Evening friends!  Just wanted to wish you a fabulous, healthy and happy New Year!  We're off to the Lakes tomorrow to see the new year in with my husband's brother and family!  Lots of lovely snow up there so hope we get there ok!  Enjoy your celebrations or a nice quiet night in front of the telly - both sound good to me!  See you in the New Year!

Here I Am!

Hello everyone, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  My feet have hardly touched the ground in recent weeks, talk about hectic!  However, everyone seemed happy with their pressies and we had a wonderful Christmas here.  Just been to see Avatar this afternoon - quite amazing!  I now have some time to blog and show you the last of my Christmas cards which I hadn't put up before!

This first one is from House Mouse, coloured with Promarkers and using Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Paper.

These two are made using a lovely freebie image from Inger - these are so gorgeous and to think Inger has given them to us - wow!  Again I've used the Eskimo Kisses paper.  Another freebie below from the fab selection by Mo Manning - just wonderful!!  And I used this great pine leaf border punch from Martha Stewart!

A gorgeous Kraftin Kimmie image here, promarkers and K and Co Winter Wonderland papers - you can't really see it here but the papers are really luxurious and embossed-still have plenty left for next year!
And finally, these soooo cute images from Whiff of Joy which are so lovely to use!

Well that's it for now, want to have a wander round to catch up with all your lovely blogs.  Be back soon!

Woe is me!

Morning lovely bloggers!  Hope you're all feeling better than me today - I have the most stinking cold, so don't come too close!!  Took the day off work yesterday but can't today as it's our busy week ( I work in payroll) so going to struggle in ( this said in my best martyr tones with my hand against my forehead!! Lol!).
At least I was able to make a couple more Christmas cards for the total - up to 83/120 now!! And here they be:

These are made with the delightful Antoinette from Kraftin Kimmie, another fav for Christmas this year. I've watercoloured her with Distress Inks and layered her up onto a mixture of MME and K&Co winter/christmas papers.  The little skate charms I've had for ages and thought they were made for this image.  The colours weren't quite right though, so coloured the tops and the little star with my promarkers to match the papers.  The big bow on the first one was tied with the fabby Bow Easy which I bought at Quixotic Paperie.  Speaking of which, I'm entering these cards onto their blog this week as they are asking for us to use charms.

Well, off to finish getting ready for work, enjoy yours whatever you're doing!!  Take care and thanks for stopping by!
