Xmas configuration box.

All last week I felt so rotten, It started with a sore throat , then the sore throat went and just as thought I was getting better, it turned into a dry tickly cough, then just as I thought I was getting better it turned into a cold. then just as I thought I was getting better it has now tuned into a combination of all three. What's next? I dread to think! Feeling very groggy this morning.
But yesterday was a feeling better sort of day and I made my Xmas Tim Holtz Configuration box, ever since Kath and I went to Tim's workshop way way back in February, I have wanted to make one, and here it is. I looked everywhere for a little Xmas tree to fit but couldn't find one so decided to make my own, from squares of Tim Holtz paper, then glue and lots of sprinkles later. I know it leans, but what the heck, don't all Xmas tree's lean. I'm quite pleased with it anyway.

Yes Babies as in Twins, some of you might remember that late last year my Brother-in-law and his wife Alison sadly lost a baby which was stillborn. I think sometimes these things happen for a reason, what reason I haven't figured out yet. But out of the sad something wonderful happened, Alison has just given birth to healthy twins and both really good weights Lucy 6lb.13oz and Scott 7lb. 5oz. I wish them all well, and can't wait to see them, but it might have to wait a while.
I made a card using some Websters Pages I already had, some  lace and ribbon, and pearls from my stash. sorry about the rubbish picture, it was getting a little dark, but I wanted to take a photo of it before it  I posted it.

Maybe the last of the Christmas cards

I decided enough was enough, and sort out the mess that was my craft room. I decided come the end of November all my Christmas stash was to be put away no more Christmas cards. Well the best laid plans and all that. Whilst I was sorting out I found some papers from last year, these snowflake acetate sheets was just crying out to be used and I couldn't resist just making two more cards. After all it isn't the end of November just yet.

Birthday Wishes

 We seem to have lots of Birthdays at this time of year, and it is a friend's Birthday this week with a Big Bash at the golf club, on Saturday. I made a card and a tag, the die cut is called snowflake but I don't think it can just be used as a snowflake, as you can see on my card, and a couple of Tim Holzt flowers.

Merry Christmas Banner

I hadn't done any crafting for over a week what with wedding's and Birthday's etc. Well I actually got to do some crafting yesterday and I didn't stop until it was finished. I wanted to make a Christmas  Banner to hang from my Mantel.
The papers and letters are from MME Lost and Found Christmas.

Of course it is much too early to put it up yet. but who cares I might just leave it there.

It's my turn today to be The Birthday Girl.

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while, last week was a busy one with no chance to craft, Hubby worked from home for a few days using MY craft room. On Friday we travelled to Manchester to attend our Niece's wedding. we managed to meet up with my little sister Mandi and her family too. Brian has a huge family and we have about 24 Niece's and Nephew's about 20 (lost count) on his side and Rebecca is the 4th wedding. It was so nice meeting up with everyone, and we had a fab time.

Hubby has taken the day off to help me celebrate my Birthday today. Not sure what we are doing today maybe Lunch out. Then we are going to our daughter Nicola's house for a Birthday Tea. I have had lots of nice smellie's from my son and my sister, think maybe they are trying to tell me something, and lots of beautiful cards. A Fabulous leather handbag and a charm for my Pandora bracelet,from Brian.which is filling up quite nicely now.
