Christmas in July...

No it's not snowing here in Derbyshire and I haven't gone mad - well not much anyway....

This is our challenge over at Nutcrafters - the theme has been chosen by my lovely friend Jo and is she so rightly says "You can never start too early with your Christmas Cards".

So come on those of you who have the urge to make some early Christmas cards, do come and share them with us at Nutcrafters.

Now for things much closer in time... I am off to Summer Crafting this weekend.

I am going to the workshop on Friday and am sooooo looking forward to it, then on Saturday we are off to the craft show..I only went to stamp magic a few weeks ago but still have a long list of goodies I NEED!!! lol

Have a fab weekend whatever your plans (especially if it involves crafting)

Good Morning all.  This is a scheduled post as I shall be at work by now but only until 4 - hopefully the sun is shining and we are all happy bunnies.

This is my DT card for the Nutcrafter's challenge.  I have chosen the theme of  Recipe for One

Screen cards...

Thought I would show you a couple of lovely screen cards I made at the weekend - I had a whole day to do anything I pleased so I chose to craft.

They are made mainly using Stampin Up papers, stamps, inks and punches.  The bottom had a 40th sentiment added to it for a card shower for a certain famous "Ali" lol

Hope you like ???

I am off to Doncaster on Sunday for my 1st craft show of the year "Stamp Magic" - my favourite...

Have a good weekend whatever your plans.

Cold, wet and windy - yuk
Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, stunning cards and fab pressies - we had a great time in Devon and had sunshine most of the time too

Back to reality and work now is my card for the challenge at Nutcrafters this fortnight - Animals or insects is the theme as chosen by Debbie..
This is one of the new images and I love it...the animals are just so cute...

Do pop over here and take a look at what my teamies have created - clever lot you know !!!

Right must dash as hubby is on his way home from work - dinner not even in the oven yet!!!  oops

Love and hugs from a cold wet and windy Derbyshire

Nutcrafter Challenge

Fancy making a card with a number on it - well in that case come and join in our challenge at Nutcrafters as we are looking for lots of lovely entries for our "Numbers" challenge

I have used my promarkers to colour my nutcrafter's "dragon" and then used some freebie papers that I found in a drawer last week.

Great prize for the winner and you could also be one of the top 3 if you use a Nutcrafter image...

Good luck and hope you have all enjoyed the weekend of sunshine.  I certainly have 

Love and hugs as always
