Christmas is a non event in our household so took the time to  sew some mittens for the koalas affected by the bush fires in Victoria.

HAPPY 2016

that special someone

This cute little bird is from Stampendous -when I look through my stamps and digi images birds are every where - not sure what it says about me . I don't know the origin of the paper -I must have trimmed off the border to use on another project.

Tuesday Morning Sketches -no 331
The Cutie Pie Challenge - no 94 - Bingo - I have stitching -a pearl flourish and a cute image.
Passion for Promarkers- week 326 - Lets Celebrate - I used Aquamarkers to colour the bird in a mix of browns -pink and green.

Birthday Hugs

I love Christmas themed stamps and images but if I can make them work for other projects I'm a happy bunny. This is part of a Christmas set from Wplus9 - it has sentiments and presents along with this cute image.By not using festive colours or adding wintery touches like snowflakes I think this works pretty well as a Birthday card and would be perfect for Valentines .

Have I been asleep for 2 weeks ?

In the middle of yesterday afternoon I suddenly realized it was the 13th of December and I really should get my overseas Chrimbo cards sent asap.A quick fix was needed so I decided on the above designs - I made just the three with bauble in different colours - only drawback there is glitter everywhere - I made 6 cards with the 2 owls and just 2 cards with the single owl - the craft room and the dining table were amass of inks ,punches -gems and glitter - I also  cut the card bases .By 11pm I  was ready for bed -cards finished- inserts done- in the middle of all this mess I made dinner and washed the dishes -I cleared all the craft stuff from the dining table so all was calm this morning. For some reason December just crept up on me quietly - I'm not usually so last minute -my Christmas cakes were made early October.

No festive spirit here

I know I should be working on Christmas cards but I really don't feel in the festive mood - I had a little time to spare yesterday so made these . My MIL has a birthday mid December so I will probably make a few more cards and then let my DH choose which one to send.
