I've been given this award by the very lovely Sue.....thank you soooo much for thinking about me and thinking my Blog is worthy of this award.
I haven't been around much the last few weeks,and to be honest still not got back into doing any crafting.I've had lots of crafty goodies for Christmas including Copic markers,but still this hasn't mustered up any interest,i'm hoping my mojo return's soon.
I would like to pass this award to the following people whose Blogs i love to visit on a regular basis.
I would like to thank everyone who visits my Blog and leaves such lovely comments,i so appreciate them,they make my day,so thank you once again.
I would like to wish you all "A HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR",
Take care

Yet another week at Stamp With Stampavie,where's the last week gone.This week there's no theme or sketch to follow "Do What You Want",in other words you can make a card,a box,a tag whatever you want so long as you use a Stampavie image,that could be a Sarah Kay or Rachelle Anne Miller stamp.
I always send a couple of New Year cards so took the opportunity this week with my DT card to get cracking.
The stamp is Rachelle Anne Miller "Congratulations",coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's with a touch of ultra fine glitter and glamour dust.
The firework backing paper is printed off a Robert Addams CD "Complete Cards Vol 1",i've used a quickie glue pen over the firework sprays and sprinkled over glamour dust,very sparkly IRL,but not showing up in the photo.
The textured card is Core'dinations.
Flowers Flora Doodles.
Tartan ribbon from stash,this is where the colour theme came from.
Sentiment computer generated "Chocolate Box" font.
We are taking a break for two weeks at Stamp With Stampavie,so see you all in the new year.
So i would like to wish you all "A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR",
Take care,

Another week at Stamp With Stampavie and this week the theme is "Vintage",hope you will all come and join in,but we do understand how pushed everyone is for time,thanks to everyone who played along with us last week.
For my card i've used Sarah Kay "Christmas Magic",i thought this was the right stamp for the vintage theme,no colouring,i just wanted to leave it as the stamped outline.I've created a photo frame around the image and put some acetate into it,this isn't showing to good in the photo.
All the papers,sentiment and holly embellishments are Anna Griffin.
Tassel from Joanna Sheen.
I'm not really happy with this card,i've not been interested in my craft this last week or two,i've had alot on my mind and somehow haven't been able to summon up any enthusiasm,normally i craft to take my mind off things,but haven't been able to some how.
Sorry for not visiting your Blogs lately,but will try to over the next few days.
Take care and have a lovely day,

This week at Stamp With Stampavie our theme is "A Star",now it's up to what you make....a card,or Christmas decoration etc ,so long as you use a star shape.Check out the DT examples if you need alittle inspiration.
I went the easy route and made a decoration,times precious at the moment,what with Christmas and other things life's throwing at me at the minute.....oh well i keep telling myself it's the same for everyone.
The main star shape of the decoration was printed from a Joanna Sheen CD "Enchanted Christmas",the stamp i used is a SK "Christmas Magic",coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's and a touch of glitter,cut out using my nesties on the Wizard.
It's double sided with a sentiment on the reverse,the stamp is a WOJ,from the sentiment set "Christmas Wishes".
Before adhering the two sides together i sandwiched a tassel with loop in between,i used silicone glue so that the decoration is not completly flat.
I would like to than everyone who joinned in with us last week,and i hope to see you all again this week.
Sorry i haven't been visiting your Blogs for a few days,life as i said as been alittle hectic,but i'll
try my best to visit tonight,so get the kettle
Take care,and hope you all have a lovely day...
