Normal service will resume.........

after Christmas, i will start making stuff again and will hopefully have some new things to show you.

For now I'll just leave you with a card i made last month with the cardmaking kit Sarahscards sent me to work with.

I just want to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year and thank you all for your kind comments over the past year.

Santa Eeyore

I thought Eeyore looked really cute wearing a Santa hat, i'm sending this card to two of the children we used to foster, and were adopted almost two years ago.

A card for the 'really olds'.

This is another version of the card i made for my parents, this time it's for my Grandparents. I found this design was really quick to make, so went with the same design again for my 'really olds'. I'm glad they don't read my blog, i'm not sure they'd appreciate that title, he, he.

Card for our Son

I really didn't know where to start making our Son a Christmas card this year. He's almost thirteen, so cute is a no no and i did a snowflake one last year, so that was out too. Anyway this is what i came up with in the end.

Christmas card for my olds.

Here's the Christmas card i've made for my parents. I designed it using the design studio and Alphalicious, AE and JOTS carts.

If you would like the Cricut cut file for this card it's here.

Quickie cards

I need 8 cards by tomorrow to give to the ladies at my crop, and also some non-lumpy cards to put in the mail, so i decided to pull out my Inkadinkado Christmas silhouette stamps and one of the Cuttlebug border embossing folders and came up with these two designs. Very simple, but very quick to make, which i good, as i still have a few more to make.

Bling, bling!

This is another card i made with the fab 'Bling and the City' Craftytemplates goodies kit. One of the templates this month was this cute handbag. I stuck lots of the gems in the kit to the biggie silver brad (also in the kit), for a bit of extra bling, a girl can never have too much bling, right?

Simple snowman

Here's just a very simple card i made for the weekly challenge over on the Hallmarkscrapbook MB. The challenge was to use any snowman cut from any cart that has one, i chose to use the one from Doodlecharms, as i think he's really cute. I also used the snow background and the scalloped square from Zooballoo, and the birds (robins) are from Wild card.

Weekend off & more bling

I've had the weekend off crafting, not through choice, but i had a wisdom tooth removed under sedation on Saturday morning, (can't even remember leaving the clinic and travelling home), so i've not been feeling very creative, i actually lost most of Saturday, as i slept through most of it. Hopefully i'll feel up to crafting again tomorrow, as i have so much to do this week.

Anyway, here's another card i made with the Craftytemplates 'Bling & the city' goodies kit and one of this months fabulous fashion templates. I wish you could you see the pearly sheen on the patterned paper, it is gorgeous .

Another Christmas card

I took a break from design team stuff yesterday, and rustled up a simple card. I used JOTS and the design studio and came up with this little number.

A crafty day.

I do love crafting days, especially when the weather outside is dreadful, as it is today. It's wet, and very windy, with a few wintry showers thrown in too. So i'm staying in the warm and doing a bit of design team work for Sarahscards. I didn't tell you, did i?, i had an invite to join Sarahscards full time design team, working with her fab card making kits, (i have only been guest designer for them in the past) and of course i said yes.

Here's the card i gave a peek of earlier, using the scrummy Craftytemplates 'Bling and the city' goodies kit and templates Leo sent me. There's still a sale going on too, so pop over a bag yourself a bargain, or two.
