Favourite cards for this year & Happy 2012 to All

After 3 attemps  at trying to get the favourite logo on top of the post & actually losing one of my favourites I'm leaving this selection & quitting before I lose any more LOl.
I've not been feeling the best & had my head over a steaming bowl, I need to go get into the party spirit now.
Have a great time whatever you do.
Best wishes for 2012

Wishing you all a Happy Christmas

Well I just finished my last card for my nephew's wife, it was all boxed & ready to go, we had a wee chat & a see you on the day, off he went..........No Picture, I was just so relieved the last one was off in time, completely forgot to get the camera out, Ah well  no worries.

Now better get some tidying up done, house badly needs a once over, some pressies still to wrap & a few snowman soups to put together along with some chocolate wallets.
All the M&S shopping done  plastics gone into meltdown & I'm not entering another one till I have to.
I don't have to think about cooking till Boxing Day as going to nephews for christmas, he does all the cooking & the men do all the clearing up, so a nice relaxing day, we just take things as they come & meal is well spread out.

Thanks to everyone who visits me & wish you a Happy christmas & a all best wishes for a happy healthy 2012.

I hope everyone is well & weather not too bad, it's a wee bit chilly here but very calm.
I was naughty & just bought this stamp after seeing it on Joanna Sheen's websight, ( so near to christmas too)I just loved it & I'm not really a Santa fan, much prefer snowmen.
I've kept it in the  vintage theme, using Bo Bunny papers & used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.

Another Girlie Card

This is for a friend's daughter & she loves pink, so hopefully this is ok, I've been trying to get on with Christmas cards & seem to spend more time looking for stuff, I've spent the last half hor looking for DST, it had just evapourated, still found it now behind the desk, I wasn't going to start a new one.
I've lost track of the time spent searching under piles of card & paper, you'd think I'd have learned by now to be a bit more tidy.
On to the card as I'm getting a bit tired now been on the go since 5am.

This is my entry to LOTV challenge, Anything Goes, This is my first effort with Copics, I only have a few, mostly skin & hair colours & one or two each of primary colours.

This is for Ellie who is four & is a fanatic Celtic fan ( not popular here we're DUFC fans) but we'd keep her happy, so James is coloured accordingly & all embellishments except Flower soft & ribbon are paper & card to keep it child friendly.

PBSC Green & Trees

Hi all, another christmas card today, been at home all day not feeling too good, my cold's turned into an infection, so been sitting around a lot, if there had been more light I would have done lot's of colouring, but not a glimpse of sun today dark & gloomy, looks like winters actually here after all the nice mild weather.

This is certainly green & we have trees so should fit the challenge OK, it's definately a bit different for me.
I was looking for some suitable DP when I found this at the bottom of the box, must have been around for at least 3 years, it's amazing what we unearth when digging deep.

PBSC Gold & Presents

http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/Just made the challenge with one minute to go & spray glue still wet, apologies for the dark patch, I didn't want to risk adding details, so here the are.

This is my third attempt at this challenge, the others ended up in the bin, not making a good job of this image, way out of my comfort zone & she doesn't fit neatly into any dies, her feet & her heels have been chopped in earlier attemps, any ideas on how best to cut her out would be very welcome.

Hi All,you'll need your sunglasses on for this one, it's a bit Sparkly, photo turned out better than I thought, but you need to get the right angle to see it properly.
This for two challenges, Sketch Saturday (sketch) & Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is Snowflakes Silver/White, it's amazing what you can get done in the wee small hours, for some reason I hardly slept & yet was shattered when I went to bed, it always seems the more I do the less I sleep. I'm off to Zumba as soon as I've added this card.

Update on my Tinkerbell

If anyone remembers, three weeks ago I broke my crystal Tinkerbell, a birthday gift from my nephews 4 years ago, well I was shocked to discover it's now valued at £600 OMG I it was in two piecs,
Fortunately it was a clean split at the wings, well I took advice from my blog buddy Sam & took it back to the shop, well they checked it over & there was no other damage & said it would be sent back to the manufacturer & would cost £20 & take around 6weeks.

Well I had a call Saturday, she was back as new & NO CHARGE, isn't that fantastic, so as I'd saved £95 on insurance excess I just had to treat myself so bought a cute little Kris bear with a halloween lantern.
You can't beat service like that, British firms should take note.

