Christmas in the sun!

Good afternoon one and all!

What a beautiful sunny day today!  I am currently at my mum's place sitting on the balcony in the sun!  My nephew is staying with mum all week to give my sister a break during the holidays!  I am hoping to get some time with them so we can go to the coast one day, but will see how the week goes! 

Anyway I decided to do a Christmas card even though its sunny outside!  I have used one of the new Christmas images from Pollycraft which you can get here.  Here is my card:

This is another card which was so much better in my head than the way it has turned out.  I am not sure why this is happening.  I think I have used too many snowflakes on this, but hey its done now!  I used some white flower soft for the snow and the hat which looks quite effective.  I have also used a new snowflake embossing folder for the background and my new Die-namics Snowflakes Die which I bought from Dies to Die For

Anyway, I am going to sign off now as the sun is hot and this laptop is burning on my lap!! 

Enjoy the rest of your day.

    We have another challenge over at Fab n Funky this week.  This week the challenge is:

    "Clash of the Colours"
    We are sponsored his week by Bonibleaux Designs who have some fabulous funny images!

    I used Henry Hero on my card and here it is

     I really struggled with this challenge!  I just didn't know what colours to put together!  I thought that orange and red clashed quite well, I wouldn't normally put these together!  Anyway I hope you like it!  I used MME paper pack which I bought from Quixotic Paperie. I wanted to use stars as my embellishments but I haven't got a star punch or die!!  Buttons had to do!

    I found some time to do some crafting the weekend which was nice.  I have done a card today for the Pixie Dust Studio challengeThey have a sketch challenge this week which is great, I love sketches!

    Here is my card:

     Sorry the photos aren't great, I was losing light when I took them.  I used January Pixie which I thought you could use for a winter birthday card or a Christmas card as I have done. The papers are MME Dear Santa paper stack.  I used my new flower and leaf trio die from Die-namics which I got from Dies to Die For.  I used a lot of glitter and glitter jewels on this card!

    Well that's it from me for now, I hope you have a good Monday.

    I decided to do another summer card today, here it is:

    It hasn't really come out the way I had intended and not sure it works, what do you think?
    I used Sonny - Life's a Beach from Pollycraft.  The paper is Echo Park - Splash which I bought from Quixotic Paperie, I just love the colours. Not sure if you can see it but I added some sand by her feet, this is in fact flower soft in "sand" which I bought last week!  The gorgeous ribbons are from Ladybug Crafts Ink, as is the sentiment stamp.

    Its another Thursday which means another challenge at Moving Along With The Times.

     They have some fabulous images, do go and check them out here. They also have a new release today which is very exciting!

    So here is my card:

The sentiment is from Kraftin Kimme.  I used lots of glitter in the bath which you can't see very well from the picture!  I also used some dew drop gems as bubbles and had them dripping over the bath. The punch I used is from Martha Stewart.

    Hi Everyone!

    Well this is very exciting for me!  I am coming up to my one year blogaversary, I cannot believe it has been a year already!  And I would like to thank all my wonderful followers and friends for all their support and help by offering some blog candy. 

    I never would have thought a year ago that having a blog would taken over my life so much!  My crafting has improved 100% due to the inspiration from all of the wonderful, talented people in blog land!  I am now on three design teams which is so much fun!  And more importantly I have made some wonderful friends, some I have met and some I will be meeting very soon and I can't wait!  

    So thank you to all of you!  

    To win the candy you just need to be a follower and leave a comment for me.  The candy will close on 3 August and I will publish the winner on 4 August (the date of my first ever post!)  I am also hoping I can get to 100 followers by then as well, just 3 more to go!  

    Lots of love and hugs

    Another Christmas Card and some Photos!

    Good Morning Everyone

    I hope you are having a great weekend.  I had a day out with my mum on Friday and we visited a couple of craft shops - The Glitter Pot first and then on the way back we went to the Craft Barn, a spot of lunch first though in a lovely little tea room nearby!  Stocked up on essential craft supplies of course!  My sister and nephew were also visiting this weekend so it is fun to see them.  

    I made another Christmas card yesterday, that is 3 in total so far this year!  I used the gorgeous image "Letters to Santa" from Elizabeth Bell which you can get here

    I used some of my new Bo Bunny papers from the Winter Joy collection, love the colour combination of these so may need to buy some more! I added some Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels for the snow and some Glamour Dust for the snowflakes and the edges of her coat and hat.  It is lovely and sparkly in real life! 

    I hope you like it.

    Also I thought I would show you a couple of photos from my holiday (which seems like a very long time ago now :-().

    It was very hot!

    That's it from me today, have a lovely day.
