Baby It's cold outside......

Actually it's cold inside as well so I have just put my heating back on. I have been out today for a lovely day with a friend, shopping and a scrummy lunch - a little treat for her Birthday. Lots of people about doing their Christmas shopping, I must get a move on and finish mine now , I planned to be done by the beginning of December but I think I will fail miserably there!

I 've been making my Christmas wish list to give hubby and my girls a few ideas - top of my list is a scor-pal this year and a few other items of stash of course. My colleagues think I am mad, they all ask for perfume or jewellery and I ask for cardboard and paper! Oh well they don't know what they're missing do they girls?

Talking of stash here are a couple more projects I did for Poppicrafts this month, thank you for the lovely comments about my baby cards I appreciate each and every one of them.

I made these little candy cane holders just for fun really - one each for Michelle's little ones. My girls are nearly grown up now but they still love candy canes and insist on hanging a box full on the tree each year (much to my disgust as I like my tree to look just right!) I used some more of my favourite 25mm ribbon on these, and I just love this paper for Christmas.

This card is another take on the pink one I did a couple of weeks ago - Very time consuming but worth it, and I used up so many little old gems that I had gathering dust! Don't you just love these little fabric brads?

And lastly these two were a bit self indulgent really, a gift bag made from an envelope using my favourite stamp at the moment and the vegetable patch embellishment kit from Poppicrafts. And a little holly wreath again just for fun, I rarely use my die cutters these days so it was fun to cut out all the leaves and use more of my favourite ribbon - this time in red and team it with some red buttons.

All ribbon, blooms and buttons from Poppicrafts, eveything else from my stash mountain.

thanks for looking, I love reading your comments,

And just so beautiful they all are too... they are currently on show high up, but naturally they are asked for every day. Yesterday I popped to tescos and bought some plastic candy canes for the tree. Riley had a rummage through the box today and thought they were the ones you had made, good job he didnt take a bite. Sounds like you had a lovely day. Oh it so nice to sit down,eat good food and soak up the festive atmosphere. I could quite happily sit in a restaurant and watch the world go by at this time of year - fantastic! Give it a few years and youl'l probably have little hands pulling your christmas tree down, so make the most of it. Do you think you could take a photo when its up I would just love to see it...
