This is one of the challenges at the Lollipop Ladies at the moment with the extra challenge of ribbon
I put together a couple of sets of Christmas tags using these cute images
Mama Elephant Cozy Christmas coloured with SU Markers and a touch of flocking
Mrs Claus again from Mama Elephant
This cute penguin is from PTI Winter Penguin stamp set
PTI Holiday Cheer in SU Real red and the sentiment is from ABS Christmas tree trio
I also stamped this in Lucky Limeade
I also made a set of 5 Christmas Cards using the image from Holiday Cheer and a sentiment from Think Big Favourites #20. I used SU real red ink and cardstock.
Think Big Favourites was a gift from a fellow PTI forum member – Thanks Ted

Sorry been a bit absent I am in the middle of birthday week here.
It has been something like this. Saturday 25 9 year old girls for a dress up party in the afternoon. They partied away doing things like the limbo, pass the parcel and musical bingo.
Here is a pic of the birthday cake.
I used Papersmooches Hullabaloo and Inpired by Stamping Fancy Circles stamp sets to make the sign – there is a Christmas tree on the top of this stand.
Saturday night I had 10 14 year old girls for a sleep over. I use the word sleep very loosely – I don’t believe any of them slept I toddled off to bed in the wee hours of Sunday morning after the nearly 18 year old got home from a party. Hubby got up to them at 4 am when they were making a human pyramid in the lounge room amongst other activities I wont mention. Cooked them brekky at 8 am of pancakes.
Miss S’s Birthday cake
This is made from one big cupcake mould with cream filling and piped butter cream icing.
Later Sunday Miss A went to a party where they paint canvases. Haven’t got a pic of that yet.
Sunday night feeling the call to put up the Christmas Tree. I have one tree decorated and several boxes of decorations to yet open up.
Monday – Miss S is now 14
This is her card
I used PTI Polka Dot Parade #5 and Birthday Bash Sentiments stamped repeatedly with Hero Art fluro ink.
Tuesday – Miss A is now 9
This is her card
I used the die from PTI Polka Dot parade #5 to die cut the bird from felt and added the music notes and legs with black ink. I added a black rhinestone for her eye. The blue spot paper is from Stampin UP! and the greeting is from Inspired by Stamping Big Wishes.
Plans for the rest of the week?
I am preparing for a stall at a local market on Sunday
Before that Miss E is turning 18th on Saturday.
Hope you grabbed a cuppa before you started.
Thanks for getting this far
This is my last Christmas card – for now. I still have some more I would like to make, but for the time being I need to put those aside and get a few Birthday cards ready. I am going to need a lot in the next 3 weeks. It is a very busy time in our house from now until Christmas.
I am linking this up to Annabelle Stamps and Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas. Click on the pics above to take you to their sites.
I made this card using Annabelle Stamps Round for Christmas stamped with SU and PTI inks the green card stock is also SU. I used a ruler and fine liner to draw the bauble strings. The sentiment is from PTI Communique Curves.
Had a great dance concert last night. The girls did OK. I had bought the tickets online and thought we were in the upper level, however I mucked up and had purchased the tickets 4 rows from the front. The girls could see us so each time they looked over they got an attack of the giggles. Miss A received a trophy for full attendance this replaces the previous medal system. Previously a medal was presented gold for 100% attendance, silver for missing 1 class and bronze for missing 2 for the whole year. Miss S received a medal for encouragement, in previous years she would have also received a silver medal. I don’t think she minds the change as her trophy shelf is pretty full. I must add Mr M made the comment that he deserved the trophy for full attendance as he walked Miss A to class every week after school. That gave me a giggle.
Must get a wriggle on with those birthday cards whilst the boys are at basketball.
Thanks for stopping.
Some more Christmas to link to Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge
I made these cards at the same time as I made the gift tags (see earlier post Chrissy tags).
I used the same inks and the stamp sets used are PTI Polka Dot Parade #9, Holiday Cheer and Communique Curves. The twine is from WRMK.
Off to the girls Dance Concert tonight. Miss A is already home – claims a tummy ache – sitting eating a pie though. I think she just wanted to come home early to do her hair. What fun I am in for when she is a little older.
I have a few more Christmas makes to share. I promise I will post something other than Christmas before to long – just in case you are in Christmas overload already.
Thanks for visiting.
Hope you have a great weekend
Hi There. I got a little crafty time last week end – I know it is nearly the weekend again. I got round to taking a few pics earlier today which I will hopefully get to share over the next few days.
Today I am sharing a set of gift tags I made using a mix of sets. I am linking up to the challenge at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas
I used PTI Polka dot Parade #9, Holiday Cheer, Star Prints, Stocking Prints, Communique Curves, Kaisercraft Merry Christmas and My Cute Stamps Let it Snow. The tags were made by using the small strip left after I have cut A3 cardstock down to make my square cards then rounding the corners with my corner punch and punching a hole for the twine. I used SU Pretty in Pink, Tempting Truquoise, So Saffron, Certainly Celery and PTI Classic Kraft and Lavender Moon inks to stamp the images. The twine is Blossom and mint.
Here are individual images
a little pink

I used Uniko Background builders Round in Circles stamped using Stampin UP! Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray and PTI Enchanted Evening to create my card front. I stamped the sentiment from Uniko Fontiments Birthday ( I did a little surgery on one of the stamps to get the “your”) in Momento Tuxedo Black.
A little different to most of my other posts lately. I do need to get a few birthday cards ready – I have several birthdays before the jolly man arrives. Earlier today I went window shopping at a Christmas store – the trees and decorations were amazing – some inspiration for some more Christmas cards I think.
