Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone! Have a great Christmas here is a few Christmas makes from me

A Christmas Wreath Inspired by Tracey and Anita, and thank you for helping me build it too.

A quick gift card that I made for a special teenager.

Rum Truffles for Hubby his mum makes them every year for him so I have tried to do this when he doesn't see her (although he will this year) I usually use a different recipe but I can't find it anywhere so just got this one off the internet (not as nice as usual).

Ok, so I hear you ask 'what is this' well last night hubby was at snooker so I thought I would join in the craft and chat group with the QVC ladies Kirsty, Amy and Marion.
OMG!! what a laugh it was, Kirsty managed her demo with distorted sound she made a great tree out of an old book, then it came to Marion who was there in sound and no picture just a blue screen! eventually sussing it out and demoing lovely flowers and then it was Amy's turn, well! we switched channels due to tech difficulties then she had sound and no pic then pic with no sound so she managed her demo in silent eventually, with everyone in the chat room making stories up as she went along.
everyone had such a fun time it is definitely one to remember!
apart from hubby coming home early and thinking I was bonkers, almost wetting myself looking at a blue screen it was fab thank you for the entertainment ladies.:)

Here is a pic of the blank screen while Amy was talking lol!

Last but not least here is the lovely bunch of flowers I received from work thank you to everyone.

Welcome to all of my new followers and once again Have a lovely Christmas and a happy new year.

I love reading all of your comments.

bye for now.

Nearly back to planet earth!!

Thank you to everyone for all of your well wishes:) I am back home from hospital slowly getting mobile:) still in a lot of pain mainly from the staples but it is easing, I am pleased to say.
I am hoping when I can sit up I am going to catch up with Tim's tags, it is torture not being able to make them.
So in the mean time here is a card I made in November for my father in law.

I used All of Tim's products on this and used crackle glossy accents on the clock and letters.

Just a quick simple card.I hope you like it.

Thank you for looking please feel free to leave your comment's

T!m's Tag - Day 4

Here is my next Tag for day 4 of T!m's 12 tags you can see Tim's here.
I had so much fun with this tag, although it was a long process waiting for everything to dry. I have put 2 pictures on as I couldn't decide which I liked best.
I didn't have the snowman die (although I have ordered it) I couldn't wait to get started, so I hand cut the snowman and I didn't have the snowflake die so I punched some out of acetate.

So my big day has arrived:( just a quick post, hopefully I will be able to catch up after my operation.
Better go and finish packing and see you soon.

Thanks again for your lovely comment's it keeps me smiling feel free to comment as I am hoping to be able to get wifi in my room.

I hope you like it.

T!m's tag day 3

Oh my gosh!!! I am having sooo much fun with these tags:) I am so looking forward to today's tag too :).
OK so I didn't have the stamp or embossing folder or cut and dry foam or bells lol! for this one so I stamped lots of Xmas stamps in different colours and added some fluffy stuff and glitter to make it a little different, I wasn't sure about it at first but I am loving it now:).
you can find Tim's here.

I did emboss the tag using dots die by cuttlebug and added some stickles randomly to the embossing, I used a Wood ware punch and the pine cone die for the leaves, added red pearls for the berries:)
and instead of the bell I found a lovely flower in my stash from a bracelet which I broke off :)

Thank you to everyone for all of your lovely comments I am loving everybody's different take on the tags and squeezing in lots of blog hopping too, I have become a follower of some lovely new blogs I have found too:)

I hope you like my version of the tag please let me know what you think.

T!m's Tag - Day 2

Here is my Tag for Day 2 of Tim's 12 tags of Christmas, you can see T!m's here.

Mine is slightly different I used paper from Tim's seasonal paper pad and put two reindeer's on:)
Thank you Anita for posting them to me:)
I like my finished take on T!m's tag.

I used the doily die on grunge paper and some flat backed pearls, (sorry the flash caught the glue :0/)
Thank you to everyone who commented on yesterday's tag and for all of your well wishes:)

I hope you like today's tag, and please leave a comment so I can pop by your blogs, it is blog hopping that is keeping me entertained at the moment.

Tim's Tag day 1

Ok! so it was Dec 1st yesterday and that means day 1 of Tim's 12 days of christmas :) yayyy!!!
You can see Tim's tags here
So here is my take on Tim's tag, I am so glad I have done lots of internet shopping while I have been unwell lol!! I bought the pinecone die and didn't really know what to do with it :( Guess what...... Tim used it on his first tag!!! although it has taken a lot of prctice to get it right.
I am hoping to do tags 1-3 then I go in hospital to have a Disc removed from my back on mon :0(. I am hoping I will be well enough when I get out to play catch up, I managed 8 of the tags last year,
How many of you will be joining the 12 days of christmas tags this year?

I hope you like it.

Here is an advent Calender I have made while laid on the floor in my lounge lol! I was inspired by Tracey and Anita's which they made but I did my own version. Thank you to Anita for lending me your special punch.

Thanks for looking, please leave a comment and I can pop by your blogs to have a nosey too!
