Saint Nicholas

Whiff of Joy Saint Nicholas (2)

Good Morning. Hope you are all well and almost ready for Christmas…..I’m getting there. My decorations have been up since the first, my cards are on their way and most of my shopping is done and wrapped, just waiting for a few more parcels to arrive in the post. I have even been helping Hubby buy my presents *Wink Wink* I found him links to some much needed Copics and Dies ;-)

Anyhoo, enough waffle, over at the Whiff of Joy Blog we are showing Christmas inspiration and today is my turn. I’ve decided to make a traditional coloured Christmas card using the fabulous Saint Nicholas stamp from the Winter Secret Stamp Kit.

Chloe with Poinsettia

Afternoon all…..long time no see! I think I’m just about ready to get crafting again but what with the lead up to Christmas it might be the new year before I get back into full swing.

Anyhoo, I’m here to share my card for the new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge. We are having a special 4 week challenge so that we can all have a little break over the festive period. If you fancy joining us the theme is:

Anything Christmas

Here is my card using the gorgeous Poppy with Poinsettias:

Flamingo Thank You

Morning all. Sorry I have not been the greatest blogger over the last couple of months. My health hasn’t been to great and after trudging on with day to day life blogging has been one of the things to take a back seat and to be honest apart from some colouring in I haven’t really felt like doing a whole lot of crafting either. Plus I have been feeling so cold lately that a little colouring in is the easiest thing to do when sat huddled on the sofa under jumpers and blankets (and a hot water bottle too)…think I need a holiday in the sun.

Anyhoo, enough waffle, it’s my turn over on the Sarah Hurley 365 blog today and I’m sharing a thank you card.

Here is a sneak peak
