Holiday Blessings!

Oh my goodness..."christmas" is just sneeking right up on me...faster than ever!!!!! I absolutely loved this Whiff of Joy stamp when it was released but haven't had the chance to make many cards with my shame!!

I still have a few cards left to finish so I'd best be getting on with it!! bx

Gosh it's been a busy few days for me!! I haven't been near the craft "studio" and haven't had much pc time either! And I still need another couple of christmas I better get to it!!

I'm going to a couple of school plays this week...I just LOVE watching the kids on stage...this is what makes it "feel" christmassy for me!!

The hubster is watching Peter Kay's wind-up show...I just WISH you could hear the laughs of him.....!! bx

Hip, Hip Hooray!

Been creating some "guy" cards recently........I used 2 of the magnolia winter kit stamps and Basic Grey "offbeat" papers to create this card...I thought it turned out quite "funky" or should I say "hip"!!!

My gorgeous new Sugar Nellie stamps arrived this morning.....only 2 more weeks to wait until santa officially gives me them though....hmmmmm, maybe if I talk nicely to him....! bx

Giving and dreaming...

This little cutie from the Magnolia winter kit is sooo adorable...when colouring her I couldn't help but wonder what she might be thinking....I looked through my sentiments and found this line on a marriage sentiment stamp (that's the versatility of stamps for ya!!) and thought it was perfect for this time of year! I do love how this card turned out!! bx
