Its my birthday today and can't believe I've decided to have a crafting morning.  Seren is with her daddy so making the most of my free time.  I'm off out with my friend after dinner to choose my birthday present so really looking forward to that:-)

I have made my next card for the Blog Hop challenge over on Christmas Challenges (with sketches) which ends on 29th December so had to get this in quick lol!

I have used my Norma Fickel gnome with tree image available from Whiff of Joy, coloured in with promarkers and added gold sakura glitter pen to the star.

All the dp used is a selection from Let It Snow Premium Paper Pad from Dovecraft.  I used my Martha Stewart snowflake edge punch, added Always Artichoke ribbon from Stampin Up, sentiment from craftworkcards pieced onto an oval punched out with my SU punch and square green gems from my stash.  The fancy circle was punched out with my Fiskars circle punch.

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.  I had a very different Christmas this year as after Seren had opened her presents at my house she was then collected by her daddy to spend Christmas with him and I visited my parents for dinner on my own.  It wasn't that quiet though as my 2 nephews and niece were also there lol!  

Tomorrow (27th) it is my birthday and I will spending it with my special friend who will be taking me shopping to buy something for my birthday as well as taking me out for a meal.  Thinking about that is already cheering me up from being on my own as I won't see her until Thursday.  I have her then all day Friday then half of Saturday as this year its her daddy's turn to have her New Years Eve.

Its Seren's 7th birthday on Sunday (New Years Day) and I am taking her out for her birthday tea. This is Seren on Christmas day with McGregor the Westie and the doll she's been driving me nuts for.

 I have made her card following the lovely sketch over on Friday Sketch Challenge.

I have used my new Lily of the Valley stamp called Summer 'Lovely Lilies', coloured her in with promarkers and sakura pink glitter pen then cut out with my oval nestie.  It has been pieced onto an oval scallop cut out from Regal Rose cardstock from Stampin Up.  The dp used is a selection from Best Creation Inc Once Upon A Time glitter papers.  Ribbon is Regal Rose from SU, flowers, brads and pink gems all from my stash and the sentiment was generated on my laptop.

I've still got Christmas shopping to do but mainly only got to get more presents for Seren.  Its also her birthday on New Year's Day so have to decide what she has for Christmas and what she has for her Birthday.

Anyway back to my latest creation which is yet another Me To You creation.  I have used one of the lovely clear stamps from my Winter Wonderland set,  coloured in with promarkers and added Ice Crystal Stickles for detail.  

The dp used is a selection from the Me To You Winter Wonderland paper pack as is the ribbon which the bow has been tied using my bow easy.  Cardstock used is Pixie Pink from Stampin Up.  The sentiment is craftworkcards mounted onto an oval punched out with my SU oval punch and the pink dots are from my stash.

I have followed the lovely sketch over on sketchsaturday.

I can't believe this is our last challenge for 2011 over on Magical Monday Challenge.  We have a theme of Pink and Silver which is one of my favourite colour combinations.  I have also followed the lovely sketch over on christmaschallenges (with sketches).

For my creation I have used one of my stamps from Papilio called Fairy Snow which has been coloured in with promarkers and Stickles for detail.  The silver cardstock is from my stash as is the silver ribbon.  The pink dp is a selection from DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas and the sentiment is from craftworkcards mounted onto an oval punched out with my Stampin Up oval punch.

I do hope you will enter our last challenge of 2011 and take some time to visit the rest of the DT.

Gosh it has gone cold, I hate the icy/frosty mornings as have to walk Seren to school and I'm scared of falling over as if I do I know I will end up being off work with my back!!  This week is the start of Christmas pressure at Royal Mail but luckily I'm still only working part-time.

I thought I'd made enough cards to send out but as usual there is the odd one or two names I have missed so here is another one I have made using the lovely sketch over on Sketch Saturday.

I have used my winning stamp from Christmas Challenges (with Sketches) which I think is adorable and coloured her in with promarkers and Sakura glitter pen for details.  The dp I have used is a selection from craftworkcards called Jack Frost.  The cardstock is Baja Breeze from Stampin Up.  I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch for the fancy edging and a MS snowflake punch for the snowflakes.  Ribbon is from my stash and bow tied with my bow-easy and the silver adhesive gems also from stash.  Sentiment also from craftworkcards mounted onto an oval punched out with my SU oval punch.
