Papertrey Ink Christmas Make And Take

I have had such a wonderful weekend and wanted to share a few pictures with you...

Shaz and Sue...
Jo and Kim...
Katrina and Gemma...
Amanda, me and Fiona....
The girls and I enjoying a well deserved £100 bottle of Vintage Dom Perignon later that evening...

I can't thank Kate, Caryn and Aimes enough for all their hard work, it was an absolute joy from start to end and I treated them to a well earned showing of New Moon in the Gallery at Bluewater on Sunday.

I couldn't have asked for a better bunch of people to share a crafty afternoon with, thank you all for making the day so enjoyable for me and also for the many completely unexpected gifts and cards *mwah*

A Little Sweet Surprise

As you can see, I'm still playing catch up with my summer images, I'm guessing I'll be starting my Christmas cards around Easter time ;)

I hope you have a fantastic weekend and do keep an eye out for my quick Christmas giveaway :) x

Have A Sweet Day

I have a very sweet tooth and ice-cream is one of my major weaknesses, along with chocolate and cake and of course cookies ;)

Can you believe the weekend is upon us already?  Dean's back tonight and I can't wait to see him, the children and I  have really missed him...he doesn't need to know that though haha! x

Just Because

This sweet image was an absolute delight to colour and I adore these Cosmo Cricket papers...

Dean wants us to visit New York between Christmas and New Year but the thought of being so far away from the children makes me anxious.  I genuinely don't think I'm capable of going without them and they are still too young to appreciate such a wonderful city...maybe next year :) x

You're So Sweet

I can't stop layering buttons on top of flowers and then onto ribbon, I think it makes such a pretty embellishment...

Dean's attending a 'Directors Strategic Thinking Workshop' today *eye roll* and won't be returning until Friday.  I hate being home alone so my wonderful Mother is coming to say, it will be nice having someone wait on me hand and foot haha :) x

Happy Birthday To You

I made this card for my friend's daughter Molly...

Hope you have a great day and thank you for looking in on me :) x

Wishing You Peace Love & Joy

I've been having a little play with the Whiff of Joy Winter Set, I love colouring these wonderful images...

We're driving into London today and will be taking a boat trip on the River Thames.  The children love public transport so we'll be indulging them by riding the bus, going on the underground train and even taking a black taxi, not my idea of fun at all haha!  Hope you have a great weekend :) x

Holiday Wishes To You And Yours

It's a Kraftin Kimmie Kristmas!  I was in the mood to alliterate so please excuse my deliberate spelling error haha

I'm so jealous of those of you attending the NEC Craft Show in Birmingham and begrudgingly hope you all have a fantastic time ;) x

Merry Christmas And Happy New Year

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas to me and I'm getting giddy at the thought!

I can't cook and Dean won't so last year we took the extended family to a restaurant for Christmas dinner which wasn't great :(  This year we're investigating caterers who deliver Christmas dinner on the day, fingers crossed it's good! x
