WOYWW, A VERY LATE POST!

Hello my dear bloggy friends!

I am very late posting, but I have been to work, then my friend came and we made a wreath for my door (how late am I with that???????) and at 7pm I had an appointment at my dentist - huh an hour of drilling and then I finally managed to come home and take photos and do this very short post - yes I think it will be short! I have been very blessed this week! I got a parcel from Jo from Jozart and another one from Donna from Doings of Doone.....so here is Jo's lovely gift for me and one for my mom - a christmas treat triangle and it was full of treats!




Such lovely patchwork - I wish I could make stuff like that - Jo is a genius!!! She spoils me and now my mom too!
Then my lovely gift from Donna - she made me such a lovely book and also put some goodies in the parcel - have a look!Ah Donna you did make exactly the right "card" love it!!!





And here is my desk - I should have shown that first - sorry Julia, but I was distracted with my gifts!

Kitchen table desk.....very messy....





And this is my craft room desk with a card in the making.....


And here is my wreath - my friend brought some sticks which we made into a wreath and then as we found the ribbon with the deer in my stash I had to get out the TH deer flight die and here is what has been made - I like it very much......


I might add more to it and I might not - haven't decided yet! 
 Thats all folks on the crafty stuff ! On other good news my mom is finally home from the hospital and is doing well! I spent the last weekend at her place -setting her up to be on her own and she seems to be doing well! I wasn't very happy with the decision to leave her there on her own but she wanted to be at home so I gave in! So far so good! Fingers crossed it stays that way!
I am going to bed now, this has been a long day and a long post too, and I thought it would be a short one! HUH!
See you all tomorrow with my next card!
Have a lovely week, lots of hugs to all of you....

Winter wonderland!

Good morning my dear friends!

I am back with you and sharing another card! 


The stamp as you can see is a Crafty Individuals "Winter Wonderland" C-399, the background was blinged up with a fairly new product from Imagination Crafts called Sparkle Medium! You can use it with a stencil which I did and it is really a lovely sparkly addition to the card! I colored the girls with copic markers and the snowflakes are covered in TH Distress glitter in Broken China! I think the stamp is just such a cute one!
He, he I gave the girls red boots I wish I had some! :-) Who doesn't want red boots?????
Have a lovely day, keep crafting!
Lots of hugs,

Retro Christmas!

Good morning my dear friends!

As I promised I have a Christmas card a day for you to keep the panick away! 



Today I am going a bit retro! I used a load of different washi tapes, Tim Holzes die + stamp Santa Claus ( or Father Christmas as the English say) and holly - nothing really complicated but it does remind me of cards when I was a child - the colors are all a bit retro too...I hope you will be inspired!

Have a lovely day, and keep up the good crafty work!


Lots of hugs to all of you

Hello, I am still here!

My dear bloggy friends!

I am so sorry I have been neglecting you these days, there is just so much going on, especially with my mom in hospital and work and all sorts, I just can't keep up but I am travelling to my moms in an hour or so and she is coming home from hospital tomorrow - and I hope if all goes well I will have more time to blog and do crafty things! Mind you I have been making cards and I have made quite a lot so I decided to show a few today and then from Monday onwards a card a day to keep the panick away! Some of you might find them as an inspiration, as you know I never make cards in batches - each one is original and once it is gone you won't see another one like it ! So please have a look and hopefully be inspired! 
I will be back on Monday with the next one, but I think these few will do for a few days....
I have been doing traditional and a bit quirkie ones - just for a change I thought I would go different colors and style....



White and silver, quite traditional! I love that Tiny stars background stamp from Hero Arts - so many ways you can use it! Also the Crafty individuals Merry Christmas stamp!


And here is a blue one with snowflakes and a bit of vellum!




And as last a more traditional one - red and green.... The Poinsettia is from Leane Creatief - not so bulky but very nice and detailed die!





So there, see you all Monday with another card! Have a lovely weekend! And get up to making those cards you don't want to be doing them on Christmas Eve, do you???? :-)
Lots of love and hugs,
Cardarian
