Mistletoe and wine (No wine as 1 glass gets me very drunk)

Good evening everyone out there hows Christmas coming along, has anyone noticed all of the last card titles have had a theme running through them ,the next few cards I'm struggling with as I have with this one!! I've just finished the whole Christmas shopping bit and what a nice feeling it is.Been into town it was very quiet for this time of the year, nearly freaked myself out driving in the snow .While we were there we went to the cinema to see Nativity, this film is going to go down as an all time favorite for me and the two 11 year olds I took. It was just Brilliant if you need to get in a festive mood this is the way to go.

Anyway here's my card all three stamps are off the same set inkadinkado fat birds.I don't think that's its proper name but that's what Janice calls it!

White Christmas ?

Good Evening Guys, I just thought I would share my snow with you, this is last Friday Morning and my son looking very pleased with him self in the back garden, as school had been cancelled, I took this in my dressing gown and wellies good job we haven't got neighbours!!

this is also a view out into
the fields behind me.

This is just to the side of our place,looking out on Hubby's favourite place the shed!

And just down our lane. Its all right living off the beaten track but you do get snowed in ,and I'm not good at being in one place for a long time. There you go that's just a bit of me.
lots of love Chris xx

Oh Christmas Tree

I hope you are noticing a theme running through with my titles ,yes my 3rd post of the day.
This lovely Christmas tree is off the cricut cartridge joys of the season, I think it is my favourite Christmas cartridge, whereas storybook is the best ever cartridge in my opinion, just because it has all the scalloped shapes and fantastic alphabet plus heaps more. I nearly always use it somewhere when preparing classes. still can't go anywhere roads are lethal, hence lots of postings see you later love chris xx

when the red red robbin goes.........

yes I know its my 2nd one of the day(how about that Brenda, cheated though) but I just found the photograph of it .Its using my good old inchies !!anyone who knows me knows I love my inchies!!might post another one later.

While Shepherds Watch

And yes another Christmas card are you fed up with them yet? I really can't wait to do some thing bright and springy possibly yellow and green, I have a few to show you yet though that are christmassy ,this is a Sarah Kaye stamp which I love and the papers are from a pad called snowy Jo by imaginisce have a nice day .
love Chris xx

I'm loving Angels!!

Don't you just love this angel stamp from inkadinkado, well it is one of my all time favourites and good for a quick card, I am also a big lover of the zutter I always think it turns a card into a very small gift.
Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to go out and post my last few things, I was going last Friday but the snow stopped all that, I feel trapped I need rain !!! i really shouldn't say that should I.

Birds and Branches

Hi guys, have you woken up to more snow this morning, well we have here which is such a nuisance this morning as I was going to a card class this afternoon, and then after the hero arts launch at Sir Stampalot, so lets hope the road clears. as much as I love to see the snow I don't like it when it gets in the way of those special days that you have planned.
Here's a card I prepared earlier using yes those good old Hero arts stamps which I LOVE,
can't wait to work on some new ones .
Have a nice day love chrisxx

Shrunk Stockings

Here's one I did a while back from a sketch that I saw on a blog somewhere, can't remember where. I have to say it is one of my favorite sketches ever. I thought I would show you as I think the background paper is like swirling snow, and very fitting for today as we have got at least 4''of the stuff. Not very good for taking photos as it seems very dull , yet I have tried.
bye girls have a happy day love chrisxx
Its just starting to snow again .

another snowfllake

Well that's the 2nd Christmas craft party I've been to cold stone sober, but hilarious(had to drive) I dressed up as Santa to everyones suprise and yes did all the ho ho ho 's and yet I received goodies. (thanks girls)
here's my card using my new years resolution and that is to use the negative of my die cuts and cricut shapes which is what I have used here. so often they get discarded ,Good word for card makers dont you think. fat birdies are penny black as is sentiment.
back soon love chris xx

So its here the first day of winter, I thought this was quite fitting after the cold start to the day,
I just love these hero arts stamps, and of course good old Bazzil papers, I think the winter words are good and swirly ,and yes its red and green again but with a bit of brown.
lots of love chris xx
