New Home Card

Well so much for posting every week this year.  Then thought seeing as it was half term would post every day this week...didn't happen either.  I have however got my card making mojo back and been busy making the last few weeks, just haven't posted any.  I will share this one made for this week's card challenge, not sure if I'll be able to keep this up as start work on least until Easter.  Only drawback this week is that Matthew found out he faces possible redundancy.

Well here's my card...

The stamped image was a magazine freebie coloured with promakers.  The punched mat was made using one of my Martha Stewart round the page punch sets.  Papers and flowers from my vast stash (didn't realise quite how much I've accummulated).

I'm entering this in
Scrapbook Sisters - New Home challenge
Paper Pretties - Flowers

Christmas scrapbook page challenge

This is my layout for the Christmas page challenge at Scrapbook Sisters.

The papers, ribbon, brad and sticker are all DCWV from a christmas set which has been in my stash for some time.  The borders are a Martha Stewart punch.  The frame is hand stitched with buttons added from my stash.  All matted on black and grey cardstock.

New Year Resolution

Here goes with my first post of 2012 which is my New Year Resolution.  Not a good start as I intended to post at least once a week on my blog this year, and I've already missed the first week.  Let's hope this is the beginning of sticking to it from now on.  
My collection of dreaded brown paper bags or UFO's is slowly getting less.  This is partly due to having turned Adam's old room into a craft room and sorting through my craft collection (some interesting and forgotten finds, so far) and also due to finishing layouts and projects from previous mentioned brown bags.  So plenty to photograph and blog about.  Have also finished my 3 cards for Scrapbook Sisters Design team challenge.

Below is are some photos of the only Christmas cards made and sent this year.

 The first two sets were made using photos taken of my youngest son, Adam and free papers from various magazines.  The penguin card was made using  a selection of Craftwork Cards products.  The penguin topper was coloured in with Promarkers with stickles added for a touch of sparkle.
