Just a Reminder!

Just to let you know that tomorrow is the last day of my blog candy and thought I would clarify that you have until Midnight (GMT) tomorrow to enter. I will then get the birthday boy (Lewis's birthday on Wednesday!) to pick a winner if he can tear himself away from his presents (which I haven't finished buying yet!).

Pretty hectic here again today - Lewis is better and back to school and my headache didn't turn into anything, thank goodness. However, Sam is still poorly so he spent the day at home with his Mummy colouring. I've got so many cards to make so thought I would kill two birds with one stone! Here's one of the cards I made and surprisingly enough it's not a Christmas card! My Dad wanted a card for my sister as it's her birthday on Thursday so came up with this one.


The image is Penny Black coloured with a combination of Brushables and Promarkers and used a couple of my punches to layer it, did a bit of doodling around the edge and added a little bow from my stash. DP is My Minds Eye, Sentiment is MFT and hardware, flowers and brads are from my stash.

Back to making Lewis's cards now.......we had a bit of a panic tonight as Lewis announced he had to hand in a model of the wardrobe from Narnia by tomorrow and apparently, they were informed of this two weeks ago!! Wasn't his fault 'though as he was off school the day they were told so I wasn't best pleased with his Teacher! Anyway, we managed it with the help of my Scor-pal and some of those tiny clothes hangers which I've had in my stash for years and never used......knew they'd come in handy one day!!

Enjoy your evening!

My First Christmas Card!

I saw this card demonstrated by Sue Wilson last year and have only just got around to having a go!

I'm not completely happy with the colour of the holly as I feel it is a little too bright.

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.







Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
