'Tis the season....

Well as promised I am back with more Christmas things to share with everyone. I saw these tags on Kelly Slattery's blog a while ago and just fell in love. Very easy but yet effective to make. Using Winter Post stamp set. Very Vanilla, Real Red and Old Olive Cardstock. Early Espresso, Real Red Ink. Like I said Easy!!! :)
I have a few Christmas Cards to share soon too. :)

Lots to Share....

First of all apologies AGAIN for my lack of blogging. :( As you all can understand this time of year is extremely hectic and sometimes some things tend to get put on the back burner (so to speak).
But in saying that I have LOTS to share with you all.

Ok..... First I thought that I would show you an advent calender that I made as a gift for someone. I used a muffin tin, as they come with 24 holes. I have seen this idea on a couple of blogs quite a while ago (sorry cant remember where???) and thought what a fantastic idea!! The thought behind it is that you can use the tin all year round then when its December you put 24 little goodies inside and put the numbers back on. The numbers are made from magnet sheets, I have just stuck DSP on to the sheets. (Tip: As some of them were not sticking properly I put a couple of mini glue dots on the edges). Inside each little cup I have stamped various images with christmas stamps.
I will be back soon with more Christmas things to share.

JAI Challenge 41

Today I thought that I would share with you a card that I made this morning with the Just Add Ink challenge in mind, this week its Just Add Birthdays.

I used Razzle Dazzle stamp set and some of my favourite colours. Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Not Quite Navy - I love this combination. :) As you can see that I have used the "Rock and Roll" technique in this case with Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy.

Once again I am really sorry about the terrible pitchure, I think that I really need to invest in a new camera. :)
Hope to be back soon, I have some wonderful Christmas ideas to share.

Lollypop! Lollypop, Oh Lolly Lollypop!!!

Today I thought that I would share with you some cute little lollypops. They are very easy to make and a good excuse to use those scraps. Because I am yet to have a play with the new In-Colours I thought that I would take this opportunity too. And I AM IN LOVE!!!!! All these ideas rushed to my head whilst making these.... :)

Arent these colours devine. Be back again soon.

Nice and Bright.....

I used whisper white cardstock and stonged it HEAVILY with my stampin sponges and Elegant Eggplant inkplant.
