Hi everyone, hope you all had a good Christmas and are gearing up for the New Year.  I'm still on school holiday and don't go back to work until next Wednesday, so I'm enjoying spending time with the family.  I have however, managed to get a card made for the Less is More challenge which this week is Just One Word.

I wasn't sure at first which word I was going to use - 'thanks', 'friend', 'love' etc. etc. the list is endless, but stumbled upon this word and knew I had just the thing to go with it...

I love printing my words straight onto my cards, it means they go on nice and straight and I'm not fiddling cutting out (I do struggle with straight).  The images are Mini Diva Doodles from Pink Petticoat which I've left white, just coloured the flowers and added some glitter.  I then finished with embossing a little frame round each handbag, think it's turned out quite well.

I'm also entering this card into the colourQ challenge - black, white and one other colour.

The last thing for me to say is I hope everyone has a great New Year and look forward to 2012.

Happy Christmas Everyone

Hi everyone

Hope you all ready for the big man to arrive in two sleeps time - I think I nearly am.  Just finished a mountain of ironing and four hours later it's all ready to be put away.

I've been a very bad blogger recently, time just ran away with me, but hopefully in the new year I will try and be better.  Anyway I wanted to show you a couple of things before I sign off for Christmas.  The first is a wedding card I was asked to make by a lady who runs the local toddler group my son goes to.  Her daughter is getting married on New Years Day...

I've made similar cards before in different colours but think that they work really well.  I printed their names on to pearly card and added a vellum overlay with the wedding day greeting on the front.  The flowers and gems are a bit fiddly but they look nice when they're done.  I made a matching box to send it in too.

The second is of my three year old son, Oliver, who is in the Foundation class at school. They did a little Christmas show, it wasn't a nativity so they didn't dress up but they sang songs about what they liked about Christmas.  It was very cute and he remembered all his songs - as you can see, he was a twinkly star on a Christmas tree.

Anyway that's it for now, got a bit more wrapping to do them I'm going to sit down with a glass of red and watch Singing in the Rain - I love that film.

Hope everyone has a very happy Christmas and a wonderful new year - enjoy, I know I will!!!

Less is More - Green

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a good weekend.  It's very wet and windy in West Yorkshire today, so I've managed to get some cards made this afternoon.  One of which is the Less is More challenge which has a Green theme.  Green is one of my favourite colours and here is my card...

Sorry about the picture, it's dark now and the autoflash on my phone makes pearlescent card very shiny.  Anyway, I typed the words Wishing You Peace on the computer and printed onto the card.  I then stamped the Craftwork Cards snowflakes in three different green memento ink pads, a bit of stickles and a nice green ribbon to finish.  Hope you like it, I've already had a look at some others and as usual they are fab.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
