A Few Christmas Gifts ............

Hi all, I hope you are well and enjoying a nice Christmas break. I'm going shopping with my Mum in Law which I know I will enjoy as she great company.

I have a few photos to share today of a few gifts I got for Christmas.  The clock was from my Mum and Dad and my sister.  I choose the clock from a little shop at the top of the Shambles in York. I've been looking at these clocks for a few years now as we go every year so this year I decided I had to have one.  Kindly my mum and sister paid for it as my Christmas present and I love it!  

The second present is from my mum and is some teaspoons with teacups and teapots on. I have thing about teapots and teacups even though I don't drink tea lol!

The last present is a gorgeous Cath Kidston cup that I got from a friend

I did get some lovely craft goodies too so I will be back to show them another day!
Thanks for stopping by.

New Dinkies at Little Claire ................

Hi everyone, I'm sorry I've been a bad blogger just lately.  I've not been very well for the last few weeks.  I have been at work this week but I've felt so exhausted I've been in my pj's as soon as I've got in from work. 

Anyway here are a couple of cards that I made using some gorgeous new dinkie stamps from LC Designs.  

Did you where a Christmas jumper today?  This is me and Grace in our Christmas jumpers!

Time for an early night now, I need to get rid of those bags under my eyes lol!

I hope to get caught up on all your blogs soon!
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi all, just a quick post from me today to share my card for the Craft Ribbons Challenge as me and Grace are both poorly.  I think we have got a virus that has been going round Grace's school.   Poor Grace has missed going to a Panto with the school today so she was very upset this morning.  

Anyway onto my card which is my card for the theme of Cultural Christmas with a Ribbon.  There is a wonderful prize for the winner so I hope you will come along and join in with the challenge.

December Scrapbook Album ............

Hi everyone, I hope your week has got off to a good start.  I've got my December scrapbook album to share with you today.  This is one of my favourite craft projects that I do all year.  This is my 5th year of doing Journal Your Christmas that is Shimelle's online class.  Although I have 4 albums that are not yet complete (they are work in progress!) me and Grace had a great time looking back at all the memories that have been recorded.  This year I am determined to complete my book!  So far so good, up to day 7 is done.  I'm sharing the album cover and day 1 today.  I will share some more pages later this week! 

Thanks for stopping by.
