O Christmas Tree

Hope all is well with everyone in blogland. Time for me seems to be flying past far too quickly and I am so disorganised and so unprepared for Christmas this year. This christmas number was created for this weeks ICS challenge. Our sponsors are DZ Doodles and the image I used is one of their digi images which I just fell in love with for its simplicity.

I used:
Digi image - DZ Doodles
Kelly Panacci - Faux Stitches

Christmas !!!

I am so unprepared for Christmas this year. Unfortunately everything seems to be snowballing this week, where to begin. I am working full time until Christmas so have very little time to craft due to commitments at home taking priority.To top that Nicks dads has been put into rest bite for a week but we still seem to be called upon from his mother (when will it end!!). This week (today) would have been our little girl Ashleigh's 3rd birthday so emotions are all over the place as well. So please except my apologies if I don't get the opportunity to look and leave comments on your blogs for a while...

Now onto this weeks challenge at ICS we have a sketch to follow this week. Please come and join us.

I have used: Stampin up - Winter Post Stamp
Sizzix dies - tag, lilly of the valley leaf & holly
Scrap papers & recycled ribbon

Many thanks for taking the time to look.

For Something Different...

Well another week has passed by and this week at ICS we have been asked to make a box using one of the templates from our sponsor DZ Doodles. Something different for me as have never made one!!! I found this a bit of a challenge just trying to print out and assemble.... but got there in the end.

I have used lots of punches for this box they include: Martha Stewart - Doily Lace,
Stampin Up - Mini tag & bird & finally EK Success - Photo Corners.
Stampin Up - Sentiment stamp
Whiff of Joy - Swirl stamp

Not a bad attempt after it took so long to make and think of how to decorate.
