No crafting ahhhhhh

Hi all
we are all sat at Centre parcs now. We are now homeless while they sort out the completion on our new house. (what a horrible place to be at Christmas time homeless!!!) Fingers crossed it will get sorted. So no craft room aaaaahhhhh once I get my house that is the first thing getting sorted out! So swimming lots and going to enjoy our little Christmas here at centre parcs. The kids are very happy and getting spoilt rotten so I am a happy mummy.
Ali and Iain will see you all at the craft club tomorrow.

Lily-Boo challange card Paper piecing

Hi all,
Been over to Lily-Boo's Blog and done their challange. The one using the Ugly Bugs is the challange card "Give us a kiss" and the other card I did is for my Uncle for leaving the RAF. Thank goodness for photo glue. It was a paper piecing challange and I really enjoyed doing it. It took me out of my box and into a different angle, lots of fun.
Ali has been uploading all the Sarah Kay stamps to the website so have a look out for them.

Getting crafy for a moment

Hi all

Can you believe it I have been getting crafty (even if it was brief). Managed to do my first blog challenge card over on Totally Gorguss very lush. I have impressed myself!!! What you can do with lack of craft room. Used craftwork card products (the dots, the paper and the flower). Used the Merry Christmas from the Ugly Bug range. Really enjoyed this one, so watch this space for more entries to other blogs.
Will be on the way to getting my craft room back soon thank heavens, Hopefully moving next week yipppeeeee!!!!

Not dropped off the side of the planet

Hi all
I have not dropped off the side of the planet, I have just been uber busy. The house move is pants been delayed another week. Boo hoo no craft room for an extra week aaaahhhhhh!!!! Took the kids and hubby (so three kids) to the Christmas market at Lincoln it was fab and then tonight have been to the kids nativity "Mary's knitting" it was fab, both kids made me very proud.
On the crafting front Ali is ordering in some great stuff for the new year. Some lush stamps and great inks so watch the website for those. I have been on Totally Gorguss blog and loved the stamps so had to have a few of the Gorguss girls and of course the promarkers. Can't help myself. Going to do some more cards tomorrow so have not yet fallen off the crafting wagon just too fussy headed with the moving world at the mo. Getting withdrawals worse than lack of chocolate.

A lovely christmas flower star

Hi all,
On Tuesday Ali and I went to see our lovely crafty friends Laura and Rose. We had a lovely time at Laura's house. It was so so nice to get some crafting done and be in a craft room again after so long being apart from mine.
She showed us how to do the above star flower, which looks lush and would look great at Christmas time and be great for a wedding.(I will video blog this in a few weeks time, my fab hubby is buying me a camcorder to do this with so watch this space). We glued it together using 'glossy accents' which is new to me and it works great!!!
She made us some lovely lunch, so we both had a great day and a really good laugh so thanks to both Laura and Rose. I have also made another card using craftwork cards products that feature on our favourites of the week. Remember to check it out and use our promotional code of the week on the products you buy. (read other post)
Well I will get loads more crafting on the go and show you all the cards soon.
