Christmas Gift Folder

This weeks Polkadoodles challenge is to do some fancy or intersting folding, So I have decided to do a gift folder that contains some Christmas cards. These were all made using the winter section from the new CD Sundae Of Seasons which you can buy here. What wonderful winter characters there is on the Cd too. The template for this folder was given to me from my very dear friend B x

The winner will receive a special blinkie for use on their blog and something scrummy from Polka Doodles! Runners-up will also receive Blinkies!

This is for the following challenges:-

2. Creative Inspiration Wednesday - challenge 80 - Christmas In September

3. Paperplay challenges - week 39 - Hidden Extra

4. Totally Papercrafts - challenge # 36 - The Great Outdoors

I put this in an earlier post this morning, but just put it again incase you didn't see it in my last post - thank you
I have been struggling this last couple of weeks, last week I started with a bad back and was put on 4 lots of tablets, some very strong that made me terribly drowsy, I hate that feeling and it did make it hard to blog. Then Monday I woke up with a bit of a sore throat, by the afternoon I couldn't even swallow water, I managed to get in at the doctors and he said I had severe tonsilitis, they have even bled, which I didn't know could happen. Yesterday my 4 year old Bobby started with a virus which includes a sore throat, so it's probably from me, but he's at home with me and no school, and were giving each other lots of warm cuddles.

But hopefully i'm on the mend now, but feel I have missed so much in blogland and If I have done anything on the computer over this time it has been mainly DT Work. So a big apology for not visiting you and hopefully i'll back into the swing of things shortly.

Thank you for being so understanding and for all your well wishes.

Thank you for popping by, and have a good wekend

Happy crafting

Just love your gorgeous creation Tracy and really admired it when I saw it on TV with Nikky. Fab idea.
Sorry to hear you haven't been well and hope you and poor little Bobby are soon fully recovered - it's not nice when your little ones are ill.
Sending hugs, Fliss xx

Hi Tracy,
Sorry to hear both you and Bobby are poorly and I wish you both a speedy recovery.
I've not been around either, but that's due to work, not illness or even card making!
Love your gift folder. What an amazing gift this would make. Beautiful cards inside the folder too.
Take care
Love Elaine xx
