What a Day!

It's just coming up to quarter past four in the afternoon and I have just literally got back to the house and managed to sit down for five minutes! Was up all night with toothache and managed to get in with the Emergency Dentist at the hospital this morning who told me my abscess is back and has given me some anti-biotics to try and calm it down. Since then, have been dropping off Christmas presents here, there and everywhere but did manage to fit in a visit to Santa - the boys were so excited and I can't quite believe that Lewis, who is eleven, still believes in him! Think he is having doubts though as he's asking alot of questions about him and when Santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas, he reeled off a list of the presents which are hidden in my wardrobe - very suspicious!!!!

You'll be relieved to hear that I have no Christmas cards to show today! Instead, thought I would show you the gift bags I made a friend and the boys' Teachers. I only had the brown ones so just decorated them with some paper, etc. I've been dying to use this High Hopes stamp since I got it and just couldn't pass up on the chance!

Stamps: High Hopes

Colouring: Promarker

Papers: Cricut

Extras: Glamour Dust, Cricut Machine, Papermania, SU Scallop Edge Punch

Going to put my feet up for half an hour and grab myself a nice glass of wine and try to unwind. Hope you're all having a good weekend.

Ooooh Jo I love these bags, I need to make a bag for my niece to put her Weight Watchers biscuits in .... yeah thrilling I know but its better than falling off the wagon ... Christmas is gonna be hard enough as it is. Had some of those image sent to me in a RAK, might have to use one to make a top thingymajiggy for my bag. Thanks for the idea. Glad you got ur tooth sorted and hopefully you'll be feeling better soon! hugs Jillix

Sorry to hear you've got toothache again. Nothing worse, mine has just settled down after 2 weeks! Why does it always seem worse at the weekend when its a struggle to get to see a dentist? Hope the antibiotics kick in soon.

Gorgeous bags Jo, love the stamp, another one to go on my wish list!

Fantastic gift bags they're gorgeous. Hope the anti-botics sort the abcess out soon.

Oh, arent I the lucky one... the blue bag is my Christmas present from Jo, and it even better in real life than in the photo... I must confess that Sam caught me shaking it, but he promissed not to tell... hehe.
I do hope these new antibiotics kill that abcess, and you will be pain free by Christmas

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

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.

Small Reindeer Bauble

I've been busy making a mess all weekend trying out different types of Christmas cards and other projects so thought I would share a quick project.

This bauble is smaller than the ones I made a little while ago - it will fit on a Christmas Tree whereas the other ones were for room decorations.
Hoping to have a few more projects to share with you very soon.
