Furry Friends at Fussy and Fancy Friday

I think I may have stretched the theme a tiny bit here but Lions and Tigers are definitely furry and Elephants are kind of hairy - and they look kind of friends to qualify for the Furry Friends challenge at Fussy and Fancy this time round it was going to be lions and tigers and bears in true Wizard of Oz style but Jellybean from Whimsy stamps insisted on joining in the fun with paper from Sassy Designs and sentiment from Lili of the Valley

Merry Merry Christmas


A Merry Christmas to everyone I'm sharing my hubby and daughter's card as we always give them Christmas Eve


Images are from Stampfairy, Little Scraps of Heaven and alphas were a freebie last year from the Clipart Fairy

I hope you all have a wonderful day and thank you for dropping by and looking at my creations.
Back Soon

Whimsy Challenge Reminder

Anything goes so long as it's festive at Whimsy Inspires is the current challenge and you still have time to get your entries in.

I've used Christmas Birdhouses 10  by Moon Cookie Gallery for my final Christmas card of the year.
Sorry for the weird colours in the picture but it doesn't seem to get light here just at the mo.

TUSAL

And I'm running very very late for the last TUSAL update of the year we finally have some Christmas decorations but seem to have mislaid the main box full some where in the move - it was desperate enough to get me up in the loft although I did have to have a bit of help to get back out again. No idea where they went but suppose it's a good time to replace them. we do have the trees and the lights but it's just a bit sad to be without some of the other things.
And here's santa!!!! Anyone who knows him will have fainted in shock I spent quite a while falling about in fits of giggles as he is the most anti Christmas person I know fortunately I resisted the urge to dress up as one of his elves.

Boys Card

Sometimes you just regret not buying a stamp and this is one of those times - fortunately my friend was not so restrained. I've stamped it on Kraft and just highlighted some bits with sakura pens.

EDIT: I've had a couple of queries about the stamp it's by Magenta and according to Google is called sail away trio

Cute Little Rabbit

I'm a huge fan of the stampfairy although I don't use her images as often as I would like and found this cutie printed off in a pile of neglected digis. Sorry for the rubbish photos it's been so dark here recently but I now have a cunningly constructed light box type thing :0)

Team B are in charge over at Teddy Bo for our anything goes challenge this time so I found this card that I hadn't posted that was made with a vintage Fairy Doodler design (you can use those to enter as well).

We also have the last new release for the year as we're all really busy with the big "C" word and the boss has something new up her sleeve for the New Year

Whimsy Challenge Reminder


Our Traditional Christmas colours challenge is still running at Whimsy right now so you still have time to play along and you don't even need to use a Whimsy stamp to join in.

I've used one of Raindrop Echo Designs Season's Greeting Sentiments for my card with some bright red ribbon that I bought in Tesco for pence last January. The paper is from a really old Papermania pack called Secret Garden.

Another Book



I absolutely loved this - a murder detective novel but with lots of life story background. If you like Susan Hills Serrailler series then you'll enjoy it too although it is set on the Isle of Lewis and uses some Scottish phrases that may sound a bit odd to English ears. I made me smile as it was like having my father -in-law in my head.

In the name of the wee man!!!

Teddy Bo Tuesday - Again


Today I've made a tag for a change with this real cutie that I've nicknamed Boman lol!

Barry!

This little guy always makes me smile possibly as my older brother is called Barry too - he's from Stampfairy.
The papers are from one of the very first collections from Lili of the Valley so probably qualify as vintage by now it's great what you find when you move..........

The card blank was cut on my Silhouette am so glad I bought some stick and spray from Crafters Companion as it's saved me a fortune on cutting mats.

Challenges:
Ready Teddy Go!

Apologies and a bit of stitching

Let me introduce you to Hamish - he's blossomed since we moved as he only ever used to have 3 scabby leaves and I thought you might like some flowers as I've been rubbish at commenting and posting and even proper Royal Mail type posting and a big wave to my new followers

I've also not posted my TUSAL for this month so here it is - check out the others on Daffycat - HERE:

Plus I've been doing loads of stitching so here is some for you to admire:

I would like to enter my card and keyring into the Delicious Doodles and the C.R.A.F.T challenge

Flowers & Pearls

There's a new challenge over at Fussy & Fancy Friday today and this one was a bit of a struggle for me as theme is FLOWERS and pearls. I don't own any of those posh flowers so out came my absolute favourite EK success flower punches so Bea had a carpet to stand on.

Please nip on over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the team have made this time and leave them some love

Card makin mamas
Raise the Bar
Stampin for the weekend
