Quick post...



Hope your having a nice Sunday, or are you flying round the shops, I have to admit that most of my gift shopping has been done online, well so is my general food shop to, that will be delivered next week...fingers crossed...(I hate getting over confidant,always ends up with me on my bum ...)
So, here to show another card, hope you like as much as I did, this image is so brilliant I think...
Obviously a Mo image, coloured with flex markers, DP is from LLC and is so lush and double sided, it's newspaper on the reverse, all Christmas adds etc, the clock, music notes dies  are from ebay and the fence is another LLC buy, ribbon stash..lots of glamour dust..brick stencil from clarity, paste is viva decor ..I finished it all off with a blast of Crafters companion Spray and Shine, I love the effect it has and seals all your work, and it actually stiffens the ribbon to...
I hope to enter this into a challenge or two ....
First up has to be Mo's challenge...ATG with a mo image ...
That's all for now, enjoy your day, try not to spend to much.....I KNOW.!!!!!....haha..

Cards cards and more cards..



Are you at the end with Christmas cards now, I know I am, as much as I enjoy it, and still haven't used some of the new stash I bought for this year, which is awful I know...once I got interrupted at the end of last month with the chest infection I am still fighting off, well, I suppose I got lazy...I just had to make this for my hairdresser and I will be giving it on Friday so I can add here...it was another quick make due to the sweet image I bought from Etsy, didn't even have to colour it...and you can find it here at the TeddyBo and Co shop
Cardstock from Papermill, ribbon is stash and tag is a woodware punch, and I did make the little gift box next to it, quite pleased as I had no template just guess work..
I really hope you like, thanks so much for your visit...

They gave us fabulous images to play with, you really need to join in and try win some of these brilliant images and so much to choose from...

Here is my card..
That sentiment kind of sums me up I think....what a year...well it made me smile, but I figure if I start laughing I may end in the nut house...and I want my Christmas gifts....ha ha..
Hope you get time to join us, I have more to show but may not get back today as I am at the hairdresser at 1o'clock, was supposed to be Monday but she is heavily pregnant so best get it done before something happens....

Hi all, just a quickie to show this little hanger I made as a gift for a friend,
It's a simple make, wood effect paper from stash, stamped with a set from penny black I bought last year, the scrolls are LLC and little pom-poms stash, all splattered with white gesso and bits of sparkle that don't seem to want to shine today....
The little tag says 
May you never be
to grown up
to search the skies
on Christmas eve...
I have used it on all sorts of creations this year.....I just love it...
I would like to enter this into the challenge over at SimonSays Wednesday...Gifts
That's all from me today, see you tomorrow for our last challenge this year....oh my...!!!!!
Have a lovely evening....

Here is another Christmas card , mine have all gone out now.....[I think]....I lost so many of my friends address' when I lost all my files, but am managing slowly to get back....
Well I 'stole' this design from my friend AuntySue, I just had to have a film strip with this crazy snowman in, I think it worked, I re sized in Serif and played about abit...but I like and I hope it made someone smile anyway...
Anyway, I hope you like, he is so cute...
Best go and have my tea, going dark now and it's only just past 4o'clock....oh well, not to worry....

Mia made....


Good morning, surprise...I know, but I had to show what Mia has been doing, and how proud I am of her too...
She decided to make  some homemade gifts for the girls around her this year, and I think these are fabulous, made with all 100% natural ingredients too...
Sugar scrubs, made with pure coconut oil, brown sugar and sweet orange oil, which smells Divine, the labels were a free download from the Cottage Market, she does so many ideas, always look forward to the daily emails from Andrea...
The little felt hearts were hand sewn, and the ribbons are from my stash, the jars were purchased on ebay from a company called Jars and things...she is now thinking ahead to make a Gardeners scrub for spring...

This is being entered into the following...
BrownSugarchallenge
Hope you like, we all do and Carla has tried it out..[well she would] and says it makes the skin feel gorgeous....
Thanks so much for your time...
