James Bear ~ In the Snow

Good morning
Hope you are all well and ready for Christmas ... I still have a few presents to wrap ready to deliver to my uncle and his family this afternoon but other than that think i'm just about ready!  I'm always a bit last minute when it comes to Christmas so I said to Chris last night that next year i'm going to start early but he reminded me I have said that every year he's known me lol! 
Anyway moving onto my card which I made for my friend Lynsey and her family. 

* Card Recipe *
Sentiment ~ Craftwork Cards
Pearl Button ~ Stash
Snowflakes ~ MS & Kars punches
Dies ~ MS Cherish border & Spellbinder Floral Oval

That's all from me ... now off to make some bacon rolls and then finish the wrapping!

Pile of Presents!

Good evening
Hope you are all well.  Sorry I have been such a bad blogger (hope Santa doesn't put me on his naughty list lol!) but I have had a lot going on the last few weeks and with Christmas preparations this has left me with no time for crafting. 
However, I managed to find time last week to make a card for Lynsey and Marianne because we were meeting up with them, along with husbands and children, for lunch on Sunday.
This is the card I made for Marianne and Graham ... unfortunately my camera was out of charge so this photograph is courtesy of Marianne :-)

* Card Recipe *
Papers ~ Dovecraft 'Vintage Christmas'
Flowers ~ Prima poinsettias
Sentiment ~ Stash
Dies ~ Cheery Lynn Holly Corner
I am sure there must be lots of Christmas challenges around at the moment but to be honest I am just too tired to check.
That's all from me for now ... not sure when I will have another card to share because everything has gone into Christmas mode around here lol!
I will catch up with you all soon.

Warm Winter Wishes

Good evening

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend.  I guess quite a few of you have been putting your trees up this weekend.  It's a bit too early for me but I am feeling festive today because i've had a lovely day Christmas shopping with Chloe ... most of the presents are now bought so I can make a start on the wrapping this week. 

Before I make a start on the tea, thought I would quickly blog the card I made yesterday afternoon.  In fact I had coloured the image one night last week so it was just a matter of putting the card together which was made a whole lot easier because I followed the FAB sketch over at The Sugar Bowl. 

Sorry about the photo ... will try and take a better one in daylight .
