Just wishing everyone who knows me and visits my blog a Very Happy Christmas and Very Best Wishes for a happy, healthy and wealthy New Year 2011.
Take care everyone…
Well, we have been out in the snow for a walk to get necessities, just lovely, now sleeting – yuk!
They are all made from the template Jo Dumbleton’s site, clever girl she is, and done all in Stampin’ Up card using the bird punch – I have loved doing them but my fingers could do with a break…
Take care out there…
Well, we had a lovely crop with David and Brenda at West Moors yesterday, and with it being our Christmas crop we had extra raffles, bingo and instant prizes – such fun! They make it such a great crop to go to…
It was also my sister’s last crop with them before she moves to New Zealand after the New Year – very sad and she and I did shed quite a few tears. Most of the group made a page for her to put in a scrapbook David and Brenda organised which was just lovely and I am so grateful to everyone for sharing that with Helen, she was so touched by it all…
This is Helen with David – Brenda didn’t want her photo taken! – they are such a lovely couple (www.craftobsessions.com) if you want to take a look at their site…
and with our great friends Ellen and Jo – we always have such a good time, little bit of scrapbooking with a lot of chat.
We will all miss you Helen and know you will be back in May but the crop won’t be the same without you…
Take care everyone…
I have been very busy doing all my cards and table presents over the last ten days or so, nothing I can post or would spoil the surprises!
I love Stampin’ Up colour coach but used my own version this time with Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede and Old Olive, and threw in Chocolate Chip and Marina Mist too – all very different from the red and green norm… This Contempo Christmas stamp set has been a real fave for my cards this year, as well as theTree Trimmings set I used a lot last year.
Right, back to my classmate gifts, truffles to make etc – busy, busy, busy… Take care out there!
Well, I have managed to do a few birdhouses in an hour so thought I would post a few. If you would like the stats for these, go to the lovely Jo Dumbleton’s blog (StampinNStuff on my side bar – in October ’10) as this is from her tutorial, measurements etc – she has made some absolute beauties over the last few months and is such a clever and talented crafter.
I am making these for presents for the girls I work with in my class, they will be filled with something like chocolates too!
Take care out there!
I had to add just a few photos from early this morning, just looks magical out there in the garden and very quiet on the roads. May even persuade my hubby to go for a walk and take more photos!
But now time to have fun and make some cards. Hope you all have a lovely day out there safe and sound in the snow – take care…
