About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Joanna Sheen challenge and card No 13 for Beccy's Place challenge

Challenge at Joanna Sheen is food for thought

I will also enter this as my 13th card on Becky's Place - A Month of Holiday cards

and enter in Crafty Hazelnut's Monthly Christmas challenge - anything goes

I was very lucky last month to win the Joanna Sheen blog candy which was the lovely Joanna Sheen Christmas Holly Pond Hill CD

I have layered 2 papers from Kaiser Craft 6" paper pad "Dear Santa collection" onto red card.  Have printed out the image and sentiment from the Christmas Holly Pond Hill CD and layered onto papers.

There are lots of lovely images on the CD which you can buy from Joanna Sheen's online shop.

I made this and the last 3 cards today as I am home on my own.  Tony went to Lynda's to pick up my craft  bag and his tools he couldn't fit in the car coming home yesterday.

We went to Lynda's yesterday to help her put up her Christmas lights.  Sarah and Timmy went to Lynda's in the train but we took them home as I had boxes of my Christmas decorations and Christmas tree to give them.
I don't put them up at home now that everyone has moved out as we go to either Lynda's or Angela's for Christmas.

Angela, Graham, Emily and Brianna and Emily's friends Chloe and Bridget (twins) came down also.  Graham came in the train as there wasn't room for all of them in the car.  Chloe lives with Angela  and Bridget spends a lot of time there.  Their mother is very ill in hospital and not expected to live long.    Bridget lived with Angela for a couple months, but as Angela's house is only small she is now living with a friend of her mothers.

Brianna wanted to make some more Christmas cards so I took some craft supplies with me and she made some more cards.

One of Graham's friends also came to help and he took a family photo for us.  I am the shortest in the family (except for Brianna aged 5)

An adorable card. I love the Joanna sheen Cd roms. The quality of them is exceptional. I loved your previous card too with the girls on the sledge. Beautifully coloured. Thank you for joining in at Crafty Hazelnuts Extra this month. Hugs Mrs A. (GDT).
