Snowman in pink!

Here's my latest card, made for the weekly challenge over on Hallmark MB, again made using the design studio. The challenge was to use any snowflake cut. My snowman is showing his feminine side and looking dashing in pink, i think he can carry it off.

I'm really organised as far as i've already bought all my Christmas gifts for all my family, but i haven't made enough Christmas cards yet, yikes!, so i've just sat and made this one. The base was done using the design studio, with George and Storybook carts, i then just added the holly from JOTS, a piece of ribbon and a few gems, job done!

Good luck card

This is the card i gave to our fostering support worker today, along with the baby album, which went down a treat,she cried!, hopefully because she loved it, not because she hated it.

I'm still here

No i haven't fell off the face of the earth, or been buried alive in a stash mountain, but i have been busy.

I've been making an 8x8 baby boy album to give to our fostering support worker, who is expecting her first baby in February. The pages are very simple, they just need her to add her favorite photographs of baby, but it has still taken me four days to do 20 pages. It was a bit of a rush job, so i'm not 100% happy with it, but she's not a crafter, so i'm sure she'll like it.

Hallmarkscrapbook weekly challenge.

This week Sharon set the challenge over on Hallmarkscrapbook MB to use either the Holly or the Poinsettia cut from JOTS. You don't have to make a card for the challenge, it can be a layout, altered item, or anything you want. I chose to use the holly cut, and welded lots of them onto a circle using design studio. As i haven't used my Mickey and Friends cart for ages, i decided to make a Minnie Christmas card.

Hugs & Kisses

This is the Christmas card i've made for my Hubby. I love that cute 'Tweety' on the Wild Card cart. The scalloped circle is from Mini Monos, the circle is from George, the Santa hat is from PDDU, and all the other cuts, including 'Hugs & Kisses' are from Wild Card.

Craftytemplates advent project

A few weeks ago Leo at Craftytemplates sent me this kit filled with some brand new Fancy Pants goodies from the 'Happy Holidays' range.

She also sent templates to make an advent project. This is what i made, shame my Son thought it was too girlie for him, so i filled it with 'grown ups' chocolates, and now it's for me (result!).

It rocks!

Yes, this rocking horse really does rock!

I made this card for the weekly challenge over on the Hallmarkscrapbook MB, Carole set this weeks challenge and we had to use the rocking horse from JOTS cart. I was quite stumped as what to do with it at first, but then i had a flash of inspiration, and decided to cut the circle card from Wild Card cart, mount the rocking horse on the bottom so he really ROCKS!

Mug cut file

Ok, i've had a few requests for the cut file of my mug, so here it is. It would be really nice if you use the cut file, and you came back and linked your creation to this post, i'd love to see what you do.

There are two versions included in this cut file, one using just George, the other using George and Street Sign. Enjoy!

Here's the cut file

If you are down loading this cut file from outside the UK, you need to go to your ‘Control Panel’, then ‘Clock, Language and Region’ then ‘Regional and Language Options’, then ‘Change the date, time or number format’, change it to English (United Kingdom), apply. Download and open the cut file in CDS, then go back and change your setting to English (United States)or (your country), go back to CDS and save it. This should work, I hope you understand my instructions.

Look what Nancy did!!!

I was very happy to share my mug cut file with Nancy when she asked if i would. Just look what she did with it!, isn't it just gorgeous?

Check out her blog here, she is one seriously talented lady, you won't be disappointed.

More Christmas projects.

Here's a few more things i made using the yummy ribbons from Ribbonoasis.

Just like to say a huge thank you to all who take the time to leave me comments, everyone of them is appreciated. xxx

DCM & Kathy's sketch

This weeks dare over on DCM was to to create a card with some sparkle and bling, well i love a bit of bling, so it would have been rude not to play along.
Kathy,one of the Dare design team, has a fabulous sketch she's designed on her blog, which i was also was dying to use, so i combined the two and this what i came up with. The little birdie is from the Wild Card cart and cut from DCVW glitter cardstock, the off centre circle frame and tree are also from the same cart.
Kathy has just started a new blog, where she will share all her great sketches, you must check it out HERE.
