Christmas Santa

Hello!! Wow how cold is it today! Is it just me or does the cold weather make you want to do nothing oh I miss summer!! Anyway the good thing is that once I start realising winter is here it makes me want to make christmas cards :) so here is another christmas card, I have so many more to make.....

I would like to enter this into the following challenge:
docrafts challenge 

I used a paper from the silhouette store as the main background, and the gorgeous spotty paper is by papermania. 
 The tags are also from the silhouette store. I also used some papermania buttons and twine along with some spotty washi tape to finish the card off. Of course I had to put some stitching on the card as it felt bare without it :)

Thank you for stopping by my blog today I hope you have a great weekend :)

Hello crafty friends, I hope your week is going good! Halloween is my favourite time of year and I just love all the cute & spooky embellishments. I would love to go and visit America at this time of year as they seem to go nuts with Halloween :) I wish we did the same in the UK.

I made this card using designs by dani as  I just adore the sweet papers and monsters.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenge:

I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween I am off to a party with my daughter this afternoon who is very excited to be dressing up as a witch.

Fall card

Hello crafty friends, I hope your all having a good week. Where is this month going? I was dreading autumn to be honest after the lovely weather and sunny days but it only took a few days for me to fall in love with it again, I just love all the pretty browns & oranges. I can't believe how cold it's turned all of a sudden and the nights are getting darker.... More cosy nights in :)

And then of course there will be Halloween soon yay!!

So I was excited to see the shabby tea room host an autumn card and this is my entry. 

I used a polkadot paper as my background and hand stitched around the edges. The pumpkin and fall stamp are by unity stamps and I thought they would match  perfectly for the challenge.

The leaf was die cut along with the branch using the cameo, and the other two leaves I used my Marianne die.

I finished off the card with two buttons and some twine. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week.

See you soon
