New Year Birthdays

Well hope you are all enjoying your Christmas Holidays. I am enjoying the relaxing break in between a bit of working and today some crafting.

I made these two cards just using some scraps of paper and cutting them up adding a bit of bling, stickles and liquid pearls. I might be brave and enter them in snippets playground.
Well I am off to play some more have a great Monday, back soon x

Mum and Mother

Here I have made my Mum's and Mother-in-Law's Christmas cards.
My mums, I stamped then added some liquid pearls. Also I used my bow maker to tie the ribbon.

This one I stamped using clearly besotted stamps. Made yet another bow, as you can see I like my new toy! I then added some miniature buttons bought from hearts and crafts at Walkern.
My poor Mother has dementia, it's very sad to to see her she doesn't even open her eyes now, but she has a wonderful family who support and visit her regularly. In some ways I am glad my late husband doesn't have to see her like it as it would of upset him so much.

I will be back with some more posts soon x

Christmas cards at last

Well I am finally getting into the swing of making some christmas cards, about time I might add.
I have to say I do love these snowflakes dies from clearly besotted .

Son's New Car

 I had another busy weekend, took my son to pick up his new car, he has started an apprenticeship in paint and bodywork and now has to travel further so wanted something more economical. We picked it up Saturday morning. Then back home to pack for a weekend in London with friends.

Hubby and I stayed at the Landmark Hotel which was very nice. We had a little wander and a coffee at Gail's Artisan Bakery. Then went out for a meal at The Guinea Grill superb food although quite a small ancient inn so tables were quite close together but very nice. Then some christmas shopping on Sunday with my daughter who came and joined me while the boys went off to a car auction at Sotherbys.

Last night had a little time for some makes so thought I better get busy on some christmas cards so here is my makes using Clearly Besotted Dies, very please with the results. The Merry & Bright wood accent I got from Hearts and Crafts lovely local shop. Hoping to do some more crafting this weekend so maybe be back soon. xx
