Granddaughters first Christmas

Now what do you think she had more fun with the presents or the wrapping
Oh she was so good when she came to stay with us.
So were you all good girls and boys and got all the pressies you wanted.
I got a quiet Christmas which I am thankful for
and now the table is cleared.
a space again to play with my craft stuff.
I wonder how long it will be before I will start taking down the christmas cards and decorations
Oh a tip if your into recycling and in the UK
The woodlands trust would like your cards
Have a Happy New year
don't drink too much

Last cards from me for this year

and yes they are my last Christmas cards for 2008 too
Two very quick cards from some free papers from card making and paper craft magazine. I just cut and decoupaged and mounted them up very quickly with a bit of glitter added to the cuffs and Santa's beard.
Am I prepared for Christmas and the New Year ?
Well for Christmas no.. but I never am and this year has not had that special twinkle for me so hopefully 2009 will be better.

Here's a sneak peek of the new blog outlay for 2009

Have a wonderful Christmas and I'll have some new treats for you on Jan 1st

The Snowman

Woo hoo my camera finally decided to work again
and this is sort of what I had in mind for a quick card I have loads of these packets of tissues 10p per pack from the local shop.
Using the top layer from two of the tissues I fixed one to the card and frayed the edges then with the other I attached it to a piece of card and cut out the main figures and decoupaged it, added a little glitter and voila a simple Christmas card.
Ive always known this as the napkin technique it is really effective.

OOOH this chill factor....

....and cold had me making a blue one

The same whiff of joy stamp used with copics again and some snowflake backing paper I glittered up a bit. Ive not been able to go in the shed Boo hoo as the electrics went and nearly fried the plug socket so Hubby is going to fix it hopefully before next week but it means I've moved some essentials into the house
he..he..he......see how long it takes before its back in the shed and not on the table.

Anyone want a cold.....

I feel lousy with it and it has zapped my energy to do anything, let alone get crafty.
Ive managed to make a few cards to show you but until this grotty blanket lifts all I want to do is wrap up and watch a few dvds on the tv.
whats your favourite movie to snuggle down too when your ill ?
Oh the posties just been,I think the movie can wait
my stampin up order has arrived oooooh goody
Thanks Jules
I can feel fingers wanting to play again LOL

Christmas is rich with Red and Gold ....

....and red is my favourite colour

So this charlie stamp from Whiff of Joy had to have a red jumper.
I coloured him with Copics,glittered a couple of snowflakes
and mounted him onto a Christmas paper.
I have no idea where the paper came from
so if you can enlighten me I would much appreciate it as it was my last piece LOL

Its raining well.....

........ actually its started to snow here not alot but a flurry
Here in the UK its all stop as soon as the first flake falls but any hoo I managed to get to use my new SU tab punch on this card its come in so handy this last month with organising my folders let alone cards
The stamps from Whiff of Joy, papers simply elegant from papermania, I used copics to colour and distress round the edges, a bit of ribbon, tag and a few corners some glittered with stickles

A Set of Snowflakes

I was asked to make 2 card sets by my sister
With a lot of help from my PTI stamps sets snowflake additions and Silent Night
I've managed to get them done (It was looking dodgy if I managed to make them in time)
Heres one of the many I had to make.
I might even be done before Christmas with my cards LOL
