Crimbo Cards!!

Hullo, hullo,
I'm back with some fantastic Penny Black Mimi Christmas cards which I made on a class with the lovely Mrs Wonka last night, first up is this little cutie and I learnt how to make my image lovely and sparkly, unfortunately David Bailey was busy so I had to take my own pics but trust me this is a real sparkler!!!
I like all of them but this is my favourite, another card design I had never tried before and yet so "Simples"!!
Another angle for you isn't it cool may have to try and make some little scenes with this design!!
Last but not least Mimi decorating her tree, aren't they cute and look at all that Kraft paper well crumb cake (SU) isn't it devine I was in my element!!!
There was a great bunch of ladies and we had a scream like we always do - well I must own up they probably think of me as Ladette to lady!!!
We get thoroughly spoilt at Mrs Wonka's there is always chocolate on tap!! (Well you know what I mean - not literally!) but I think Mr Wonka maybe working on it!!

Finally I received 2 lovely awards from a couple of lovely blogging buddies, Elaine and Nicki and funnily enough they were the same just a different colour!!
Apparently they think I have "Attitude" see it's confirmed I am officially a Ladette!!! lol
These are special as they also come with a $5 dollar gift certificate to spend at Digis with Attitude, aren't I Lucky - Thank you ladies!!
I do have to tell you 3 things about myself though - umm where do i start...........
1. I love music and singing (can't sing but love to practice!) all types of music but especially Linkin Park when I am doing my housework.
If the kids are annoying me I will play Will Young and sing Evergreen at the top of my voice so I can annoy them!! fair huh!!
I do have to blow my own trumpet though and can sing a wicked version of Robin (Kermits nephew) Halfway up the stairs - so proud!

2. I was a Brownie when I was younger an Elf and have remained a true brownie ever since and am proud to say I always "Think of others before myself!!"

3. I have held a spider in my mouth a bit like I'm a celebrity Jungle!!! .......................ok so not like in the jungle,picture the scene - kids were on the settee and I was pulling the curtains looking up with my mouth open (don't ask me why it was open i dunno) as I pulled the curtains something landed in the back of my throat - obviously I started choking and causing a scene with kids laughing, spat this thing out and it was only a blooming great big spider which unravelled itself and scuttled under the settee!! waaagh yeah I know nearly death by spider!!
Luckily we both survived!!
I also have to pass this on to 5 others

Have a great day and enjoy your weekend - no snow for us yet hope its not too icy wherever you maybe and stay safe!

Male card!

Hullo, Hullo,
Oooh such a long time since I last posted such a bad blogger I am, I do apologise, life in general has been busy and then we have had the dreaded lurgies that have been floating around.
I am still trying to shake it off but still have the dreaded cough that keeps me awake at night (and everyone else supposedly! oops)
I thought you may like to see the card that I had made for my Dads special birthday, male cards are always hard but this one just came together and I love it I have used lots of punches and dies for this one, I even embossed, I always forget about my CB folders it's such a sin as I love the effect they achieve this one is called Diamond plate and is fab for the guys.
The cork tiles are little pads off a new piece of glass we recently bought so I trimmed them to size to make scrabble effect tiles!!
I will be entering my card into the following challenges
Papertake Weekly - autumn colours
Tuesday throwdown - buttons and bows
Paper playtime - about love or something you love (i luv my ms punches and mft dies not forgetting my Dad of course!!)
Little papershop - Die cuts
Anything goes - emboss it
Well that's it folks for today but I will be back as although I have been MIA two lovely ladies had been thinking of me and given me awards which cheered me up I can tell you so I will post them next time.
Toodle pop!
missed you all x
