6 Days to go........

Hi Crafters,

There are just 6 days left to get every thing done before the big day!!.!!!!!..!! I still have loads to do, I still have some shopping to do, crackers to make, tree to put up and decorate, cards still to write and presents to wrap. I do have a terrible habit of leaving things to the last minute LOL. Oh well it wouldn't be Christmas to me if I got every thing done with time to spare. I just love that last minute rush and panic to make sure things are done. I'm just a glutton for punishment.

I just want to take the time now ( just in case I don't get the time later) to wish you all the very Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year. And I hope Santa brings you his most special gift of love and happiness, wrapped up in family and friends.

Thanks for dropping by and paying me a visit. See you again soon. :)

Make a card a present

Hi Crafters,

I got the inspiration for these cards from Pat a crafting friend of mine. I hadn't seen one before so had to make one myself. Then I just had to make one for another friend of mine for her birthday.
        










This is a Christmas present card closed and the first one I made.











And now the card open.
As you lift the lid of the present the teddy pops up.















  I loved making the first card so had to make one as a birthday card, and gave me the the idea for my friends birthday.





















And this is the one I made for my friend.











Well that's all for now. Thank you for visiting and see you again soon.

A bit of Snow...!!!!

Hi Crafters,

Not much crafting done today. With so much of the white stuff falling out of the sky it took me 1 and a half hours to get home last night. ( I only live 2 miles away from the shop )

This morning I walked  into Heanor.  I took a few photos on the way.



These photo's were taken just out side Smalley village, about 8.30am this morning.














And this is what greeted us when we got to the shop. Lorries just couldn't get up the hill past the shop.

At one point there was 8 lorries stuck on Derby Road.









In an effort to get up the hill the leading lorry ends up stuck in the middle of the road.










I didn't stay at the shop all that long, just long enough to phone the ladies to cancel the classes that were scheduled for today. Not that anyone would turn out in this lot but  you never know.


The next photo's were taken on the way home.



















Later in the day I took the dog for a walk.



























The snow is just beautiful but boy it has caused a lot of disruption. Dan our lab didn't look as though he minded all that much. In fact he was loving it.

I hope it's not that long before things can get back to normal.
