Be Good

Every Christmas we buy Grace a new ornament for her tree, it has become a little tradition which we love, I love choosing a new tree ornament every year for her. I'm so early this year but when I saw this little robin I just couldn't resist it. I found this site called Designs on Pine via  Pinterest. I decorated a box with this fab stamp from a Waltzingmouse set called.Around Christmas time, which is great for tags and things too.

Felt Flower

We are going to wedding in 2 weeks times and I was looking for a brooch to wear with the Bolero that  I bought, could I find one? No way, so the way to go was make my own, I used the tattered florals die by  Tim.

Waltzingmouse challenge 70

Waltzingmouse does some fab stamps and I just got the latest set just yesterday and couldn't wait to have a play, I used the sketch from the challenge blog for this card.


My granddaughter Grace loves dressing up for Halloween, they decorate the house and go trick or treating, Grace lives in a street where lots of the neighbours love Halloween too, and dress up their  house some of them are quite scary. I found this set of printables on Pinterest and Grace made a banner too.You can find the free printable Here

LOTV challenge 116

I haven't made a challenge card for ages, but as I'm stuck in Christmas mode at the moment thought I would have a go at the challenge over on the LOTV challenge blog,the theme which is Warm and Cosy, and the little chap and his doggie certainly look warm and cosy to me.

Inspired by Kath

This card was inspired by the very special and very talented Kath, I love Kath's cards and can recognise one straight away even if its only a sneaky peek. Very Tim Holtz using the die Winter Wonder didn't have the picket fence die so used the houses. I know Kath won't mind me CASEing her design. so hop on over and check her blog out , she updates it every day, with a little help from her Buddy.

LOTV Christmas Cards

A couple of LOTV Christmas cards I made last week, with some of that ribbon from Costco. I do love easel cards, but worry that the people I send them too, don't know how to display them.

I'm trying to blog a little more often than I have been doing lately, I always take photos of my cards but don't always post them on my blog so I'm trying to post more often. I have so much on the go, knitting, I've just started to knit an aran cardi for Brian, can't remember the last time I knitted anything for him, and if he doesn't wear it, it will be the last. Sewing, I have a BOM patchwork block of the Month to make haven't done September's yet. We have a family wedding soon, and need to make a wedding card, also I'm spending too much time sitting down so need to move more, all that weight I lost is starting to creep back on, and the dress I bought for the wedding will be too tight. I spend too much time surfing the web, just wish that burnt some calories, and the trouble is you can snack at the same time. all my hobbies seem to involve sitting down.

Inspired by Pinterest

I tried to resist but there is so much inspiration here and such talent on Pinterest and if you haven't tried it out yet you can click on the link on my side bar, just be warned it is addictive.I loved this snowman and as I already had this Sissix die, I just had to make it. Here is my version. the original is Here

Birthday tag

I'm such a bad blogger so thought I would show you the gift tag I made to add to my friend Sarah's 40th birthday present, which was a large box of  Hotel Chocolat  choccies, the reasoning behind the choccies was that we weren't sure whether we could go or not, and we would have then eaten them ourselves, well we did go and it was worth the sacrifice to see Sarah.
I did make a beautiful card too, but alas forgot to take a photo of it before rushing off to pop it in the post.

Autumn Wreath

I decorated the wreath which lives in my garden all year round, with Autumn leaves and a hydranga flower. I think it looks so pretty but it seems a little out of place with the beautiful weather we have been having lately, but it is a little cloudy here today, so I think this might be the last of it. Then who know's they are predicting a harsh winter with snow before the end of October.

Inspired by.....

I was inspired by the christmas cards in the November issue of Cardmaking and papercraft mag, as I just bought the spellbinder die Holly Motif and I also had the Poinsettia die, and wasn't sure how to make the best use of them, love how they look a bit like snowflakes.
