Hi a lovely crisp snowy Monday to everyone under the age of maybe 70, this is not a good time for the old, disabled or people with pushchairs. I feel sorry for the people up north who are having a really bad time of it and the people traveling in cars.
This week-ends Challenge on One Stop is Christmas Cuties selected by Lorraine.
I have been a bit tight and recycled a cred that my friend (new to crafting) sent me I have tried to show her ways to make her money go further by chopping cards like this that have the same background on the back but it hasn't worked yet, I have also added a snowflake button to finish it off.

Challenges I have entered:
a spoonful of sugar - 131 Anything goes
crafty catz weekly challenge - Christmas
freshly brewed challenges - winter
Integrity design team challenges - #24
scrappy frogs - Merry Christmas
the stampman - christmas
craftypad challenge blog - Snowflakes

What a lovely start

Hi everybody hope the weather is being kind to you, I would just like to share some of my good news with you but I don't want it to sound like I'm boasting.
First of all I've been struggling to get my Baby Cricut to go for a few weeks & finally caved in & phoned USA to get it fixed, I spoke to a lovely lady who took all the details then asked me for my Address which I thought was to check for registry then they told they would send me a new one, How kind is that.
Second - You know when your bored after you have face booked, Blog Hopped all your friends and done your E-mailing, I thought I would google my blog like I do sometimes only to find I have won the Blog Hop at Whimsy Stamps and if that wasn't shock enough I also found out I won a stamp at the Fairy Knoll Blog Hop too.

Challenge #105 - Pop - Up's

Hi everyone hope you all have a lovely week-end it's my turn at OSCC for this weeks challenge which is Pop - Up's and it was certainly that (just Joking) I chose to do this Le Pashe Trinitage card that my friend Anne showed us all how to make & they are so easy. I got mine from Imag-e-nation and they also have a video in case you get stuck, the only things i added extra were the Poinsettia (mine will have survived a year in 2 weeks time woo hoo) and a snowman I hope you'll please come & join us. Take care Janet
