Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Forever Christmas.

Time to make a few more Christmas cards i think before we lose whats left of the precious daylight. I can remember struggling to match colours at 3 o'clock in the afternoon last november. Even a craft lamp didn't help much so this year i'm determined to get them all done early so i only need to make gift boxes and stocking fillers later on.
The image is a forever friends half price bargain from Hobbycraft last january coloured with promarkers. The sentiment stamp was another bargain papermania clear set.The papers are Papermania and the leaves are made with an X cut botanicals punch which also embosses.
A bit of stickles for the snow and we're done.
Were going to see little Michael later on today, we decided that as he already has lots of pressies, and daddy has one big pressie in the pram that we should get mummy a voucher to buy herself some new clothes.I think after all she's been through(22 stitches and a hernia) that this was the best idea.We thought the wedding in september would have to be postponed but Nina is healing well and i'ts going ahead as planned.
 Well, that's me for today, time to wake the sleeping beauty with a cup of tea.
  thanks for visiting.  Di. xx

  5. Hi Di

    Yet another stamp that we both own .. .. shame we don't live next door to each other - we would have only have spent half as much cash if we shared LOL!!!

    Mine hasn't been inked up yet .. .. I bought him in the sale after last Christmas.

    Great layout, beautiful colouring and gorgeous twinkly snow.

    Love Jules xx
