Sweet Santa Christmas

I have to admit after yesterday’s attempt with my Sweet Christmas card I decided today was time to get back to tag making, as soon be wrapping up pressies – yes I know its only October but it will soon be here !

I made this one yesterday….

Although I was happy with this, I was not 100% so me being me decided time for a change, so I re did it to this :-

Now I happier except upon looking at this now the stamping is not 100% accurate but hey ho I really cannot do anything about it now. One thing that did annoy me with this tag was the words LET IT SNOW  as instead of humming or singing the carol version Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow  I actually had the dreaded song from Frozen and I bet you are now singing that damn song ! .

So as things were going along really well I decided to keep on, as was on a roll after all.So to compliment my Sweet Christmas Card I went for it and made this …

Happy ? Well I was and figured I would make a couple more … .BIG mistake as the last two I am again not happy and should of stopped when the going was good. However I was impressed with the CBS Background stamp I used as came out so clear and crisp, unless that was to do with my stamping mat ?? Who knows

That looked much better than my first attempt of Oh Christmas Tree….

Looks very plain now I feel, maybe need different tree, bigger tree, maybe a different background ??? I have no idea to be honest. All crafted out now so am going to enjoy the rest of weekend, whats left of it.

Have a good week everyone and as always… any thoughts, compliments, criticisms, etc always welcomed 🙂

Card Making Day

As its World Cardmaking Day I decided to attempt to make a card seeing as my lovely goodies arrived this week.

I was doing so well right up to the end when it came to stamp my sentiment which took me so many attempts to get the stamp straight etc, I was beginning to give up and admit defeat.

I know its not perfect and I will be first to admit it but it was either that or tossing whole thing in bin after spending so long on it, but I will get there I know I will ….well that is what i keep telling myself ! No wonder I prefer making tags as they seem to go swimmingly well for me

Anyway here is my contribution to today….as always thoughts appreciated whether good or bad

Sweet Cones

Just came across this photo of the Sweet Cones that I made for my god daughter’s hen night.

These went down a treat and had so much fun making these ( all 30 of them ! )

I decided to use “retro” sweets i.e flying saucers, parma violets, sherbet straws, love hearts, white mice, drumsticks, rice rainbow drops etc.

Sweet cone bags are so cheap to get from Ebay if anyone decides to have a go at these
