2 Sleeps To Go!

Good morning! Well only 2 sleeps to go, are you all sorted for the arrival of the man in the red suit? I had a mammoth day of cleaning yesterday. We are off to visit my mum and dad today then tomorrow we need to collect the turkey and make the chocolate hazelnut cheesecake for Christmas Day pud THEN we are off to see the new Hobbit film. I need to fit in making the mince pies, not quite sure when this is going to get done though! We are staying home alone this year and I can't wait for 2 days just the 4 of us chilling, eating, watching tv and playing games :-)

Here are my last couple of festive cards. I used a decoupage pack that came with a recent Docrafts magazine. I love the traditional feel of the first image...

I am always a sucker for a cute cat image...

Good morning peeps, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts today and our theme is 'Last Minute Gifts' hosted by the lovely Helene. This challenge theme will last for 2 weeks. Our wonderful sponsor is Marianne Design.

I made some mini calendars and matching keyrings to give to the people I work with at school. They were simple to make using some beautiful Peter Rabbit images from Nicecrane Designs.

I decided to make a gift box for some sweets to give as a little gift at Christmas. I used the tutorial here for the measurements, it is so simple to make but a beautiful shape I think.
