Merry Christmas…

Hi there

I wanted to pop in and wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas and a wonderful start to 2014.


I used SU patterned paper, ink and ABS A Boy’s Party to decorate this money card for a nephew who is having a birthday in January.



I used a circle punch to cut an insert for the $

I got the idea here on the web – not sure of original person to credit  – Thank you if it was you 🙂


I am linking this up to the challenge at Annabelle Stamps – I have taken inspiration from the colours


Andrea has a great sale on at the moment too.

Here are a few other things I have been up to since my last post

Christmas Bon Bons

for Book club/walking friends dinner tonight


Made using SU Winter Frost DSP, envelope punch board, scallop circle punch and SU Delightful Decorations.

A few yummy treats


Chocolate Christmas tree decorated with M&M’s (I used a silicone mold from Dline) before I sent this one to the recipient I added some Favourite chocolates around the base of the tree and wrapped in celophane.


Christmas Sleigh and Reindeer




again I have silicone mold from the Chef’s Toolbox

I have several of these yet to be assembled (for gifts on Christmas day) and a gingerbread house (again I use a mold)

This is last years Gingerbread House


I will be taking a little break over the summer.

Stay safe.




The Alley Way Stamp Challenge #9 – Circus Tent

I recently came across this blog – the stamps are so cute – thought I would have a go at the latest challenge. The colours in the challenge are so bright. I don’t have any stamp sets from The Alley Way yet – oh that wishlist of mine isn’t getting any shorter! I did grab a free digital stamp Circus Tent to do this challenge.  I printed the image onto coloured card stock from my stack and paper pierced my tents together. I used the SU Embossing folder square lattice to give some texture so the tent top and sides. I used a strip of SU Big Top Birthday DSP along the bottom of the card. I also printed a sentiment from TAWS and made it into a banner.

I need to make a few cards fit for a 13 year old – one of my children has come home with 3 separate invitations this week.

Can you tell it is sunny in Melbourne today – just noticed I have a shadow behind the banner! Love days like today.

Hope you are having a great week.

Thanks for stopping by – I love reading your lovely comments – even if I don’t always reply I appreciate your efforts.
