Celebrate Christmas

I dusted off and had a play with one of our older Christmas stamp sets yesterday and here's what I came up with...

Stamps - All In Onesie Christmas, Modern Calligraphy (coming soon) & Merry Calligraphy Additions / Dies - All In Onesie Christmas Die Collection & Modern Calligraphy Die Collection (coming soon) / Stencils - Snowflake Flurry Stencil / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; Memento Tuxedo Black; VersaMagic Dew Drop Red Magic / Colouring Medium - Copic Sketch Markers; FaberCastell Polychromos

Stamps - All In Onesie ChristmasScrumptious Holidays & Say What? / Dies - All In Onesie Christmas Die Collection & You Said It Die Collection / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; Memento Tuxedo Black; Versamark / Colouring Medium - Copic Sketch Markers; FaberCastell Polychromos / Other - White Embossing Powder

I have to admit, now that the children are getting older and almost entering their teenage years *gasp* I'm not as enthusiastic about Christmas preparation as I once was.  There's no substituting that magic of them genuinely believing in Father Christmas and the utter delight on Christmas morning that comes with it *sigh*  I love that my children are growing up and becoming young adults but I do miss those early years...I'm getting a bit emotional now so I think I'll leave it there ;)

Happy Tuesday, I hope you have a great one! :)

Sincere Thanks

You may have to pop your sunglasses on for this card, it's a little bright!...

Stamps - Woodland Plushies & Scrumptious Thank You / Dies - Woodland Plushies Die Collection; Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; Memento Tuxedo Black / Colouring Medium - Copic Sketch Markers

I hope you had a great weekend, such a pity they go by so quickly though...I think I have a spot of the Monday blues but hopefully some time spent in my craftroom will cure that ;)

Hope you have a great day!

All I Want For Christmas Is You

I know there are many who think it's still far too early to be thinking about Christmas, but I'm guessing none of those people are crafters...for us, it's never too early ;) hahaha!

Stamps - Gorgeous Gifts & All I Want / Dies - Gorgeous Gifts Die Collection; Lawn Fawn Stitched Hearts / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black / Colouring Medium - Faber Castell Polychromos

I can't tell you how happy I am that it's Friday!  My husband returns from his business trip tonight so I'm looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend with him and the children :)

Happy Friday and I hope you have a truly wonderful weekend!

Sparkle & Shine

Without a doubt, my go to stamps for quick and easy last minute Christmas cards are the Christmas Sparkle sets...

Stamps - Christmas Sparkle, Christmas Sparkle Again & Hang Around / Dies - Hang Around Die Collection / Ink - VersaMagic Dew Drops; VersaMark / Other - White Embossing Powder

I'm sorry if I've been a nuisance today with my multiple postings, it's so quick and easy to upload pictures to Facebook and Instagram that I mainly forget to update here.  Despite the extremely low (and getting lower by the day haha!) number of visitors, I still think it's worthwhile keeping it going :)

Thank you so much for looking and I hope you have a lovely Thursday :)
