Stuff to do when you're snowed in.....
Finished this wall hanging project yesterday, used scalloped edged and regular circle nesties, and embossed with swiss dots folder to give it some texture, cut the holly with a sizzix die and added red card candy, the green card is pearlescent and looks lush and finally the yummy dotty letters are from this freebie download from Summer Driggs
Speak to you all later, keep warm and safe friends. xx

just been out with the tape measure again....
In case you've not seen enough of the stuff already...
The first ones were taken on my way to work this morning. Cant think of anything worse than driving in the snow, so I walked in. It took me about 45 mins, but probably would've been less if I hadnt stopped to take photos!
This is the view from Megans bedroom window, it looks surprisingly picturesque for an area that totally isnt!

a couple of cards from me
The first is for this months D/C friendship swap, and I fancied climbing out of my "cute & cuddly" box, and doing something just a wee bit different, I must admit I do like this colour!
Next up, is another Chrimblie card, this image from Pink Gem has got to be one of my faves this season.

Something a little bit different from me......
Found some old Funky Foam on top of my wardrobe, and cut a medium and a large circle with a circular nestie, also cut a frame with a large scalloped edge nestie, cut it in half and turned it upside down to create the antlers. Wobbly eyes and red pom-pom was cheapy from either Wilko's or The Works (cant remember which) and finished it with a little off-cut of magnetic tape. I though he looked fab, and should be suitable for myyoung customers.
Will let you know how it goes anyway............

bit of a technical question?
First of all, am I going about this the right way, in that im trying to upload these as a picture?
Is there another program that I can copy this work into, that would allow me to upload on to my blog?
Hope this makes sense, and that one of you clever clogs can help me

Ok, so it was at Madame Tussards, hehehe! I was about 17 at the time, so it was about 20 (OMG!!) years ago and I no longer have either that knitted waistcoat or that figure!!

what i got up to this week......
Thought i'd had a bash at making my own "tickets" this week, Seriff Page Plus se is the program i use for nearly all of my cardmaking, and used this to draw a square then inverted the corners inwards. Played around with it a bit and was pleased with what i created! The image is a donated H&S stamp - isnt he gorgeous!
Hubby asked me to make this wedding card for a friend of a friend, the wedding cake is a Pink Petticoat image, and i added sticky pearls to give it a bit of detail.
Hoping it stops raining and the weather cheers up a bit today, was hoping to get out with the old flymo and get the gardens tidied up a bit today.
Enjoy your weekend!

Sometimes card occasions are like buses.....
First up is a birthday card for one of my lovely Docrafts friends, Julie, whose birthday was last week, so the card should be with her by now. The image was donated, isnt it fab!
next up, is a card i've made for a work colleague, whose birthday is next sunday ( I am two days older than her, and never let her forget it, lol!) Image is a freebie download, my apologies but I cant find the link to that blog atm. The dotty buttons come from a local drapery store and i absolutely love them! This is the card I made to congratulate Lisa, James and Ellie on the arrival of Daisy Grace ( she weighed in at a very respectable 9lbs 12!!)
Finally, this is the birthday card that i made for a very dear family friend. This image is this weeks freebie download from pollycraft, its a treat to colour, so will be using it loads more.
Well, thats about it for now - more to come later in the week! Havent gone into much detail on each of the cards, but if there is anything anyone wants to know, please feel free to ask.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend. xx
