I thought that you might like to see the Spider-Man punch art card
 that Chris made for her grandson's birthday,
Leo really likes Spider-Man, so will have loved this!

Great card Chris!

Today's my birthday

Hello everyone, today it's my birthday, so instead of me showing you cards that I have made,
I will show you the cards that I have received, some bought and some hand made, but all
very precious to me.  Thank you everyone, for remembering me today.

decided to follow it up with a Christmas themed workshop.
Here's the gift bag that will hold the Christmas cards.

The sentiment banner is from Time of Year hostess stamp set.
The snowflake from Flurry of Wishes.The trees are die cut using the Thinlits that match the Thoughtful Branches stamp set, in White and Silver Glimmer paper.
Simple colour combo in White and Night of Navy.
Luv it!!

My just in case I forget card!

I wanted to make sure that if by chance I forget someone's birthday, I would have
a card ready made , that I could simply write on and pop in the post.
Here's what I came up with using the beautiful Blooms and Bliss DSP , Crumb Cake card, 
the Vertical Greetings stamp set and a retired sentiment ,
 the only belated greeting that I own would you believe!)

Now, even if I forget the date, I can post off this card the next day!!
I really hope that I don't need it, but at least I'm prepared!

Christmas Crafting with Chris - Santa's Sleigh

Here's a card that I made earlier this month when Chris and I managed to get together 
and do some Christmas crafting.  We are getting a few more Christmas projects made now,
and here's one of the more time consuming projects she found for us to make.

Card fully open showing double Z fold.

Card folded flat ready for posting

We just used the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits dies for this card, with a colour combo
of Crumb Cake, White, Silver and Gold, and the Softly Falling  embossing folder.
Love it!!
