My 1st order for this year is complete!

I have a few orders for Christmas cards this year and have finished the first set this week.....

I really hope my friend Cheryl likes them as she is about to give birth and so shopping for Christmas cards is the last thing on her mind at the moment!

Feeling Festive :o)

Hope you like the new festive background - it took me ages to decide which one to use as there are so many about but this one won me over.

I managed a night away from the books last night and made a couple of cards for an order I have from one of my friends, I combined it with 2 challenges for this week....... The Crafty Pad Challenge - 1 circle, 2 ribbons, 3 papers and 4 gems - phew, they're all on there somewhere! And the Colour Create Challenge - green, red and white. Hope you like it xxx

Monday again

Hi there I can't believe it's Monday again. I only managed to create a couple of cards this weekend as I was so busy with studying and family visits etc not to mention breaking my kitchen table trying to punch snowflakes!!

The 2 I completed are both using the same stamp and similar embellishments but different colour themes and layouts and I'm pleased with them both. I'm entering the red one into the Forever Friends Challenge this week which is to use glitter.

Let's hope I can get cracking on some more this week and not break anything else!!

Causing a stir!

My latest addition to my galleries is receiving some fabulous "lilac lady" is taken from the new Debbi Moore CDRom which is beautiful.

I was in Newcastle shopping with my Mum when we came across Debbi doing demonstrations. I instantly fell in love with the images and after chatting with Debbi for sometime and receiving a personal tutorial, Mum said she would buy me the CDRom for Christmas.

Typically she couldn't wait to get home and try it out! I limited myself to one image (want to keep the rest as a Christmas present!) and this was my result

The CDRom is so easy to use and the images are so beautiful, you even get the template to make the fancy folds too! All of this with some gems, a piece of freebie kit ribbon and loads of glitter, I'm really pleased with the result but even more pleased by the comments I've been receiving, she's causing quite a stir!!

Baby News!

Congratulations to my friend Leonie and her husband Steve on the safe arrival of Ethan James! It was the perfect opportunity to make a card using the Forever Friends Challenge this week which was a sketch. I've had the Jessie Edwards papers for ages and wanted to make something a bit seasonal instead of the normal cute baby blues - hope everyone likes it!

Let it Snow!

Well, autumn is definately making way for winter this weekend, it's really cold up north today! So, a little bit of inspiration for the Club Anya challenge which this week is "Let it Snow"

I hope you like her, I used art snow for the first time and sprinkled it with glitter as well as glittering the words "snow" on the backing paper..... Brrrrrr!
