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

Bah humbug!

Christmas is on it's way again and it's time to make endless lists. I was mooching around Tesco yesterday and found some hardbacked notepads for 42p each. They were at the end of one of the aisles in those red boxes and there were only three left so i grabbed them and transformed them into these.
Perfect for all those lists.The image and sentiment are by Elzybells. The patterned paper is from the DCWV stack number 6 and is a border pattern which saves using more than one piece.
  A close up of the image, sparkled up with a bit of stickles.

On the back page i made a pocket from matching card for receipts. I'll be back in Tesco tomorrow hoping that there'll be some more. I'll give these to my mum and 2 sisters.
 Off to the kitchen now where i belong, lol. Beef and tomato casserole with olives and basil tonight, (small portion of course) with a bit of pasta on the side.
