I love the little flower pot on this one.
Once again without my crafting I know I would be feeling sorry for myself....

I love both the fairies and the polar bears this year. I am so pleased with the colour scheme.
I had totally different ideas for my cards until I went cyber shopping and found these winter fairies... then my mind was made up!
I am also pleased with the way some of my peel offs work with these, even though they were left over from last year.
These are the final ones today, as you can tell the picture is rubbish, but you get the idea.
I hope to get some more made of this size then I will work on making larger ones for close family members.
I think the fairies work really well on both the background papers.
I have included each fairies name on the cards, as I hope to pop the description of each one on the back of each card.
Below are the really cute Polar bears, I fell in love with these too and just had to use them this Christmas. I love adding glitter, just that I end up covered in it too!
I hope that everyone who has a card from us this year loves them as much as I do. Though my photos are a little shaky, not the best focus this time!

Even after all the work I had done... I sat down this morning with time to spare.... Finally my christmas card making has started. I made 6 basic cards that look great already, they still need embellishments and greetings added which I will do tomorrow. Its great to say they are being made! ( I had said so often that I needed to start them)
Once again I have been unable to chat to my friends, but I am sure they know how much I care about them, and how much I miss talking to them. I know they will keep up to date with me some how.... I just have to be patient.

I took inspiration from the french words meaning air mail and the butterfly.
No surprise for people who know me well, butterflies are a favourite of mine, so I used the french word for butterfly 'papillon' and made the ATC below.
This is the front.
Looking at it now, I have noticed it needs some kind of colour added to the edges, so I think a little bit of inking is in order... just hope i dont mess it up now!
The butterflies on the front were heat embossed using a bright pink powder, I think it makes them stand out really well. I haven't done heat embossing for a while so it was nice to have a play while I had all the things out.
And then below is how it looks on the inside. I wanted to make this into something quite different so I have added an atc into the swap that opens up. I look forward to seeing how the next person takes inspiration from this.
This is the only crafting I have done today!Unusual for me though I know!
I have great news that I have a further order for another bracelet and gift box/tin. So I am very pleased to be doing another order.

I am Happy to say that everyone who has bought a bracelet off me has been very pleased with them. I know I am shouting about my own success, but if I don't then who will?!
Its not taken over my life but I have been able to keep everything up to date.
Here are some of my most recent cards, I just wish I could have the same selling power with these as I do my bracelets! Card making is my favourite pass time I just wish people would want to buy them. Its my own fault getting a lot of my family members into making cards. I lost out on some really good customers!
I really like this little bear, so I had to use the image a couple of times.These two cards are a personal favourite, I asked a friend to design this image into a 3d decoupage sheet which she did. I love the way the card turned out.
Another of my Favourite pictures again!
Cute doggie again, for my neighbours Daughter, she had hurt her chin and had to have hospital treatment. I wanted to cheer her up :-)
There is a real mixed bag of cards here, it just shows you how much my ideas jump around in my head just recently. My mind is constantly thinking of things do to or things that need doing!
No wonder sometimes my head will not let me sleep.

I have also kept up being creative but, not had much chance to blog it yet.
My dear Son has enjoyed his first day at school all day, though he did say he didn't like having lunch there. considering its a packed lunch! Though he did say one friend goes home for dinner... I am not going down that road! I will post new crafty picture as soon as I can.

I really love this teddy bear sheet, she is so sweet. I managed to do another picture on a smaller scale for an ATC.
Below is the 4th tin I have Altered, I think so Far this one has to be my Favourite.
I really love these embossed stickers, They are a delight to use and to give on cards or even my tins.
There were two cards very much the same though the boarders were different.
I have made this card for my sister, she is truly my best friend. I love to send her a card every now and then to show her how much she means to me.
