A-z of Christmas

Over on the docrafts board one of the challenges I try and join in as much as I can each year is the A-Z of Christmas. You dont have to do every day but it does inspire you to get on with your christmas cards, and as I have challenged myself to make a card with every christmas image I have got in my basket(nearly 100) it seems like a good idea lol!

B is for Bauble
C is for Candle

A spoonful of sugar


Here is my card for this weeks challenge, I have used a magnolia Santa imaage, and backing papers are from the daisy & dandelion christmas range, thanks for looking

Lesbian Wedding card


Well I had to get my creative juices flowing as I have been asked to make 2 lesbian wedding cards, here is the first one I would love to hear your opinions on the card

Shopping for my mojo

I can not believe how long it has been since I have posted! I have been to Mexico (didnt get swine flu) and been very busy on my allotment, so havent really had much time to craft and it seems I have lost my mojo.

So what better way to get it back than to indulge in a little retail therapy. First I went on a spending spree on ebay I bought a spellbinders wizard, some whiff of joy stamps and sme sugar nellies.

Then I had to order the new whiff of Joy Autumn club, to be shipped in August, then to top it all off I had to go and buy a set of nestabilities and an embossing folder.

So I am now all shopped out, dont anyone tell Rob how much Ive spent lol! Lets hope my mojo comes back real soon.
