A Mini Candy for My Followers ..............


Hi everyone, tonigh'ts post is about a candy giveaway for my followers.  With working and having a family I don't always get the time to leave as many comments as I would like to so I have a little thank you candy for one of my followers.  

If you would like to enter into my candy giveaway please be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment on this post, that's it!

The draw will close at 5pm next Thursday 27th November.

Good luck and thanks for stopping by.

I Wanna Build a Snowman!


Hi everyone, I hope your week is going well. It's about this time of year that I always start to feel a bit over whelmed with all I still need to do to be ready for Christmas.  Do you feel like that or is it just me?   I always end being ready in the end but at the moment it feels like a daunting task ahead with cards still to make, presents still to buy, and a  Christmas dinner to organise along with loads of busy nights and weekends out.   I wish a fairy could just come along and wave her wand and it would all be done!  Failing that I will just have to take one day at a time and do what I can!

Anyway onto this jolly snowman that I brought when I went to the NEC recently.  I have decoupaged his scarf but I'm not sure you can see that from the photo. I used some frantage on my lamp post and snowflake for a little snowy sparkle and my favourite Xmas papers from Dovecraft oh and the Snowman stamp is a Woodware one. 

Thanks for stopping by.

A Card for a Runner ..............

Hi everyone and happy Monday to you.  I made this card for my Brother-In-Law a few weeks for his 40th Birthday.  He is a keen and very good marathon runner so I went on the hunt for a running image and found this great one at the Digi Stamp Boutique.   I have not made a man's card for ages so I enjoyed making this one. 

Thanks for stopping by.

A Trio of Christmas Tags ......


Hi everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.  I've had a busy day taking my Mum and Dad out for a few hours today and doing some baking with Grace this afternoon.

Firstly onto my tags, did I tell you I have a bit of thing for making tags at the moment!  I made these using some scraps of paper, the images are from the Moonbeam Meadow CD from Crafter's Companion and were just the right size to be made into tags!

Back to the baking, me and Grace had a practise at making some Christmas biscuits this afternoon. I didn't expect the recipe to make quite so many but we ended up with 3 plate fulls! I think we will need to deliver some to the Grandparents tomorrow!    Me and Grace did have lots of fun making these though!


I would like to enter my tags into the following challenges:


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

A Frozen Bag ..............

Hi everyone, sorry for my lack of blogging and returning your comments.  We were away for part of last week during the school holidays and when I came back my Dad was in hospital having a knee operation and my Nan also got admitted to hospital so last week was spent back and forth to the hospital the whole time! Dad is now home but Nan is still in hospital.   Stressful times for my family at the moment.  

Anyway enough of my troubles, I thought I would share a Frozen themed bag that I made for my Niece a while ago for her Birthday.  The bag is lined with star patterned fabric the same as the on the dress and the handle of the bag. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Time to dress up! ..............


Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a good Tuesday!   I made this card for my Mum in Law whose Birthday it was a couple of weeks ago.  I have used a decoupage image from a Papermania kit that I had.  These are great for making a quick card as I was running out of time the week I made this which is nothing out of the norm for me!  I would get so much more done if there were just a few more hours in each day! 

Thanks for stopping by.

Tom Boy for a Day ..................


Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a good weekend.  I have a layout to share with you today.  This layout is about Grace wearing a baseball cap to the side is the closest she comes to being  a Tom boy as given the chance Grace will choose to wear a dress or skirt any day as she loves all things girly!  I took these pictures last year and I have been wanting to scrap them for ages so I'm really pleased to have this page in my album.  

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Gold .........................


Hi everyone, gold is our theme for this week's Challenge over at Winter Wonderland this week so we want to see gold embellishments, gold pen, gold glitter etc!  I have used gold card, gold glitter and there is gold in the frantage that I used on the holly leaves.  It looks much more sparkly in real life but it's always difficult to get that to show in a photo!

We have 2 wonderful sponsors this week who are:


and 


The gorgeous image on my card is from Delicious Doodles and is called poinsettia corner
 I printed the image out twice so I could decoupage the poinsettia but I'm not sure you can see that from the photo.  I was very pleased with how this one turned out though.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a great weekend.
