Looking From One Year Into The Next

HELLO, it's me again, two posts in such a short time is unheard of. I like it though keeps me on my toes!
Hope you have all had a good Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year and all that it brings...
fresh ideas hopefully and nothing to do with red or green or sparkle, well maybe a bit of sparkle...

My first class is on Saturday Jan.11th  2014 - Pastel Medley

 A nice array of pastel inks, papers, star brads, bobbles and ribbon tape. I enjoyed playing about with the new tapes with the adhesive backing...

You can get some lovely checks...
Sneak peek on the first card using the tapes on a tag card.

My second sample card is a stamp which I have been waiting to use since I started to make my Christmas cards, by Inkydoodles...

                                       Perfect for a birthday or you could use it for a baby card....

                                          Pale green card and white pompoms go well together.

I have another class for Sat. 8th Feb. which is Get into Shape...using different shaped cards but will be back with samples for that next time.
Let me know if you would like to come along to any of the classes.., until then take care all and have a very Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you in 2014.
                                                                  Thank you,
                                                                    Jennifer x

Cards from Friends.

Hello everyone I am back again.

I forgot when I posted onto my blog yesterday that I had a photo of the Christmas cards all the crafting ladies had made for me and I was going to put it up.

So here it is, a BIG THANK YOU to you all, I love them.....

My metal heart frame comes in handy every time. Just got them all on.

                                                     Happy Christmas Eve

The Last Days of December...Wow!!!!

Hello everyone
Down to the last few days till the big day, where has the time gone! I have only just finished my cards for the family but I have enjoyed making them. There are a few samples lower down the page to look at. I wanted to show you the photos first we tried to take of Charlie for this Christmas post. Not easy as I am sure you will know if you have cats, they don't like any contact, especially if you are trying to get a Christmas collar or hat on them.... Both me and Leanne had loads of fun and laughs too at the expense of Charlie, although he did get lots of his favourite biscuits(quite a lot too!).

Beautiful photo of the collar, Charlie not impressed.....

The hat ended up round his middle by the time we got this photograph...

Lucky shot this one after tea, you can just see my hands with the nibbles...a bit of bribery.

All good fun but not so sure Charlie would agree.
Oh, and he wanted to 'help out' with the wrapping.

I decided this year to have a real Christmas tree and put it in the bay window. It's funny how when we choose a tree we think we have the space to put a large elephant. Stephen's last words "Does it not look too big". We had to chop a bit off the top and it was fine, just squeezed it in.

Doesn't he look handsome.

Even better when decorated.
Next year I may even get a smaller one!!!!!

These are the cards I made for my family....
This one was for my younger sister, she loves anything with gingerbread men on.

This is for my other sister, and for those of you that came on the Christmas card class can see I have slightly adapted a card that we made.

I made two of this design, one for my nephew and adapted it for him indoors too!
I love the snowman stamp on this card I made for my other nephew.

It's a bit sad when you come to the end of making Christmas cards but great to think you can begin something new.

I also made some crackers using the the Which Craft  small cracker pack.

      Enjoyed making cards with the bunting frames too.

There's a sneak peek of my new Christmas lights very rustic they are.

A bit of white embossing on this card stands out nicely against the craft card...

Well I'll be off now to work on my January and February classes and post some samples as soon as...

Thank you for popping by and hope you all have a very Happy Christmas, and a big thank you for all your support in 2013 and look forward to seeing you in 2014.
Take care.
