Good Morning All and a Very Merry Christmas to you all!!!
This is a scheduled post .. and I hope at this very moment I am unwrapping pressies from Santa lol
Today is the first midway slot for TOTALLY TILDA "Thank You" challenge and here is mine .....

I love this Tilda together with this suitcase stamp .. I think they go well together :)   I've coloured with Copics and cut a "doiley" shape using a Martha Stewart Punch around the Page.  The sentiment is one of mine from a clear stamp set MINI MUST HAVES - EVERYDAY and I've punched it out with a Stampin Up oval punch.
Hope you like it ... don't forget to check out the CHALLENGE HERE
So... all that is left to say is .....

Morning All
First of all can I apologise massively for being absent for so long ... Our son was 18 this a few days ago and what with sorting out that and getting ready for Christmas blogging seems to have taken a back seat ... I really don't know where the time has gone and can't believe that it's Christmas Day in 3 days!!!!
Today I'm making my Christmas cake and its smells divine :) then I'm gonna wrap some pressies later on :)
Cardmaking seems to have taken a back seat too and I've no card to show you but I do have an appeal to share with you ...
A blogging friend of mine / ex-teamie, Roberta from Prairie Fairy Designs has launched an appeal ... she is giving away a free digi and would like you to make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society Fund .. she has someone close to her who is suffering at the moment and would like to raise awareness and raise some money ... every penny you donate will go to the fund
Here's the image ...
If you click HERE you will be able to find out all the details
Right I'm off to sort out my cake lol ... I promise I will be back at some point with cards again ... just gonna get Christmas out the way first ... oooooh excited!!!
Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Catch up soon

Morning All
Well .. I've taken the dog for a walk and I'm now going to spend today catching up making my Christmas cards ... I know, I know .. why do I leave it all to the last minute - I do it every year! LOL
So before I get started I thought I share with you some I have made already .... well I say some ... It's the same card, three times :)
I have three friends I have known for 25 years and and I've made them all the same card ... so no favourites LOL

These are the RAGGED CAROLLERS from MO MANNING ... as soon as I saw them I knew I had to have them .. you get three separate carollers and the lampost ... I merged them together to make the scene and coloured with Copics.  The sentiment is from PINK PETTICOAT.
I kept the card simple as the scene is large
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by

Morning All
I'm up bright and early again this morning .. have a few chores to do and then we are putting up our Christmas Decorations Woo Hoo!!!!!! I'm still like a big kid at Christmas .. love the whole atmosphere of Christmas :)
We went out last weekend and bought a whole new colour scheme of decs for our tree ... can't wait to decorate it .... may even post a piccie later he he :)
Anyway ... over at TOTALLY TILDA  we are beginning a new challenge today ... when you first see the theme you may scream .... but believe me it's so much fun!!!
The theme this time is :
NO OTHER COLOURS AT ALL ... no shading and not even a tiny green leaf lol .... The only colours allowed are Tilda's flesh and Hair
Pop on over and check out my teamies' creations for inspiration they are fab as usual :)
Here's mine ....

Another new Christmas Tilda lol ... I stamped her with London Fog memento ink to give her a softer feel and then "coloured" with glitter, the embossing folder is a Tim Holtz one and .. shame on me ... I've had it for ages and only just used it - perfect for this card though - I've cut a nestie circle frame to highlight the 25th, added some pom pom ribbon, lace and punched flowers to finish
Can't wait to see all your creations

Morning all!!
Its a bit cold and nippy here this morning and can you believe I've been up since 5am cos I couldn't sleep!!! ended up making this card for the boy next door as I suddenly realised it was his birthday today ... Oooops!!!
He is Captain of the West Ham Boys .... hence the claret & blue :)
I'm off to do a bit of housework then going to get to work on colouring my images for my Christmas cards :)

I've had this Teddy Bo image for a while now and haven't had the occasion to use it ... so this was perfect!!! I've coloured him with Copics in the West Ham colours and found this scrap of football paper in my stash (that was a lucky find lol).  I added his age in the football and used one of my digi images from a set of 6 - BIRTHDAY ROUNDS which are also available as a CLEAR STAMP SET
and don't forget ....
starts today at CRAFTS 4 YOU .... 25% off of all your orders and if you are currently a Club Member you will receive 35% off  ... starts at 9:00am today, Saturday 3rd December and end 9:00am Monday 2nd January .. so head on over and grab yourself a bargain :)

I'm gonna have a crafting day today .... yippee!!!!!
I've decided to get as many Christmas Cards done as I can .... I've already coloured a lot of the images in - just a case of making the cards now lol!! So I may be back later showing you what I've done :)
Anyway ... thought I'd show you a card I made for hubby to give one of his girls at work for her birthday ...

I love these SUGAR NELLIE DIGIS ... so beautiful!!! I've coloured her with Copics and mounted her on my new Sizzix set of nesting shapes ... (I bought them in September and have only just used them - shame on me lol!!!!), the DP is from a My Minds Eye paper stack and I punched the flowers from the same, the sentiment is one of mine and I've finished off with pearls and card candy
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by :)

Good Morning All
Hope you are having a good weekend ... I popped out to a local craft shop yesterday who had their members day on where you get 30% off!!! Yay!!! Met up with Wendy Woo and had a cuppa too ... Fab :)
Oh .. and you might have noticed my new blog background .... was gonna wait until 1st December to put it on but really couldn't wait ... I'm in the Christmas spirit already lol ... decorations go up next week and I'm nearly finished Christmas shopping .. how great is that!!!
Anyway .... just thought I'd pop by and remind you that you still have a week to enter the challenge over at TOTALLY TILDA where the theme this time is:
Here's another card to show you ... plenty more to be seen so pop on over and check out my teamies for their fab creations :)

Thought I'd keep the card nice and clean and simple so I could highlight the masking.  I've masked together two Tildas and a Magnolia presents stamp and coloured with Copics, keeping the colours to just reds/greys (apart from flesh/hair) and mounted up on red card.  The sentiment is from a Christmas stamp set I've had for years and I punched it out with the Stampin Up Decorative Label punch and then finished off with Bakers Twine and Gems.

I'm off to have a pedicure this morning ... love a bit of pampering lol

Anyway .. thought I'd show you a card I made for a really good friend of mine Wendy Woo .. I missed her birthday :( but saw her last Saturday so she got a belated one ... better late then never eh??

This little cutie is from Hanglar Stanglar and I've coloured her with Copics.  The DP is from a My Minds Eyes paper stack that was free with a magazine and I used my new Stampin Up pendant punch to punch out of it too ... sentiment is from Stampin Up as well

First of all ... I'm so sorry I didn't post this card yesterday ... I went out at 8:00am and didn't get home until after 10:00pm .. I was at the Christmas Show at the Ideal Home Exhibition, Earls Court ... and silly me forgot to do a schedule post ...Ooops!!!
Anyway better late than never lol .. 
We have started a new challenge over at TOTALLY TILDA where this time the theme is :
Check out all my teamies to see what we mean and admire their fantastic work!!
Here's mine ...

I've used another one of my new Christmas Tildas and I've sat her on a Candy Cane and then coloured with Copics.  I decided to do a bit of distressing for a change and distressed all my papers.  I used a Kraft card blank for a change too :) and finished off with some PEARLS, LACE and a MISTLETOE DIE from Marianne :)
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it

I've coloured him with Copics.  The DP is Fancy Pants and I thought the stripey bit looked a bit like wallpaper LOL, the sentiment is one of mine and was a freebie a while back at SENTIMENTS 4 YOU and the "drill" charm is from my friend Sharon's shop EWE 2 CAN CRAFT
