Let It Snow....

 The challenge on Anything Goes this week was Let It Snow.....I could resist this digi stamp with the cute dog! That would be Daisy up to mischief, she would knock the head of the snowman and hide!
I often send christmas cards to my foster dogs and their new families so I can see me making a few of these! Ive had a great day today, shopping with the girls, then saw the Christmas lights being switched on in Chesterfield.
Here is my Mum, Isabel and my sister Rachel.
 Isabel and her Daddy enjoying the rides
Im working away again for the next two weeks so Ive cleared all my craft stuff away today, I really missed home last time. Kathryn, you made me chuckle with your comments, the OH knows he is bottom of the pack, lol!

Glad to be back home......

What a week! I missed home loads! I have been working away and hated every minute of it, so glad to be back. Just before I went away I was blog hopping and found a great site with digital images Delightful Inspirations Ive never used a digital image before but have seen so many of you blog about them. Im hooked! The site as got some great doggy related ones for Christmas. I have painted the image with Distress Inks...dont look too close! Im still practicing!!!
It was my monthly sewing class this Saturday, we made a great envelope bag which I  going to use to take my basic craft stuff to classes. A kind friend had some hand made pottery buttons which went great with my seaside related fabric, thanks Ann, and to Sarah for showing us how to make it. It is very clever little bag with lots of pockets, it is made from one wadded square of fabric.
Here's Luna, I was amazed at how big she had grown whilst I had been away!

I hate goodbyes....

 Today, Angus our old fella went to his retirement home, in Brighton! He will be missed, we loved his character, the oldies are so much fun. We wont be fostering for a while now we have Luna, I definately got my hands full there!
Ive been having a play with the Big Shot this week, Ive discovered what that tan rubber mat is for! Its amazing what you learn when you read the instructions...Lol! I cut some snowflakes out of a cereal box then used them to emboss my back ground before triple embossing them.I had great fun, I only made one card but played for a few hours! I am working away this week so up early tomorrow, I'm not looking forward to it, I will miss my gang , Daisy, BJ and Luna x

B is for Bell

This is my card for this week's Anything Goes Challenge.The challenge is the letter B...for bell! I have decide to take a break from the Craft Den Design Team due to my hectic home life at the moment but had already made this at the weekend.
 I have triple embossed a wooden bell shape with Blonde Moments Ultra thick embossing powder, then stamped into it with a christmas sentiment stamp. I have also stamped a poinsetta and added some gold pearl pen to finish the card off.
Finally I added pearls, punched foliage and a home made paper get a move on I now have 4 dogs to walk!
