Let It Snow

Happy Wednesday.
I have a quick card to share today,
I was chuffed to bits when my "box of Cards" got shown on Create & Craft.

Here's one of the real simple cards,
I admit, this is not my usual style, but I really love this card &
this may be one that I do a few repeats for Christmas.

I cut 3 of the trees, embossed them all and layered them up and machine stitched them onto the card.
Simple but effective.

I have used Raspberry Road ~ Naughty or Nice Papers

Thanks for your lovely comments
Enjoy the rest of your day

LOTV Sneak Peek ~ James, Christmas Tree & an update on Daisy


Good Morning,
 Thank you for your lovely comments about my new DT position yesterday,
I'm so happy that my cards got shown on create & Craft.
  I have some more to show you through the week.

I have an LOTV sneak peek to share today.
As always the new stamps are all just so sweet.

Today the DT are starting to share some sneaky peeks
 leading up to the launch of the second part of our 2013 Christmas collection on August 25th

There are 20 gorgeous stamps and it’s a mixture of cute characters and traditional images
We have some more Jack, Patch and Puss 
who you loved when we introduced them earlier this year  
 …and we’re also welcoming back our very popular James the Bear!

I have used the adorable. . . 
James with Christmas Tree.

Thank You so much for popping by,
and make sure you visit the rest of the girl's blog


Just a quick update on Daisy.
She seems a fair bit happier than when we first got her,
but she's still extremely nervous.
Most of the time she allows us to stroke her head (although she's very wary)
and she occasionally still hisses at me, lol

Here's some pics of her taking it out on her new scratching post

and one more, showing us how pretty she is

Some Exciting news.

Hi, hope you are all enjoying the cooler weather we have been having.
I, for one, prefer it to the recent heatwave.

Recently I was asked by Leann Chivers from Crafter's Companion
if I would like to join their Die'sire DT
of course I jumped at the chance, but saddly something had to give,
so I'm saying goodbye to Noor DT & Dieing for a Sketch Challenge blog.
I'd just like to say a huge thank you to Jolanda & Dunja.

I have made a few Christmas card sample using the 

I must admit I found it a bit daunting at first not using an image,
Because these samples "may" appear on Create & Craft over the next 4 days
I needed to showcase the dies & folders.
But once I got in the swing of thing's I think 
I found a way to use them, whilst still sticking to my own style.

Thanks for looking,
I'll be back very soon with a sneak peek for LOTV

MDUC DT ~ Distressing & A new addition to our house.

Hello, hope you are all well, 
This week at MDUC it is my choice of theme, 
and I've stuck with an all time favourite . . .

DISTRESSING
All my products are available at Sir Stampalot

Today we picked up a new addition ,
Daisy, a 2 year old female marbled Bengal,
She's very shy & it will take a bit of patience before she feels at home.
We got her from a specialised breeder,
but because she had no surviving litters, she has taken early retirement.
Fletch doesn't quite know what to make of her, so we need to introduce them slowly.
We let him have a quick look and he was shaking from head to toe, bless him.

I'll pop some more pictures on as she becomes a little more adjusted.

Thanks for popping by
