Bah Humbug -Santa

Just finished my card for the Bah humbug challenge. It's been a bit of a challenge today to get it done. I had to just grab the first things I could get my hands on, 5 mins before going to work. I took them to work not having any idea on what I was going to do. My ornament was a stamp i borrowed and stamped  years ago. I had grabbed a  pot of glitter so I used my glue pen  in my break and glittered the red part. Cut my craft card and and backing papers and stuck them down at dinner time. Cut my ornament out and stuck my Vellum Santa behind it.  My friend came down to visit tonight so have thrown the rest of the glitter on it and added two gems and a bow in the last quarter of an hour.  Sorry but my photo is a bit dodgy as its gone funny when the lights hit my glitter. Hope I get more time to do next weeks.
 Sorry I have not got round to visit any blog in a while. It's a bit hard when sharing my room with a son who only starts work at 10 pm in an evening. Thanks for dropping by I realy apprecite your comments. Happy crafting. Hugs x ChrisB

Glitter and glitz Paris

Hi hope everyone had a lovely Easter. I had a busy time , my Hubby and I went out on Saturday with my Son and grandaughter to Cleveleys. We had a lovely time ,but it was very cold and windy on the front. We had a potter around the shops for an hour while Maddi and her Dad played on the beach. I t was the first time that she had been in the sea. Even though it was quite cool she had run about with no clothes on splashing about and had a great time. He had made a little video of her giggling away in the water.

Sunday we had an Easter egg hunt at 7am as she knew Easter Bunny had been. Monday I had some time to myself and did some crafting. I managed to do some more of my Wedding Book. I will be able to show you soon. I also managed to use my Glitter and Glitz Paris cd and make a card for a very dear friend of mine. The card is actually longer than a A3 card, so had to join the box together. My card wasn't as strong as I would have liked But it's done now. I just hope she likes it. I am going to add some ribbon around  both sides of the middle section before  I give it to my friend for her birthday.
Thanks for stopping by. I always appreciate all your lovely comments. Happy crafting Hugs x ChrisB

Bah humbug - stockings

I have managed to get my card for the Bah humbug challenge. This week it's Christmas stockings, I  have made the card over the last two days in my dinner time at work. I stamped my image and coloured it with promarkers then added a touch of glitter.  Stuck on my backing paper ,I think it was free with a magazine.Used a Martha stewart punch for the border and cut a ribbon of backing paper. Stamped one of my Lili of the valley sentiment stamps and edged it with promarker. I hope you are all enjoying this great weather and having a good week.
Thanks for taking the time to visit. Hugs x ChrisB

Hi everyone.

Hi everyone, hope your week is going well, can't believe it's nearly weekend again. I haven't anything to show you today, but I am crafting away. I'm working on a Wedding Book. I've been asked to make two over the top Wedding cards for the same couple's wedding. I decided to make a wedding book for the first one as it's off the Mother of the bride. I just hope she will be pleased with it. I'm making  8 pages and have finished 2 at the moment. I'm working from an idea that was in last months Craft stamper magazine. which was a Nature book. I will try to take a picture tomorrow to show you.
I'm struggling at the moment as my Son as moved back home. I moved into his bedroom 4 years ago and made it into my craft room, with built in units. I am now sharing the space. So every time I try to craft I have to work in a metre space and tidy everything up afterwards. Plus every weekend I have my Little grandaughter over to stay so can't craft then so she doesn't hear me and goes to sleep.
Thanks for visiting. Will  hopefully see you tomorrow. Hugs x ChrisB

Bah humbug - humourous

Wow this as been a hard one this week. Looked through all my stamps and nothing. I had given up when I spotted a paper chain I had bought my Granddaughter at Christmas. It made me smile, especially the snowcat and the snoozing snowman. I added a smiley jolly snowman and that was it.
Thanks for visiting. Hope it made you smile. Hugs x ChrisB
