Christmas challenge....

Afternoon all, well surprising myself with 2 posts in 2 days! I caught sight of Kylie's Christmas challenge over at HLS and I love making Christmas cards so here is my card:

The criteria is Anything goes with the option of embossing. I used Card-i-o stamps and SU sentiment and silver and white embossing powder.

Easter mayhem!

Hello everyone I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break?
The family descended on Thursday and in typical fashion my dishwasher died that evening! 😣 There was no way I was going to wash up over the next 4 days so thanks to AO a new machine was delivered next day!
We had Charlie and Phoebe all to ourselves for 24 hours as Keir took Lara away for a spa night in a lovely hotel.
We have beautiful gardens near us which were hosting an Easter trail so we all did that on Saturday and had a picnic as it was a lovely day.
Lara and I had a couple of hours off on Sunday as she took me off to see Beauty and the Beast, great film.
After the littlies had their Easter hunt Charlie organised one for us by hiding our eggs and writing clues all by himself for us to follow 😍
I have been crafting but can't show you much as the birthdays haven't arrived yet. I made a couple of Easter cards come and see:

I made this for the children but my OH couldn't see that it was a rabbit disappearing down a hole!!

3 birthday cards, first one for my favourite nephew and the other 2 for friends

Finally a couple of the littlies 😉

See you soon x

Hi there on this gorgeous sunny day in London 😎
Note to self if you want to enter a challenge read the rules!!!
I saw this week's challenge over at Less is More and saw the cue word CURVE. Totally missed the one layer criteria! So anyway here  is my card that I can now stamp on to add more interest.

I bought some of the new TH inks at Ally Pally yesterday and had a go at smooshing. I then die cut the piece and left a curved gap which I stamped the sentiment into before attaching it to the card base.

Busy week ahead as Charlie and co are arriving for Easter. I may need to lie in a darkened room when they leave 😂

Ally Pally....

Hi there just a quick post to see if anyone is going to Ally Pally this weekend for the craft fair?
I just have one card to show you which is a birthday card for my Dil's SiL! Very simple with a distressed background and a MB die.

Hope you are all enjoying this lovely spring weather, I hope it continues over Easter when the family are coming to stay. I'll just share one of our latest photos:

Charlie looking remarkably happy considering that Phoebe had just destroyed his building!
