Oh dear – another few months gone & I never got around to making a single post on here – oops. 😦 No real excuse this year either (unlike last!) – just haven’t had anything worthwhile putting up.
And even now – all I have to offer are some of this year’s cards & a couple of my fav songs for the season, but hope you won’t mind that.
Ok – cards first.
Only a small selection of the 400 odd I managed to produce this year – still a good 100 short but that was thanks to a rather important wedding (my wonderful brother’s) I had to do the cards for back in Aug & Sept – well worth the loss 🙂 Should you take a fancy to any of the above or would like any others created for you, feel free to check out my website for more – Gentle Touch Cards
And now for a couple of this year’s fav songs:
Instrumental but beautiful by Casting Crowns
Another take on the same song by Chris Tomlin
That’s it folks. Unlikely I’ll be on here again now before Christmas so all that remains me to do is to wish all my faithful followers a Peaceful & enjoyable Christmas celebration always remembering Jesus is the REAL reason for the season (as cliched as it sounds!) 🙂
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.”

Christianity, Christmas, Christmas music
Caleb Collins, Chris Tomlin, Christian, Christmas music, Christmas songs, Phil WIckham
Apologies again at my lack of posts – still around, just ridiculously busy & distracted with the continuing Christmas Card season (I’ll be making them through to Feb no doubt). With all the hosp admissions I got way behind so have been spending every spare minute catching up to provide family/friends with their orders.
Anyway – thought since I don’t have time or ability to write a post just now (hand arthritis making typing painful) I’d just share some of this season’s best Christmas songs IMHO (prob actually last year’s songs but new ones to me!).
First off is Chris Tomlin’s Joy to the world.
Next: Phil Wickham: O Come, O come Emmanuel
Next: Richard Marx and his rendition of O Holy Night
Finally a superb one from Caleb Collins: Another equally excellent version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel – sadly this appears to be the only video providing the full song, but if you head to his website you can hear it on there at a better quality.
Caleb Collins has some other equally wonderful songs on his Christmas Album – check it out on his site http://www.calebcollins.com/music.html
Trust you all have a wonderful, peaceful & blessed Christmas & New Year. Hopefully next year will see me having a better time healthwise & able to write a bit more. Catch you all then!
