Don't you just think that these flowers are beautiful!
They came from school last Friday as a thank you
for all the work I did with the school fair.

Here our tree on Christmas Eve just before we went to bed with all the presents!

Last of my Christmas cards!

Here are my final three Christmas cards.

Anna Griffin papers, die cuts & tag.

I made this card for a card class.

This is last weeks card for my class.

Thanks for looking!

Right I had better get back to preparing for tomorrow.
I will have a house full this year so it will be all go.
Boxing day wil be quieter this year as we normally go to my Mother in laws
but this year she has gone on holiday.
So I think it will be a quiet day at home this year for the three of us, Adele will
be spending most of the day at her boyfriend Ben's house.

Merry Christmas to you all!

Craft Fair Items!

Freeze dried snowballs


Reindeer Pooh

I thought I had better show these tonight as I have four more Christmas cards to
show you tomorrow.
Then that will be all my Christmas items shown up to date!


Poinsettia & Tag Cards

This poinsettia card is a little different to the card I made before.
I used different paper.
Stamped my greeting on red card stock
and toned down the red & yellow paper with a chalk ink pad.

The purple card was quite a simple and quick card to make.
The paper came from Dovecraft.
The round embellishment came from Tesco last year in the sales.
I stamped the tag with my black Stazon then coloured in with
embossing felt pens and then embossed with clear embossing powder.

Have a grest evening everyone!

I have got three draws full of scraps to use up in the New Year,
should keep me busy!

Hello everyone!
Sorry I have not been around much but I have been very busy!
What with school Christmas fair, craft fairs, card orders
and to top it all I am not well again!

I have just finished my last card order and I think I am ready for a rest :-).
I have a few Christmas cards to show you over the next few days
and I now need to tidy my craft room up as it is in a right mess.

See you all soon!

I am back!!!

Hello everyone, I am finally back in the land of blogging!!!
How I have missed it.
Thank you to everyone who has been asking after me.
I had a really bad head cold and was poorly for a few days, I missed Jake's concert
at school, very disappointed at that:-(.
Then Jake caught it and was off school for a couple of days.
So now we are getting back to normal and I am so far behind with things!

I have had a few messages asking about Kitty, she is doing ok at the moment.
Her eating is up and down a bit, she only goes outside now and again.We are all very happy
that she is slowly getting back to her old self!

Today's card was made for Adele's boyfriends birthday.
Quite fitting really as he is in a band!

I have got some more cards made I just need to get them photographed.
The lighting here is terrible at the moment.

Bye for now!
