Create your own page and put the link on her blog! Fab Fun Idea!
Here's mine (clicking on each picture should take you to the original post):

And that's my lot! It's amazing what us crafter's can do in one year. I don't think we really appreciate ourselves enough! So...go on. Give yourselves a big pat on the back! And here's to another fab craft-filled year.

Happy Boxing Day everyone!
Hope you all had a Jolly good day yesterday. We had bags of fun!
Quick post today. I had to make a batch of last minute Christmas cards, purely because I couldn't bear to part with some of the ones I've made this year (is anyone else like that?!), so I didn't quite have enough. I chose this gorgeous wintry image from "Delicious Doodles", edged it with burgundy Promarker and I've colured the door in the same colour. That's all it needed! A bit of ribbon and a sentiment, and bish bash bosh, ten cards made! Simples!
Off to my sister's now for more fun and frolics!

Hi everyone! Second post of the day. This is my DT make for The Crafter's Cafe and the theme this week is "Make it Sparkle". How easy is that?!
We are sponsored by Fred She Said and I have used this gorgeous image called "Catchin' Flakes"....isn't it cute?!
I've coloured the image with Promarkers and layered it onto mirri card. The background paper is from Dovecrafts "Winter Wonderland". For my SPARKLE I have used Twinklets as snow, some sparkly organza ribbon, and I've coated two MDF snowflakes with German Glass Glitter.
Pop over to Fred She Said to find some digis, some pre-colured toppers and fab ideal place to go if you need to make some last minute quicky cards!
Let's see you shine in our new challenge!

Good morning everyone. Hope you are all in a festive mood! Today's challenge over at Rhedd and Rosie's is "Let It Snow"...we want to see lots of snow on your projects!
I have made a card using magazine freebies to which I've added some snowy ribbon, a bargain I picked up from our local garden centre. It only cost me 20p for just over a metre!
Happy days.
The challenge will run for the next fortnight and here's the prize that's up for grabs:
Wouldn't mind winning that myself!
So, get your thick woolies and wellies on, and let the snowball fight commence!

Hello everyone.
Second card of the day, and it's my DT make for The Crafter's Cafe. 
I've called it "Drunken Santas" because, as you can see, I didn't quite stick them on straight! It's a fun card...what can I say!
The "Little Santa" image is from our sponsor this week:
And our challenge is to "Use RED and lots of it!" I've used a piece of paper from Papermania Mistletoe Kisses, which is  mainly red. The green dotty strip and sentiment are from the same pack. Little Santas have been coloured in with Promarkers and stuck (drunkenly) onto the card! Finished off with a few red pearls.
Come over and join in our RED challenge.

Good Morning everyone. Hope all is fine and dandy with you.
My card today is my DT make for Rhedd and Rosies blog, where for the next fortnight, the challenge is "Use Old Stash". Easy!
I stood in my craft room and had a good look round, and spotted some burgundy velvet paper I'd forgotten I had. So that's what I chose to use. I've used a Kraft card as my base, added a strip of frayed burlap and some burgundy ribbon. This is topped with a gorgeous poinsettia cut from the velvet paper. I've used a sequin and tiny bead, possibly the "oldest" things in my stash, to finish the poinsettia off.
The prize up for grabs this week is:

Looking forward to seeing your "Old Stash" makes.
