Creative Challenge

My friend, Michelle, and I have decided that we need to encourage each other to be more creative and make more this year, so every fortnight, we’re going to post on our blogs an item we’ve made, we’re not specifying theme, colour, materials or anything like that, so it will be a nice surprise every fortnight! The link to Michelle's blog is
The first challenge will be posted on Tuesday the 4th January.
Check back then!

Green and Red Challenge Card

This is a card for Annabelle Stamps Blog
The stamp is Pressed Holly from Stampendous,
The greeting, inks, cardstock and DSP are
Old Olive and Real Red from Stampin Up.
Those colours just scream Christmas to me, so it had to be a Christmas card, I thought I had made all my cards for this year but hey ho it can always go in my Christmas box for next year, Tracey came up with the idea to make a Christmas card every Saturday so we are not rushing around just before Christmas, sounds like a plan really, hope we can keep it up!
Bye for now

Merry Christmas

Well what can I say it has been a strange year for us lots of downs but there has been some ups too, one of those is that I have a job, at last and I didn't even have to look for it, it came looking for me in the shape of my landlady Julia,
so I am now a letting consultant (sounds posher than it really is)
with Lets Express.
I have decided that I will update my blog every week as from now,
I know I keep promising it but I mean it this time, I think it will do me good,
I am always the one who likes to read what others are putting on theirs
and the first to moan when they haven't been updated.
I might even leave a few comments too.
 Meanwhile I have a couple of cards to show you.

Both have been made using SU cardstock but the paper is Anna Griffin from my 12x12 stash which I intend to use up this year before buying any new sheets, easier said than done I hear you say but think positive!

I am also going to be co-arranging the Ilkeston Dabblers with my good friend Lesley we hope to breathe a bit of life back into it so watch this space.
Another thing I want to try and do is take more pictures of anything and everything, I didn't get any pictures of this Christmas,
it hasn't really felt like Christmas to be honest but there is always next year!
Bye for now
