overdone the trifle

well any amount of weight i lost this year has been made null and void by the copious amounts I have eaten over the last few days - mainly trifle. I have eaten my body weight in coffee creams - roll on jan when i shall return to slimming world with a brown bag of shame over my head.
Hope everyone had a lovely christmas - i had some lovely hand-made cards from my crafty friends. I have just made a simple card today for my sister who spent christmas day in hospital - she seems to be on the mend now.
I can enter it in to 2 challenges;
totallygorjuss. - easily does it
mosdigitalchallenge - fave mo card made this year [i added this because as soon as i use a mo image - it becomes my favourite - this was one of the first images i bought and I use it so much.

Back to work tomorrow if I can find anything that fits...

happy snowman

love this digi image by mo manning - easy to colour but looks effective. I learnt the background technique from Lyndsey. Its a good way to use up scraps and peel-offs. Made a few cards last night - but its no good I have to face up to putting away crafting stuff and get the tree from the loft - tho I swear blind it only went back up there last month - where has 2012 gone!!
Will enter this card in the following challenges
Digi Galore notrealstamps. - Christmas
ladybugcrafts - christmas /winter
stampinfortheweekend let it snow

fairy christmas

I have been asked to make a  chrimbo card for a  friends fiancĂ©e.I ihave used a lovely Mo manning image. It's an easel card and I have used some glossy accents to make the Snow Globe stand out and I have used traditional christmassy colours and stickled the holly and flowers to make them sparkle.I have used my new memory box holly die-cut tho it's hard to see!!! I am hopefully going to finish off my own Christmas Cards tonight - so pyjamas call and I shall be sitting in front of the fire - promarkers at hand!!
I will enter it in the following challenges
totallygorjuss - for someone special
craftingforallseasons green& red/glitter& sparkle
mosdigitalchallenge. - something beginning with 'D'  [scallop circle/holly die-cuts]

Thank You Card

I have been asked to make a Thank You card for  our tutor. I have been on a Sign Language Course - really good fun. I passed my BSL over 10 years and not alot of it has stayed with me - its been great trying to learn a bit more. The course finishes a bit before Christmas and we are going to 'sign' Silent Night at the carol concert. I may be signing the first verse three times over and hope no-one realises!!
   The card is quite big - 8x8 and  is using a lovely Mo Manning image and I have been raiding my stash for flowers and gems - it does look better than the photo - I know I always say that[my photography is worse than my signing!!]
I will enter it in to the following challenges
mosdigitalchallenge - anything goes - butterflies
ilovepromarkers. - anything goes

Glitzy Girls

I love the Uptown Girl stamps. This is for my best friends daughter who is 30 - I feel so old I can remember going up to the hospital when she was born a few weeks after my son who was born. They were both born in the Royal Naval Hospital in Gibraltar - it seems so long ago.
Anyway the card can be entered in the following challenges
totallygorjuss - anything goes with glitter [it is actually very glittery but the photo does not pick it up!!]
divasbydesignchallenge - glitter and sparkle
joannasheenchallenge - anything goes excluding christmas
