She’s At It Again!!!!!


Morning sweet peeps and hope you are OK today xxx

I’m so sorry but the obsessions with the kraft stuff is still in evidence - I can’t seem to stop using it!!!  It will stop one of these days and I will go back to the pink and girly stuff I’m sure, but I am enjoying using something a bit different at the mo.

Anyhoos it’s time to nip across to the The Ribbon Girl Blog for the last challenge of 2012 and of course we have a seasonal theme this month which is

Ho Ho Ho (or A Christmas Card)

There’s a £20 Gift Voucher (twenty pounds Sterling) up for grabs from the fabulous Ribbon Girl PLUS
a stamp of the winners choice from
Lili of the Valley :)

So …..

... this is what I did.

Like I said,  the kraft card is still in favour and it’s another really easy peasy card to make for Christmas.

The bauble is a Memory Box die and I just added a couple of inked up Cheery Lynn  Francesca Border strips and some pretties from The Ribbon Girl.

Here, have a look in close up ……

And these are the proddies I used ….

181730-rusty-bell-13mm             172459-teatowelbrown

                     13mm Rusty Bells,                   15mm Brown Tea Towel Stripe No 6,



     184423-mediumberries               134746-ivory-beaded-berries

          Medium Red Berries,                                   Ivory Beaded Berries


It took not time at all to put it together really.
In fact, I may make a few of these to put in my card box. I have a few in there at the mo but nowhere near as many as I actually need.

So that’s me card all done.

I’m typing this on Saturday afternoon cos I know I won’t have time tomorrow as the horrors are in residence. So I don’t know who has won IACGMOOH, but I do know that it ain’t Dishy Dave, cry cry :(

  Still, a Youtube clip is for life and not for one series, drool drool!!!

Now all we have to do is get through Strictly and the X factor!!

I am not being horrible (well I am a bit I suppose) but I cannot bear Christopher Maloney. The very sight of him on the telly makes me knuckles go white. His little Nanna is so sweet but he seems to behave like a spoilt brat and I would love to give him a slap or two. He hasn’t got a reputation as a diva for nothing and if there is one thing I cannot stand it is a diva. Get over yourself mate would be my advise. He tries to come across as humble but  I think it’s a bit of an act. He can sing to be fair but the judges are right – he sounds a  bit dated sometimes.

I like listening to James but not always watching him (no doubt the wouldn't like doing either re me lol ). He has one hell of a talent though and he has soul coming out of his ears . I even downloaded SOS last week cos it was amazing.

Here -  have a butchers if you missed it ….

… awesome :)
I think the final will be between him and Jahmene
Right enough of this waffle malarkey,  I better go.>br>I have just been and gotten me some of those really useful boxes so I am now going to try and organise the craft room yet again as it has been a bit neglected of late. Sadly it wont do itself so I better make a start. And I have to do the prep for Monday’s card club as well so it’s all go here  at the mo.
Enjoy your Sunday peeps and if you get a sec, nip over to the challenge because there is some seriously fabulous stuff on there.
See you in the week and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

This is stunning Dawny. I love the design and wonderful colours.
I have to say I TOTALLY agree with you regarding Christopher Maloney, I just don't get why he is so popular and who would buy his records I wonder. I suppose I can't complain that he is still in the competition as I never vote myself though.

I hope you have a good Sunday
Hugs Sue
