Christmas has started!

This months Lavinia Stamps Challenge (see the box on the left for details) is all about Christmas - my absolute favourite time of year.  My house looks like Santa's grotto by the time I've finished decorating it!!

STILL have the builders in!! so much for a 12 week project! still it is looking good and I think that the end is in sight.  I had to fight my way in to my craft room and make these ones quickly, so not quite as good as I would like, I am sure you can all do a lot better and I look forward to seeing your entries.

Bobby is growing fast and getting on well with the the other two, I am sure he is drinking kangaroo juice from somewhere as this little one is on springs!! so intelligent - we have got him doing all sorts of tricks including playing the guitar and skateboarding :)!

Anyway - I do hope that you like these cards and that may be they will give a spark of inspiration for you to enter our challenge.

This is so simple to do with the tiny leaf stamps and one of my favourite to make.  Love the new simple message too!

This is done with brushing mica powder over versa mark

This looks better in real live as the background has silver flakes that catch the light as you turn it.

Lots of love to you all
