A few Chrissie cards before it's too late

Hi all hope you are all braving this cold weather and horrible white stuff! Anyway thought I had better post a few chrissie cards on my blog. The stamp used on the first two cards was from  the Jane Gill Woodware set.

This is such fun to make these cards adding all sorts of bling and buttons, the paper strip used was craftwork cards, thanks for the idea Clarissa. 
Another one using the same stamp, made for a colleague at work. 
And the last I think is my favorite although the picture does not do it any justice at all. Penny Black stamp, sorry can not remember who the papers are from. Another idea stolen from the extremely clever Debby please do pop over and look at her blog it is stunning.
Wrap up warm and keep away from all those horrid germs out there. Bye for now xx

Christmas Wreath

A day full of fun and laughter at the Glitter Pot with Jane Gill and a bunch of lovely ladies and friends..... Oh and not forgetting the food, Yum Yum!

This is me being silly just for a change........................ Seriously! this is the lovely wreath we made, they were all different and what a fun time we had making them, with so many bits of card, paper and all sorts of other bits n bobs.

                                    I do hope you like my Christmassy top with the sparkly Santa.

                                      This is a picture of the lovely ladies as mentioned above.

Here is a better picture without the silly face! I can feel I will be making a lot more of these for this year if I have time or if not for next year.
At least the weather has turned a bit warmer but perhaps I should keep my gob shut as we have been forcast more snow for later this week. Oh nooooo not again, I do hate the thought of driving in it or should I say slip sliding . Take care and see you soon, happy crafting. Oh and I hope you are all nearly finished with your Christmas cards as it is not long before the last post now.

Anything but Christmas at the moment.....

I don't know! why do people want Birthday cards when they know you are up to your eyes in Christmas cards. Between battling the snow and ice I collected the car from work yesterday and it has been there since Tuesday and I have been using good ol British Rail and they have done me proud. There was only one day there were no trains. Lots of thick ice now, but braving the roads as it is just too cold to stand on the platform and wait for a train. I think we are all fed up with the snow except my Mum and Dad who are in sunny Florida at present (ok for some) are they in for a shock when they get back.
A few cards I have made these previously but in different colours and slightly different styles.
Reliable Woodware punches for a quick card with the odd Quickutz pair of shoes and the paper is Kaisercraft.

Quickutz Roxy alphabet, Karen Neuburger papers with  Woodware flower punches and a few gems.
Thanks for looking, take care, keep warm and keep crafting x
