No Cricut Christmas card!

I received these gorgeous Inkadinkado Christmas Silhouette stamps in the mail yesterday, and i couldn't wait to try them out, so last night i sat i made this card. It's been so long since i've made anything without my Cricut, it was strange but i quite enjoyed it.

Ornament card

Here is my second entry for the current BBTB contest. The circle is cut from George in 5" and 4 3/4", other cuts i used are from Storybook, Home Accents and JOTS.

Around the World Sketch!

I was over the moon when the oh so talented Kathy asked if i would do a little something for her DCM Midweek Little Extra challenge. Kathy sent a few cardmakers a copy of this fab sketch.

I liked the layout of the sketch so much, i more or less stuck to it exactly, i just turned it around. So here's the card i made.

You really must check out what the others Kathy invited to help her out have produced, they are all so different and all amazing! If you play along with this challenge, there is also going to be a prize draw, with a gorgeous prize up for grabs.

Way ahead of time!

Last night i made a card way ahead of time, as it's not even needed until 31st December! I used the design studio, George and Storybook carts to make this card for my Mum.

Oh I'd just like to say huge thank you to all who have left comments in the past, they mean a lot to me and i really appreciate them. xxxxxx

BBTB contest

Slightly better photo.

Here is my entry for the latest BBTB contest, this was the hardest thing to photograph, as not only is it made from acetate, but it also has glitter and gems on it. It looks much nicer IRL. If anyone has any tips on photographing acetate,glitter and gems, id be very grateful.
The circle and snowflakes are cut from AE, Merry Christmas & the ornament top are from JOTS.


I have a few birthdays coming up soon, so thought i'd better make a start on the cards, rather than my usual trick of trying to put something together the day before. So here are the cards i made for my Hubby's and Niece's forthcoming birthdays.
I used the Cricut Design Studio to make both these cards.

I've been given an award

Thank you so much to Nikki and Michelle, who have both kindly given me this award. You must check out their blogs, they are both very talented crafters, and give me loads of inspiration and encouragement.
I love getting awards, although i always find it hard to pass it on the others. I'd hate to offend anyone by not giving them the award, as i have more than 5 on my list that i wish to give it to. So please if you read my blog and have not yet received this award, please snag it here.

Witches Brew

click on image to see a larger view.

Here's a lunch bag i made for this weeks challenge over on Hallmarkscrapbook MB. The challenge was to use the lunch bag cut from TBBM cart and decorate it in a Halloween theme. I'm not sure if 'Witches Brew' really contains Witches, but this one does. lol.

I'm still here

I know i haven't blogged for a while, but i'm still here and still crafting, just working on projects i can't share right now.
I also had a tough week last week as we said goodbye to our dear little foster child who has now moved on to her forever family, it was a hard day for us all, but we know she'll be very happy in her new home. We are looking forward to visiting her real soon.

Here's just a few of the cards in made as a guest designer for sarahcards, using her yummy Sept cardmaking kit.
