Good morning everyone,
What a lovely mild Christmas we have had..missed the snow on Christmas Day though!! Hope you all had a really GREAT Christmas...and that Santa was good to you all!  We had a lovely time here lots of lovely goodies to eat and drink, and a little doze in front of the telly lol! Candice was really chuffed with her quiet a lot that was on her wish list. We all missed Steven and family, it wasn't the same without Liam running about ha!ha! Have been in work all week so today is the first day I have had chance to sit for more than five thought I would show one last Christmas Card I made for my Mum. I have used the sketch from A Gem of a challenge by Rebekah ...lovely sketch to work with hun really enjoyed making this card, and Mum loved it.  I made the embellishments with a  Marianne snowflake die, and added lovely red roses from WOC to it, and stickled with Gold Stickles. Added Stickles everywhere and used Glossy Accents for the baubles which you can't really see on the photo...sorry!  Does look good in real life though  lol!!

Good Morning everyone,
Wow! can you believe Christmas is almost upon us!! It's very wet and cold in Doncaster today.  I still have a lot to do, some presents still need to be chosen...I have never been this far behind, but still not feeling a l00%.  I had a house full yesterday for lunch, it was lovely, two of my brothers came, my Mum, Debs, Candice and my little grand-niece Saskia and off course my hubby David.  My bro's live in Mottram, Cheshire and they had at least 3" of snow yesterday, their car was full of snow when they arrived...Candice just loved it.  I just admired it from a distance lol!!
Would like to share some good fortune I  had last week......I won Iulia's anniversary Candy Whoooo!! I couldn't believe it, I was absolutely thrilled!!! Thank you Iulia!!  and I also won a beautiful stamp from lotv's 12 days of Christmas event..also really thrilled and excited!!! LOTV Challenge  has now closed :( but Jacqui and Bev are starting a new one on the 9th January called Lili's Little Faeries.  So pleased as I love these stamps, and I enjoy looking at all the gorgeous creations you all make! and there are some stunning new designers on the team as well.
Hope you like my card for today, not had much time to make any (but still need to lol!) it is what I made for Liam before I went away...he loved we had a special Christmas day and opened all our presents together..he was so excited.  He is such a little treasure.

 I made the inside to match the front

I used a Sarah Kay image "Santa with Toys" and coloured it with Prisma Pencils. Papers were "Barely Mine - Christmas Frolics" and "Memory Box - Mistletoe", ribbon was from "The Ribbon Girl" and my little cane I made myself with "Fimo" I couldn't find what I wanted so Deb suggested making one out of Fimo I added a little silver ball and some red ribbon.  This was my first attempt with Fimo, I was really chuffed with how it came out lol!! and my die was from "Go Kreate"  I used glamour dust on his coat and really is sparkly but not a very good photo...sorry!

Would like to enter for the following Challeges

Red, Green and White

Hope you all have a great week, and manage to get everything done in time..... Many Thanks for supporting me this year, I've only been blogging for ten months, but have met some really great people and I have 46 Fantastic Followers....have a really great Christmas and hope Santa is really good to you all Mwah!!!

Birthday Fairy

Just a quick post as I want to enter in LOTV challenge.  I only arrived home late last night from Germany, had a lovely time with Liam, but the poor little sausage wasn't very well, so we didn't do as much as we had planned.  I am also full of cold, thought my head was going to implode on the aeroplane.
Anyway on to my card.....

I have used a lotv square die cut as time is of the essence lol!! and glittered her all up with Silver Stickles!

Good morning everyone, it's wet and cold here in Donny today, although the sun is trying to shine:)  I'm getting really excited now, only two days to go before we leave for Germany. Liam will be counting how many sleeps he has left before we get there:) Isn't it lovely to be so innocent and full of expectations!! I mean Liam not me ha!ha!
I'm showing a card I made for Steve and Nicole's anniversary, I used the lovely LOTV die cut - Times to treasure, I love this image, and these die cuts are so handy to have when your mojo goes on holiday lol!! The gorgeous flowers are from WOC and are stickled with Diamond stickles.

I have used:
Paper: My mind's eye - Wild Asparagus
Image: LOTV Times to treasure
Flowers and Lace: Wild Orchid Crafts
Corners: Cuttle bug die
Sentiment: stamp-papermania
Embellishments: My stash

I did match the inside, but didn't take a photo..silly me. I'm hoping to get another post done tomorrow, as I've almost finished Liam's Christmas card, but that will be the last until I get back next week.  Hopefully I will have a chance to get into my craft room, as it will be a mad rush putting up the Christmas tree etc...unless one of Santa's little elves comes and does it for me!  Not finished Christmas shopping yet either..maybe the lovely German markets have some wonderful gifts to show me lol!!

I'm entering for the following challenges:

See you tomorrow (I hope..if not will see you when I get back) just going to do a bit of see what you lovely ladies are up too. Thank you for all your comments you leave.  Have a lovely day mwah!
