Wednesday, December 5


December is a very hard month for me, as my mom died on Christmas Day and this year is even harder as its her 10th anniversary.

I miss her very much but she made me promise to continue to enjoy Christmas no matter what, as it was her favourite time of the year.

She used to make such a fuss bought way too much food and always made sure my brother and i had an equal amount of presents.

Anyway i have to try and keep myself busy during December even more than with all the Christmas organising so i have made a few more Christmas cards i know i am not as anywhere near as good a crafter as some of my friends but it keeps me happy.

This card was made using Christmas vellum and i glued on a metal Holly embelishment and printed the names from the computer then just went around the edges with silver inkpad.

3 cards i made from a qvc tsv, i think i must have been the only person i know to have bought this tsv :) as everyone was saying they did not like it !!!! but i did and have really enjoyed using all the items in it....

Autumn in October

I finally got around to making this months CSF Scrapbook challenge page, all the pictures were taken from my garden, i especially love to see leaves fallen into the pond and the fish trying to eat them thinking its food.. Unfortunatley i could'nt get closer to the Cherry tree without falling into the pond to get a good photo of its gorgeous burgandy colour.
