Lovely lovely Lilies

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well I have a LOTV card for you tonight I brought these last week, I tried to resist as long as I could but............well ya know how it goes lol.
Tonights card is a shaped card, the image I coloured up a few days ago just before kiddo's got poorly.

I fancied a break from making crimbo cards.........will be glad when they are all done tbh lol. When I popped to my fabby DT buddy Claire's blog to see her LOTV creation I saw their challenge which is 'Anything But A Christmas Card'..........well it was meant to

I used my Grand Calibur to make the shape of the card, it was hidden in the corner & been neglected!!
I have used Pink shimmer A4 card for the base.

I think all the flowers are from WOC, the leaf die is a Magnolia Doohickey

The beautiful image is 'Lovely Lilies', she has been coloured with Copics.........sorry about the sky its not showing up very well on the piccy!!

The paper is Websters Pages. The lace is from my stash. The butterfly is a punch & I've heat embossed it with mothers day pink powder & added a few pink gems to the body. The sentiment is also LOTV which you can get here...........I love their can never have too many neither lol.

Well thats it I'm off to do a LOT of catching up thanks to my internet connection being lost tonight so couldnt get online at all :0( Hubster fixed it tho bless him....

Thank you so much for stopping by I really appreciate it so much.

A quick christmas card & my tree is up woooo hoooooo

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well its nearly the end of november, in the uk lol. Are you ready for crimbo? (crimbo means christmas I never put 'xmas' cus its an ugly word for such a beautiful time)
Anyway today I have my tree up it takes hours to do as each branch is individual & I'm a fussy bugga lol.
Anyway I've made a quickie card, flat for an envelope & to keep postage low as there are so many to send out............these simple ones kill me I tell ya lol.
Sorry for the piccies I didnt bother setting my stuff up
This is 'Let It Snow' by Sylvia Zet at Wee Stamps. This is the digi version. I love these images but always forget I have them.......

She is of course coloured with Copics but she's been coloured up for about a week & I cant remember the colours sorry peeps. I have added stardust stickles to her fur & the snow I used flock.
The papers I think are MME they are 12x12 papers from last year. The edges have been heat embossed with white & silver & then matted onto kraft card. Cut out a silver snowflake & added a poinsettia to the centre & few gems & thats it.
The card I just did for fun & to send out so its not for any challenges.

Yes here is my tree, I luuuurrrrvvvve my tree but I cannot get a decent piccy of it its so hard to photo.
These do not do it justice but never mind lol I'm getting into the crimbo spirit now lol.

We've put it up in the conservatory this year cus we do spend most of out time in there. Jake normally has the living room for him & his mates play on the xbox lol.

Well thats enough of my natter I will go now. I will hopefully be back tomorrow with a card that is more me............psst sorry about tonights card.
Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it.

Sorry for being MIA.....I'm Back with BARGAINS!!!!

Hello my lovelies how are you all? I'm so sorry I've been missing in action the last few days & not been around to see you I have had ill kiddo's. Natalie had a really bad seizure so she has been really ill, I had time send a quick e-mail yesterday & thats it........I even missed Krista's sale at Saturated Canary :0( I wanted all the ones I didnt have....... but kiddies come first of course. Anyway she is a lot better now thank goodness & is lying with her quilt over her watching princess diaries.........her favefilm. Also my son has not been well & we ended up taking him the docs, he was out playing football on sunday night with his friend & fell over & banged his chest...........yep cracked ribs!!!!!! So he is VERY sore at the mo & off school......if anyone gonna do anything it will be Jake lol.....

Anyway I also wanted to let you know about a couple of bargains I've found this morning.....ya know crimbo shopping.......these are not craft related tho peeps....
1st off if anyone has a teenage daughter who loves her brand names........what kid doesnt lol, mine all do.
Anyway I've been wanting to get Natalie the Superdry Windcheater Jacket with the pink writing they are between £55-£65 but I got an e-mail this morning from a shop we shop at sometimes & they are on special for £40 how fab is is the link
Now the next one is a disability shop which I've just found........Natalie is soooooo hard to buy for as altho she is 19 she has a mind of a 3 month old baby........anyway we decided to get her some new lights cus she luuurrrrvvvves lights of all kinds. She especially loves the Sensory Light System, they average about £400 & over to buy...........well I found an excellent shop which does some disablility toys & aids cheaper than others. The lights we have managed to get for Natalie were just £ brill is that here is the link if you know anyone who is disabled or anyone who just loves lights to be honest........I ended up getting a few things from there I was just so now me & Craig cant wait see Natalie's face at christmas cus she really does love these lights.........wooooo hoooooooo.

Well thats me signing out & hopping around to visit you. Sorry for the long post, we all love a bargain & I just wanted to share mine cus it could save you a few squid lol.........that means pounds for my friends over the pond........

Huge squishy hugs to all mmwah xoxoxoxox

May Joy Fill Your Home This Christmas

Hello my lovelies, how are you all? Do ya know I love crimbo but the lead up to it drives me insane there is always sooooo much to do & think of & with the baby due just after crimbo its all hands on deck making sure we have everything. Ben & Megan finally agreed on a pram so me & Craig can now get that ordered.........we are getting it straight from the manufacturer instead of Mothercare as I will get a free car seat for them worth £115 which also clips onto the pram.........hows that for a bargain!!!!

Anyhoo as time is rather limited & I have soooo many crimbo cards to do I thought I better make more simple ones with no colouring involved........

Simple & easy............not at all!!!!!!! These prove sooooo much harder for me cus I pansy around far too much trying so many different ways lol.

Now the idea behind these cards is that they will go into an envelope.........yes then Vicky goes & puts a big ruddy bow on it.............dont figure lol.... Yep I was at the back at the queue when they dished out brain cells..........tbh I dont even think I joined the queue........I would of been dancing around like a fairy somewhere lol.

Love this ribbon I got it from a shop on ebay with a load of others. I attached a blue poinsettia to the centre & then made a pretty pin from my jewellery stash to add a bit of bling.

The papers are from last year & I heat embossed all the edges with white & silver powder & matted onto kraft card. The sentiment is from here & I inserted it into this frame here which I got last year & cut them all out with my nesties, added a few blue gems & bobs your
Inside has been decorated simply.

Well I'm off to do some catching up with you all so I will see ya soonies.
Welcome to my new followers ((((waving madly like lunatic)))))))) lol.

Thank you soooo much for stopping by I really appreciate your time, even more this time of year as I know how busy we all are.
Squishy huggles to all xoxoxox
