So I thought I would make some Halloween sweetie bags for James and his friend and found some freebies on the Polkadoodles blog. Well I haven't entered a challenge in forever but thought seeing as I've made these up I could have a go lol. I used a couple of digi stamps from the Sundae of Seasons cd as well and some paper from Daisy and Dandylion I have had for ages because to be honest Halloween isn't something I normally bother with. But when Jim saw the finished product he squee'd! The vampire one is his favourite apparently.
I wonder if they will stay in the bags until Halloween, probably not

some Christmassy stuff

I've added a few cards to Folksy this week and I've started making my Christmas cards. I don't like making Christmas cards though, they never look festive and you can't really sell them because you can get nice enough cards from the supermarket really cheap. Here are a few cards I've made using the toppers from my last post, the photos don't really show up the glitter and vellum or the backing papers I've used but you get the general gist I think.

Christmas again already?

So I've been asked to make lots of cards for a friend this year, I also wanted to find a christmas fair to hire a table at this year only problem is I have not made any cards yet and we are already in October. I have stamped and coloured a few images ready to be made into cards so at least it's a start. I bought a few Christmas stamps at Harrogate GNPE a few weeks ago and here are a couple of them coloured and mounted.The Christmas tree is a Kanban stamp from a very cute stamp set I bought last year.
I tweeted the tree picture to @letrasetuk today and they retweeted me, so who knows maybe a few of their followers will have a look, I feel honoured lol xxx

how neglected?

wow I haven't updated this blog in far too long, it's shameful. I am going to attempt to revive it though. I have been concentrating recently on my Facebook page and Folksy (where I managed to make a sale might I add lol) but I think I should start blog hopping again now Jim is at school and I have a bit more spare time. Here is a card I have on my facebook page made for a beach wedding, I'll add some more cards tomorrow that I have made for commission, and I will be hopping around for inspiration too xxx
