Well can't believe it is Wednesday already let alone the last one before Christmas .Where has the time gone?So time to get on the sleigh and travel around the world to see what all these lovely crafters have been upto since last week.So first hop on the sleigh and off you fly to Julia's Blog the Boss of this wonderful Trip

This is my desk this week exactly the same as last week hu!I have cleaned away after i finished my first ever ...wait for it Configuration box yes i actually did one last weekend .You can see it Here .Love to know what you think?

I have now all my prezzies wrapped, still gotta get couple on friday.But all done packed away ready to go to dad's on thursday!Aint i a good crafting for next couple days prob till after christmas is over. But today is baking day .I have this beautiful receipe for scrummy Snickerdoodles ...cookies,and then some melting moments ,and my daughter will be baking as she promised her grandad a choco cake!So today the kitchen will be busy hopefully but one thing not good my oven making funny noise .Which aint so fingers crossed nothing serious gonna happen in that dept.Thats all i need before crimbo.I do have a friend with me today well every time i craft he's by my side under the table and today is no exception...."Bobbie"He lays on floor at my feet!My faith ful friend!

Oh one last thing i have some birthday ~Candy ~ on the go .As it's my birthday soon on 6th Jan when i will be another year younger.....ah well one can dream can't
Tim Holtz fans you will love this or should i say one of them as i have 2 candy's/2 prizes to givea way.You can check it out HERE . Please your all welcome to join in never know could be YOU....that wins ,don't know till you
Follow the instructions you wont be disappointed and all new goodies.
Plus after christmas just think you may be in for a belated christmas present.....As after all the hype it does seem to be quiet afterwards.Although seemed quiet yesterday we Went to tesco just to pick some bits up to take with us and for when we get back.I couldnt believe how quiet the shop was ,i tell you there was more food reduced due to not selling by due date than customers in shop.Well wasn't surprised think theyd all gone to Aldi! Mind i do love to shop there .The only thing i hate is you get to tills long que and only if your lucky i mean lucky 2 tills open!I do honestly think alot of people are cutting back this year and watching the pennies.....
Well i want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas may you have awonderful time .
Just think this time next week all over yep!and nearly into 2012 scary how the years seem to be flying bye

Simon Says Stamp and Show ....Oh Christmas

Good Morning from a very dark drab and snowy Norfolk.I have been busy doing a configuration box to add to my display on my window sill.But i got the idea from this weeks cchallenge over at Simons Days Stamp and Show the them is to show some Projects with Depth.So if you fancy joining you have 2 days left before closing. Also entering it into this months challenge over at the Artistic Stamper the theme is Christmas .

ABC Christmas Challenge :Anything Goes Christmas .Ive had soo much trouble getting good photos so dark this morning.But here goes i hope you like my creation.
The papers ive used are from Graphic 45 ,Tim Holtz Configuration box,Grunge ideology seasonal shapes the lamp,ideology glass bottle,and TimHoltz tissue tape.Antique linen Distress inks.Flower soft White snow,flowers from my stash as well as the ornaments santa,mrs santa and sleigh.Corners and snowflake from Funkie Junkie ESTY Shop.

Ilined the box with the graphic 45 papers then added tissue tape .I used Antique line D/Inks all over the edges.Added flower soft snow to the bottom of the configuration compartments.
I used bottle cap and added a wee stamped image then glossy accents ontop.In the corner is an altered domino with beautiful image from Denziworld then added small gems around the edges.
The light ive used black soot d/I and then for the light it self i have used Stampendous Glitzy glitter Tigerlily, The walls on one is stamped sentiment naughty or nice in d/inks antique linen on opposite wall is a embellishment from bo -bunny.
The compartment on the left has Mrs Claus in with a wee arrangement ive made form Tim Holtz greenery die and small wooden spool added pearl pin which ive made so looks like a wee floral arrangement Large gem star to the side . Top left is the metalic filigree star ,small ideology bottle full of snow.The Noel hanging is from my stash think i originally purchased last year at card shop,but never used.You can also see the ceramic wreath hanging from the mail compartment. Thats also from my Crimbo crafty stash last years!The reinderr ive inked with distress inks and added wee holly charm around it's neck.

