What a frustrating week....we lost our internet as you know then it came back then went again...hopefully we've had 1 day where its stayed on so fingers crossed.
I'm busy trying to finish all my Christmas cards but I have had commissions for a tote bag and more of my little mars snowmen so at least I've been busy while off line...
This is one of my quickie Christmas cards it's a pre-coloured image by Sylvia Zet from the 'let it snow' range....just added a little bit of glitter to the image a Memory box fence and Marianne tree's....
I will catch up on all your blogs as soon as I can.....its just nice to be back...
Have a great weekend

We have no Internet connection at the moment so cannot blog....we could be off for another 3 days....we had a problem with our phone line which BT fixed but somehow they managed to disconnect our Internet....just popped over to my daughters to use the net but I will be back hopefully later in the week blogging.

Sorry for the poor photograph but it was taken on a dark day...
This is a card that I made for one of our ladies in club for her birthday, the shoe stamp is by Anna Marie designs....
I stamped the shoe then masked it, stamped the script over the top then paper pieced some of the flowers also stamping extra to pop on the Marianne swirl..
Backing papers are from LOTV petal fresh pad and the lace border is from Cheery Lynn....to finish off the flowers I just popped a pearl in the centre. ..sentiment is from Stampin Up.

Its been just over a week since my last post but we've been away with friends on the Isle of Wight for a week on pre-Christmas break which was fabulous.
My Christmas cards this year are going to be very quick and easy and also like a lot of people I am cutting down on hand crafted cards purely because of the postal charges..
I've made this card using paper from my stash...dotty Embossing folder and Memory Box Alphabet letters and for the 'O' I've used one of baubles from the Stampin Up 'Christmas Collectables' set and SU border punch.
I will get around to your blogs to see what you've been up to but I'm afraid the washing and ironing has to come first..lOl..lOl...

Excuse the awful photo it was taken very quickly on my iPad...
I was asked to make a black and white 60th Birthday card and this is what I came up with.
I've used one of the Kanban pryamage images and added a little bit of bling and sparkle which doesn't show up....the backing papers I got from a local craft shop, lace from my stash, Marianne Swirl die, and the sparkly brads are from Artoz ...
We are on babysitting duties as from lunchtime today...so no crafting today..
Hope you all have great weekend

Its been a few days since I posted but I was busy getting things ready for my craft fair which I did yesterday. I did really well and also came on with commissions orders which is lovely, so I am going to be busy this week.
I'm must also start thinking about Christmas now so this morning I have all the fruit for my Christmas cakes soaking in Brandy.
A quick Christmas card to show you....The image and backing papers on this card are from a Making Cards magazine...I 3D the image, added a few dies, the Memory Box elegant scroll, Spellbinders poinsettia dies and Memory Box Star...the backing papers are from the magazine and the sentiment is from Stampin Up 'Greetings of the Season' set....

Just wanted to show you my Christmas card using the 'Goose' from the Wetlands set, it made a really quick and simple card.
Just added a little bit of colour and glitter to my image...the backing paper was from a pad I won from Brenda over at Floral Fantasies, I've used a Sizzix snow embossing folder, the little Holly brads were also amongst my win from Brenda.. sentiment is from the Wetlands set...
Entering.. my card into the Vintage Stamping challenge
