Blasted lurgy is still hanging on with a throat that feels like I've swallowed a bag of nails but hopefully I will be able to catch up today with most of blogs and challenges.
Check out Bev's blog she has some great candy not only WOJ stamp, one that I don't have she has also added some of her fab crochet snowflakes.
Also Ila's blog has had 100,000 hits and celebrating with some candy too

Lucky for me this little chap was already loaded on my PC its for Kazan sketch #14 on 2sketches4you. I've used my Stamps Away Owl on some BG I think its Offbeat and cut him out and layered him. The sentiment is Whisper Stamps and the lovely lace is from a Scrapagogo kit, not forgetting the Quickutz swirls.
Sorry Folks going back to bed.

My little nephew is totally potty about Bob the Builder, now I know this chap isn't Bob he is cute and I thought he would be more useful than Bob. The papers are K & Co and I've used Ismaki #41 sketch but I had to flip it and the number 2 is instead of the half circle. The number was cut out on the cricut. Hopefully Jake's parents don't check my blog but I know Granny does.

These are the tools of trade, the most important is the cocktail stick which I use with the silcone glue.

So today I'm off to Art and Authors in Fleet to take a class with Francoise Read, I believe we're using the reindeer stamps, then I'm at my Sis waiting for hubby to finish working with BIL. Mmmmm I think I'll take some card and an inkpad and raid my Sis stamp collection, second thoughts, no I won't, she has J this weekend he might want to help and at only two I think there will be more ink on him then the stamps.

wait for it,
it was there just couldn't see it.
I made this with the sketch on Everybody-Art-Challenge in mind and also the challenge on Papertake weekly was for Let it Snow, so between the two I came up with this card. It should of have been nice and easy but I struggled a bit to get the right size on the cricut and I wasn't happy with the size of the S because it looked smaller than the other letters when I did it the same size so I settled for larger. The letters are all cut from Base Camp Cricut cartridge.

I've been really good all my Christmas Cards have inserts in now and I've done a count and I'm still short. I really need some quick and easy cards and thin cards, my cards do tend to be a bit bumpy.

And look what Joey sent me, I know I have had it before but it still a brilliant feeling when another crafter appreciates your blog.

I can't help it but I'm loving the new Magnolia stamps aren't these two so cute.I followed Murmur's sketch for Friday Sketchers although I have turned it and the buttons have been replaced by the acetate with stickles on which I used for the ice rink. The embossed snowflakes have also been glittered but photo's don't always show it but I can promise you its there and all over me too. The ribbons are from Poppicraft, papers Doodlebug again and all the stamps are Magnolia.
Blogger is being a pain everytime I replace a word or correct a spelling its' writing over what I've already written and it driving me potty. So I'm not checking for typos or just plain bad grammer.
Today I'm off to Scrapbuddies at Mychett Community Centre it should be a quiet one because FairyKaren is at Scrap-a-ganza and even though Valelady is in Holland she isn't with Karen but hopefully will be sitting down with Janet to maybe start a crop blog to keep everyone up to date with the crops etc.
