Teachers Gift

Here is a little something that I've made for Cameron's teacher. Its just a simple little shopping list pad, but you cant beat a bit of pretty paper to transform stuff!

for my brother

As soon as I saw this fab image from Pollycraft, I knew it would be perfect for my brother's Christmas card, his name is Maurice (the digi image - not my brother) and there is a very strange likeness there,lol! This sentiment was used with this image on one of the DT cards from
Joanne, and I thought it was just perfect!

for my parents

This is the christmas card I made for my parents, wanted to keep it fairy simple and elegant this time.
Backing paoer is "papermania, home for christmas", the main font is Chopin Script, and have used my wonderful ms border punch here, I think the ribbon and bow came from a box of thornton choccies, also added a wee bit of candy to finish.

Stuff to do when you're snowed in.....

Another horrid amount of snow during the night, the 71/2 inches that I mentioned on my last post, turned into 10 at 6am this morning, and it is still snowing now. Obviously the schools are shut and the kids are home, I am SOOOO glad I booked a days holiday off. We are going into hibernation today, and I am already hearing the call from my craft table.

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....

we are now at 19cm (or 71/2 inches in old money) on my table and its still snowing and we're forecast a load more tonight :(

In case you've not seen enough of the stuff already...

Thought i'd share a few snow pic's with you!

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!

I had to walk the full length of this field!

I did also stop to say hello to these ponies.

People ask me which one of my kids enjoy the snow the most - hmm, let me think now, lol!

This was on Tuesday mid-morning and the snow was about 21/2 inches deep - we are now up to about 5inches, and due more tonight - grrrr!

This is the view from Megans bedroom window, it looks surprisingly picturesque for an area that totally isnt!
Both of my kids have been off from school for the last two days, and im having to use some of my holiday leave time to be at home with them, but have managed to get in a bit of crafting time too, so will upload the results later.
Keep warm and safe friends. xx
