Sad news :-(

This is the first Saturday in several years that I am not bringing you news of the new Allsorts challenge and pictures of my DT work. I have found it increasingly difficult to find the time & inclination of late to craft and also catch up on the blogs I love following. So, I made made the decision to step down from the Allsorts DT. I have loved every minute of being part of such a fabulous team and will miss the ladies deeply but I am hoping after some rest my crafting mojo will reignite and I will find the time to reestablish my links with the blogging world. So my little piece of the www may be a bit of a blank space in the coming weeks but please bear with me x

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...

Last Minute Gifts

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.

 All 6 calendars together...
