
                  "homespun philosophy"


    1.        2.
      (of cloth or yarn) made or spun at home.
    "This may conjure up many differing images in one's
     mind, but think simple, primitive, lots of white space,
     gingham, knitting, sewing, folk art... you get the idea!"

 This is what I came up with, Kraft card,
 some hessian, a couple of hearts which I
'rippled' with my ribbler thingamajig and 
some red cord. I added a pearl which I 
coloured red, job done ;)

The second card was one I made for
our gorgeous granddaughter Lana.I
can't believe she is 2 already (a
 few days ago)! Below is a photograph
I took of her recently and a digi page
I made.

The last card is another Xmas one,
similar to ones I have made recently.

Enjoy your weekend whatever you have
 planned. We just have to put the outside
Xmas lights up yet. Just white ones (like
 icicles hanging from the roof).

Maybe a couple of small trees either side
 of the front door  too with some coloured
 lights on if I manage to get more lights 
bought ;)

Hearts, Kraft, Hessian, CAS,LIM
The card and the hearts ARE all the same colour believe it or not grrr !
