Stamp with Us Challenge - Christmas!

I have found myself another challenge over at Stamp with Us and the theme is Christmas, this is a card I made using Old Olive and Real Red cardstock and the new SU border punch, the ribbon and stamp is from my stash I think the stamp is one of those CD ones I have had it yonks and this is the first time it has been inked!!
The berries are lovely and sparkly as I have stickled them but it doesn't really show.
I also thought you may like to see Ryan's table he made at school, apparently last year but they wanted to keep it as a sample, isn't it cool he has finished it really well but wait till you see the top.......
How COOL is this it is the top of the table
I think this has been done with a laser if I remember rightly, not sure if he is familiar to you but it is Banksy a Graffitti artist from Bristol - he is the one that is never seen doing his art work but they just appear overnight for instance half way up a building !!
When he brought it home I did shed a tear as I was so chuffed it was a real proud mamma moment!
Hope you like!

Yoo Hoo! me again x

Hullo, Hullo,
Well didn't expect to be back so soon but I stumbled across a fantastic sketch over at Mojo Monday and thought it would make a great card for my Thank ewe stamp, of course I still haven't and don't think I ever will get over my addiction for Kraft cardstock so decided to use this as my base.
I am really liking the colour combo together red, black and Kraft I think it works really well.
Obviously being this time of year I will have lots of thank you cards to do so will definitely be using this sketch as it is not too fiddly!
I will also be entering this card for the Crafty Cardmakers blog as you have to use something that is your favourite and of course it is Kraft cardstock as mentioned earlier because it gives a nice rustic look.
Hope you like and please scroll down for my earlier post today.

Hi De Hi!

Hullo, Hullo,
Hope you all had a lovely christmas and Santa brought you all you wished for!!
We had a lovely Christmas and everyone seemed to be happy with Santa's pressies certainly no complaints as of yet - apart from me, I was mean't to get a delivery from Next on Christmas Eve which was a nice new tablecloth and runner for Christmas Day as of now I still haven't received it! Doh!
It didn't spoil our day of course but did niggle me a little., ok a lot!!!
The card above I made for my son's birthday and I have photographed it in my new photo tent which was a Crimbo prezzie from my crazy friend Tracy cheers mate I LOVE IT!!
I think she bought if for me as she is fed up of listening to me moaning about not getting a good photo of my cards, which leads me to think if I keep moaning about my car do you think she might give in and buy me one of those - NAH I think not but I could give it a go - hee hee!!
I hope to get some me time and make a couple of cards but must warn you they will still most probably be Christmassy!
OOps is that a crime I dunno I will let you decide, trouble is I still have lots of Crimbo stamps to use at least it will give me a headstart for next Christmas!
See you soon,
Toodle pop!

Last Minute Cards!

Hullo, Hullo,
How are you?
Manic, stressed, pulling your hair out ? or is that just me!
Only joking but I am getting a little panicky that I am not sorted for Christmas yet but then I leave everything to last minute like I normally do so I guess I just like the adrenalin rush - well at least that's what I am trying to convince myself!
I have had my swine flu jab, didn't hurt one bit and only had an achey arm for a couple of days so a result all round I think apart from my car breaking down in the car park afterwards, the alarms continually going off and missing my hair appointment!!!
Not a good day that!
I have my Christmas party at my local scrap club tomorrow and have to make some cards so as I have only just started making them, I thought I would keep them nice and simple so they will all probably look like these two above with maybe slight variations.
In all honesty I did think well it is a Scrapbooking club so would they not mind if they weren't hand made but apparently they make their cards so I didn't want to let the side down!
The card on the left with the little mouse and the scallop punched frame was inspired by Dawn if you get the time go check her blog out as she does some wonderful things and lots of videos on how to do them!
Well enough from me have fun whatever you may be doing!

Hullo, Hullo,

Well here goes 7 interesting facts about me .............. or should i say pointless

1. I am scared of the dark!!! you never know may be a bogie man in the shadows!

2. One christmas we were lucky enough to go to St. Lucia on holiday and I won the competition for downing half a lager through a straw in the quickest time, bagged myself a t shirt! Funnily enough my partner won the male contest for doing the same!

3. I was Radio Mercury Jingle winner, my claim to fame I sung on the local radio along with a little help from Mrs Wonka who wrote my lyrics!!! (sadly we didn't go on to bigger and better things :(

4. I used to do Gymnastics and trampolining until I was 16 and can be found doing the splits on a good night out - obviously when I was younger I used to warm up so wasn't a problem but after a few bevvies I think I am supple for some reason and suffer badly the next day!
5. I once went and saw Des O'Connor live - at the time he had a bad toe and had to stop in interval to have an injection so I also saw Des's toe!!!
He also had Jimmy Crankie and Ken Dodd and his Diddy men on his show (God I know how to live!!! lol

6. I love to have a good ole belly laugh but do have to be careful otherwise I wee!!

7. When I was a baby my tongue didn't poke out so it had to be clipped underneath, I think they may have gone a bit far as I can touch the tip of my nose!! (with my tongue not my finger - silly!)

I would like to pass this award on to

Mrs Wonka







Oops I can't count! no wonder it has taken me so long to post this lol!

Please accept my apologies for the very very bad photograph I forgot to take it earlier and this is the result tonight!!
I mean my photos are not too good at the best of times but this is the pits - I will change it tomorrow when we have some daylight! (PHOTO BEEN CHANGED NOW!!!)
I did love this sketch and am sure I have seen one somewhere else recently like this but unfortunately the brain is not remembering!!
I doubt if you can see but I have used some flower soft for the snow on the branch and i really like it although I could of used a little more think I was a bit stingy!!
Snowflakes everywhere and have finally got my mitts on the gorgeous Cuttlebug Snowflake die over at Craftsulove
I have used the sketch from Penny Black Saturday Challenge and in true Suzie style have left it till the last minute as there will be a new sketch tomorrow!
Think of me I have my Swine Flu jab tomorrow as I suffer from asthma, not looking forward to it as apparently have heard you have quite a severe arm ache and flu like symptoms after!!
What joy!!! not
