busy little bee!!!!!!!!

I've been really busy over the last couple of days doing that last minute christmas stuff and even managed to find time to make my neices a little notebook to put in their christmas gift bag.... Yes I made 10 of them. in fact I have a total of 16 neicies and 3 nephews, sadly we dont see all of them.
I used a variety of cardstock, papers and ribbons from my stash along with my bind-it-all to fix them together. Hopefully I've got their favourite colours right!!

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you and your families a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

I'm so happy at the moment I've just received a complimentary copy of Just Cards Magazine Volume 16 and guess what that only happens when you've had work published in there ( page 34/35)!!!!!!!!!

Yes little old me published, I had totally forgotten that I sent a card of way back in January of this year . You could knock me down with a feather.

My hubby and daughters are gobsmacked I didn't tell them anything about sending my work off.

I'm so sorry I can't share the photo with you on my blog until the magazine is out, but I just had to share my news.......

Winter Green.........

Oh Why have Stampin' Up! discontinued these papers they're my favourite. Here is a card using my take on the Sketch and Stash challenge number 25 that runs until the 4th Jan. I've used some silver mirri card along with Sage Shadow cardstock from Stampin' Up! the stamp set is Lovely as a Tree with some Dazzling Diamonds added for that sparkle. The ribbon is from my stash.

better late than never

Here's another card I made using a sketch that can be found over at Friday Sketchers. I just loved this layout and had to have a go when I found the time.

Again I've used a Penny Black Image coloured with Promarkers, a computer generated sentiment and Stampin' Up! Winter Green Designer Papers (sadly retired) along with Sage Shadow and Always Artichoke Card stock. And to finish it off I've used some stickles and Certainly Celery Ribbon from Stampin' Up!

another card another challange

Here I've used the sketch challenge that can be found over at Stamp With Us to make a Christmas Card for my friends Nephew. I've used discontinued Stampin' Up! designer paper along with Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon and Night of Navy Card stock.

The image is from Penny Black which I have coloured in using Promarkers and added a little sparkle with stickles (you cant have a Christmas card without glitter now!!!!!!!)

Busy Busy Busy!!!!!!!

This weekend was really hectic for me on Saturday I went out to a crop and managed to start 3 different layouts not one of them finished....urgh!!!!

I was planning to drive down to Portsmouth on Sunday to pick up Amy (as Uni broke up for the christmas holidays on friday) BUT when I arrived home on Saturday Evening there AMY was sitting in my front room!!

Her favourite Uncle decided that he'd surprise us both and drive down to see her digs and deliver her to me.....

Which allowed me to catch up on my christmas cards on Sunday. Here are a couple of "shaker" cards I made for my neicies........

I had a fantastic day out two weeks ago over in Essex with Steph. She laid on a lovelly spread for us as well as four FABULOUS make and takes, (I forgot to take my camera but there are some photos over on her blog).

I loved one of the layouts she did on her cards that much that I've cased it using Stampin' Up! products ~ Merry Moments 12x12 papers/Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Vanilla Cardstock/Real Red Grossgrain Ribbon/Season of Joy Stampset

Tree Trimmings

Here are a couple of cards that I've made using traditional colours and the Tree Trimmings Stamp set from Stampin' Up! as the main focal point.
I've glittered some of the baubles with Dazzling Diamonds and raised them up with Dimensions
