gift card holder inspiration..

Thanks to Meredith over at escape2create who keeps finding cute ideas for decorating and all things Christmasy, i have made these very cute gift card holders and the tag garland. Pop on over and have a blog hoppsie around to see what else she has found.

Not many sleeps left now, hope you are all feeling all in the Christmasy mood,

a few more cards...

Just when Meredith thought i wasn't going to use these cutters....taaadaaa!!!

I happen to be looking after the grandies the other day...... & we got creative in my craft room....oh, the grandies love to get out in my room!!! So we put to good use Meredith's Christmas tree cuttlebug die and made some quick & easy Chrissie cards.....and the end result = cuteness!! (i am allowed to brag ey??) Evan very proudly took some home to share with his mum, and i thought i would send some off too.

Hope you all have a nice Sunday,

Xmas cards...

I was inspired by a recent Scrapbook Creations magazine to make this this years Christmas cards. Particularly Kirsty Piper's use of a Apron Lace punch to make a lacey effect with paper.

Here are my cards:

And now here is my pile of mail to do, Christmas card list, address book and note pad out ready to go!! I love to get mail but i always leave my run to send mail so late this time of the year!! My OS mail is all gone except a couple quick ones to do this morning, but the grand plan is to do the rest this weekend!! :)
Hope you are all going well with your Christmas plans,
Havew a nice day,
Sue xx

Rob's pics

Very early this monday morning, while i was on night shift, you could see in the sky that something big was brewing, the clouds and the colours .....and then an amazing thunderstorm blew in over Cummins. Rob was up early watching it and took some photos (which, i smile at, he's catching the bug too...heehee!!....) and i love the colours and the rainbow that he has captured....i just have to share with you!!
All straight from the camera too:

All taken looking north towards Cummins- normally seen Mickan's/ Dahlitz's Hill, but covered here in rain cloud and rainbow.....maybe the pot of gold can be found there!! :)

Thanks for looking,

Hope you are having a nice week!