The flowers i have arranged are from my stock Prima &
Wild orchard crafts,Lastly i added string of pearls to main compartment to make it look like a fence .
Well i hope you like my christmas creation which once dry will go on my window sill with the others i posted on wednesday.
Have good weekend ,stay safe and warm

Tims 12 Tags For Christmas Tag 12....Last one for 2011

This is the final tag of Tim Holtz 12 Tags for Christmas so sad it is finished .However ive learnt some fab new techniques and love this one.Now with this tag i have improvised again my wee white ideology doll just didnt look right so have used an image.Secondly i hadnt got any of Tim's tissue paper .So for the that i made my own i used normal white tissue paper stamped with Archival black ink.Silent Night stamp which im sure was from Magnolia one some years ago.I followed Tims Tag Technique for day 12 just the same Here. I have to say even though i used my own tissue it came out just the same !So you can improvise and get inspired!

Added the alphabet letters from the grunge seasonal pack used inka gold on Rubbed in to get that wee sparkle.Tim holtz rossette die and the wee snowflake and beautiful charms in the corner where from Funkie Junkie's esty shop HERE.Added cream lace ,with pearls adhered to and wee cream bow!

I have totaly enjoyed creating and being inspired by the 12 tags this year and well roll on next year will be my 6th Year!

love n hugs

My Take on Tims Tag 8

Good Morning hope your all well,and those of you living up there in Scotland do hope your safe and haven't had much damaged caused to property from those high gales.Would love some snow mind.

Well i managed to finish my tag last night after avery stressful time yesterday.But shall go into that another day.Then i did get abig surprise that cheeered me up know end my winning Candy arrived from the Craft Barn thanks to everyone there still looking through the box!

I managed to get Tim's day 8 tag done isnt time flying buy only few tags left.

So my tag 8,you can check out the techniques used Here on Tims Blog

You will see i have improvised by using a Metal wording charm Joy.Also the men i have used different ones. Wow who would have thought Steampunk and christmas would go together.I certainly wouldnt have put them together before this.So Tim's Tag has inspired me to go out of my comfort zone!

I would like to enter this into Simon Says Stamp & Show .This week is show some element of Time.

Keep warm and safe from this horrid weather.If your going crimbo shopping this weekend just push everyone else does ,ive learnt that on Tuesday!lol

Thursday Tim'S Tags 6 &7

Well im hoping this is uploading as it was planned to uploade wednesday @12.01am.So second time lucky and thought i nay as wekk add wednesday tag 7 also .Have to say this technique and tag is mt fav.So all inspiration taken from Tims tag found HERE

This is my creation from the inspiration of his tag everything is the same except:

holly ,i used my gassilin papers for the greenery die cut ,i aded oddments of grunge board and made twigs as i havent got that die.I have alos added reindeer charm to center of the hollyarrangemnet.The sentiment is stampin up this years christmas release.

Here done smae technique to Tim but also used on edges of grenery and twigs.

I think this has to be my favup to know dajarvo maybe do i say this everytime a createatag...this i adore.Hope you do to.

Tag 7

this tag i used all the same techniques as Tim but hadnt got that embossing folder everyone but that.So i used my large crimbo tree and used the dabbers in blue pink,&white.
Every thing else was same can be found HERE

Close up of the beautiful bunch blue holly leaves with glitter edges pearls that have been died as in tag 7 that tim showed us how to die berries.The silver one from stash,Still unsure wether i like it or not .Wonder what you think

Aee you all later for tag 8 whihc will beuploaded at 80.1am (gmt) see what creative flare he hafor this tag 8 flying by now girls be only few more days :(!!

love n hugs keep warm girls from scotland think your having it worse than my dad otherside Newcastle!
