well it feels like....

...the middle of winter so I thought I might as well crack on with the Christmas stuff :) lol

As I generally make my own square card blanks from A4 card , I always wonder what to do with that pesky little bit that's left over. Well here is my solution, they are the perfect size for tags :)

I used a selection of distress inks 
that gorgeous Christmas tree stamp from WRS from The Stamp Basket
And a selection of mis-matched snowflakes from differing old sets I have
A added a spot of glamour dust and punched a whole
 and voila all ready to have a nice bit if ribbon threaded through

I plan on making a ton of these....maybe this year I WILL get ahead ,,I know what your thinking .....yeh right you keep telling yourself that pickle

A little bunny love....

Hi all,
I promised myself I wouldn't start this post with the weather but oh my lord isn't it awful???
 I am deffo suffering with SAD this year. I feel so down in the dumps and no amount of talking myself round is working. Mojo has gone, been washed away no doubt! usually when I'm feeling like this we go for a long walk down the canal/pub lunch to try and blow the cobwebs off but by gawd we went down there the other day and it's like a bog :( scared I might fall in although the way I am at them mo I think hubby would be pleased if I did . lol

Anyway enough moan, moan ,moan, (I know sorry) And on to my card

Today I used a new kit from

Isn't he adorable? The papers are stunning too
You can find the kit 

I printed the bunny directly onto one of the patterned papers
made a few flowers added some sewing and a sentiment I made myself
The ribbon, pearls , glitter are from The Stamp Basket

Thanks for stopping by today
I think I'm gonna try and settle down with a good book. It's days like these when I wish I had one of those great big over sized armchairs to snuggle up on with a big that would be heaven :)
