Shape or fold at As You Like It!

This weeks theme at As You Like It is your favourite shape or fold. I love shaped cards but I really love a crazy fold! Any fold - the crazier the better. They're always great fun to do in a cardmaking class ;-)

I made a quick card because I still have the lurgy and it doesn't seem to be shifting. Lots of people are in the same boat though :-(

Gosh, even the picture is blurred! I hope to be better soon!!

Winnie Winterland

It's week 4 at Make a Christmas Card Every Week and so far so good! I didn't stick to the theme this week - I wasn't in a chimney and rooftop mood!! So I made this one using the Polkadoodles Winnie Winterland CD ROM :-)

I'd forgotten the CD contained digis and had a nice surprise when I found this super cute image to colour. The CD also has lots of bits and bobs and embellies to cut out - the problem is knowing when to stop adding things!!!! I do so love a well embellished card ;-)

I'm off to tackle yet another pile of ironing - I'm beginning to wonder whether my neighbours are leaving their washing to iron. Surely a family of four cannot possibly produce this amount of ironing????? xxx

Oooh I really must stop buying digis!! It's becoming an addiction - yikes. This one from Polkadoodles is my new favourite :-) I think she's called serenity and I just love her little face.

I confess that I am not coping well with being poorly. It's making me grumpy and hungry - the diet is not going well. I thought having a cold was supposed to kill your appetite not turn you into a lunatic fridge raider????? xxx

Butterfly Winnie

I have been knee deep in ironing and cleaning today - yeuch! My new Polkadoodles stamp came yesterday so I made a super fast card with beautiful Butterfly Winnie.

I love a bit of pink ;-) xxx

So Lovely :-)

I have another card using the Lili of the Valley So Lovely stamp set. It's becoming my favourite set! And those papers - super yum. How I wish I'd bought more before they were discontinued. Sigh.

I have sooooo much ironing and it's everywhere!!!!! Really must get on that. Tomorrow ;-)   xxx

Buttons or Pearls at As You Like It

Over at As You Like It we have a cracking challenge for anyone whose button or pearl stash is voluminous! I have to confess that a long while ago I went mad and bought a gazillion buttons! So today, out of shame, I am using a button.

I've used one of the Lili Of The Valley stamps and papers I bought in the Christmas sale - so glad I bought them :-) I love an essential purchase.

I really ought to get on and use the buttons. The kids love nothing more than to empty the jar on the floor and mess with them but then they don't all go back in the jar and there's always that one button that ends up noisily whizzing round the inside of the vacuum. The joys of motherhood ;-)

So I will go now and make something with buttons  . . .   xxx

I've done more crafting this week than I have in months and I'm a happy camper :-) I have abother of the new LOTV fairies today. I also received happy post from LOTV - 3 new stamp sets and 2 new paper pads. Oooooooh - giddy pants much?

I love this new release  - they work beautifully with the LOTV papers.

Make a Christmas card every week for a year challenge.

I'm starting this challenge again. I failed miserably last year but am now filled with giddy determination. Or, it might just be the gin I drank??? Anyhoo, it's happening. I made a Christmas card.

I love this LOTV image - it's one of my favourites. I say that a lot, I know. And I love the Craftwork Cards papers. Combining all that yumminess can't be a bad thing can it?

I have a class to work on so I'd best get going. Sending giddy Christmas card making hugs xxx
