Easy challenge for me I LOVE Silver and I really don't like gold
Even all my jewelry is white gold which looks like silver
So that is why I choose silver.

I have used embossing paste and then made a vellum wrap
a little jute, cut a snowflake from Mirri card and then the word believe from kraft but added a little depth with some distress ink blending to the word.



Heres a close up as its difficult to see with the reflection

here are a few challenges I would like to play along with:



Christmas at Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes Christmas
Fab 'n' Funky - Christmas
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

I won't bore you with details as to why I was not around but I am
feeling much better now..

OK so Here I am with this fortnights As You Like It Challenge
your Favourite Christmas Colours (& why).





I am not one for fussy or fancy and the more I craft the more I realise
that C&S is my thing, Also when we decorate our house for Christmas I really
love clean and simple for that too and this holly digi stamp just shouted at me to use traditional colours of Red and Green so I guess this is my favourite.  




here are a few challenges I would like to play along with:



Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes Christmas

Sparkles Forum Christmas - Holly and or Ivy
Crazy 4 Challenges - add some for of sewing to your card

Since I have been feeling much better I have also been able to get in the garden and have a tidy and plant a few bulbs I love alliums so when I went to the flower show in harrogate a few months back I just had to buy some more :) 


Cant wait to see if they bloom but in the meantime I can enjoy this dried seed head



Hope you have a fabulous week/weekend hugs me xx

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using
your Favourite Colour Combo (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.


My favorite colour combinations hmmmm this is a another hard challenge
because it depend on what I am making and for whom?
My favourite colour is blue and I love blue and grey together
so I have made 2 crochet monkeys for my great nephews.... and in this case its my favorite combo for boy monkeys :)


The reason they have really long arms and short legs because

they are curtain hold back monkeys for their bedroom!
Crafty Gals Corner-#90 Critters! hopefully these critters are ok :)
Craft-Dee BowZ - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow - Bow Tie does that count?
Critters & Creatures Always Anything Goes with a Critter/Creature - Hope crochet is ok?

and a lovely little splash of colour from my garden.

These are seed pods from Iris's  

This is also new but I have forgotten the name, Doh!

This one is new to my garden, its like a red hot poker but its called a popsicle it's
a 3rd of the size of a normal red hot poker and a lovely blush colour as you can see.. 






I have some more to share but I will keep those for another day :)

Happy crafting xx
