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
