Hommage To Dawn...

One of our fellow demonstrators Dawn set the crafting marathon off with a version of a stationery box she had made just before Christmas. Well here is our version, using the new Harlequin Rose stamps from Elusive Images. I'm going to put a set of stationery items inside but as yet the stamps are not released so we will have to wait and see.
Thanks for Looking - more tomorrow

Im so excited!

Why? well today is the official start to my 'me time crafting space' My friend Siggy is as I speak travelling from Kent and we are aiming for a crafting marathon. I even ventured into my hiding hole where I keep my secret stash of specialness and have brought out some gorgeous papers and stamps. Perhaps I need to attend a paper stroking clinic!!Hopefully we will be able to upload some of our creations.
I also wanted to say thankyou to all who have blog read, blog commented and blog encouraged over the past few months since I started, and to those ladies who have attended workshops thank you for your continued enthusiasm. Here's to a New Year with the prospect of even more exciting goodies.

The Faerie and the Unicorn

If you're still looking for the unicorn she's on the front of the boxed card guarding the entrance. The stamps are from Elusive Images and the castle was cut from the paper dolls cricut cartridge and layered up and them glimmer misted.
I keep promising myself that tomorrow I will make the family christmas cards but like tomorrow they never quite appear!!! It's a good job we're still in the season of Advent - a time of preparation - there's plenty to do
Happy Advent

Snowy Play Days

Well what a day - I was woken up at 4.30pm by a snoring husband who was so obviously enjoying his sleep that he insisted on sharing it with the whole house. Unable to go back to sleep I sat and watched the snow fall - it was so peaceful until the dog decided it wanted to play snowball fights at 6.30am !!
That was it I had gone passed a set of stamps and a cricut machine. It had to be done, I could watch the snow and play. Here is something I put together for Graphicus Open Day tomorrow (a sneeky peek)I used Joys of The Season cricut cartridge
Looking forward to seeing you there
