Blogmas Day 24

Hello everyone!

It’s Christmas Eve! … How did that fly in so fast, I just want to wish you all a very merry christmas and good health and best wishes for the new year.

I am so glad that I managed to keep up with Blogmas, it was quite the challenge, but I did enjoy it lots.

My final project is a curvy keepsake box and the die for this is from Stampin Up and the tag from Tim Holtz

I love the cardstock that I used it is by American Crafts .. I got it from TK Maxx last year and forgot I had it!

The box below and tag waiting to be put together once it is filled with chocolates

I made these to give out as gifts with presents, I filled each one with Galaxy Chocolate sweeties 🙂

Here is the finished box complete with tag and chocolates 🙂

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all well .. can you believe December is here already!

I have a few Christmas sparkles to share with you today, and to say that I won’t be around on my blog much between now and the new year, I have a lot of stuff happening.

My husband broke his leg in two places the other week, and will be off his work for the next 6 weeks, which means, my workload has increased… Hospital appointment with the consultant to see if they are going to operate/pin/plate the bones to stabilize tomorrow.

I was at the dentist on Monday… I’m on antibiotics for a week as I have an infection in my jaw from a broken crown (just my luck!) and I go to the dentist on Monday to have the root removed (not looking forward to it one bit!)

I will be busy between now and the end of December preparing samples for Indigoblu for their CHA releases, which unfortunately I can’t share.    However there will be a blog post from me every Tuesday over on the Indigoblu Blog and another card share on the challenge blog around the 19th December.

My Indigoblu Demonstrations have now finished for the year and I have one final workshop to do this Saturday over in Edinburgh for Stampers Grove,  there are still a few spaces left if you fancy joining me making Christmas shaker cards, money wallets, gift card holders and Christmas tags!

Phew!.. and did I mention in amongst all the December mayhem, I still have to make my own  Christmas cards for friends and family and do all of my Christmas gift shopping  eek!

Now onto my sparklies…
