More Christmas cards

 Hi All!  I am so behind in my Christmas cards and running out of time, I reckon I might be buying a pack of cards!! But hey ho, Im not going to stress about it.  So I've a couple of cards this evening using my MFT set which is great for CAS cards...

I added some gloss/glitter to their noses and went over their scarves with my glitter pen so it's nice and sparkly. I would have preferred to have used some white glitter card for my die cuts but think I've used it all up.  

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - anything goes

Time Out #201 - I went with the simplicity theme

CAS on Friday #219 - winter

I might go over the red bits in this, it looks Ike it could be darker now I see the pic.

SKetch Saturday #688

Global Design Project #319 - Christmas

Your Next Stamp #173 - sparkle and shine

I treated myself to yesterday off work and managed to make a good dent in my Christmas pressie shopping, no big bargains round Belfast though!  I was so pleased to make it to the art store and buy a new pencil - I just have to share the size of the little stub I'd been using (thank goodness for pencil extenders!)

And what's Miss Molly up to?  We had school again this morning and learned Lie Down and made a start on leash training - much needed as she's a complete maggot when we go out for a walk!

Double Christmas

Hi all!  Well we survived our first lesson at puppy school today and Molly was (mostly) a good girl and behaved herself.  Chicken is definitely the answer to everything LOL

I can hardly believe we're heading towards the end of November already, surely it's not a year since last Christmas!!!  My card stash is a bit pathetic so I need to crank up production considerably!  

This first one looks far nicer in real life but just wouldn't photograph properly.  My daylight lamp is stashed out of doggy reach and I was too lazy to go get it!

My bear is from MFT - lots of Sparkle added to the white bits of his scarf, hat and pressie.  I used some leftovers for the horizontal stripes.

LAyout from Your Next Stamp #172
As You Like It - dies or stencils - definitely dies for me, I especially LOVE my square dies, it just makes everything easier to assembly knowing they're all straight! 
Christmas Kickstart #56 - Christmas Snippets - I'm delighted to see that lovely Di from Pixies Crafty Workshop is this month's guest elf! 

Couldn't get a decent pic of this one either 😉. For some reason my sentiment looks rubbish here, you'll have to trust me they're better in real life!!  This is another MFT set, the dog is popped up on foam pads. Just remembered I haven't brushed off the excess glitter so doubtless it's all over the kitchen table now. 

Cut it Up #239 - CASE a Project - this is Andrea's beautiful card that inspired me, hers is a gazillion times better than mine!

What's Miss Molly up to?  Settling down for a snooze with a load of her toys - her ears droop when she's tired, sooooo cute!

A big Birthday

 Hi All!  Well that has been a few weeks of craziness! When Miss Molly is awake it's eyes on her 100% of the time as she doesn't know what to be at next LOL.  It's a bit easier now she's had her jabs and a couple of short walks every day help to tire the naughtiness out of her 😉. We're for Puppy School next weekend so that is sure to be interesting, hopefully we'll not end up in detention!

Meantime I've had zero mojo for card making, but I need to give myself a good boot up the derrière as I've still a load of Christmas cards and others for pressies to make.  And time is ticking on!  This one is for a friend of my Mum's, sorry for the rubbish pic...

I've used my fab die from MFT again, along with this cupcake stamp from Honey Doo Crafts (popped up on foam pads).  I added his age to the cupcake but it's a bit lost here, I think it pops a wee bit better in real life.

Addicted to Stamps #418 - birthday

Creatalicious #222 add some stars

Daisy Chain Challenge #58 Add sparkle (I added gloss/glitter to the icing and sprinkles)

And here's a wee photo of peace and quiet hahaha.  A typical pose with her head hanging out her bed sound asleep!
