Christmas Gift Box

Last Post for a few days - computer went on strike during my posting of the Star book, seems ok now so I'm posting quickly as visitors are now here - well part one visitors!! :-)

Made this box for my friends Christmas Present, can't say whats going in there though Santa will get cross!! I know I hear you all shouting not the same stamp set again - I will move on I promise. :-()

Stamp Set Winter Post, Scandinavion Season, Punches Three a (level one Hostess Set) and Standard Wheel Scandinavion on the sides - if you look carefully you can just see on the side view. Dazzling Glitter was added for the snow; Ink Bordering Blue; Card Bordering Blue and Naturals Ivory.

Christmas Star

Phew another post; here is a Starbook I made recently for a Christmas Decoration, I love making Mini Books and usually they contain pictures of my Grandson - he is sooooo cute; well I would say that wouldn't I!! Anyway I thought I would make this as a Christmas Decoration which I can get out each year. I have used retired papers from the I wish Simply Scrapping Set (needed to use up the bits) and yes my favourite stamp set Winter Post, also Tree Trimmings Set and Dazzling Diamonds glitter - photos could be better sorry; sun was shinning (showing all the dust) so I quickly grabbed camera to make use of the light as it has been so gloomy for taking photos lately. Will try and load them in order for you! If you click on photo's you will get bigger picture.

Happiness is an ATC

Here is an ATC I made after the Birthday card using all the bits I had made and I used the New Butterfly punch too; I love this and it will be so useful - is anyone else into ATC's would love to hear from you I am totally addicted!! lol:-)

Receipe Challenge on SWU - Birthday Card

Have just made this card for my friends Birthday she and her husband now live in Ireland and are coming to vist today so only quick post. I will have a house full until Monday as my friend who recently lost her husband is also coming over along with her daughter and new husband they got married 6 weeks before her dad died, which was why we were all in such a state of shock. They are bringing their Wedding Album for us to see - have stocked up on tissues it will be very emotional.

I used 2 DSP from Tea and Crumpets on the main panel I distressed the edges with the tool from the cutter kit, also the strip of white card accross centre; punched flowers from the second paper; Stamped the Florish from Season of Joy on main panel and also inside the card.

I have a few other things to post that I have made recently may only be pictures with details as I'm rushing to get these posted before the mad house begins!! Have nice weekend.

Back to Crafting

Well I'm back into crafting again after what has been a really horrible time, thank you to those who left comments I do appreciate it. My Mojo up and went away; I thought for good but last week I managed to settle in my craft room long enough to make this card, after not crafting for almost a month I was certainly out of practice and threw lots of attempts in the bin!!!! (lol); eventually coming up with this card, which I am really pleased with and using my all time favourite stamp set Winter Post; I just love it :-) . I also used the fabulous new DSPaper Bella Bleu - yes I managed to cut into it but have also stroked it a lot!!!!!! and the New Eyelet Border Punch which is so lovely. Hope you like it.
After I had made the card I went over and checked out some challenge blogs and have entered this card in the Tanda Challenge "Winter Sport".
