Just a quick post to wish all my lovely readers a very merry Christmas and Happy 2010.

This will be my last post now probably until new year... My Mum is back in hospital so my time is very limited :(

Thank you all so much for all your lovely comments and sticking with me especially over the last few months cos I haven't had much to show you have I? lol
Hopefully 2010 will be a much better year..Fingers crossed XXXX

Luv to you all

snowman soup

Been making these today for stocking fillers for my great nieces and nephews.

I have done eight this afternoon only another 8 to go lol

mug from bargain store
2 sachets of hot chocolate
bag of mini marshmallows
bag of choc chips
candy cane

cello wrap from ebay
printed labels myself

The other side of the tag reads:

One day I met a snowman
Frosty was his name
He told me his secret recipe
For snowman soup, he claimed

On the days he gets really chilly
He makes a yummy brew
And since it’s such a lovely treat
I thought I’d share it with you

Open up your soup packet
And pour into your cup
Add hot water to the mix
Take the cane and stir it up

Add some snowman kisses
And a few snowballs for fun
It’s sure to warm your spirits
When the winter day is done

I was going to make little boxes to put the ingredients in but when I spotted these mugs in home bargains for 59p!!! what a bargain and save me a lot of cutting out too lol

I hope all your xmas preparations are going well. Mine are not!! lol
Not enough hours and all that :(

Better get off now and do some more!!

rudolph the recycled reindeer

First of all I just want to say thank you soooo much for all the lovely messages and good wishes for my mum. I am pleased to report she is now out of hospital :) hooray!! She has been quite poorly. Not helped by picking up E coli while she was in there!! Which ment her being but in isolation and what with her lack of vision you can imagine how depressed she became. But thankfully she is deffo on the mend now :)))))

Anyways on to my card . I made a batch of these a few weeks ago. The "kraft" card which Rudolphs head is cut from is actually the boxes which my papermillshop card came in and the antlers and nose are cut from bits of card and funky foam from my scrap draw or should I say mountain? I really must try and throw some of it away (yeh right)lol

I inked around the edges and hand drew the eyes/ mouth. The merry christmas is froma 99p studio g set. I punched the snowflakes from DST paper and added glaour dust to finish.

Off now to hopefully get a good nights sleep... Not getting much of that just lately, so fingers crossed xxxx

Hope you like and thanks for stopping by
