Christmas Wishes

Well Christmas Eve is finally here.
Are you ready for the big day????

We are just about.
We are off up to the Salvation Army hall to prep 
all the veggies and set tables ready to feed approx 45
people their Christmas dinner.

It will be a busy but amazing day sharing with those who need

I hope your Christmas is filled with love and fun 
and that the time you spend together as a family will 
be filled with blessings.

Happy Christmas to you all.

Chocolate Box

Well that's it, school has finished for Christmas
so I can officially relax and enjoy the 
holidays with the boys.

One job we still have to do is deliver some pressies
to our local friends.
These are what I have made this year.

Santa boxes full of chocs!!! Yummm!

They are made using my fav SU colour Cherry Cobbler
and loads of the fab SU punches with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter 
for a bit glitz!

Right time to watch the CBeebies panto with the boys.

Teachers Cards


Hope you had a good weekend.

Today I though I would show you the cards I made for the boys
to take to school for their teachers.

I love this snowman!!

He is joined by some retired Stampin'Up papers, some
lovely ribbon from the new catalogue
and the sentiment is from the lovely Contempo Christmas 
stamp set.

Here is a closer look at our frosty friend.

Perfect for this weather!!!!!

Stay warm and safe.

Wrapped and Ready!


Hope you are having a  good weekend.
We have had yet more snow and with us all being rather tired
and abit under the weather we decided we would stay 
at home today.
We have done some jobs and I've managed to make my first batch of mince pies.
Looks like they won't last long though!!!

Anyway here is a picture of the teachers gifts all wrapped up in organza bags 
with the hand made tags ready or the boys to take 
to school.
I made the holly and berries using my Stampin'Up punches.

Right I'm off for an early night in the hope I feel a little 
more myself ready for a busy Sunday with the boys
Nativity at Church.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Teacher Gifts


Sorry for not blogging, the last week or so has run away with me.
What with 2 school Nativities, 3 Christmas parties,
final preparation for Christmas and illness I've had little time.

I finally managed to make the gifts for the boys teachers.

 I've had this kit in my craft desk for a while but I've never used it!!!
So I decided it was perfect for these gifts.

I think these little calenders are cute and will look great hung up by the
teachers desk.

Sorry for such a short post but I've another busy day
with school things, appointments and the all important church Nativity 

Have a good day.

Little Gift

Good Morning!!!

I've turned my attention to making little gifts and lots of them 
for family, friends and teachers!

These cute little note pads were a bargain and didn't really 
look much.
I've transformed them by covering them with Newsprint Designer Series Paper.
The paper is edged with Pink Pirouette ink
and has a piece of Pretty in Pink card decorated with 
the lovely corner punch.

The felt flowers are sadly retired but I have a few that 
needed using up and they are perfect for these little gifts.
I've also added some rhinestones to give a bit of bling!!!

Right I'm off to school this afternoon to go back to the classroom
to learn phonics with Ben.

Enjoy your day.

Class Cancelled

Sadly due to the very bad weather
I am cancelling tomorrows card class.

I don't want anyone to put themselves at risk by venturing out.
It's been so bad that school closed early (after opening at 9:45!) and I 
had to walk a 4 mile round trip to pick up the boys!!

This was the scene on the way to school.

And buy the time we got back to our village this was the amount of snow on top
of my car!! Which we had used this morning to get to school!!!

We have had about 10inches now and it is still snowing!!!
It isn't meant to stop until some time tomorrow!

So stay inside and wrap up warm.
