A nice reasonably quick card just to slot in between the Christmas ones, people should not be allowed Birthdays in December (its soooo unfair) Ops beginning to sound like Kevin.....
The design is a card made a while back with Kim Fee im not sure what its called but its very clever and one of my favorites. It has lots of layers folds and cuts. I have tried to photograph it so you can see how it all fits together.

Can I have a card with a racing car on it! Oh no I thought! Oh well here we go again, what can I come with this time. I found an image on the computer and enlarged it then cut the paper shapes out to make my puzzle. Then just assembled it glued it in place and added a winning flag and a peel off.

I love this little Penny black mouse. I bought him last Xmas but never got round to stamping him, so I was delighted to open my Xmas box of stamps to see him sitting there still waiting to be stamped and it was a joy to colour. I just used watercolours pencils on a red mount cut with the Nestabilities and put on some Doodlebug paper also from last year.
A class with Ann Hide on chalking with my favorite Xmas release Sarah Kay stamp. What a lovely relaxed class thoroughly enjoyed by all. Cuttlebug snowflake background, stamped image coloured with chalks and decoupaged.

Sorry about the picture, but it does say let it snow. A quick and easy card with Cuttlebug embossing folder then chalked and stickled ( Well of course) with a Sissix swirl and your not the boss of me Cuttlebug Alphabet for the words.
My new personal impressions stamp, stamped embossed and matted from an idea seen at the Glitter pot think the card was by Kay Webb

I stamped and water coloured it then matted on to a green layer using Nestabilities Scallop attached it on a square of swiss dots (cuttlebug embossing folder). Then finished with a rub on and how could I not add a few stickles.

Through the window, the window was cut out with a Sizzix die cutting shape, the curtain pattern was drawn free hand by the talented Jane Gill and the rest was just decorated and coloured by me. I cant wait to do this with a Christmas scene inside.

The card we made on a class at Crafts u love with Kim and the peel off bit was insired ny Helens work. Thanks to two great tutors.
I bumped into this geourgeous card when I popped into the Glitter pot last October and I simply fell in love with it and it has taken me this long to get round to making it. But it was well worth it.

A fun day had by allot of familiar faces at the Glitter Pot, especially Lesley and Jan, Oh and not forgetting Beryl it is always nice to see you.
Well what can I say the wonderfully talented Jane Gill has designed her own collection of stamps this year and all I can say is about time too. There are four sets in the Woodware range and I love them all. The below is just one set with Stockings, Hats and mittens and the others include funky trees and snowmen.

Oh no I hear you say not Christmas. How many crafter's do I hear say ( NEXT YEAR I AM GOING TO DO MY CHRISTMAS CARDS EARLIER AND DO WE?) Well this year I have made a start, my first card with the help of my friend Junie Moon. This was my first attempt at Tripple thick embossing and I was surprised how easy it was, and very pleased with the finished result.

What a fab day crafting and I spent no money...........
Sandie came over and made some gorgeous cards and If your lucky you may be able to see them on her facebook. I just finished of a few bits in my unfinished bits box which is growing by the day! I then packed my craft bag( and forgot most of it) and off to Junie moons who is soooo kind and gave me the bits I forgot, and a lovely dinner too.
Here is a similar card to the one I made for Sandie on her engagement to Steve last month. A Kay Carley template combined with the scroll cuttlebug embossing folder.
My first ever Magnolia card, I did not like these when they first came out but they are growing on me....... I have also been working on a Magnolias with shrink plastic but its not quite finished yet..
