Passion for Promarkers Mega Christmas Challenge part 2

It's the 3rd week of the PfP mega Christmas challenge with the theme of 'anything goes'.
This is also my last PfP DT project for a while, as team one are back for the next 6 months, whilst us team 2 DT members have a break. I will miss it, but if the next 6 months go as fast as the last 6, it will soon be our turn again. The challenge runs until 4th January 2011, so still plenty of time to get those entries in.
The image i have used on my card is Glitz Design Hoopla- 3x3 Cake Stamp, which i have coloured with AquaMarkers.

I've scrapped!!

Shocking i know, but i've actually done a bit of scrapbooking. Before i got into making cards, i was addicted to scrapping, but now i don't have much time to do it, so this is only the fifth layout i've done this year, before that i went about two years without doing any. I used the Sarah's Cards sketch challenge as a good excuse, and i also wanted to show the ladies at my crop that Christmas themed papers don't only have to be used for Christmas pages. The papers i have used are MME-I Believe.
Check out the new sketch challenge on the Sarah's Cards blog, for the chance to win a £10 e-voucher.

Whilst i'm here i just wanted to do a quick review on these slippers i was sent by Clifford James.

When i opened the box i was delighted when i saw each slipper was in it's own drawstring cloth bag (very posh, lol) and the smell of the leather was gorgeous. They are fabulous quality, really lovely soft leather, with a good thickness of sole and the sheep skin lining is super soft. Unfortunately the sizing was little small for my Hubby, so they have been donated to my Dad, who has slimmer feet and he is over the moon with his new comfy footwear. I would recommend choosing a size larger than your normal shoe size, especially if you have wider feet.

Snow Pals

Brrrrr, it's freezing here on the east coast of Suffolk.
This week i have another quick and easy little project to share with you, (i only seem to have time for quick projects at this time of year).
I have only made one of these little treat bags so far and intend to make a few more for my Nephew to give to his friends at nursery. The image i have used is Snow Pals, from Squiggle Stamps, which is also available as a digital stamp.

Don't forget to check out the Christmas discounts in the Squiggle Stamps store until the end of the month, and this months challenge for a chance to be a guest designer in the new year.

Hi all, a few weeks ago i was contacted by Dobbies.com who asked if i would review one of their products, i agreed and they sent me these beauties to try out.
They are solar powered so can be placed anywhere you wish outside, and they give my pathway a lovely Christmassy glow. They are also multifuncional and look fabulous when flashing too.
