Hello peeps! This will be my last blog post until after the New Year so I'd like to wish you all a very
Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year 2011!!!

I'd also like to thank all the people who have visited my blog during 2010, I always look forward to hearing from you so thank you so much for taking the time to pop by and leave a comment! I will leave you with two Christmas cards that I made this week (better late than never)... the first one was an experiment using real stitching (I don't do REAL stitching, but gave it a go). The cute robin image was a freebie from Imag-e-nation, I coloured it with Promarkers and the ticket was a kind freebie from HERE...

I'm entering my robin card into the Mega Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' at Passion For Promarkers.
Wags n Whiskers 'Snowflakes'.

The second card is a recipe card using this really cute Bugaboo snowman, again coloured with Promarkers. I found the recipe on the internet, I have included the preparartion method for the recipe inside the card, but my camera died on me before I could photograph it. The little ticket was a freebie from Jami, you can find them HERE ...

I'm entering my card into the challenge at Catch the Bug Challenge 'It's time to make cookies'.
Totally Gorjuss 'for Someone Special).
Simon Says Stamp 'Anything Goes'.

Best Wishes, back in 2011!
