tree gathering...


Good morning everyone I hope your all well, yes I'm back finally, did you think I was stuck on my craft room floor lol, my hip is all better a bit stiff but at least I can sit and colour for a little while...yyyyyaaaayyyyyyy...I haven't been out much or even done much this week, see that's what you get for being a klutz isn't it, you get stuck on the house while everyone else is out enjoying that start of the festive season...I went out yesterday afternoon for a little mooch around and was gobsmacked at how many places have their Christmas decorations up, mind I haven't seen one in a house window yet...have you?...well what you been up to while I have been hibernating...anything exciting?...oh btw has anyone seen Gravity yet?, I would love to know if its worth going to the cinema to see...right now onto my card for today this fabulous little Edwin is from the new Winter Wonderland Magnolia collection, this is the so so cute Christmas Eve Edwin...I coloured him with my distress inks and used papers and a tag from the Kaisercraft - Holly Bright 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad...this is such a lush pad isn't it, just perfect for all those traditional feeling cards...I added a stamped sentiment from the C.C. Designs Naughty Or Nice Sentiments set, the stamped snowflakes I used by masking off Edwin are from the same set too...a lush bow made from some Gingham Wired Edge Gold Thread Ribbon - Burgundy, a few buttons from the Primary - 25g button bag and finished with a couple of snowflake charms from the 5 x Snowflake 6 Charms (B024-W) bag...everything I used for my card today is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the lush sketch is from the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Tilda's Town Challenge (my favourite Magnolia stamp is always the newest one) and the Sister Act Card Challenge too...I think Phil is baking cakes today as my lovely Dad loves Dundee cake but hates the ones in the shops and will only eat Phil's...I must admit he makes the best boozy creole Christmas cake ever, its so rich you can heat it up and eat it with cream like Christmas pudding...its scrummy...right I have made myself hungry now so I'm off for some toast lol...whatever your up to today have fun and watch out for those lethal stairs the last step is a big one lol

Hi Mina, good to see you're ok!

I've seen Christmas stuff everywhere, and Christmas music has been played in the shops since the first of November. Honestly, it drives me crazy! I'd very much prefer it if they waited until December at least (2 weeks before the big day, preferably), as I find it completely spoils the mood when they start so early! By the time X-mas comes along I'm completely sick of it all!

Cards however is another matter... As crafters, we have no choice but to start earlier! lol.
And your card is gorgeous as alweays! x

gorgeous card! I put off putting up our tree and decorations until the 1st of December, otherwise the kids just whinge about how long it is until Santa comes :) or the decorations get used as cricket balls! Hope you're feeling better x

Oh Mina - its been such a long time since I came visiting any blog buddies - and I'm sorry to learn that you took a recent tumble. I'm sorry you are so stiff and sore although it sounds like it could have been even worse. DO take care! I have had a really difficult six/seven months since April but I feel I am turning a corner. My mojo is much improved. I'm actually enjoying crafting again and you can hopefully expect to see more of my comments on your blog. For now though - while I catch up with everyone - I'm just going to wizz through in the hope that I can get through all my blog buddy's blogs by the end of the week. This little Tilda is adorable and coloured beautifully. Love your pretty bow with the snowflake centre too! Hugs, Lelsey
