So sorry I have been a bad blogger of late, but this time of year is always busy, busy, busy for me and is when I can make myself a little bit of pocket money to buy some lovely new stash!!
I have a few commissions at the moment, a Calender, two Scrapbooks and a few cards + I have two Christmas Fairs in the next week, so all go!
I have made a couple more of these little "House hooks" after I sold one at a Fair a few weeks ago, so hopefully someone will take a fancy to this new one, along with the other Christmassy things I have made.
The bare wood house base is from "Samuel Taylor" shop. I sanded down all the rough edges, covered it in Gesso and then painted it with Dovecraft Acrylic Paints. I have stamped and embossed on the roofs, have stamped on papers and have made a frilly house roof edge with a Tim Holts rosette die. I have added a wooden house piece to one of the panels, a metal key & Bumble Bee and a large Craftwork Cards Flower.
To be honest it looks much better in real life, my photography has alot to do with the way it looks I am sure!

Another week bites the dust, and we edge closer to the Festive Season (and another Birthday for me!)
I do love my Birthday on Christmas Day, my Children have always made it so special for me, even when they were little they would say Christmas over now, now it's Mum's time! Bless 'em.
At evening time it would be all the Christmas pressies away, and all change for my Birthday stuff.
Anyway another Saturday means another challenge at Sweet Stampin', so what is the theme this week I hear you ask...Didn't you!!
Well it's "Snow People"....So get your Christmas stamps inked up and join in. Our sponsors this week are Di's Digi Downloads and Bugaboo.
This is my card for this weeks challenge. I have chosen a Bugaboo image, isn't it so cute?
Call over and see all their lovely Digi Images here:.http://www.bugaboostamps.com/
The large stamped snowflake was free on this months Craft Stamper magazine, and it's really lovely.
I have added a wooden snowflake too.

Sorry I have been missing in action for a while.
My friend Angie and I have been on our Annual shopping spree to Glasgow. We go every year at this time, and although it is primarily a "Christmas Pressie Shopping" trip, a bit of "Crafting" was on the cards at the wonderful "Craft World" shop.
The shop is fab and has the largest supply of 12x12 papers I have ever seen, just wonderful. They also had a workshop running, so we joined in and made two lovely cards.
I will upload a photo of the cards we made later, but for now I have another LOTV Teddy and Robin card to show you. This one is made with Kraft card and Kraft LOTV papers. The sentiment postmark stamp is by Clarity Stamps. I have also used some Hobbyhouse pearls to finish off.

As it's Saturday it's Challenge Time over at ~Sweet Stampin'~ and this week is a goodie with
"All that Glitters", so nice one this week.
I have chosen to make my Glittery DT card a Christmas Card, as you can never have enough Christmas Cards!!
I have used a Mo Manning image, some papers from my leftover stash, a craftwork cards sentiment, and the lovely Memory Box Modern Landscape die. I hope you can see all the Stickles Glitter I have put on the snow, snowflakes, and image.
