Trees of the season

A couple of cards I made using this stamp set by Hero Arts, which I found in a sale at The Glitter Pot. The weather here is cold and miserable the snow now is thawing and it wet and slushy, don't know about you but I hate the snow.

Brian and I hardly ever go to the cinema, as Brian usually falls asleep, but when Les Mis came out we had to go and see it. We had seen the musical at the theatre a few years ago and simply loved the music and such a wonderful story. Well we were blown ago, it was everything we expected and more, we have been singing the songs ever since we went last week, and guess what Brian stayed awake. I just love Hugh Jackman ever since I saw him at the theatre in Oklahoma.

Because I Care.

Here's a couple of cards I made using this fabulous Stamp Because I Care, from Stampin Up, which is a set that I got as a reward from my lovely Stampin Up demonstrator Michelle. I used some papers from my stash.

We have been helping our Daughter Nicola to decorate this weekend. She bought a new house last summer and has finally got to put her special mark on it, a new house is like a blank canvas, and sometimes all it takes is a bit of wallpaper and paint, Brian wallpapered one wall in her bedroom, it now looks like a boutique hotel room, very chic. He also papered Grace's room which is so pretty, and a very quirky paper in her downstairs loo, which is lots of vintage photos all over it, looks like photos of my mum and dad and me in the fifties. Very funny.
Hoping for a rest tomorrow, but tons of ironing to do, footy on in the afternoon, so maybe I can do some crafting then.

Crazy Christmas

I know this sounds a little bit crazy and You would think that I had had enough of making Christmas Card, but when I saw that The Glitter Pot had a sale on and I saw these papers by my Mind's Eye, All is Bright, I just had to have them and when they came yesterday I made a couple of cards. I just love the little Birdie in the hat.
Sorry about the shadows in the photos it is such a beautiful sunshiny day today, which probably means that it will freeze tonight.

We gave Grace a Emma Bridgewater personalised mug, which she adored, we also bought her a watch, as she is learning to tell the time.

Brian bought me an ipad mini, which I got just after Christmas as everywhere was old out. And I love it. I bought him a new Techno marine watch. Brian has a thing for watches and he has lots.

I really must get back into crafting but it seems that Mr Mojo has taken an extended Christmas break.
