Happy Christmas Everyone!!

Hi Everyone!
Hope we are all getting close to being ready for the Big Day!! 
Just like lots of other nurses in the world I will be working Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year, I think there's something special about being in a hospital on Christmas Day though. If you can brighten up just one person's day then it's worth it!

As I will be working I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a fantastic Christmas, and hope that you all have a wonderful time with your loved ones.
Also, thank you so much for all of your support throughout the year on my blog and in my personal life too, I graduated, started a new job and started renovating a house and without your support these things would not have been easy so thank you!!

As I have reached 100 followers, I will be posting some candy in the New Year so keep an eye out for that.

So on to the card...

I made this one for the man in the my life! A bit girly but I thought it was a lovely image.

I decoupaged the Forever Friends Image and added stickles. The papers are original Forever Friends papers. Of course I had to use up the last of my pom pom trim on this card too, something I have been using a lot on my Christmas cards this year. I handmade the sentiment and punched a couple of snowflakes too. 

Once again, have a lovely Christmas all of you. I will catch up with you very soon!

Aww bunnies!

Hi everyone,

I have since updated this card with a better photo! My Mum actually took the photo at the top on her mantelpiece, it was a lot lighter than my first one! Maybe I should send my cards over to Norfolk to be photographed prior to blogging haha.

I have been using up my Lili Of The Valley Cute Squares a lot recently, they are just so handy for quick cards!
I also had a trip to hobbycraft on my Birthday with my Mum and treated myself to a holly border and snowflake punch which appear on this card! 

Papers are a mix of Pink Petticoat (as per usual) and Forever Friends. 

Hope you are all ready for the festive season!

Thanks for looking

Purple Christmas!

Hi All,
How are you? Hope you've had a good week. I've got 4 days off now, have a long weekend off for my Birthday on Monday. My Mum is coming down as my Dad is on a course, it'll be the first year I haven't seen him on my Birthday so I'm a bit sad about that. 

I have made this card for my Nanna for Christmas, I have never used purple before on a Christmas card, I'm too much of a traditional girl to be honest - however, I really like how this has turned out!!

I used a LOTV cute square and some papers from Pink Petticoat and DCWV.

This is also the first time I have used flowers on my card but again I really like how this has turned out.

Please excuse the lighting in the photo, as I'm sure most of you are aware the weather is a bit pants at the moment!

I would like to enter my card in to the following challenges:

Forever Friends Christmas Challenge

Hi all!

How are you?

Sorry for the lack of posting recently, I have been very busy working my long days so just don't have the time or energy to create cards when I get in.

I am very lucky that I have got a few days off now so shall be creating until my hearts content! I always find that the days I am working I get so much mojo and inspiration to make cards, it's probably because I know I can't!

I made a card last night for my first ever DT posts challenge, Christmas Cards over at 

I used a Forever Friends image
Backing papers from a freebie stack I got with a magazine (no name unfortunately)
I created the text myself (which I wasn't entirely happy with the font after it had printed)
Gems, ribbon and stickles to finish.

If you would like to join in with our Forever Friends Monthly Challenge and have some Christmas Cards you would like to share with us, click here.

Thanks for looking!
