Wishing You All... A Very Happy and Peaceful Christmas!

Hi all,
Sorry I've not posted for ages. I was hoping to put some Christmas Cards on my blog, but came down with a bad virus a couple of weeks ago. I'm well on the mend now though :-) 

The presents are wrapped, and we're stocked up with yummy food... so think we're all ready for the big day! My daughter is here with Mum and I for a few days. So we're looking forward to watching some nice programmes on TV and relaxing.

I just wanted to say big Thank You to all my lovely friends and followers!
Hope you and your families have a very
Happy, Healthy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year!

Lots of Love and Huge Hugs,

MAWTT - Christmas Scenes

 Hello again... I'm back with...

our lovely Jan is hosting this week....
and she wants to see any creation using.....

 'Christmas Scene/s' 

I've been very short on time this year, so I've only managed to make a few Christmas Cards. I used CraftUPrint Sheets The Winter Scenes Bumper Kit by Julie Hutchings. This is a fab kit and great value as you get 8 winter scenes. Each sheet has extra flowers for decoupage. I've layered the flowers and added some red nailheads for berries and some Star Dust Stickles.

We hope you will have fun and enter the challenge.... and remember you can enter up to three times, but please no backlinking.
Closing date is 1pm GMT 21st December 2016

I'm sorry that I've not been around very much... mum and I have had loads of appointments this last month. Time sure does fly when you are back and forth to doctors and hospital !! I think maybe I need to invest in some shares with our local taxi firm!

Thanks for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them! I will try and catch up with everyone over the next few days.
Love and hugs

Bugaboo - Gift Tag with Red/White Stripes

Hello to all, 

as my life is quite chaotic at the moment... it seems quite apt to join in with the Bugaboo Holiday Chaos!

 I managed to squeeze in a wee bit of crafting between appointments.

This is for the following challenge:

Sentiment - Pink Petticoat
Paper - Design House Digital

Huge Thank You to my lovely Crafting Buddies Janice and Hazel... who urged me to join in the Bugaboo challenge. I really enjoyed colouring Santa and it's just what I needed to unwind!! there are lots of sparkles on Santa's fur trims but it doesn't show up in photo which is shame. I'm pleased with how these tags came out considering I made them up as I went along!! 

Thanks for visiting!
I'll be back tomorrow morning with my creation for MAWTT.
Love and Hugs

Sorry I'm not around very much. Mum's health is very up and down at the moment. Also, I have a chest infection and flare up of muscular problems on top of my normal pain levels.  I'm ok but haven't been able to craft very much. I managed to put this quick card together right at the last minute.
I can't believe how quickly time is flying by... hard to believe it's only 45 sleeps to Christmas.

Only seven couples left in Strictly now! can't wait for Blackpool. I've been enjoying the Autumn tv... so many fab things on this year... Loved Victoria, Poldark,  Tutenkhamun!! :-))
Hope you are all doing ok?
I will hopefully get around to visit you all very soon!
Love and Hugs,

MAWTT - Trees and Leaves

 Hello, and Good Morning! it's Team's B's turn once again over at...

my lovely blogging teamie Jessie is hosting this week and she's chosen a fab theme of...

   Trees and/or Leaves   

Autumn is my favourite time of year,... not sure that I could live in a country without seasons? I agree with that old adage Variety is the Spice of Life.

I didn't think I was gonna be able to make a card in time for this challenge. Time slipped away from me... and mum hasn't been too well... suddenly realised the challenge was in few days time!

 I managed to find this sweet Autumn image that I bought a while back and haven't used yet. I've also used one of my favourite leaf digital papers and sentiments which were freebies with magazine long, long time ago. I've paper pieced her hat and trousers. I struggled with the colouring as I'm out of practice... this was my second attempt... didn't have time for a third! I'd run out of brown flowers! :-( need to order some more supplies! but I thought this pinwheel worked quite well... the colour seems to tone better in real life. It kinda reminds me of an umbrella? (but that could just be my weird I might try a brown flower when I get some in, and see if it looks better.

Paper and Sentiment - free with magazine long time ago

Can't believe how quickly time is passing by, and it really is feeling Autumny now. I'm enjoying getting cosy in the evenings though, and loving all the fab tv. Victoria was awesome! SO glad that they have commissioned a second series of it... something nice to look forward to next year! I'm enjoying Strictly too... but so much controversy this year! no idea who will win this time.
Thanks for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them!
Will catch up with you all soon!
Love and hugs
