and the rest.....

Hi Friends.

 I thought I had better share the rest of the 'down under' collection that has...arrived!...yes already in a couple of weeks!!....makes a change from 4 months! so here they are....

1st up the Christmas card for my Son and DIL...............

A lovely die and stamp set from...yes that's right Crafters I don't get paid for using/buying their    The die cuts out what is the red area on my card so you can layer it up etc.I kept it flat for posting. Coloured with Copics.

A while ago I was a lucky winner in a Uniko draw and have only just recently spent my prize...I chose the Alphabet stamps that you colour in and here are a couple of bookmarks that I made for the children. The letters are are the perfect fit !.......

The front.....

The back.....


All done with snippets of card and using  Crafters Companion animal tag dies, Cool how you get the back and front stamps to go with the die and can cut to any length you like!

Coloured again with copics and the spotty card on the back is Anna Marie. I stuck the two layers of white together, one it hides the bleed through from the copics and two, it made them more sturdy.

I am hoping Santa might bring them some books for Christmas and then they can use them.

So that's one tick off my card list...Australia...just the UK and the rest of the world to deal with now.....need to get my skates on!

I also included my DIL birthday card for January (how organised is that) in my packet...but sadly I forgot to photograph it .

Well back to mandatory face masks in shops and on public transport next week for the UK in view of this new variant! Nothing different for me then.....always wear a mask and don't travel on the bus/train. I hope it is not going to spoil Christmas again for a lot of people.

I will be back soon with a birthday card I made for my other DIL to be! Till then stay safe and well and THANK YOU for popping by. Any comments you leave me are valued more than you realise.

Wobblers on the way!

 Good Morning friends...its been a while I know, but life has got in the way again as it sometimes does. But I am here now and will visit you all soon.

People seem to have been having issues with blogger recently and getting strange messages. Those of you that got them regarding my blog....your comments came through Thank you very much, regardless of what blogger told you! please continue to leave them, each and every one is so much appreciated, and never taken for granted.

Wobblers?..yes lets get down to why you are here...a card...two even!!...currently en route to Australia for my grandchildren and hoping they get there before Easter! Thomas will be 6 in February and Chloe is 3 and a half time goes, and they grow up!

This one is for Thomas.....

I think the elf on the shelf may have sneaked passed immigration this year! after a negative Covid test of

.............and for Chloe

I dont suppose that they will be familiar with penguins, snow, scarves and hats...but hey ho...I'm not familiar with shorts and surf!

These are both made with Crafters Companion dies and stamps and on springs made from acetate...die included in each set. They all wobble...or did when they left me, but no doubt will be flattened in transit. On arrival they will need pulling to free them again...hope the kids don't pull too hard!

Both cards pretty self explanatory really.

So thats me for some chores to do, Sunday is not a day of rest here! The sun is shining, its dry but turned a lot colder with a sneaky wind so I guess it wont be long till we can say it is winter. I hate closing the curtains in the middle of the afternoon. I am definitely a sunshine and warmth kinda girl.

I hope you are all well , staying safe amid the Covid bugs, and getting your jabs as appropriate. I had my booster last problems,and still wear a mask when out and about.

So take care, I'll see you soon. Love to you all, ad to those celebrating Thanksgiving...have a Happy one! 😊

Must dash. I have a pressing engagement...yes that's right it's the...ironing!!
