Christmas Cards Completed

Am so pleased with myself. As a  still relatively newbie to crafting / card making I think I have come along away. What started off as a simple reindeer stamp card I have slowly gotten better, Yes I still have alot of room for improvement but for me this is a great milestone.

I am so pleased with how I have finished the last few cards for family members. I will admit I know there is a slight mistake with the Nutcracker card but overall I am besides myself, just glad I got them all made as now begins the hectic month of Decemeber for me.

I also made some tags for Snowman Soup which i will be making very soon.

What do you think ? Have I come along way ?

As always any feedback greatly welcomed 🙂

Apologies ….

Hi Everyone

I am sorry for lack of posts recently it’s just that I have been so busy past couple of weeks.

2 weeks ago my Goddaughter and her husband surprised me with a lovely day out which resulted in going to their 3D /4D baby scan of their 2nd baby, lunch and then went to London to watch Tennis. Had a brilliant day out and seeing their Little One on a scan was unreal and even more excited to meet the Little One.

It’s so amazing what they can see now with a scan and makes you wonder what they can in the future.

Last weekend I went out with a friend Christmas shopping. Was a lovely day out but came back bit empty handed, which was expected as I already have most presents. Just struggling to get parents theirs, I mean what do you get parents who simply just say ” a card will do ” ? and have all what they want ??

Next Monday me and my mum are off on our annual concert to see our fab boys The Overtones. No doubt I will be aching the next day as they do put on a brilliant show and you are up on your feet soon as they appear on stage until you go home.

So today i have nothing to do so quite looking forward to a day of relaxing and crafting … Yay ! and trying out my new fab dies…. To be honest I got a bit fed up with a company who sells these so i made mental note not to buy from them again. Anyway enough of that.

To my friend across the pond I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. Also hope everyone is remaining calm with Christmas season upon us and not running about like a headless chicken.

Before I forget.. Thankyou to Jessica for your kind words I do appreciate them 🙂

Have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing 🙂

Super Saturday

I have been so busy with finishing off Christmas Eve Box No2 that I have been unable to do any crafting, unless you count making christmas eve box crafting as consists of wood glue and paint ??

So as I had a spare free day I decided to make some Christmas Cards for family members and I will admit that I had mental block to start with. I had everything ready to go, some die cuts ready and then I hit a slump. What makes it more frustrating is that I have some dies I cannot use as I need my new fang dangled machine which Santa is bringing me… Not to worry as come Boxing day I will be well away 🙂

So here are 4 cards I made and as always any feedback greatfully received

Have a great weekend Everyone 🙂
