A little Bird Told Me!!

Hello Girls~

Hope the Festive Season is going well for you. I am having a ball and looking forward to New Year. It is my turn to entertain our friends this year, so I am really excited, I love cooking for guests and they are such good friends it will be a fab time.

At Sweet Stampin' this week our theme is "A little bird Told me", so I have not been able to resist using the LOTV bear and Robin (as this has been my all time favourite image of this Christmas).
It will also be my last Christmas card posting until later into next year (unless, I go on an Early Bird jaunt in Festive card making!!!)
Our sponsors this week are Crafty Ribbons.

I have used some paper from my stash, my trusted Memory Box Bunting Die, a corner die by Whiff of Joy, a sentiment by Craftwork Cards .

Enjoy yourselves and speak again soon.

Gone...but I will Return!!

Hi Girls....

Are you all getting ready for the Festive Season Arriving!!

I am. Spent all day Sunday cleaning and  putting up my Decorations.
I love putting up the tree and decorating it. Every year I buy a couple of new ornaments and this years two are a metal Snowman and Father Christmas. They are really cute with long spindly legs, pleased they look great on the tree.

Well now my tree is up means NO MORE CRAFTING UNTIL 2014!! (May have another Scheduled post for Sweet Stampin' to come yet though).
I have to clear everything away in order to get my huge tree up (it's worth it tho').
I am not away from Blogland over the Festive Season, I can still visit you all, as my Birthday's on Christmas Day it's usually a bit hectic at this time of year for me.
I adore cooking and entertaining so New Year is manic too, I will be a tad quiet in Blogland for a few weeks.

A big Merry Christmas to you all and a prosperous New Year.

Sweet Stampin' Last minute Christmas Card~

Hello Girls~

Saturday is here again.....Not long to the Big Day now! (That's my Birthday I mean!! Well it is Christmas Day!! Not that I want to tell you how old I am!)

Anyway, it's another Challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this week is a Goodie....Last minute Christmas Card. (Our Sponsors this week are Cuddly Buddly)
This is a great challenge if you are behind on your Festive Season cards! (Glad to say I have finished all my cards and have delivered most of them!)

For my card today I have chosen to use a LOTV topper. This little topper is from my stash from last year, it is so sweet, love the little dog in a hat amongst all those lovely pressies!
The papers are MME and Bo-Bunny the red sparkle dots are Do-Crafts and the ribbon is from my local market. The Sentiment is Craft Work Cards, bunting is Memory Box and the Flower is an old die by Nellie Snellen.

Nice way to give Money!

Hi Ladies

Hope you are all well, thank you for the lovely comments you have left for me, so nice of you.
I have been very busy of late, so not had time to do as much Blogging as I would like too.

My friend Angie and I have been selling our "Makes" at local Christmas Fairs....It's gone really well so far, our last one for this year is Wednesday coming.

I have a gift holder to show you today. I have sold quite a few of these, I think a few people give money and vouchers instead of a present at Christmas, so these have been very popular. These are for my Daughter's friend at work.

This is what I do on the inside. Two little pockets and a place to write a message on. 
I was asked to make three of these wallets, so this is the inside of the one I did not show you in the photo above. You probably knew that as the inside does not match either of the papers on the above wallets!!
The papers used are all from my stash (good project for using up all your leftover papers.)
Cardstock is Bazill Basics, Toppers are Kanban Traditional Christmas (love these).
All ribbon is from my local Market Stall.

Home Sweet Home~

Hello Girls~
I hope I find you all well and you have hopefully escaped this dreadful Gusty Weather we are having. My garden looked a bit battered and I have been cleaning up, what feels like everyone in the streets "recycling", which has made it's way from their big bag to my front garden!! But at least no one has been hurt with us, unlike some poor people.

I have made a New Home card for a friend who is leaving to go live in Scotland, so hope you like it.
I have chosen some Pion papers and a lovely House Stamp by Stamping Bella called "Artsy House
Although the background card looks black in the photo (my cra**y photography again!!) the colour is actually a gorgeous dark violet colour to match the papers and house colour.
The Sentiment is LOTV, the pearls are Hobby House (as always) and the little banner (which I love) is a Memory Box die. The image is coloured with Pro-Markers.
