More Christmas

Not much to report, very quiet week this week, though do have Molly for the day tomorrow. So I've caught up on making a few more christmas cards for my stock box. First some Disney princesses. This is Sleeping Beauty, very pretty in pink.

Then we have Cinderella, cool in blues and mint. Finally Belle takes the stage, in a more traditional pallete of red, green and gold.

For the boys We have Bob the Builder on a background of colourful stockings.

Polka Doodles Challenge 22

Here's my attempt at this week's challenge, again to follow a sketch.

I used a polka dot background from candy doodles, an image from scrapbookingmad, ribbon from my stash and punched foam snowflakes.

New Baby Cards

Not much happening in life at the moment. Struggling to cope with the postal strike, ebay orders don't work without Royal Mail.

Have been trying to make some cards for my Ladock Craft Fair stock. Here's some baby cards. And here's 2 of my favourite style of baby cards using the little bootees that I knit.

Todays efforts

Here's a few cards I've made today. First a new home card for my Dad.  Polka Doodles materials.

Then I added to my christmas stock, courtesy of Scrapbookingmad again. This is from the skiing polar bear snowglobe download. I used half the elements on one card and the rest on this card-

Polka Doodles Challenge 21

Just a quick note to post my entry into Polka Doodles Challenge. All products from Candy Doodles cd.
The challenge was to follow a sketch. I've added a pink dotty ribbon and a clear gem for effect.

Been absent for too long! So this could be a long episode.
 We had our flight to the Isles of Scilly, great fun , much prefer the trip by helicopter rather than boat, even if the cost is prohibitive! Fantastic views of Penzance and Land's End. The Isles are lovely for a quick visit, not sure what you'd do on a longer visit. Certainly need good weather while you're there.

Have finally got my cardmaking bug back again. I lost it for a while after Olivia's accident- that knocked me for six. Then with David having time off last week, there wasn't time. So this week I'm back in full flow.
Have made a start on some Christmas cards. This "Football Santa" may go in to the competition at Scrapbookingmad.

Then today I've made a few cards from a kit by Kanban that I bought from QVC. Some have back views to the characters which adds a certain something to the cards. Photos don't really do these justice, they are much nicer in real life.

Have also made a couple of cards using a download I won from Scrapbookingmad for entering their September competition. I came 5th, not bad for my first attempt. And here's the card I entered-you had to follow a sketch.

Good news this week, Olivia has started back at nursery. She is a lot more confident with her cast as time goes by . She is moving around on her bottom and hoisting herself up on to the sofa. Maybe eventually she will be able to walk on it.The doctor did say she could.
At the weekend it was Becca's 30th birthday! From now on I will have to lie about her age as I can't possibly have a daughter that age! I forgot to photo her card. Will have to have it back one day.

Eden Sunshine

On Friday we decided to go for a quick walk around Eden with the little ones . At least  now we can just pop down there when ever we fancy as it's only 10 minutes away and we have our local return tickets. Anyway it was pleasantly sunny and quite warm . Olivia is quite happy to be pushed in her pushchair at the moment, and both her and Molly love the ride down there in the bendy bus. We all had " hearty veg soup " and Eden bread for lunch-very nice too.
Tomorrow David and I are off to the Isles of Scilly by helicopter so hopefully should get some nice photos.
