it is Sylvie's choice this week and I immediately thought about a stamp and die set I bought last year and still had not used.....





its called seated elf from stampendous.....I covered it in glossy accents hence the not so brilliant photo

old stash week 2....

well I was being good until my cricuit gave up on me...I have always promised myself a new one since they gave up support for my old expression and I could no longer access the on screen app....so now I have bitten the bullet...going to be fun learning a new machine....
I am still determined that all this years cards will be made using existing stash.....





I have used Heartfelt creations stamps and dies and the sentiment is Sue Wilson...
Hope you are having a lovely day today its miserable cold and wet here and we are forecast snow for tonight ...so perfect for crafting.....
thanks for popping by my blog I really appreciate it .

a windy day.....

well what a morning ..the wind is howling round the house definitely not a day to be venturing out ...so I have just finished off a card....





made using a paper boutique frame...an LOTV topper.....lots of glitter and a Marianne designs sentiment....I am really finding it hard to get back into crafting this year.... I think its because I am not buying anything new.....I am still being good ....
Hope you are having a lovely weekend and thank you for popping by today.

Christmas card challenge 1....Christine's choice ....snowflakes

the first challenge of 2019....and my new years resolution is to make all this years cards using existing stash.....I managed not to buy anything new for the last 3 month of the year so I am going to see how long I can do.....
this one is a clean and simple design.....



I used an old embossing folder...apple blossom let it snow...the snowflakes and the sentiment are from tonic...a nice simple start..
There is a list of the other girls in the groups blogs with links on my side bar...please pop and see their wonderful creations.....and thank you for visiting my blog today.
