Get well soon :)

Good morning lovelies I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. I can't believe its over with until next year.

I have made this card for the paper smooches challenge and I used the stamp set sentiment sampler and hot concoctions. I think the cup is super sweet.  

I started off with a white card base and I added some cosmo cricket paper which I hand stitched the outer edges. I added a doily die cut and a ripped paper bag to put behind the stamped image. After stamping the cup and greeting I added a heart, paper clip and washi tape. I finished off the card with some ribbon and threaded buttons.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me I hope you all have a very happy new year!

A Cardboard gingerbread girl

Hello loves, I hope your all having a nice day. It has been so cold again boooo! How is everyone getting on with their Christmas shopping? I cant believe how fast Christmas has come.

I made this card last night, and I used a piece of cardboard to make a gingerbread girl just for something a bit different. I hand stitched around the paper too, added a die cut doily and then added some threaded buttons onto the gingerbread. I also used a snowflake die and finished off the card with a stamped greeting.

Reindeer christmas card

Hey loves, I hope your week went okay and your weekend is lovely. I can't seem to sleep so I thought I would share a card I made tonight, actually I must of had a mental crafting head on as I made lots of cards tonight :) sometimes it takes forever just to make one card so I was pretty pleased with the result. Except most of the cards weren't christmas cards even though I know I should be pulling my finger out and making more... Hey there's another excuse to craft tomorrow night! 

I used a red card base for this card then layered on some papers and stitched around the dark green paper. The reindeer head was cut using my cricut machine, and I hand cut a heart and added some stitching to that. The little robin was a stamp from papermania which I just coloured in . 

I hope you all have a lovely Saturday and I really appreciate you stopping by,

A chubby snowman card

Good evening crafty people, how is your Monday going?  Its been so cold the last few days but apparently its going to get much colder next week.... I'm hoping it will snow woohoo!

I made this card last night for a couple of challenges:

silhouette challenge blog~use a christmas shape: echo park snowman & snowflake
pixies crafty workshop~snippets used: blue paper, green card & cream card
crafty hazelnuts christmas challenge

I loved the echo park snowman and thought he would be really sweet to use on my card, I also die cut a snowflake and placed some ribbon and a button over the top. I used papermania Christmas stamps and hand stitched around the card. The Christmas tree was made with leftover embossed card which I added some buttons too.

Well that's another Christmas card done, I thought I was doing really well but when I went to see how many cards I made there was far less than I first thought...what's that about? I must of dreamt that I made much more or I have finally gone round the bend ha ha :)
Thank you so much for stopping by I hope you have a great week!!

Happy owls christmas card

Hello lovelies I hope your week is going well, we have a big storm brewing in the UK right now... I hope you all keep safe wherever you may be. 

Here's another christmas card I made today I used my unity owl stamps for this one. They are so sweet and really you can use them for nearly every occasion, which comes in super handy! I used my flex markers to colour them and as usual hand stitched around the card and finished the card off with a threaded button.

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

Santa baby

Hello crafty loves I hope your all good! How are you all getting on with your Christmas shopping? Not too long to go now :) I can't believe how quick this year has gone, its crazy!

I bought some papermania stamps recently and I just loved this huge Santa! He's just adorable and as he's so big he could be used for a tag too.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

simon says stamp challenge-anything goes
albc challenge-christmas cheer

I used my cameo to cut the ripped notecard and stamped my Christmas greeting onto it, and as usual I hand stitched the paper too as I'm haunted now by my sewing machine.... I just can't get the bleeding thing to do what it's supposed to but one day I will try again... Ha ha!! I found some cosmo cricket ribbons and thought they would go with the card and I then I stamped and coloured in Santa. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today I hope your all enjoying the build up to Christmas!
