Christmas Cheer!

Well, this has got to be my favourite christmas card I have made this year. It has a picture of my gorgeous children on it that was taken on last years Christmas Day. They do make me laugh when I see them in this picture...soooo not impressed with what they are wearing aren't they?!!!

I have put inside the card 'Christmas Cheer....!' - its for both grandparents and their godparents - hope they like it!

As this will no doubt be my last message before Christmas, I want to thank you for stopping by this past 6 months, for all the lovely comments you have taken the time to leave me and wish you all a wonderful christmas and fantastic 2009!!

Artymiss DCWV Bumper Box for only £25!!

Well it felt like christmas today when my Artymiss DCWV Bumper box arrived. It said on the ad £150 worth of items for £25, but was a bit dubious of what would be in it. However, what a nice surprise it was when I opened it to find it packed with goodies!!! There was a 12x12 stack, 2 x 8x8 stacks, loads of vellum quotes, 20 packets of dome stickers, ribbons, loads of chipboard packs and a set of embossed cards with matching envelopes. Definately worth the £25!!

If you have a bit of money to spare this christmas, I would definately recommend getting it.

16th Birthday Card

Made a 16th birthday card for my friend, but didn't want to put 16 on it...forgot I had these papers and the chipboard message seemed appropriate - 'Live life to the fullest' - given then age!!

Love the colours too!!

First ever notebook from scratch (ish!)

I was asked if I could make a decorated notebook - here is what I came up with. I stripped it all apart and rebuilt and recovered it - I love these papers, looks very classy.

Thankfully my friend loved it!!

Jingle Bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way!!

Yes, I have made yet another card using the fantastic DCWV Christmas Matstack - I think I am actually in love with it!!

I found some lovely bells in Hobbeycraft that matched the colours of this matstack rather well, so thought I would try and card with them all - they are so cute!!

I am also, at the moment, wondering whether to treat myself to some nestabilities - if anyone has got any opinions on them, please let me know!! I have no whether to get large or small, what shape etc so any advice would be appreciated!!

Bye for now xxxxx

Another Christmas Card!

Can't you tell it is that time of year again, when birthday cards get put on hold and the sheer volume of christmas cards that you have to make gradually creeps up on you like a mad panic?

Here is another one - I have left the sentiment off this one until I figure out what to put on it. However, I have finally used glitter on a card - yay!!

I do like this colour of card...only another 50+ to make....!!

Would love to know what you think!

All my gorgeous birthday cards!

Hello all

Sorry for the lack of posting, but couldn't find my camera - grrr.

Anyway, I wanted to show you a picture of all the stunning birthday cards I received from my fellow crafters. How absolutely amazing are they? I was chuffed to bits to receive so many, and was taken aback at the time and effort people put in them to make me a card.

Thank you to all that sent me one, it really made my birthday.

I have also included a picture of the 3 cards my hubby, 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son made for me. I gave them blank cards, a bag of craft bits and stayed in bed until they had done them. Was quite impressed with their talents!!

Right, off to make some christmas cards - 4 done, 50+ to make.....!!

Cute as a Button

I keep finding that I have loads of male cards to make, and I really am no good at making them!!

This is what I came up with, was asked for it to have the word cousin on it. This it could have had a bit more layering now when I look at it, but hey ho, at least I did my first bit of doodling!!
