♥ Christmas ornament ♥






Yesterday I shared with you my little felt tree decorated with colourful buttons.
Well I decided to turn it into a standing ornament by adding a wooden stick and decorated a wooden spool with frayed fabric and baker's twine with 3 jingle bells {these were recycled from a present from Michelle last year :) }
I am delighted how it all came together ;)


Enjoy your evening

SORTED NOW, BUT JUST CURIOUS TO KNOW IF ANYONE ELSE HAS HAD THIS ISSUE.

Have a fab evening ♥

♥ Christmas holly ♥



Today another CAS Christmas card using a lovely little CC Cutters die I bought last year.  I cut them out using some felt and added little red pearls for the berries, the sentiment is from Papertrey.

Thanks for popping by

♥ Trio of robin cards ♥



A little trio of Christmas cards to share with you today :)  I bought these gorgeous mulberry paper robin embellishments last year and thought I would make a few cards with them.  The mulberry paper reminds me of when I first started card making many years ago :)  I remember buying a lot of this stuff before learning to stamp and before "Cuttlebugs & die-cutting" were available.
I think these turned out lovely, very CAS ... but thought if I added anything else it would have been too cluttered.
I wasn't too well all last week, so just getting back on my feet again and these were very easy to get me back into the swing of things again ;)

I would like to enter these into two challenges ♥ 

CAS on Sunday ~ Christmas 

Let's craft and create ~ Let's celebrate




Have a lovely evening

♥ Look what my Mum made ... :) ♥





Look at the most beautiful arrangement my Mum made :) This is her very first one ever and you should see it in real life it is outstanding!!!  I quickly captured a picture of it on my blackberry phone as it is for my Grandmother & Grandfathers grave for Christmas.
Mum started her arrangement by soaking an oasis overnight, she then added some foliage that my neighbour gave her including beautiful holly and berries.
Mum's next step was adding in faux poinsettia which she sprayed with silver paint and a few gold acorns {you can see if you zoom in the photo} My Mum loves flowers and always said to me she would love to do flower arranging, so I encouraged her and she did it!! ;) and she found it so relaxing and calming.
She had her basket with handle all sprayed with gold paint and I am very proud of her and I shall continue to encourage her ... WELL DONE MUM!! ♥♥
