Its been a while but I have been Christmas creating!

Its been a MoJo less kinda week so I decided to play at following instructions, something I am not usually good at at all!

 This is page 58 of the Molly Blooms Christmas Carnival magazine - a Festive wallet to house vouchers or money.
Twas fiddly at times but i do love how its come together. Looking forward to playing with more projects out of the book this weekend!

I am entering this into the ABC Christmas challenge which is Helpers - as you can see Molly and George are helping Santa on his sleigh!

just a few more cos I am on a roll........

 This little cutie is another stamp from the Embsay sale - this cute image and 3 sentiments.  I have teamed this with some very very old papers by Basic Grey.
 she is such a cutie !
I then went on the make a card for Crafty Hazelnuts challenge this week which is Nativity.  This time I experimented with different skin tones to my usual choice - they look a little washed out on the picture..
But hopefully fits the challenge !

So I am still preparing!
Thanks for stopping by x

so the blog was neglected for while

So this little blog was neglected in the run up to Christmas as I posted my Christmas stuff on the main blog - but hey the Christmas preparations are back in full swing and I have made a few cards for some Facebook Challenges

 Here the theme was Glamour - this did not fit into any of my stamps but I found this in the sale bin at Embsay Mills for £2.43 - and its a wood one!
 a little paper piecing for the shopping bags and that was that.
 The second card is for the challenge following glamour which was to use gems.  I thought I would do a little upcycling for this one and cut down a Christmas card for the image - papermania Home for Christmas paper and a little ribbon and lace. 
Even the sentiment was stamped on the card at the back of the Christmas card so its been well and truly upcycled!

Hope you are having a great weekend - thanks for stopping by x
