Fave Five of 2011!!

Happy New Years Eve to you, are you getting excited about celebrating tonight?
Where has this year gone to, it's absolutely flown by for me that's for sure!!
Here are my fave Five cards of 2011 that i am joining in with the lovely Debby
she does this every year and you really must pop by to see her as she makes the most wonderful cards!
1st up is a heavily die cut and punch card which i made for my lovely mum x
Well yes one of the many elzybells i have used with a bit of paper piecing going on and those gorgeous little clouds - so sweet!
I really like how this turned out - using Kraft again!!!
Oh and again lol!!!
this may be the first time i tried colouring on Kraft, really like this affect

And last but no means least another one which i made for my mum and one of my first attempts at distress inks!
Note to oneself to spend more time practicing with the inks lol x
Hope you liked reminiscing with me!
Hope you have a wonderful night tonight whatever you may be doing and may i wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year!!
See you in 2012!!

Bo Bunny Card and FREE POSTAGE ALERT!!!

Hullo, hullo,
Hope you all survived the Christmas Festivities and that Santa brought you everything you wanted!!
We had a lovely time but have to say I am glad it's over, I do Christmas Day and Boxing Day for the family and although I enjoy it when it's here, I absolutely hate the run up to it I get so stressed!!!
I have eaten far too much and feel very uncomfortable but tell myself well If I eat a little more I may feel better!
Where's the logic in that!!
Not sure If I should be posting Crimbo cards as it has gone, lol but here is one that I made for a Create and Take at work who have FREE POSTAGE until 3rd January so if you did fancy a bit of retail therapy or were lucky enough to receive CRAFTSULOVE vouchers for Christmas now's the chance to spend and save on postage!!
It would be rude not too!!
See you soon and a big Hullo to my new followers x
PS - I still have 2 presents to find in my "safe place" which unfortunately to the disgust of my children, I cannot for the life of me remember where it was!
I wouldn't mind but I only wrapped them on Christmas Eve!!
May have to buy a new brain in the sales!!
No funny comments please Mrs Squires!! lol

Red Sky in the morning ..........

Hullo, Hullo,
Sorry you had just piccies and no words for a couple of days!!
Silly, stupid, daft bat old me obviously pressed a wrong button and managed to turn my blog into something I knew nothing about!! Doh what a dingbat I am!!
This was until Caz came to the rescue and worked her magic within about 2 nano seconds - what a fool I felt!!
Thank you my friend x
So onto the piccie this was a photo taken from my bedroom window the other morning, unfortunately it didn't pick up well in the photo but just above the trees it was a lovely blue and looked like the sea it was amazing!!
Just a little card that took minutes to make and yes I have used an Elzybell again!!
I would like to wish all who visit a wonderful wonderful christmas and all the best for 2012!!
Just incase I don't get a chance to pop by again as I still have pressies to buy -
talk about last minute larry!!
Toodle pop!

Kraft Galore!

Hi de hi!
Lots of Kraft card on this one I just can't leave the stuff alone!
It is definitely the go to cardstock for me , slowly I will try and wean myself off, it will be difficult though.
This is a very simple card and one i think you could get away with for the men even if it does have a little sparkle!
I have used the crafts too polka dots folder , nestabilities labels 13, Kars Small christmas tree stamp along with personal impressions Silent night sentiment set.
I just love the colours of the ribbon together.
Anyone finished their crimbo shopping yet?

Mr, Snowman!

Good Morning!
Ooh what a chilly one it was last night, lets hope that snow is not coming just yet,Christmas Eve would be nice - how magical that would be!!
Anyway still trying to get in the Crimbo mode but have to say I am struggling at the mo , I do miss the kids being younger and the excitement you have with them, now they are older it's different and a lot more expensive!! lol
Well here is Frosty the snowman, well that's what i have named this little Quickutz fella and he made a nice simple card for a recent create and take at work.
Cards and more - snowflakes
one stop craft - let it snow
sweet stampin - snow something
