My Fave Five Cards 2010

Hi there! I just can't believe it's New Years Eve already. Where did 2010 go? Another year older and wiser? (not sure about the wiser bit). I'm making the same old resolutions as last year, you know the ones, eating and drinking less and getting fit. I will try, honest! lol. My other resolution is going to be ENJOY, especially the time, I spend  with my family and friends.

The lovely Debby over at A Scrapjourney has aked everyone to share their five favourite cards from 2010 and she also has some yummy candy. Thanks Debby.

Here are mine:

Hope you all have a lovely New Years Eve and I would like to wish you all a really  Happy & Healthy New Year.

Whoopsie Daisy

Hiya all, hope everyone is well. Me and hubby had a run to Barnsley to have a look at the sales earlier. He bought some clothes and I bought some yummy craft stash from the sale at Craft Box at Elsecar Heritage centre, 15% off everything including the sale items. Got quite a few Magnolia stamps & some paper packs, can't wait to ink them up.

 I was inspired by the very talented Debby with her beautiful Easter card. So I got out my daisy punch to make this quickie card.

I used: Papermania paper
Pollycraft digi image
McGill punch
Nellie border punch
LOTV sentiment
Craftwork card candy

Hope everyone had a fantastic christmas day and hope you're all still enjoying spending time with loved ones, relaxing and having loads of fun.  We have had our daughter & grandson stopping for a few days and then our sons girlfriend joined us yesterday at lunchtime, so we had a perfect day.  We had entertainment laid on, in the form of Bradley, who had us all in tucks, singing on his microphone whilst playing his keyboard. It's his third birthday tomorrow and we are taking the party to his Mama's (my mum) house, as she's not been too well and Bradley adores her.

Carol singing mice

Hi all, we haven't had the snow thats been threatened yet, but I know loads of you have. How can something so beautiful be so hazardous? especially as the powers that be, never seem to be prepared for it. Hope you all keep safe and warm. The best thing to do is stay indoors and get some crafting done.

We're off to Bradley's birthday party at an indoor play area. His birthday is actually the 27th so today is a better day for it.

I've had a lovely win from crafts4eternity a really cute penguin digi stamp. Thank you Michele & team.

Cookie Emma

Hi everyone, hope you're all enjoying your weekends.

First of all, I've had some lovely news, I've made top three at crafts4eternity, Thank you so much Michele and team, I'm really chuffed.

Finally the snow is thawing and today is a much brighter day. I've been a bit busy over the last couple of days, we have had our daughter Samantha & grandson Bradley and Tilly the cat, staying with us. They were stranded at their house mid-week and Bradley was poorly, so after we dug our car out we got as near to their house as we could and brought them home with us. Had Bradley to the doctors, got him some antibiotics and he's now loads better.

 Made this quick card this morning before anyone else got up, although had Ely for company on the warmspot on my craft table.( Just Ely on the warmspot lol )

More Snow

No, not the real stuff, the B&M glitter stuff in a bag.
Put loads of it in this little exploding box and also everywhere else, the craftroom and  landing are covered in it. It's very static and clings to absolutely everything including Ely (one of my cats) who has taken to sleeping on my craft table. Think it because its over the radiator, so it's lovely and warm. Just right for a snoozy. 

Hope you are all snuggly warm  and enjoying your evening.

Snow Day

Hi all, had the day off work today, as school was shut, bet loads of you have been off too. I had a walk to my Mums,(don't walk at best of times, you get lazy when you drive everywhere, but not good in 20 inches of snow.) to check she was ok and get her a bit of shopping. My hubby managed to get home after being stranded at work overnight but the car got stuck on the road, so we had to dig it out. Our neighbours car got stuck further down so we helped dig theirs out too. After tea I had a hot soak and made this quick card. My hubby bought me a lovely bag of stash last week from TK Maxx, so used some on this one.

Hope you are all safe, sound and wrapped up warm.

I used: squigglestamps Miss Evie flowers, digi stamp
          Colorbok papers
          AC cardstock
