Let it snow!!!

Hello everyone!!!

urgh, I am not well today. I have a swollen gland under my arm and the pain is making me feel quite sick, will be going to the doc's tomorrow asap! I don't do pain!!
I am posting the card I made on friday night for Stephanies's sketch challenge over on FCTSC.
To keep my thoughts of the lovely eileen who passed away suddenly,I am puting a snowflake with bling on on every christmas card I make this christmas. Its on the tag on this one!!!
I am going to squeeze this into the challenge of no red or green to be seen over on papertake weekly!!!

The stamps are papermania and the papers are from my temptations big stack. I scalloped the edge on the front of my card with my stampin up scallop punch and added a bit of card candy bling and some different ribbbony bits I got free on a magazine!!

Right, I am popping off to bed now to sleep off the pain!!! what a wimp!!!!

Thank you for popping in xxxxxxx

One of the challenges is the Get funky december challenge to make a decoration and the other is the lily-boo too challenge which is paper piecing, And here he is sat on my christmas tree!!

Male birthday cards.....arghhhh!!!!

Oh boy do I find male birthday cards hard!!!
This one is for my BIL and I saw the idea on susan's blog, big thanks susan, you are so clever. I couldn't see any measurements so I guessed a bit!!!! but it turned out so cute.

I cuttlebug embossed a little strip to hold the easel folds when the card is opened. I did all this and then totally forgot to put it in the mail, so sending big apologies to rich for my dippyness xxxxx
I have has some terribly sad news today, a crafting friend of mine who was on lily-boo's first ever DT has passed away suddenly. My thoughts and prayers are with her family today. Eileen was such a lovely lady and very talented. I am so shocked and saddened by her passing.
Much love to you Eileen, rest in peace hunny.

my first fabric card!!!!

Oh I am so excited!!!!! I have been saving really hard for ages to get an xyron creatopia and on sunday it finally came to the UK and I bought it!!!!!! and oh my goodness it is awesome!!!! Heres what I made!! my first ever fabric card!!!
I used the fabric adhesive to make this little christmas card for my Aunt who is 97.I had this scrap of fabric and I have to admit it is not my normal choice of pattern but I know aunt Audrey will love it. I got the little holly leaves from lakeland plastics a couple of years ago, the organza ribbon is papermania and the buttons are from my stash.

I put the fabric through first and then swapped my cartridge out and put the permanent adhesive one in, I put 2 beermats through along with all the embellies ( buttons included!! i love this machine!!) and a couple of pearly green bits of cardstock to cover the insides of the card as i cut my fabric big enough fold it over the edges for a neat edge.

I put it all together and rounded the edges with my corner chomper. I doodled a little gold edge around the front of the card and put a couple of small holes in with my big bite and to tie the 2 pieces together I use some lovely stretch gold cord. Inside ( which i forgot to take a picture of,derrrrrr!!!) I adhered some gold vellum with some gorgeous christmas peel off sentiments.

I am so pleased because I always find vellum a bit of a pain to stick but all I did was pop it in the creatopia and hey presto!!! even on the organza ribbon you can't see any lue and it isn't at all sticky to touch when you have popped it on!!!! ooo h I love it!!!!!!!!

Thank you for popping in on me, I'll be back soon when I can pull myself away from my creatopia, it is going to be so cool for all my fiddly cricut cuts!!!
