Christmas Postbox

 Good Afternoon Peeps,

    Well I have been absent for the past 13 days as we have been without the internet.  You don't realise how much you use it until it is no longer there and there are so many things you can't do.  Now it's a case of putting new passwords in everywhere and I will be round to catch up on my commenting as soon as I am sorted.

Anyway back to today and the start of a new challenge at Fab & Funky where this week our lovely Ginny is host with her choice of:

Die-cuts and Embossing only no stamped images

For my card I used an embossed backbround, a tonic die to create the Christmas post box and a Sue Wilson sentiment die, with a little glitter added here and there.

Do please check out the challenge blog to see the great creations by my teamies.
Have a good day!

Season's Greetings

 Good Morning Peeps,

Hope you are all having a good week.  We have had some really sunny days over the past week and luckily on my birthday last week it was a lovely sunny day and we spent the day at the coast, it was really warm and we sat by the sea eating fish and chips which do taste so much better outside by the sea.  Here’s hoping we still have a few more warm days before the cold sets in.

We have a new challenge starting today over on Fab'n'Funky where for the next two weeks our teamie Buffy has chosen the theme of:


I made quite a simple card using paper from the beautiful new Crafters Companion "Winter's Sparkle" pad.  I added Seasons's Greetings cut with a Sue Wilson die and a few extra snowflakes cut with a die from the "Winter's Sparkle" series and glittered with "Diamond Frost" though this doesn't show up too well in the photo.

Don't forget to take a look at the great creations by the DT on the challenge blog.

Have a good day!
