Let It Snow...

Morning all!

Seriously the way i feel this morning i would be quite happy if it snowed i wouldn't have to go out and i could stay in the warm! Yep i'm full of cold and flu urgh! nose is resemebling rudolph already and such a sore throat it's like razor blades (i thought since having my tonsills out 6/7 years ago i wouldn't get a sore throat as bad) but boy i was wrong! lol i'll live!! hehe plenty of vitamin C and lemsips!

I'm here this morning with a new creation i've been playing with my distress inks again with my ''homemade ink duster'' hehe!

I love this cute bear from Lili of the Valley he's so sweet and makes a wonderful christmas card! I've dug out my wood veener shapes i brought about a year ago from the NEC i believe there kaiserkraft but don't quote me lol.

The Beautiful papers were a freebie in a magazine i brought last month from raspberry road, i think there gorjuss and it's very unusual for me to use a paper with a design like the lamp post on but i love it and thought it matched perfectly! The warm wishes stamp is from stampin' up and the ''let it snow'' is from button-it which is always at the nec sooooo need some more of those can't wait till november's show! and to finish i've used golden rod stickles!

I made 4 of these cards slightly different with different bears which will be on my blog over the next few weeks! 

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges

What I'm Lovin' October

Hey All!

I'm here to share a lil (well large) post with you all about the products in the craft world i'm currently lovin' this month! I was actually so busy last month i forgot to post so this maybe an extra long postie!
I have so many e-mails asking me about what kinda products i like to buy and use i thought this kinda post would give you all an insight into what crafty things i'm currently using and lovin'!

So here i am for October's post a little Early! Can't get much earlier than the 1st hehe as i've had so much going on!!!

Elle's Studio! I'm loving there journal snippits and cards there fab for my project life! Which this year i'm doing as A4 you can see my youtube vid's here! i'm so eager to start next years as i'm taking the plunge to 12x12!  

Mini Masterpieces by LOTV! I love these toppers there so handy for when you simply haven't the time or need to get a quick card made! Tho i must admit i'm missing my colouring so i like to mix it up and colour and use these!!!

Memory Box Dies - Winterland Tree

Memory Box dies! ''Currently i'm the type of crafter that hords punches and dies and never uses them mainly because i forget i even have them (she says owning a cricut and a slice) and since these memory box dies came out i love how inexpensive some of them are!'''  Extract taken from last months blog post! I've finally nabbed my hands on a few christmas trees that have been released and this winter wonderland tree is one is my fav's i've been after since last christmas, you'll see this crop up on my blog over the coming weeks! it's so very pretty cut out!!!!! 

For those who regually follow my blog and know me you'll know i'm obsessed with 6x6 paper! At this very moment in time i am lovin' the American Crafts Shoreline collection (well infact i love all American Crafts lines haha) but this is so vibrant and funky perfect for recording all my summer (not that we've had much of a summer in the uk) bits and bobs in Project Life 

These are my new favourite stamps at the moment, there really versitile not just used in scrapbooking or project life but also card making! Picked them up for a bargain of £1 on ebay!! so all is not lost there's still some fab things and bargains to be had on the good ole auction site!!!
