Hope you all had a lovely Christmas

I had a nice quiet one. Boys loved it and Father Christmas and family were very kind to them and they got some lovely goodies. I got a few nice bits and bobs, sadly no craft stuff but I am used to that as I never do, Darren just doesnt know where to start with that and Mum thinks I have far to much stuff already. I am sure a lot of you understand the obsession with crafts/stamps and can sympathise with me ;)

Today kicks off the launch of Sale-A-Bration a fantastic Stampin Up! promotion. I had to tell you all about it as you dont want to miss out. There are 4 exclusive sets that you can not buy, these are for the SAB months only , end Dec, Jan and Feb and then they are gone.

I just knocked out this flyer about it and email me for more info. CLICK TO MAKE LARGER

If I dont speak to you before have a fantastic end to 2009 and a great 2010 welcoming.

Twilight Christmas Card

I made this card with some Twilight digi images from Greeting Farm for my niece Kiera who loves the film. She is particularly keen on Carlisle so I thought as well as Bella I would use him as well.

Click on the image and it should get bigger and you can see the vampires even sparkle!


Christmas Table

Not something I usually think about too much but I stumbled across some adorable images from one of my favourite artists Cristy Croll and I had to buy a couple and then of course I needed to use them. So here they are :)

I have used the Christmas Holly fairy and teamed with Stampin Up! papers and ribbons. I cant wait to set these out on the table with the crackers and I also punched some holographic stars and snowflakes too

I opened them in pageplus, added the words, printed and coloured with Promarkers. Cute eh?

A few more Christmas cards

Here are a few Christmas cards I made last night and finished off with glitter today. Mum, Dave and Sue, Dani and Kieran stop looking now!

Now I will waffle a bit in hope that the pictures dont appear in view on my facebook so they wont see them unless they make an effort to look to see them and in that case its up to them! :) What can I say, I am the worlds worst at surprises.

I have used some old stamps, these are by Stampendous and I am pritty sure not available anymore. However I have had them for some years now and I wont part with them, they are so cute and fun arent they?

Coloured with watercolour pencils, some spotty ribbon from stash, glitter from Stampin Up! and punches were too and the Craftwork Cards oval message. Oh and the writing stamp is a retired Elzybells (I believe its retired, It was an old StampingCaz design)
Hope everyone is keeping safe in the ice and snow. Its very slippery here today so I am going to stay in with the kids and not venture out.

Firstly here are some cards I have made for a demonstrator swap for SAB- Saleabration is a 2 month long promotion through Stampin' Up! and there are 4 sets to choose from which are FREE and any person placing an order for £45 can choose a set from the 4. More details to follow.

Some very quick cards made, I have only made about 12 this year!

here is a pencil box that I decorate for Caidens teacher Mrs Cooper

and this is a pencil box I have decorated for Harveys teacher Mrs Cooper. Yes I know very confusing that they are both named the same!

Please excuse the rubbish photos, havent had a chance to try and make them look decent!

I hope you all have a Happy Christmas. We've been having fun in the snow. Although Caiden hasnt been well so we are having to stay in now.

Firstly here are a couple of cards I made some time ago. I made them for a magazine article but they didnt want them so sent them back to me. I have meant to upload them for ages but havent had a chance. I have used Anya and Ian stamps on both of them.

I have also been working on a little box tonight, its a pencil box which I have decorated for one of the teachers, well one of the Mrs Coopers since that is what boy boths teachers are called!

Light is rubbish and the photo not great but better than nothing eh? The stamp I used for this was quiet a tricky one to choose due to the orientation of the box, so I had a rummage in the stamps I had up at the house and found this Hero owl one.
