Christmas Stockings

Almost here - love this time of year - busy - but love it - cakes made...most of the presents bought - just waiting for the 1st of December to put up my decorations - yes sad I know - but I am a 1st of December decorations up person......

Made these to hang over the fire for this Year - one for each of us - and one each for Rebecca and Emily's boyfriends......

Dead easy...
Hardest bit was cutting out the initials!

 
sewed on initial - added fur and did some holly bells and a hanging tab....
 
 
Just need to find a small gift to pop inside......

Xmas Tags

No card today - but Christmas gift tags...or tree decorations - whatever you fancy.....these are soooo quick to make - and a great way to use that unwanted little bits of card you have - EVERY crafter has a card "scrap" box...

These are just punched out from a die with a bell and some twine added..."simples".....except ran out of red twine!!...
Nearly Friday - nearly the weekend - Sunday is going to rain - so you never know I may get some "me "  time to play...
What ever happens - Have a good one

Entered into  ABC Christmas Challenge T is for tree ornament

candle cards

Aaaaahhhh just come back from a nice Sunday lunch - did not fancy cooking - not that I cook much so went to the pub for lunch - problem is I now feel like falling asleep!!!

Had to make 2 quick cards the other day - as always Em wanted them last minute...
Found this candle die-cut and love it, already had the Martha Stewart Happy Birthday punch - quick and simple cards.

 And one for a girl



Do not know what is happening with my Magnolia in the garden - but it is flowering again - sad thing is I know the frost will kill it....

Hope you have a great rest of the weekend, and hope Monday is not too bad for you all....

Xmas cards


Beautiful day today - shame I was at work like most days....
Made some Christmas cards - yes some!...simple ones - but at least I have started - Have you?
1st card today is an image from an old fashioned postcard - these are easily obtained - as luck would have it though - most of my images are from original images as my dad is an avid collector of these items...
Love this image. 
 Just a close up - just added the odd bit of glitter here and there
And as always - embossed the envelope - used a star for this card.

Next card - same again used one of my dads images...
 Added the odd bit of glitter on the snow
 And embossed the envelope
And the last image - my fave
 glittered again....perfect xmas image in my opinion
And embossed the envelope...

And because I was feeling sooooooo xmassy...started to soak my fruit for 2 cakes....had to go and buy a new bottle of Brandy though as some Brandy thief had polished off the last lot!!!.

Well that's Monday nearly over - hope you survived

ABC challenge - S for something festive


Hugs

glittered his antlers and glossed his skates...I love this image - used it sooooooooo many times.....can't fall out with it really....


The inside of the card just used up some odd scraps....


 And as always ...embossed the envelope to start off the Christmas cheer before you even get into the card....ho ho ho...............................
Well start wrapping up warm....won't be long before I start lighting the fire again....fab...love log/coal fires
