Evening everyone....I hope you are all well. Today was my last day at work and I have 5 lovely days off over Christmas....and I'm going to enjoy every minute.

Tonight I would like to share the last of the Christmas cards that I made this year. These were very quick and easy to make.....

These images are pre~coloured die cuts from LOTV. I bought them ages ago and found them while tidying up in the craft room. I just added backing papers from my scraps stash, pearls and lots of Stickles. The sentiments were also from LOTV.

Thank you for stopping by.

Morning everyone.....I hope you are all well.

Today I have a card to share. I made this Christmas card to give to my daughter Brogan....I used to shy away from these white cards but now I think they have rather grown on me as I seem to make them more often.

The image is by Mo Manning from Penny Black....Little Elf  Finn. I love these little elves, they look so cheeky.

I have coloured with Promarkers....a while since I've picked these up so I think I'm a little out of practise but never mind I hope to have more free time in the New Year....HaHaHa!!!.

I have embossed the background and used various punches and corner rounders and the sentiment is from LOTV....and of course I've used lots and lots of Stickles for that added bit of Christmassy bling.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:~

Creative Inspirations Challenge ~ # 142 ~ Whitewash
Cupcake Inspirations Challenge ~ # 141 ~ Photo Inspiration
Pile It On Challenge # 49 ~ Bling It Up

Thank you for stopping by.

Morning everyone....I hope you are all well. 

Well at last I have now finished my round of Christmas dinners, lunches and drinks with friends, work colleagues and the various groups I belong to....I absolutely love it but boy does it make you tired. Four more days at work and then I have five lovely days off for Christmas......I just love Christmas......

Today I would like to share the last of the Wedding cards I was asked to make and a 25th Wedding Anniversary card.....

This was the third card I had made for the same wedding and I tried to make them all different.....I made a box for this one as the roses were too big to pop in an envelope.

This is the card I made for the 25th Wedding Anniversary....the roses look yellow in this photograph but they are cream.....just rubbish photos.

I love winter but the light is rubbish for taking pictures of cards.....or maybe its down to my rotten photography.......

Thank you for stopping by.

Evening everyone.....I hope you are all well out there in blogland.

Today I have some ATC's to show.....The theme for this month's swap over at ALI's  ATC  SWAP~STOP! was Winter/Christmas. I had quite a few decoupage Christmas images tucked away that I hadn't used and decided that they were perfect for this month swap.

I mounted the finished decoupage images on to some scraps of gold Mirri card and the only other thing I added was lots and lots of Stickles.

Sorry about the poor picture quality but still hoping that Santa will bring me that lovely photographic light box........

Thank you for stopping by.

Good afternoon everyone....its very cold and wet here today. I'm still not feeling great but better than yesterday.....Thank you so much for all your kind words, thoughts and well wishes....your all wonderful and certainly reading your comments makes me feel better.

Today I have another card to share, this is one of the three I was asked to make for a winter wedding.

I took my inspiration for this card from a scrapbook page that I did with the very talented Polly who teaches at my scrapbook classes at one of the local craft shops.

This was the original page that Polly taught.....

I haven't added a photograph yet as I'm trying to get hold of one photo in particular, when I have the photo I would like to then put this scrapbook page in a box frame and give it as a gift.

Thank you for the inspiration Polly.

Thank you for stopping by.

Good afternoon everyone....I hope you are all well.....

I am sorry that I haven't posted anything in a while or commented on everyones'  blogs as regularly as I should  but I haven't been feeling too well....thankfully things are now improving so I am making an early resolution to do better next year.

Today I have a card to share.....

I'm sorry about the terrible photo....Here's hoping Santa brings me a lovely photographic light box for Christmas....hint...hint.

The image is pre~coloured and I think I bought it on a sheet of six from the Hobby House.....I was way behind with Christmas cards and I needed half a dozen very quick images and these fitted the bill perfectly. I must start making my Christmas cards much earlier next year.

I added lots of Stickles to the fur and for the snow and just added a LOTV sentiment along with some gold card and some DP's from my scraps box.

Thank you for stopping by.

Good afternoon everyone....I hope you are all well and keeping warm.

Its bitter cold and wet here today but on a positive note I have finished the house~work and all the shopping is done. 

I am sorry for my lack of crafting and commenting lately but every year at this time I take it upon myself to do all the extra jobs that I need to ~ cleaning out cupboards and drawers, washing inside windows, cleaning all the ornaments and polishing mirrors etc etc etc....I have been seen to hoover the walls....yes I'm quite mad and I have no idea why I do this just before Christmas but I do.....then I'm happy to put the tree up.....Well maybe next weekend anyway......

I do have a card to share today and I'm sorry to say its not a Christmas card although I'm so behind with them now I may have to resort to plan B.....shock horror....bought ones....I know next year I must do better!!!!!

This card was for no particular reason other than I found these die cut decoupage sheets in my craft room and thought I would have a play. The papers are from my scraps box and I have simply used some punches, a border punch and some Nesties....well at least I have a birthday card ready for next year.

Thank you for stopping by.
