Sorry I've not been around much but I've been down with a chest and throat bug so been on antibiotics and steroids.  
It's been very peaceful for my family as I haven't got much of a voice still.
 The joys.... Hope to get some more of my christmas cards done at the weekend. Stay cosy.

Smile.....

Hello,
Apologies for being late in posting but I'd scheduled my card for the wrong date..... whoops. 
It's the 1st of October so it's time for a new challenge over at:
Sparkles Forum Christmas
Jane has chosen the theme of:
'Make us laugh'
which was a challenge for me but I managed to use the words from an Indigo blu stamp and a 'From the heart' digital stamp.  These birdies still make me smile. I also used a 'John from next door' bauble embossing and die cutting folder. My hubby had the idea to put snowflakes in the baubles-I'm sure he's a secret crafter ha ha.....

Hugs

Hi all,
It's been a busy day with the food shopping being delivered, walking the dog, washing towels and making soup from leftover chicken bones and meat - I didn;t want to waist them. Hubby got out for a motorbike ride. 
Here's a card I wanted to share with you that i made a bit ago with an Indigo blu stencil, inks and a Sue Wilson Hugs die which I love. Must decorate envelopes more as I think it looks nice and special.
Challenges:

Hope you've had a nice sunny day wherever you are.

Take care
