Christmas Swirls

Good Afternoon

I have seen lots of Christmas cards whilst blog hopping in the last few weeks so I have decided to try and make at least one a week starting now and this is the first one.

The challenge at ASFOS this week is "Swirls" and I whilst looking through my box of Christmas papers I found this swirly paper. I have no idea what it is but I really like it so if anybody knows please could you let me know. This is the first time I have used this sweet stamp by Pink Gem Designs.

Allsorts Challenge ~ Only use 1

Good Morning

The challenge this week at Allsorts has been set by Emma and she has challenged us to use only 1 of anything you put on your card (i.e. 1 paper, 1 button, 1 flower, 1 ribbon etc). The prize this week which will be chosen by random.org is a Guest DT position for 2 weeks.

Here is my DT card

Image ~ Tilda in the Rain
Papers ~ DB Cherry Cobbler
Flower ~ Calico Crafts
Brad ~ Papermania pearl
Swirl ~ Not sure as a friend sent me some die cut swirls.
Sentiment ~ Craftwork Cards

I have used my new Martha Stewart punch on this card and I love it. It cuts through the card perfectly.

It is wet and windy here today so doubt we will be doing much this weekend.

Happy Birthday Jamie

Good Afternoon

It's Jamie's 5th Birthday today so we have had a busy morning. My mum came over at 8.00 this morning which was a lovely surprise for Jamie. She stayed for a couple of hours and not long after she had gone my cousin came with his little girl. Have just had a quick tidy up before Chris goes to get his mum.

Here's the card I made for Jamie. Think I might have mentioned before that Jamie really isn't interested in cards but he was quite impressed with this one as it has a tractor on it. He's tractor mad!

I decided to make a handbag shaped card and have covered a card blank with double sided MME paper. I have used the reverse of the paper for the inside of the card and the small scallop. The edges of the card have been inked with pink.

Card Blank ~ Tesco's
Paper ~ My Mind's Eye Pretty Please "Pink Floral"

Oh So Fruity!

Good Morning

It's going to be HOT again today. Chloe and Jamie are off school today as it's a teacher training day at both schools. Just a quick post as we are going out for the day and taking a picnic.

Over at the One Stop Craft Challenge it is "Oh So Fruity" and they want to see fruity colours. The colours in this paper remind me of strawberry, apple, lime and peach. I have used the same Penny Black image as my previous card as I think it is perfect for thank you cards. Looks like the little hedgie is popping up to say "Thank You".
