ITS ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS

 Good morning today I have 3 DT cards to share with you all, due to continued problems with my internet connection I have decided to post my December KERST/CHRISTMAS DT cards in one post.
If you have a FACEBOOK A/C and would like to join us please click on the link below.
The prizes are amazing 

PRIZES TO BE WON





My first card features an image, sentiment and papers from one of our sponsors 
I added snowflakes and coloured the image with Nuvo markers, I also added glitter at the bottom of the card
I would like to enter my card into the challenges at

My next two cards showcases the TUTTI FRUTTI DIES that we, the DT, were kindly sent they are so very detailed and cut wonderfully
For my first card I went with the colour combo black and bronze I added a strip of glitter down the side and pearl drops in the centre of the snowflakes


For my second card I used a glitter background card added some snowflakes a sentiment and a Father Christmas with Reindeer I also added sparkle into the windows 


Due to the bad weather and poor state of the roads I have not been out for the last 4 days so have been unable to make any cards which has driven me even more insane, with such a bad internet connection I haven't been able to do much computer work either 
Apologies for moaning so much it's all I seem to do these days, however, I am hoping to be back with my other DT cards for the rest of the month but in case things go wrong I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, I also want to thank you for your support throughout, what has been, a very difficult year for me.

Thank you so much for your comments on my previous posts, my brother had to see the nurse today to check his stitches and everything seems to be ok, Bella is settling in nicely but is quite a handful, she is such a joy and funny at times and she is a quick learner 

Tomorrow I will not be battling the poor internet connection but having a quiet day I will be visiting my mums grave as it is her birthday on 16th November she would have been 103, I still can't seem to grasp the fact that she has gone and feel numb about a lot of things, I talk to her most days and hope that she can hear me, we would always have arranged to go out on her special day but the last couple of years she received visitors as she could not go out

My mum and Jess 




I hope to be able to visit sometime this week take care and stay safe

I'M LATE FOR AN IMPORTANT DATE

 I have rather a long belated post today, I missed posting my Allsorts and We Love Stamping DT cards last week, the reason being..... 

My brother finally got a hospital appointment for his hip replacement operation so I went to stay at mums until he returned home I had Jess and the house to look after but unfortunately I lost internet just for a change, lol.

My partner Dave bought a puppy while I was away she will be living with us in our new bungalow her name is Bella and she is a 12 week old King Charles, a bit of a handful, I am not sure if I can manage a puppy but Dave is totally in love and will be doing most of the work but I have started her training.

So without further ado this is my ALLSORTS DT card for this week the theme is Anything Goes with the option of adding a number I have gone for the Anything Goes option, I have used this lovely card fold the papers are actually card I added a Christmas topper, bow and gold stars.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

PEARLY SPARKLES - MERRY CHRISTMAS

CRAFTY CALENDAR - A/GOES

613 AVENUE - A/GOES option FANCY FOLDS

POLKA DOODLES - A/GOES

CHRISTMAS

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


Simple as that, any type of Christmas creation which as always must have hand stamping (or digital) to reflect the theme as the focal element of your workWe still see a few regular entries with just a stamped sentiment on an otherwise non stamped piece of work, these entries are not eligible and in future will be removed.

Before I tell you about this months prize, we are really happy to introduce two new Design Team members Maxine and Faith, please join me in giving them a warm welcome to the team.
