Christmas in Mulberry Wood Sneak Peak

Hi everyone, Crafter's Companion have a very exciting launch this Friday at Midday on Create and Craft of a new CD and six stamps and some Hunkydory Paper Kits.    I have to say that I really love this CD and the stamps so much so that I think it is my favourite range so far from Crafter's Companion. 

My sneak peak is a card companion from the CD which are one of my favourite features from the CD.  They are so quick to make and just perfect to help you get all your Christmas cards made.  

If you would like a chance to win this new range, take a look here on the News, Views and Inspiration to find out about the Mulberry Wood Blog Hop.

Thanks for stopping by.

Winter Wonderland ....

Hi all, my blog has been a bit quiet this week as I've been away on holiday in Derbyshire.   It is certainly a lovely area of the country. 

Anyway I'm a bit late in posting my Winter Wonderland DT card today as I didn't get chance to schedule it before I went away.  The theme over at Winter Wonderland this week as set by my DT buddy Marianne is 'Christmas Teddy' so we want to see lots of Teddy cards!  If you are anything like me this will be a great challenge to join in with as I love Teddies!

I have used a LOTV die cut on my card which I find so great to make a quick card and my pile of Christmas Cards is growing nicely.

Thanks for stopping by.

Surf Dudes 2011

Hi everyone, I decided I should get some of more holiday photos from last year scrapped before I go on holiday this year and have another load of photos!

This is one of my favourite photos from last year's holiday so I printed this photo out quite large.  I used some free 6 x 6 papers from a magazine to make up my layout along with a fab sketch from Creative Craft World  This sketch was just perfect to use with the smaller 6 x 6 papers.

The title was cut on my E-Craft machine from Crafter's Companion.  I really love my machine, it is so handy for titles as I can cut all the font's that I have on my computer, how great is that!

Thanks for stopping by.

Winter Wonderland Challenge ............

Hi everyone, it's time for another challenge at Winter Wonderland and this week we have a photo challenge for you.   I decided to do a winter themed layout this week and took inspiration from the colours in the photo below.  I you will come along and join in the challenge this week and make a start or add to your pile of Christmas cards or why not make a layout and capture some memories instead!  The photos on my layout are of the snow we had back in February.  I've been getting some pictures printed online lately which makes it so much quicker when I go to do a layout as I can just grab a couple of photos and get started!

I would like to enter my layout into this month's challenge at The Happy Scrappers whoose theme is 'The Great Outdoors'.

Thanks to everyone that has left me get well wishes, I do appreciate them. I'm still fighting this virus but feeling a little better than I was.  I think the pain killers I was taking were actually making me worse! 

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Jubliee and a Card ...........

Hi all, my blog has been very quiet lately as I'm still trying to fight off this virus.  Anyway I hope you have managed to enjoy the Jubilee today whatever you have been doing.  I quite enjoyed watching it on the telly I think I would like a ride on that nice boat the Queen was on, shame the weather was not so great though. 

I have managed to make a very quick Jubilee layout in my Serif Craft Artist software tonight of Grace with her Jubliee makes from Preschool.    

And this my DT card for Crafter's Companion monthly challenge and our theme this month is 'Time to Embellish'. My card is quite a simple one for me but I think it shows my daisy embellishments off really well.

The embossing folders on my card are by Darice from  Crafter's Companion
