Now that Christmas is Over

Now that Christmas is over I can put a picture of the cards I made for my Daughters, Grandaughter, Sister,  Neice and Great Nephew

These cards were cased so thank you for the inspiration
  here is a picture of our lounge on Christmas Eve after all the pressies had been wrapped ( which took hours to wrap but a much shorter time to open ), the room tidied and everyone except me, was in bed, you can just see my daughter asleep on the settee, my neice was on the other settee, what a houseful we had.

For the Xmas Table

While surfing the net  ( as we do ) I found a Tutorial for a Ketto Caddy and decided to have a go at making one needless to say I am quite pleased with how it turned out, it didn't take long to put together which I did on Friday night and then stamped the images and finished it off last night. When my Daughter saw it she asked if I was going to fill it with Lollies for Xmas.

A Demo in the training ?

This afternoon my Grandaughter decided she had to stamp stamp (as she calls it) while I tried to make a card (which is inpossible when your babysitting a nearly 3 year old) and of course Olivia had to use my stamps rather than hers she knows which ones are nicer. Here we are using Season of Joy.


 The stamp stamp comes from tapping the stamp on the ink pad more than once, and usually manages to keep her fingers off the ink pad as well.
