Happy Christmas everyone

Saturday, 25 December 2010

A very Merry Christmas to you all. I hope you all have a great day with your families and Santa is good to you. I'm spending Christmas with my lovely hubby and 2 boys. Boxing Day with my sister-in-law and her family. Then Monday I have all my family coming over. It's going to be a busy one.

I made this card for my husband, he loves, loves, loves skiing. Tried to match what he wears as closely as possible and yes, he really does have a hat with woolly plaits. We are off skiing in January (away for my birthday again), how fantastic.

Card for Roger
Materials used - Blue cardstock, Cricut plus Everyday Paper Dolls, Assorted card and paper, Sizzix rub-on faces, Papermania snowflake stamp, White embossing powder, Versamagic black chalk ink, Alphabet stamps, Wool, Stickles and Felt.

Cuttlebug Spot - Happy New Year

Tuesday, 14 December 2010

Is it really, nearly 2011 and how the year has flown. This week over at the Cuttlebug Spot, we could make any New Year project. We always have fireworks at New Years and they have to be the loudest and biggest ones we can find. One year my hubby managed to blow a hole in the bottom of a bucket because the firework looked the same, whichever way up you looked at it. Guess what, we chose the wrong end!!

The Cuttlebug Spot will be taking a break until the New Year, when we will be back with new projects and challenges. Have a great Christmas and a happy New Year.

Cuttlebug Spot - Christmas Card

Tuesday, 7 December 2010

Not much has happened here, just been trying to get my Christmas cards done. And talking of Christmas it's coming up really fast. Still got loads of shopping and wrapping to do. I don't seem to be so organised this year. Anyway, Nilda's challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot was to create a Christmas card using your favourite embossing technique. I don't have a particular favourite, but I do love to emboss straight onto the card blank, which I've done here. Aren't these reindeer so cute. Come on over and join in, you could win a $20 Custom Crops voucher.
