Easel Calendar Take Two

I used a different "Fred's Flower" on this one. I've got 8 more of these little calendars to use, so I'm going to make 8 more of these in different colours, but don't worry I won't be posting them all on here, don't want to bore you all to tears!! lol

Have a nice day whatever you're doing xx

Easel Calendar

Father Christmas very kindly got me a Hougie board for Christmas (cos I was a good girl!!) so I thought I'd road test it and make something other than a card.

The instructions for the easel box are from Stamping Moments and can be purchased here. Jenny has got some absolutely fantastic projects and I can see a big spend coming on!! lol
The gorgeous dahlia is from Tracey at Fred, She Said and the little calendars are from Samuel Taylors .. 10 for 99p .. bargain!!

P.S. Just Inklined have got a fabulous offer on at the moment ... Buy 10 Digital Stamps and get them at HALF PRICE!! Further details are here.

Hope you're all having a relaxing Christmas and haven't drunk or eaten too much. I haven't ... yeah right!!! lol

Ding Dong Merrily On High

I thought I'd have a change from the traditional Christmas colours and be a bit daring and go with Kingfisher Blue.

The image is called "Christmas Bells" from Just Inklined and can be purchased here.
I coloured it in with Promarkers but forgot to write the colours down .. doh!!
I used a Martha Stewart border punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder and nesties and finished off with a bit of ribbon and pearls.

Wish me luck, I'm off to do the food shop this afternoon and I'm not looking forward to it one bit!! Wonder if anyone would mind if I didn't bother going and we had Beans on Toast for Christmas dinner instead!! lol

Merry Christmas Mum & Dad

I used the beautiful Poinsettia again from the "Christmas Past" Cupcake Crafting CD.

This is a large 8" x 8" card, but it was so simple to make. Not a lot going on, just used my swiss dots cuttlebug folder and large nestie dies.

Merry Christmas Mum and Dad xx

Just Inklined Blog Hop

Welcome to this months blog hop from Just Inklined.
The theme is "All Stitched Up" using real or faux stitching which was set by Debbie.
Now the last time I used a sewing machine was at school and even then I dropped out of needlework and took woodwork with the boys instead!! So even though I can't stitch I can make a good bookshelf!! lol

So consequently I used faux stitching and I don't think it looks too bad even though I say so myself!! I used Maude Merry Christmas and coloured her in with Promarkers. Think I'll send it to hubby and then maybe he'll realise I'm a dolly bird compared to her!! lol

If you're on the right track you should have arrived here from Toni and from here you should pop over to our Guest Designer of the month Jeni and see what gorgeous creation she's come up with. Welcome Jeni, it's lovely to have you with us.

Enjoy the hop and in case you get lost, here's a list in the correct order.

Karen (that's me)

Little church in the snow

I love this little church from Just Inklined and it was so simple to colour in.

After all the red and white Christmas cards I've been making, I thought I'd go with non-traditional colours on this. I think it looks quite effective.
I used some black glitter paper from my stash and the gorgeous snowflake backing paper is from Jak which can be found here. Thanks Jak.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and that the snow doesn't cause you too many problems.
Take care xx
