Merry Christmas

Afternoon to you all, ive been neglecting my blog a bit this last week but been busy helping to organising a 50th birthday for my boss Im not sure I shouldve as im coming up to the big 40 soon and as he told me revenge is sweet !! We had a fantastic night and about 95% of people came in fancy dress lots of effort went into the costumes, enough rabbling and onto my card today I used serene snowflake stamps and baja breeze ink from SU then i embossed my top snoflake and added gems , the punch is also SU and the sentiment is from craftwork cards, I used silver mirri card for the backing but the photo doesnt really do it justice. Hope to catch up with you later on in the week with some more xmas cards.  The photos below were robbie and I in fancy dress at the party, we were both so hot with those wigs on but was all worth it !!

Happy Halloween

Afternoon to you all, Ive not been blogging much this week, I was working Monday instead of tuesday this week and its knocked me all off ,  thats easy to do !! Just had a great afternoon playing around with my crafty buddys and how time flys when your having fun. Ive made this halloween goody bag for a little girl who comes to visit me on a friday her name looks squint on here but its the way that Ive had to have my bag sitting to get a photo of it as its really to heavy for my stand, I cut the pillow bag with my cricut and the image is a freebie from which i coloured in with my promarkers and I use some candy at the top and little peel off dots, I filled the bag with kiddy sweeties and a penny for her so Im sure she will be delighted . Catch up with you all later. Aud x

Our House to Your House

Saturday again where does the time go !! It will be xmas before we know it, Im still trying to do xmas cards but so slow this year.  Im going to cut down on the amount I give this year and give the money to charity,  half of the people you give and get cards you never hear or see from year to year and I think the cost of postage this year will have an effect on how many are posted. So onto my card for today, this is a stamp from papermania and I coloured it in with my promarkers and glitzed it up with glamour dust, the border punch is xcut and a nestie for the tag along with one of craft work cards tags , Gems and pearls from stash. Of now to see what I can do today, I think it will be a lazy day or I may go to Turriff with Robbie as he is bowling. Catch up soon. Aud x

The image is from Sugar Nellie called furry friends she is just so cute ! I cut the shape out with my cricut and coloured my image in with promarkers. Gems are from stash.
