Sorry for my lack of posts, we had my Mum's funeral on Friday and I have not felt like crafting at all.  I did start some Christmas cards and have managed to finish them.

I used Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla cardstock, the stampset is Contempo Christmas stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I daubed around the edge of the top piece of very vanilla with cherry cobbler ink then I mounted onto another piece of very vanilla which I punched around the edge with the scallop corner and scallop edge punches. Last I mounted this onto a Cherry Cobbler card 9.5 x 9.5cm.

With this one I cut out the tree and used foam pads to lift it. The card under the very vanilla piece is crumb cake, everything else is the same.
Hope you like them, thanks for stopping by....

December ATC


This months ATC is all about Christmas, I thought yippee I have lots of christmas stampsets, but then it was hard to decide which one to use. I was inspired by a card I had seen using the large tree from Lovely as a Tree stampset to make the branches of a christmas tree, it is really effective, I love it.  I must admit I have used it on some of my christmas cards.  I also used a retired set called 'Hung Up on the Holidays' has the cutest little gingerbread man which I stamped out onto shrink plastic using soft suede ink. I then cut them out and punched a tiny hole which I threaded thin wire through. Then I shrank them and using the wire hung them on the christmas tree branches.

 I did the same with the two baubles in the same set, to make more decorations for the tree and of course you have to add a bit of glitter don't you......
I hope you like them, back with more craft soon....

 I have managed to put our Christmas Tree up, got to keep the children happy...  I do love my tree but it does take a bit of putting up.

Every year I buy at least one new decoration for the tree, although this year its a bit different and I haven't bought any.......yet.  I love looking around garden centres this time of year they always have such spectacular displays.

As you can see I like owls, bears and I like personalised ornaments for my children, J for Joshua, K is for Kate, the little snowglobes also have their names on too. And as you now know I love cute.........

Well thanks for stopping by, I will be back with this months ATC ...See you soon.

So sorry for my absence, my lack of posts is down to the fact I lost my Mum and have been finding it hard to get things done.. I have been trying to get in the christmas spirit with no luck, even the snow which I would normally love has not lifted my spirits. I have done a little bit of craft and I will share it with you when I have done some photos.
Well I am off to put up the christmas tree, my children have been nagging me, and I must find their advent calendars.....

Thanks for stopping by...
