Let It Snow

I've been crafting and singing Christmas songs this week. I did decide it was still too early for me to put the Christmas tree up though LOL
It's lovely having all my glitter and sparkly ribbons out and I've treated myself to a new snokeflake die which I love.
I've used it on this weeks card for Creative Inspirations. The theme is spots and dots.
our sponsor is time4tea
I've used a gorgeous image which you can find here she is called Catching Snowflakes.

I used my new cheery Lynn snowflakes. you will be seeing these a lot more. the large snowflakes are from Marianne and I used a couple of spellbinders dies.
I also had fun playing with various Stampendous Frantage embossing powders. This is where my spots and dots come into it, I dotted the frantage everywhere! OMG I just love this stuff!
I really hope you will come and join in the challenge at Creative Inspirations this week. we love to see all your creations.
thank you for stopping by and I would love it if you could leave me a comment.

Christmas Countdown

hi All,
I've got my first Christmas card of 2014 to show you today.
we only have 15 weeks to go.
where has this year gone?
this is my DT card for Creative inspirations Challenge Blog

this gorgeous image is from our proud sponsor
I hope you will pop over to Robyn's Fetish site and check out her digi's
You could be in with a chance of winning three of her images in our challenge this week and the theme couldn't be easier...
Anything goes, with the option of a sketch which you can fine on the CI blog
I chose not to use the sketch this week as I wanted to keep my card very plain and simple to show off the spray of poinsettia flowers
I added a few sparkly gems and coloured it with copics.
please check out my fellow DT member's blogs for more inspiration, they are such a talented team.
If you do visit them please take a moment to leave them some love. I just know they will appreciate it and they sure do deserve it.
good luck with the challenge, I look forward to seeing all the entries.

Back to School

Listen carefully......
can you hear it?......
Yep, that's the sound of mum's all across the country cheering!
Its Back to School time again!!!
My boys are all grown up now (hmm although I do wonder sometimes)
but when they were both at school I loved the holidays, I enjoyed having the boys at home for 6 weeks. we had lots of adventures and many trips to Florida. oh the time has gone by so fast!
anyway, back to crafting and back to school, that's our theme this week at creative inspirations so I decided I would make a notebook instead of a card this time...
I've kept it plain and simple using Kraft notepad, even the pages are kraft paper, I love it!

I used a cute cc designs stamp and heat embossed the outline in black then colour it with prisma pencils. I'm still tempted to cover him with glossy accents, what do you think?
I used memory box alphabet to cut the letters in matching colours.
then the postman turned up with happy post from Nicola Parr and she had sent me some ribbons, they just happened to be the perfect colour match, what about that for timing. She had no idea what I was working on. Amazing, thank you Nic, you are a star!
so now its over to you again, I love seeing all the entries for our challenge so I hope you will come and join in again this week.
