Big Failure!

Hello.  

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying some much needed rest.

You know how normally I like to clear out all my folders of cards to share so I can start the new year with a clean sheet....well, this really hasn't happened this year.  I've just counted them and there are over 100 cards still to share in the next 3 days..... not happening eh?!

Never mind, I'll start today with quite possibly my favourite Christmas card - it's the one I made for Cass. She is a big fan of the Tomte so there was really no other theme for a card....

Christmas At Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas At Sweet Stampin'

As always it's Anything Christmas Goes with the optional theme of critters.

This is the very last time I'll write these words as I've decided that after 7 years that it's time to step down from Christmas at Sweet Stampin.  I've been there since the beginning with Abi and Fi so it was a big decision and I'll miss it.

I've used a few Vera Lane images for my card.

What's For Lunch

Hello.

Sharing a work birthday card today.  Some of the folk at work had a wee salad club going in the summer where they would each take a turn in making a salad so this was just a wee bit of fun!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.

This week our theme is 

Christmas 

This is a 2 week challenge as we're all gearing up for the big day.  Well some of us are, I haven't even started shopping yet.  I tried a wee expirement with this card.  I used the baubles from the Vera Lane Studio Season's Greetings set and tried to make them look like they were coming from the Merry Christmas.  I'm really quite pleased with it.

One Chapter or Two?


Hello.

Today's card is a work card I made recently for a fellow book lover.  In fact, one of my friends asked me why I'd made a card for myself.... 

All of these statements I've used to embellish the card are true facts!

Love Em or Hate Em?

Hello.

Last month I was lucky enough to win the challenge on the Copic Facebook group and as part of the prize I was invited to create a couple of cards for the new challenge which started yesterday.

I've used some stamps I bought at the SEC in October for the first one.  Love this HobbyArt set.  And yes, I also like sprouts!
