A big Merry Christmas and thank you to all my followers.
My craft room has now been cleaned up and my Christmas table out for my guests coming, so no crafting for me until after the Big Day!
I will also be 50 that day, so I may be a bit worse for wear when I return.
All the Best and I will be looking in on you all as I still have access to my pc.

Thank You~

Hi All~

Well pleased to report it has slightly warmed up here (at least there is not a minus on the temperature gauge)! BUT won't hold my breath as it's set to be cold again after the weekend.

Must apologise for the awful photo, camera settings have been changed by my son and I cannot get them to work properly!!! Arrr.

I have made a Thank You card today. It is for my daughter to send to her old work Friends, to thank them for the gifts they gave her when she left last Saturday.
She is enjoying her new job, but it's not as busy as she is used to and I think she is going a bit stir crazy (she is one of these that does everything at 100 miles an hour, so a doctors surgery is a bit quiet for her)!
She will have a good go at chilling out, and It will do her good.

The image on this card is not one of my own, it is one sent to me a while ago when I won a challenge. I thought he looked a bit sad to be honest, but I do love him, who doesn't like a teddy bear?
I have chosen to use my cuttlebug to emboss again on this card and also dug out an old script stamp I had not used in ages to stamp the background paper. Teddy is coloured with pro-markers. I have used my trusted NS flower punch and leaf were used again and the sentiment is a personal impressions.

Pretty Fairy~

Hi All~
Thank you for all the wonderful comments about my son's Snowman, he was dead chuffed with them.
Unfortunately although it looks like the Snowman is a "Giant" (and my Son a genius Snowman builder) it is the angle the photograph was taken at. It is about 4 foot high, not the 7 foot that it looks like in the photo.
I did laugh when Chris (fellow blogger) said it looked like one of the Blue's Brothers, Ha Ha, (must be those old sunglasses!).
Mind you Matthew said he will pass on making the other "Brother" (as Chris suggested, Lol) as his hands are still too cold from making the first one!

Tonight's card is made with a Penny Black image, Isn't she cute? Really girly and nice.

I wanted to make something other than a Christmas card...I have made loads the last two weeks, so making this card made a lovely change.
The DP are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses and the NS large and small poinsettia punch for the flowers. Image is coloured with copic pens. All finished off with some Kars cord in blue and a few Hobbyhouse Gems in bright pink.

3 of a kind~

Hi All~

What on earth is going on with this weather? When I got up this morning I thought someone had transported me to Russia!! Brrrrrr.

I have made a batch of cards today, Christmas of course, made with this lovely vintage Father Christmas image..(unfortunately I have no idea the make of stamp, I have had him sometime now).

I have used my cuttlebug to emboss the white matted layers (love this technique) I like the pure white with the black mirri board think it's very clean and simple...Perfect when you want to make lots of card quickly. These three cards took me 40 minutes from start to finish.
In between crafting I am watching my son build the most fantastic snowman in the garden, his college is closed (he's a happy bunny!) and he's decided he does not need to study...he needs to build a snowman instead....don't blame him either!!
Thought you might like to see the photo he took, good isn't it?

Should have explained~

What a nutter I am. Just realised I did not explain why the New Job card (see earlier post) had a get well image on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well it is meant to resemble a job in a doctors surgery, a nurse/receptionist/chemist etc...
Did not even give it a thought to explain it....Sorry.


Good Luck Eve~

Hiya Folks~

Cannot believe it's a whole week since I last posted.....Arrr I need more hours in the day!!

I am having a ball at the mo, it's crafting and more crafting......All commissions tho!
Finding it hard to make any cards at the moment, even my Christmas Cards, but have the whole day today, so will try to make a few, that is before I watch Strictly, X Factor and Merlin later on!

It is my Birthday on Christmas Day and I will be the big 50...I know, it's not something I should be shouting about, but I am looking forward to it. There are lots of phone calls about me and whispering which stops when I enter the room....This can only be all good......PRESSIES for me!!
I am like a big kid I am afraid and LOVE opening gifts, especially if I have no idea whats in them. I put this down to the effect that Christmas Day is like that anyway and I just add to the fun with my Birthday, it's always gone down well in my house with the kids.

No more waffling now...
Today's card is for my beautiful daughter Eve. She is leaving her job today to start a New one on Monday. She has been with the same department store since she was 16 and is now nearly 20. An opportunity came up to do more hours somewhere else and she has taken it. I wish her all the best, her dad and I are very proud of the lovely woman she has turned into. All our love and best wishes sweetheart, this card is for you. Mum xx
