The 8th Day of Christmas .............

Hi everyone,  not long now till the great man in red visit's us, I hope your plans are going well!  I am back with another make for the Crafty Ribbons 12 Days of Christmas event.  This is another page from my Christmas scrapbook and this time it's me dressed as Santa as part of a sponsored 5K Santa Dash that I did with my running club.  We all had lots of fun dressing and up and it was all for a good cause as well which made it even better! 

I have used Santa's Wash Day Ribbon on my layout which I thought was just perfect to go with these photos.  

Thanks for stopping by.

 I'm doing Journal Your Christmas which is an online class from Shimelle.  I signed up for this online class about 4 or 5 years ago and after paying the first time the class is free every year after that.  You get a pdf and video each day with lovely inspiration.   I so enjoy it and even though I always end up not finishing my albums they do help me focus on all the fun that Christmas should be and not the stress! 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

The Little Red Robin ......................

Hi everyone, please scroll down to my previous post for my details of my candy winner.

I hope you are well and have had a good weekend.  I have had a lovely day out today at the Christmas Market at Bury St Edmunds with Grace, my sister and my little niece Anya.  I got a few Christmas presents which was good, not too many left to get now!  

On to my card, I brought this super cute little robin a few weeks ago and decided to paper piece him.   I have not added too much embellishment to this card as I need a few flatter ones for posting.

I Wanna Build a Snowman!

Hi everyone, I hope your week is going well. It's about this time of year that I always start to feel a bit over whelmed with all I still need to do to be ready for Christmas.  Do you feel like that or is it just me?   I always end being ready in the end but at the moment it feels like a daunting task ahead with cards still to make, presents still to buy, and a  Christmas dinner to organise along with loads of busy nights and weekends out.   I wish a fairy could just come along and wave her wand and it would all be done!  Failing that I will just have to take one day at a time and do what I can!

Anyway onto this jolly snowman that I brought when I went to the NEC recently.  I have decoupaged his scarf but I'm not sure you can see that from the photo. I used some frantage on my lamp post and snowflake for a little snowy sparkle and my favourite Xmas papers from Dovecraft oh and the Snowman stamp is a Woodware one. 

Thanks for stopping by.
