Santa baby!


Sorry I've not posted for so long!!
We have been mega busy and we have all be under the weather too.

Any way here is the scrapbook layout I did with the December kit.

All the bits are from the kit except for the holly, which was cut on my Cricut.
It's not so easy to see but the background is stamped using my Serene Snowflake stamp set.

Which is quite appropriate as we have had a far dumping of snow and 
there is more to come later tonight!
The journey to school wasn't the best but thankfully school had a 
late start.

I've been in the garden and taken a few wintry pictures.

Enjoy the snow and keep warm

Just Believe

Good morning!!
It's very gloomy and wet here. Hope it cheers up!

Anyway here is a crafty post
to cheer up the day.

This card is one of the make and takes from 
Convention using the lovely stamp set 
Just Believe
(which I got FREE in my bag at Convention!!).

We had chance to play with the new watercolour paper and
the new colour spritzer tool, which I love!!!

After stamping the image on the watercolour paper
we sprayed it lightly with water to create this lovely effect.

Pictures of the first Simply Scrappin' Club kit 
will be posted on Friday.

I am full of cold, probably from the kids, but the busy

the pictures from Convention.

I came home with allsorts of goodies from Momento Mall!

We had chance to meet the lovely Shelli.

Then it was onto an afternoon of classes and presentations in the 
Royal Marquee.

Including a fab presentation by my lovely upline Julie!
Then it was back to the hotel to get all dolled up ready for the 
awards dinner.

It was such a great night to see all these wonderful people who 
have worked soooo hard, achieve great things.
It was very inspiring.

Convention Eve!

What a wonderful weekend I had at Convention!

Over the next few days I'll show you pictures of what we got up to.

Today I'm going to show you some lovely gifts.
The first is the gift I gave to my room mate and downline,

 I used Baja Breeze card to make a cute little triangle box
which I put some miniture smellies in.
The box was distressed with Crumb Cake ink and decorated
using the heart from the Level 1 hostess set, Punch Popourri,
and the flowers from the Vintage Vouge set.

 I added one of the lovely new flat backed pearls to
finish it off.

 When I arrived at the hotel and got to my room I found these
lovely gifts on my pillow from Anthea.
They are lovely! Thank you again Anthea!

 My lovely Stampin'Up "Grandma" Monica had organised a lovely
pre convention party for the Thursday night.
But sadly due to the horrible journey down, in all the
wind and rain, I didn't arrive in time the rest of the team.
But Monica gave me a lovely goody bag with these bits inside!

And this is the cute bag they were in!!

I'll pop back tomorrow to show you all the pics I took
from the first day of convention.

But I'll leave you with one lovely piece of news.
Next year's convention will be in France, well to be more precise
a very magical part of France!

Any ideas as to where??????


And you can be there too to share the fun and magic.
How, I hear you cry????

Join my lovely team, Sarah's sweet stampers and you could be
on your way to see Mickey and his friends while also sharing some stampin' fun.

Email me for more information

Have a wonderful day

Autumn Days


I've managed to find 5 minutes to make a quick post.
Taking a well deserved tea break from making my last lot of swaps
and gifts ready for Stampin'Up Convention.
Only 1 sleep to go!!!!

So here is another autumn inspired card.
Another pumpkin made using my punches and the lovely
bird, made using the bird punch.

Plenty of distressing on this card too,
using the sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink pad.

Sorry it's such a short post, but I have loads to do
including housework and packing!

Enjoy your day!

As the days go by they seem to
be getting more and more hectic!!!

But I have finally finished the 100
bookmarks ready for the
Salvation Army Teratorial Congress.

There are 2 designs, 50 of each, for the prayer area.
The theme is light, so there will be tealights and flame lamps
galore. So to keep with the theme we picked a read and yellow
colour theme.
For the bookmarks I have used Rose Red and So Saffron with some
Regal Rose and Chocolate Chip ribbon.

I'm amazed that I have managed to get these done
with having had a such a busy weekend.
We managed to find time to take the boys to see
Dispicable Me. It was soooo funny and well worth seeing.
The all day Sunday was spent at church.
Jonathan and I led our first meeting with me preaching!!!!!
It seemed to go well, which is a relief!!

Right I need to put the finishing touches to the 100
prayer cards.

I might just then be able to get done all the things on my list
for convention on Thursday.
