New Year Slider Card

I like making these now I have found a better way to make them slide. Forget coins and make a simple channel for the card to glide through it works so much better.

I used K & Co papers with Coredinations cardstock a bit of bling and the Celebrations cart for the hat.

Wow what a busy Christmas, I have cooked and entertained for England and now its time for a break. What better way than to make all those Thank You cards. I used New Arrival for those with K & Co Papers and Papermania Cardstock

Lucky me, Santa bought me a Cricut Jukebox so I intend to try that out asap. The New Year Cards will need that I think as I intend using several carts for those. Well I plugged it in and with many flashing lights I had a great result, fab toy for me yahoo. It is so cute and neat looking only problem is I need a wider table to fit both on so a little job for Gerry this year :-) New Year Cards are using same paper selection and Sotybook and Celebrations Carts and some Stickles and silk flowers

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and I want to thank the Tidworth Ladies for their lovely comments about my Blog, thanks girls see you in the New Year for a catch up.

These are just a fab idea I got them from the supermarket as stocking fillers and of course they must have our ababy in. Noah looks so cut in these. Ideal presents for Nannys and Great Nanny's. I like the tree bauble one its flat but holds 2 photo's, I want to try to get the ball ones next year

Christmas Bags and Stocking Fillers

I got these lovely plain red bags and they were just begging for a little Cricut help so here we go, great for lots of little gifts. One is for my grandson Noah and my daughters OH's little girl.
I also made a few little books to put in the stockings and some boxes for the jewellery I have made. These are really easy and quick to do but make wrapping a bit easier

Stocking fillers and tags

I have been making some tags and a few stocking fillers this week, I don't know where the time is going but I am way behind this year.

I also made a paint can for my sister, its the first one I have done, its not what I had imagined but I quite like it. I have put some cosmetics and sweeties in it

Deer for my Dear Daughter

I love these reindeer and wanted to use them for a card so who better than my dear daughter Emma.

Noahs Snowman Card

My daughter was very small when the Snowman film came out and I can't believe he is still going strong and I am now making a Snowman card for her son. I adore him so much and wanted to make a really special effort for his first Christmas. I had a load of free Snowman embellishments with a magazine so I wanted to use them as it seemed just perfect for a baby. I have managed to get a few techniques into this card and was going to add a Waterfall but I ran out of room!! I really enjoyed doing the slider for the front it works so much better than the previous ones I have tried. The pop ups are a nice feature I think all children love them I just hope they can stand the rigors of a 10 month old little boy :-)
