Getting ready for christmas & get well

Christmas is nearly here.........
So much for waiting for christmas.......I am rubbish at buying presents for lucky then letting her have them oh well.....

100% cute!

The guilty look....

Its that time of year again where everyone starts rushing around the shops to buy presents for eachother. Yep christmas is on its way. We have already had snow here and im sure we will get more. It's also the time of year where most people will be full of colds and bugs so instead of an x mas card i have a made a get well card. Thats not to say that I haven't been making christmas cards too..... ;-)

Sympathy card

Hi here is a card I made using a unity stamp butterfly stamp. The backing paper is actually embossed with embossing powder then a light pink stamp rubbed over the top to give a 3D image. The sympathy message was stamped and I cut out the letters individually. I then added white stitching and a organza bow and a prima flower at the top.

Thanks for stopping by x

I am loving the polka doodles cd roms they are amazing. My camera didn't take the best pictures this time im not sure what happened lol. I really enjoyed this challenge and had so much fun making this card.

This is the brand new cricut imagine machine which I really really want ;-)
not only does it cut but also prints your cartridge images too. You can even pick different colours and patterns. I know this has just been released in the USA but hopefully it will be in the UK soon......

Right time to get saving i think........

Forever friends card challenge

a better close up

So here is my card for the current forever friends card challenge. 
The challenge was to use pink,green and sande.
I really enjoyed taking part in this challenge as I am going through a big forever friends addiction at the moment :-)

A little love...

Another card made with the cricut, I wanted to make a really simple congratulations card so this was the end result :-). It did not take long at all to make as its a very simple card.

I love you.....have a great day!!!

How sweet are the forever friends stamps? I think there one of the most loved bears and i can't get enough of them.
I made this card using a forever friends stamp. I am actually in the process of making more forever friends cards I think most people love these cute bears and they seem to be everywhere. I have actually had this stamp a while but just not used it for a long time so it was time to dig it out of my craft stash and have a play.

I made this card on my cricut using the wild card cart which I love! The dragon is a digital stamp from dustin pike and I coloured the image using my pro markers. I am addicted to my digi stamps now and pro markers. The best thing about digi stamps is that you can make them smaller or larger and print as many off as you need.

Animal crackers

I love these cute Kanban stamps, they really cheer up any piece of card. So I went and made this jungle card too!

I think I am going to invest in some more Kanban stamps I love them!

And I have been using them ever since I bought them making loads of animal cards which is a good thing! You can never go wrong with a cute animal stamp.

sweet & simple

So here is a sweet & simple card. I think that not every card you make has to be really detailed and busy, sometimes its the more simple cards that look nice. Plus i often get days when i just can't make anything. I sit at my craft desk just staring at all the different stamps,papers and feel really stuck and often overwhelmed. Saying that i do also get days where i cant stop crafting and cutting out all the little details :-)

Also if its raining and really miserable outside then i find that i can sit down at my craft desk and away i go!

At the end of the day......

This is lucky our lovely dog. She is mental and has such a huge personality. This photo was taken at the end of the day where she was so tired. I think she spent most of the day chasing her tail and playing in the garden :-)

She is such a sweetheart and makes my life much more enjoyable x
