Lucy's 23rd Birthday card

A quick and simple card using some fab swiss dots cardstock.  The finished card measures 12" x 6" so I had to make an envelope.
The letters were cut out on my craft robo and coloured using alcohol inks.

Cheese Scones

My friend Janet over on the Bijoux Belles mentioned she was going to make some cheese scones.  I haven't made these in years and really fancied some...........
They're too hot to taste yet.

The finished Advent House

I am actually pleased with the finished result but there are things I would do differently if I were doing another.  The roof caused me the most grief - I tried circles, squares and  triangles in white card, a border punch, scalloped edge scissors - the list goes on.  In the end, I used more of the patterned papers and flower soft for some snow.

More of Advent House

I haven't adorned all of the drawers - I can't decide whether to add some Christmassy words to the others or just leave as is.  I'm not good with blank spaces, I like to fill them up!
Still to do are the roof tiles, the chimney and some Christmas lights.

Laura's Wedding Card

Happy Wedding Day Laura!!
I made this card on behalf of the Bijoux Belles.

I can't take the credit for the design of the card - I found it on this blog.

Advent House

I got this house last year from Tesco but never got around to decorating it.  I've decided that now Adam and Lucy have their own house, I will decorate it for them and fill the drawers with small gifts.

The papers I am using are some of my favs at the mo - Echo Park, Wintertime. 
This is as far as I have gone.

Christmas card for CCW challenge

My poor neglected blog:(  Oh dear, it's been a while but I have been busy at Adam's new house.)
Anyway I have made a card for this challenge, using Sue's sketch.  I've never done a card from a sketch before so that was a first.

Check out Creative Craftworld blog for challenges their countdown to Christmas challenges.

Next is a card I made for Lucy's nephew who loves Ben 10.

I made a side stepper card as it enabled me to get more images on and it makes it look more action packed (well I thought so anyway!).  As long as Jake likes it, that's the main thing.
