Happy Christmas

Hi everyone,

Just a quick one from me today to wish all my lovely bloggy buddies a very Happy Christmas and a crafty New Year.

Here's a Christmas card just for you featuring my cat playing the part of the fairy on top of the tree.....actually to be fair she has been good with the tree but at 10 years of age I expect a little more ladylike behaviour now!!









Hope you like it

So we'd love to see your mixed media creations based on this colour scheme, this lends itself to something nice and Wintery and that's what I've gone for.
It's surprisingly an easy colour palette to work with and it's good that it manages to drag me away from the overuse of all things green!

Thank you

Hi everyone,

A big thanks to all you wonderful ladies out there who took the time and trouble to leave me such lovely comments after my last post.

I'm still adjusting to it all and of course it's going to be a struggle, always will be I suppose, good and bad days.

I've had to give myself a big kick to get back into blogging, if I left it much longer I thought I'd never return, especially as I have various DT commitments that need fulfilling.

Speaking of which, there's a new challenge over at That's Crafty and this fortnights theme is: Seasons Greetings. If you enter you could win a lovely £20 voucher just in time for some Christmas treats for yourself of course.

Here's my tag for this challenge using  Katzelkraft stamps.
