Santa Cards


As promised I just wanted to show a couple of cards from the festive season and first up is a card I make for all of the 'little people' I know, I put it through their doors an evening just before xmas!

I like to keep it fairly simple after all Santa has lot's of these letters to send so he doesn't have too much time!!  The gorgeous image is by Di's Digitals, there's a link to her site on my sidebar.

Oh I love this image, he looks just as I remember him as a kid!!  Seemingly for one of my great nephews, this card arrived the night after his Letter to Santa was magically taken from their tree!!  Im told he was AMAZED and speechless!!

Here are the cards I made for my daughters, I hope you like them.  The images were a birthday present from the very lovely Claire that was a lovely surprise I still remember well today!

 James the bear is just gorgeous isnt he!

As I always do, I make the same but different!  All Mums will know exactly what I mean!

Sorry for the long post, catch you later.

Heartfelt Wishes


I'd like to start by saying a great big Thank You to my beautiful blogging friends who very kindly sent me one of their precious Christmas cards, they really really are most beautiful and they each brought a big smile to my face and they are on display up here in my craft room (where I think they just might have to stay for a good few weeks yet!).

I had a super day spent with my girls, their guys and their dogs.  It was one of the loveliest Christmases that I can think of and I hope that everyone of you has also enjoyed a wonderful time over the festive period.

I'd like to join in and wish everyone a Very Happy & Healthy New Year for I feel that if you have health then being happier is a lot easier and the rest will all fit into place!

ps.  I have joined the ranks of the 'lappys' now so am having a wonderful time browsing through everyone's blog whilst Steve (who put his back out again on xmas eve and is still unable to walk) watches tv!  A perfect pairing really!
I will be loading a few cards and photos over the next few days. x

We three kings DT


I just wanted to pop on and share my DT cards.  I imagine everyone is very busy with Christmas preparations and I don't know who did it but someone clearly stole a few days last week!  Im sure Im not the only one feeling like this and I cant believe that by the end of just next week it will all be over for another year!

I love this image, We Three Kings, and it looks even better when the photo isn't blurry!  The fab sentiment is from a die set by Quickutz and will be coming in very useful over the coming days!  I like the understated look of this card, I feel it will become one of my favourite images!

For this card Ive used Teri's Partridge in a Pear Tree.  I've used papers by Pink Petticoat, MS Water Lily punch with Ivy leaves by X-Cut.  I used Paula Pascale's sentiment stamp set with some beautiful card candy from Clare, thanks Clare!  I am getting quite addicted to them now!

I've not been feeling too good today but hopefully it's nothing as I've got masses to do.  My xmas decorations have been on my dining table for 10dys now and still, there's no sign of them going up just yet!
I hope you are all well and getting ready for the next load of snow!

Thank you for calling in, it's your comments that really make it all so worthwhile, thank you very much.

Catch the Bug


With this card I have combined one of my favourite colour combo's with a favourite Digi Company and this is the result.  (Apologies for the photo quality, no snow here equals dull light!)

Oh and I love the sentiment too!  Well what red breathing female wouldn't!
Ive joined in with this weeks challenge over at Catch The Bug which was a very American challenge to me.  I knew about the US's Thanks Giving celebrations but nothing about 'Black Friday' so I did a little research.  Seems that Thanks Giving is the 4th thursday of November and the next day is the day that supposedly opens the flood gates in their shops for the start of Christmas shopping; the stores usually have huge sales that start at 'middle of the night' o'clock in an attempt to encourage more people to part with their hard earned! 
Seems very 'Debenhams' meets 'Next' if you ask me!!
Well, the challenge this week is' Shopping' and 'black'!  My only shopping Bugaboo image is this one of Ruby but I used a different sentiment.
The papers are all Pink Petticoat, MS and Fiskars punches and some red card candy, again, courtesy of Clare ;)
If youve got any shopping images and would like the chance to win upto 7 Bugaboo images then pop on over.
