Beccy's place - November challenge for the whole month - make a card everyday or just when you have the time. 'J' is for Jumper '
I haven't celebrated Christmas since we came to Australia - it really is a Northern hemisphere thing with snow and lots cold weather- family and friends getting together over the holiday period with all the males wearing their Christmas sweaters .

Beccy's Place November challenge - 'I' is for Iris fold - I didn't have a pattern for this and just used a round hole punch and then cut out the extra bit at the top which is why they are all slightly different- I used soft pink and green which I quite like.http://beccysplace.blogspot.com.au/2017/11/day-10-i.html

Wow ,I'm already behind and Beccy is only up to 'F' . I will have to find some time to play catch.
A simple bell shape with some bakers twine tied in a bow - the border is washi tape- I added glossy accents to the red berries. Join in the fun at Beccy's Place with a month of Christmas themed cards.

The cards above and below were made with papers from a Christmas Pad - I've had the pad for a while and tried to use papers last year but none of them seemed to match so I think a lot of the papers will end up in the bin. I had stash of small envelopes and used an A4 piece of card which I cut up to make this fold over type card .
It's been ages since my last post -I've been busy getting the garden ready for the Summer and part of this has been making the veggie patch smaller- we always grow more than we can eat.
I'm working on a cross stich of a sausage which will be made into a cushion- it should be finished in the next two weeks.

Southern Girls - challenge 164 - tic tac toe - I've gone with the diagonal of flowers ,image and ribbon.
We've had rain now for 2 days which doesn't happen very often - yesterday my little kitty Bella was very unhappy - we have a litter in the spare bedroom which she refuses to use - she wouldn't go out in the rain ( it was very very heavy ) - we sat her in the litter tray but it did no good - I'm guessing her tiny bladder couldn't hold it in anymore and at 4.15 this morning she came and woke us up so that we could let her out - as it's raining again today I have a funny feeling we will have to go through all this again tonight.

Scrapbook Boutique - June challenge - a great colourboard if you love gold and black - my two patterned papers have been in my stash for over 10 years and are from Paperflair - I used my favourite stamp for the sentiment which I stamped in gold and the used a clear embossing powder - 3 layers each for the trees to give them some depth.
Well ,the cold have really arrived now with a minus 4 last night - my craft room was so very very cold this morning - I did turn on the heating but for the short time I was in there it really didn't do any good - the lens on my camera kept misting over and I had take several pics to get just one reasonable shot.

It seems forever since I last posted - I did make some cards at the end of April and posted them off completely forgetting to take a photo.

This card uses some of my washi tape stash - the background is very very pale blue - just need to add a sentiment -still deciding
'come rain or shine I'm glad your mine'
'we are better together'
' you make me happy when skies are grey'
'whatever the weather glad were together '

Beccy's Place - March challenge - I coloured the image then chopped it up and layered each section on black
.I'm not a person who goes for bold bright colours but Gerberas are the exception OR so I thought -when I passed my local florist yesterday I had a look inside and there were some beautiful Gerberas in white and the palest of pinks - who knew ?

I 'm not really sure about this card -I love the background paper but I when I added silver or pale blue tones it looked a bit drab and boring - bring on the pink - a pale pink.
Christmas Card Throwdown - March sketch - I wasn't sure if my little tree at the bottom of the card would be allowed but then I noticed a member of the DT has some silver holly on her card.
Southern Girls - challenge 155 - pop it up - I popped up my little pink tree.
