Catching up - Big post warning!!

Oh my lord - I seem to have lost a couple of weeks - do you know where they have gone - lol. I haven't even got a decent excuse yes a nativity, carol concert and running around for school disco's thats about all I can blame on the boys. I must take the blame though, every year I think I am organised and then it all goes a bit Pete Tong!! I've tried to keep up to date with blog hoppin and the forum that I like a bit of a chat on but feel I have failed miserably. So if I havent left you comments when I normally do please accept my apologies and I will try harder in the New Year.

Anyhoo, enough of my feeble excuses and ramblings here are a couple of cards I have made:

This was for my hubby made with a digi from Pollycraft - coloured with pro-markers, papers from ebay, snowflake made with a Mariannes die cut and sentiment generated on the pooter.
(p.s. its not wonky - I photographed it with the envelope underneath - doh)
I would like to enter this into:
Alys Sunday Challenge - anything goes.
Karber Christmas challenge - Christmas (with a digi)
Spoonfull of sugar - Christmas

This next one is made with a combination of different stamps. Sarah sent me the front sentiment but it had a pair of what I thought looked like ladies pants on and as it was for a boy I cut the pants off and then inside stamped a boxer shorts image that I had from Little Claires:


Papers again from ebay the pants have been coloured with promarkers and then Glossy Accented.
I would like to enter this into:
Freshly Brewed Challenge - Christmas
Wags & Whiskers - snowflakes

It's all a bit of a blur who I have given cards to, but I think I gave this to one of the mums at school who gave me a lovely giftbag of homemade biscuits - yum. My cooking is not fab - so I thought I would give her my version of homemade:

Papers from Stash - think they were last years Daisy & Dandelion, the image also from stash backed onto Mirri card and coloured with promarkers then highlighted with glossy accents and stickles. The little present embelishment was from Dunelm mill - I think it was meant to be a button but I cut the loop thing off the back and glued with glossy accents.
I would like to enter this into:
Creative Belli Blog - Christmas
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes

Lastly - this is actually a spare - hmm who have I forgotten to post to:

Again - last years papers & Sentiment, image from Sarah (again - thank you!!) coloured with promarkers and highlighted with stickles.

I would like to enter this into:

I love promarkers - anything goes.

Phew I think I need a cup of tea now!!!

Then its off to make some Christmas decs. with they boys - talk about last minute lol!! In case I dont get back on again before Christmas I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all :
