Lots of Glitter

It's the 1st of the month so
it's time again for a new challenge over at Sparkles Forum Christmas.

It's the lovely Pat's turn to choose the theme this month which is:
'Lots of Glitter'
For my card I used a few of my dies and coated them in lots of glitter. Can't beat a bit of bling.

Now I know we've just had Christmas but if you make a few cards a month then by December you're on top of it all. I am determined to get more organised this year instead of the usual scramble at the end. 
We would love you to join in with us. 
The other teamies have made some beautiful creations. Just click on the badge below.

The lovely Caz has a prize for us this month so good luck all.
Thanks Caz.

O' Christmas Tree

How are you all doing? Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas. We had a nice relaxing and quiet time which was lovely.
I've been having a play today with some clarity stamp letters that I got for Christmas from my friends Sheila and Tom... I love them thank you. So useful. 

I wanted to do a card for the Clarity Stamp challenge which runs out today. My favourite carol is O'Christmas Tree but I didn't have any Christmas stamps so I made my own stencil from a tree die and used the stamp shown below to add some texture.  This is my last Christmas card of 2016. A little head start for next year.
Hope you like it.


I'm feeling so much better with my Asthma today so I've made some banana loaf buns and a quiche for tea. The buns didnt rise much but taste okay. Must go as tea is nearly ready.
Have a nice night whatever you're up to.

Merry Christmas

Hello all,
Long time no see.... apologies I've been poorly with my asthma and a chest infection for the last 3 weeks.So I've been lying low trying to get better. I started with it at the end of my holiday in Scotland. Oh well I had a fun time staying with my Mum and Bob. 

Anyway I'm here to wish you all:

"a Very Merry Christmas."
Have a super time no matter what you're doing.

We've not opened our pressies as we are waiting to do it when Shannen arrives. She's working bless her. She was supposed to be here for 4pm but it's so busy it's going to be 5pm now. No rush. We are having a nice relaxing day.

Here's a card I sent to our dear friends Sheila and Tom made with an Indigo blu Christmas tree stamp, heat embossed with silver.


Thank you for all your kindness and support this year. You've all been amazing. I'm slowly getting back to commenting. Bear with me please.
Take care.
Hugs Debbie xxxx

Christmas wrapping

Hi all,
It's the 1st of the month so
it's time again for a new challenge over at Sparkles Forum Christmas.

It's my turn to choose the theme this month which is:
'Anything but a card'
it could be wrapping paper, a tag, gift card, box, etc...

I decorated a gift bag and made a gift card holder too.

We have been sponsored this month by the lovely Caz, Thank you very much dearie.

Why not join in with us, we'd love to see what you've made. The other teamies have created some inspiring makes. Just click on the badge below.

Anniversary card

Hi all,

Well the good news is my test results are back and I don't have to have any treatment for my bowel cancel....whoopee!!!! The cancer was contained in the polyp they removed.  It took a few days for the news to sink in but I feel like a weight has been lifted at last. It's time my family and friends to have a break from worrying about me. I've got to go for regular check ups for both the Ovarian and bowel cancer but that's the easy part. Phew.....
Thank you for all your support and for hanging on in there with me while I've been going through all this. 

Anyway here is my card for today using one of my first Clarity stamp stencils which I go back to time and time again. I've also used the wee folk stamps and the letterbox letters.

I am going up to Scotland for a weeks holiday to my Mum and Step Dad's. I can't wait. It's been over 2 years since I last had a holiday up there but I'll try to keep popping into blogland while I'm there. I go on Saturday. 
Thanks for popping by and leaving such wonderful comments.

Christmas wishes

Hi all,
Apologies that it's been a couple of weeks since I last blogged. I've been feeling abit off colour and had a few relapses with my M.E. then my hospital appointment that I'd been waiting for was cancelled due to my specialist nurse being ill so I was gutted. These things happen I understand but I'd banked on getting my results after the tests I'd had in September. Anyway I go this Wednesday. 

I thought it was time I got cracking and made a few more xmas cards.
Here's a card I've made today using my new Indigo blu stamps. I ordered a lucky dip indigo blu bag from Hochanda for £25 (the contents were worth £85) and wow was I impressed. See my pictures below. I also bought a trailing flower bush so I could use my £10 voucher too. Bargains.



Thanks for popping to see me.