PBSC Sketch

This is my first card for a while, just had a break as I had absolutely no inspiration, even all the stuff I bought at the SECC is still lying in the bag, except for the poinsetta dies  & MME papers which I've used on this card, after guilt setting in for the amount spent & nothing to show I had a try at this week's sketch for PB, which I nearly always enter, so here's the details.

Baby's First Birthday

Hi All, it's been a horrid week for me, doing stupid things I had my flu jag & hands been really shaky which hasn't helped,I decided to get some cleaning done & while dusting caught my crystal Tinkerbell with the duster & broke it, this was a special birthday gift from my nephews & was very expensive, so really upset (there's a morale there, Don't DO Housework), then I picked up a glass dish just out of the oven & it stuck to my fingers , I'd just treated myself to a manicure as gardening is almost done for the season & was more concerned about chipping my nails so my own fault for trying to be glamorous for a change, I spend most of my time either in gym or gardening wear.

Enough of the feeling sorry for me I managed to get this done with very tender fingers using Sketch Saturday sketch & Penny Black challenge of Age is Just a  Number in honor of Nat's 21st.

I've used PB image Embrace, coloured with promarkers

Mermaid Mimi

I've been having a week off as I've been rushing around for weeks & really need to take a break, mind you that's consisted of tidying the garden, zumba, yoga & pilates, I need to spend tomorrow catching up with housework & Sunday going to the flower show to see Gino cooking ( the one from Let's do Lunch), should be fun & today I'm off to Perth to check out the new craft shop.
This is for my great niece Gracies birthday, she is going to be six.

This is for PBSC Nat's sketch, I've used Mimi the Mermaid, my new PB, I was going to cut her out, but decided to leave all her little friends. The shimmer card is actually a really good match, but the blues are more prominent with the flash.

CAS Acetate Card

Evening all, have you survived the weather? I thought I might see the Ark passing by today! so wasn't going anywhere too soon this morning so managed to have a lie in, most unusual for me, son was going off to a piping competition outside Stirling, after hanging about a bit hoping it was cancelled he set off, he came back an hour ago & there's lots of sopping wet kit around the house, pipes dismantled drying off , kilt will prob dry out sometime next week ready for Glasgow on Saturday.
Anyhow as I had the afternoon stuck here thought I'd give this a go in between reading my book.
This is something different for me, I've only ever made one other acetate card & I did get in a bit of  a muddle with it, some backgrounds came out a bit harsh so went with a softer look.
Apologies for the pic, it was difficult to show the acetate front without looking like the tree was falling off the page, honest it's straight will try to add another pic when batteries charged.
PB Fantasy Tree stamped with white Stazon

No card today

I thought I'd add this piccy of a rose before it dies off, it's the first flower from a cutting I took from a bush belonging to an old neighbour who died two years ago, it was always full of magnificent blooms & the new people were going to dig it up. i didn't think anything would come of it, especially after last winter, I wish I'd taken the picture earlier as the colour wasn't so faded, hopefully I'll get another.

The weathers been atrocious here, but a wee bit of sunshine today so fingers crossed, also can't get any crafting done as electrian been working during the day & I just can't settle when there's workmen around & at the moment I don't have any lights & can hardly see what I'm typing, hope things get back to normal soon.
Take care

Hi again, weathers been a bit more behaved today, just one shower, we've had lots of flooding here so a good thing the sun came out for a while & I live on top of a hill, wish I was wherever this cool cat is getting all that sunshine, we do have a beach a couple of miles away, but that could be flooded too LOL.
Still busy with the jam, moving on to raspberry now, my son just polished off half a jar while it's still warm.

Hangler Girl

Hello all, hope you;ve survived the mega downpours & thunder storms, I think we surpassed the total rainfall for the whole month in one day , it's gone quiet for the moment but more coming, ah well I suppose we should expect it we had 2 whole really hot days.

This is my first time back for a whole week, been busy making strawberry jam, we've had a mega crop this year.

I managed a bit of time today  to make a card as it's been so wet, the challenge is shabby chic, which I'm not too sure about as I've not tried that before, I used aged looking DP & distressed the edges a bit, but not too good at that either, can't quite get the concept of destroying nice new papers, her's my effort with my nice new stamp.
