Tilda with Present

I love days like this, cold, crisp and sunny, the colourful autumn leaves are almost sparkling in the sunshine.  Sofie has some A level artwork to do this half term, she has to take lots of pictures of leaves, trees, bark, berries etc this time of year is just perfect for gorgeous autumnal pictures.

I can't believe I have made yet another card, 2 days in a row :)
I love the Card a Day Blogging over on FB.

This is another new Christmas Tilda stamp that I couldn't resist.

I very rarely tie bows on cards as i just can't seem to perfect it, I look at other peoples bows and they seem to be perfect, if anybody has any tips please let me know :)

Papers are the gorgeous Vintage Christmas by Whimsy Stamps.
Sentiment Stamp - Lili of the Valley
Gingham Ribbon, Roses, Sheer Bloom, Gypsophila, Snowflake Charm, Curly Sparkly Ribbon - Creative Treasures

Enjoy the rest of the day

How long.....

I can't believe it has been that long since I last posted, sometimes life just gets in the way. I've only made a couple of requested cards since the summer, but I'm back on track now :)

I've added some gorgeous new stock to the shop and I've actually made a couple of christmas cards, I absolutely love the festive season and every year I find it stressful making all the Christmas cards, so I'm hoping to make at least 3-4 Christmas cards every week.  Of course it would have been rude of me not to purchase a few of the new Magnolia Christmas stamps :)

We also have half term this week - yippee, we have already visited the orthodontist first thing this morning for Shay, although he did moan about having to get up the same time as a school day, I haven't told him yet that he has a hair cut at 9.00am tomorrow lol.

Here is the card that I have made, gloomy days are not good for taking photos.

I know I say this all the time but I love this stamp, the reindeer is so cute.

Papers - Krafty Christmas pad and North Pole Stamp are the from Lili of the Valley
Cherry Blossom, Roses, Pine Cones, Berries, Pom Pom Trim, Pearl Heart, Pearls, Curly Sparkle Ribbon - Creative Treasures
Lampost - Doo-Hickey Die, Felt Flower - handmade.

I have made a long list of jobs to get through this week, so I'm off to start them! maybe I will just have a coffee first lol.

Have a fab day.
