Quick Break

Hi All I've been on a quick break up the coast........ soooooo nice and relaxing - Just what I needed!!!

No shopping, no cleaning, no running around, just a whole bunch of nothingness!!!

I hope you get a chance to relax this Christmas holidays.

Just add Sparkle!

This week over at Just Add Ink the challenge is to add Sparkle to your creation!

As you can see by my card I might have gone a little OTT with the sparkle - I've used Glitter Glass, Iridescent Ice and Rhinestones!!!

I've also used the December sketch over at The Stamp Spot -

If you want any details about this card just shoot me an email!

Twine flowers

I was having a play around with twine and came up with these cute twine flowers!
So I decided to use them on this card using the Stamp Spot December sketch for inspiration.

If you'd like to see a little tutorial on how I made the twine flowers just pop over to my post here at The Stamp Spot blog.
I've used:
-Naturals Ivory, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette and
Webster's Page - Sweet seasonInk - Craft and Crumb Cake
Stamp Set - Flower Fusion #6 by Papertrey Ink
Other: Doily punch (Martha Stewart), Pearls, Washi Tape, Twine and Ruffled satin ribbon from The Stamp Spot.

Here is the December sketch  (but I flipped it on it's side!)

Goodness it's been a while since I've posted here!!  Sorry :( time seems to have just flown by.

The craft and collectables fair went well (not as good as the one at the beginning of the year) but I'm happy that I got to show off some of the cool Christmas tags you can make with Stampin UP! products.  The little tags I made up just flew out the door!

I haven't been crafting much since then as my mind has been focused on the day job, Christmas and all the dinners, drinks and parties that come with it!!!
I just love this time of year but it doesn't leave much time for crafting unfortunately!!

I saw this great sign outside of Lorna Jane yesterday - love it!

Hopefully I might get some crafting done soon so I'll have something to show you!
In the mean time I do have post over at The Stamp Spot today showing you some ideas on how to use Washi Tape, so pop over and check it out.

I hope you are all enjoying your December!
