Santa's on his way.....

Hi all... Sorry I've been such a bad blogger this last week... I came down with tonsilitis and wasn't feeling good at all... but I'm on the mend now..... just need lots of rest.

I'm back as promised with a Santa card that I made for my mum. I've used some very cute
pre-coloured images.

 Imagespre-coloured LOTV pre-coloured Art Pad 32 - Ho Ho Ho! images. 
Papers: LOTV Papers: Nitwits
Dies: Spellbinders Snowflakes?
Dies: Spellbinder Wavy Border thingies?
Sentiment Die... Ooh can't remember and I'm too tired lazy to get up and look! Lol. It was from Dies to Die For.

Hope you are all well and ready for Christmas? My daughter returns home tomorrow to spend Christmas with Mum and I... looking forward to chilling and watching tv... some yummy food! :-))
Sending Huge Hugs to those of you who are unwell or not feeling good.
Take care
 Love and Hugs

Polar Express

Hi all... sorry I haven't posted for ages. We've been having a major clearout at home and a few repairs done. We're hoping to have a new fitted kitchen in the New Year... can't wait as the one we have at the moment is from another era... errr... maybe even biblical times?!! Lol

 Anyway, I've finally managed to photograph some of my Christmas Cards and upload them.... here's one I made using my gorgeous new Stampendous Train Postcard Stamp! I couldn't get a decent photo of this card... tried it with flash, lamp and nothing seemed to help? it looks much nicer in real life!

I really enjoyed colouring this image... all done with Copics even the Postcard bit... just wish that the sparkle on the snow showed up in the photograph!

I hope you are all doing ok and nearly ready for Christmas? I've finished all my shopping apart from food which we are having delivered next week... most of the presents are wrapped... just a couple of last minute ones to do.

Huge hugs to those who are unwell or going through difficult time at the moment... I really hope things improve for you soon.

I will be back soon with another Christmas card... and think Santa himself might put in appearance! ;-) 

Just realised I haven't got Christmas Countdown on my blog? Will have to try and find one...
Love and hugs

Sunnier Climes.....

Hi... thought I'd share the Birthday Card that I made for my Mum. It was her 85th Birthday last Sunday. She likes to look at nice scenery in the dull winter and so I chose this lovely pre-coloured image from LOTV.  She also loves a bit of sparkle hence the glittery flower.

Flower: Prima

Sorry I've not been the best of bloggers lately.... life is getting in the way again.... seems to be one thing after another at the moment with things going wrong in the house.

At least my Christmas shopping is sorted and the presents are all wrapped. I got a few bargains in the Black Friday Sales online... my mum wanted a bigger tv as it was difficult to see anything on her 19 inch one. So I found a 24 inch one for her at fab price. Really pleased with it and it means I can watch Strictly with her on Saturday... and I will be able to actually see the dancers! :-))

Thank you for all your lovely comments... I really do appreciate them! 
Hope you all have a good weekend!
Big Hugs
