I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and got lots of scrummy crafty things!
( I am scheduling so I can't tell you how my day went!)
This card is for my nephew I found these fab personalised dog tags a little while back and knew it be a great way to personalise a card!
This card came together very quickly which was lucky as I found I had a few to make in a very short time (made this one before Christmas)
The stamp is from Sugar Nellie called 'Rockstar'
Stamps: Sugar Nellie 'rockstar', Studio G 'boy and star'
DP:FancyPants 'Papa' ~ Brave
Embellishments: Dog tag from Woollen Mill shop
Thanks for dropping by and hope you are all enjoying this special time of year!

I thought this gorgeous stamp from Sugar Nellie would make a perfect Anniversary card for my DH....ssshh, don't tell him!
It is designed by Leanne Ellis and called 'Luvvie', how appropriate!
As it is a masculine card and particularly because my DH doesn't like ribbons, bows or flowers on his cards I have kept it fairly simple.
The quote isn't showing well in the photograph but it says
'The highest happiness on earth is in marriage'

Supplies: Stamps: Sugar Nellie 'Luvvie', Studio G heart stamp
DP: Basic Grey 'Recess' Biology and Elementary
Embellishments: Rik rak from stash, heart charm from Sugar Nellie, buttons from RAK from Debbie

Wish !

My first guest DT card for Sugar Nellie! This stamp is called Wish designed by Leanne Ellis. I think she has an old fashioned look about her so wanted a distressed look.
She is painted with watercolours and I added another layer of letters to give a 3d effect.
Now, hope to get started on another one!! I have been out shopping this morning for non-perishables and the panic is setting in....if I don't buy everything in the supermarket we will run out of food on Christmas Day!!!
today is the last challenge of the year over on Cute Card thursday, you can make anything you like it is an open theme and there is a fab stamp to be won.
I have to thank Andrea for running CCT on her own these past few months, I will be back on January 8th with the first CCT challenge of the new year, hope to see you there!
Supplies: Stamps ~ Sugar Nellie 'Wish' designed by Leanne Ellis
DP : K & Co blue awning
Embellishments : Prima flowers, Brads, eyelets and ribbon from stash, charm hearts from RAK

snowman soup

Made 3 very quick Snowman Soups today for teacher pressies. Can't believe it almost end of term again! I simply covered a disposable coffee cup and add decoration. Made a little bag for marshmallows and popped a lovely chocolate stick through the top and added a label and ribbon.
and now for the good new Sugar Nellies arrived today in my DT package, woohoo!
Couldn't wait and inked them all up. I completed a card but it was too dark to photograph so I will add it here tomorrow afternoon. Now I am itching to make my next one! Hopefully I will get another couple of cards made before I have to stop to concentrate on the festivities! I have suddenly got the crafting bug again....what timing!
Hope your festive preparations are on track, thanks for dropping by!

This card fits perfectly into the Basic Grey challenge as I used my Infuse papers and added some little heart charms.
Supplies :Rubber stamp: Sugar Nellie 'carefree', coloured with watercolours and distress ink, inside card studio G stamp
DP ~ Basic Grey 'Infuse'
Embellishments ~ Prma flowers, rub ons, pearls and charms from stash

Short Trip

Guess where I was last week?
The Brandenburg GateDH and I went to Berlin for a couple of days. Kids stayed home with Nana but I will take them one day as they would love the Christmas market. We left on saturday morning which was Saint Nicholas Day and as we left the hotel we found a lovely little goodie bag hanging on the door handle! I have to say the Gluhwein was rather nice too!


I was given this gorgeous award from Bernie, thanks so much, I so appreciate that you remembered me considering I have been missing so much lately! Promise to do better in the New Year!
I am just about on track now although way behind with my christmas cards so hopefully will be showing some more cards soon, should have one made up by this afternoon!

Sprinkled with fun!

A quick post, so busy this week!
This is the card I made last week but couldn't show until today. Just love this Bella and the fun sentiment!
Think the papers are DCWV Xmas stack, flowers are Primas and the little cupcake is a See D's tiny stamp from a set.
Have a great week and thanks for your visit!
