I've had lots of lovely post today, christmas presents I've ordered, finally my subscrition gift from my craft magazine 2 months late and most exciting of all my first design team goodies from Craft Fairies I can't wait to start playing!

I also had the first order from my new ebay shop today-so feeling very relieved-I was beginning to think I'd made a big mistake moving over

I've made a couple more presents, this tin is to hold a necklace (still to be made) for my mother-in-laws birthday pressie

and some jazzed up paperclips to go with the notebook I made yesterday

I've finally picked the floor ofr the kitchen-I don't think it would have been himselfs first choice (or his second, or third) but its red with glitter in it!!!!!! How could a girl not want that? As he rightly pointed out, I'm the one in the kitchen most, and I'm paying for it so I get to choose, hehehe

We are having the same floor in the downstairs loo too-along with tiles with a black and white photo of rubber ducks on them (photos to follow when he's finished)

I've finally used my Bind It All!! Not done anything exciting with it-just a little notebook to practice, its going to be part of a gift set for a friend for Christmas

My card for the DCM challenge this week-yes its another adoption day card for a little boy called Jack, the first got lost int he post on the way to the customer and I have no teddy stickers left so had to stamp one instead. Can you guess the name of the song it was based on?

I bought a couple of the new Cuttlekids dies yesterday-are they really meant for kids though? The penguin is sooo fiddly, you have to cut loads of bits out(but yes I have persevered and made a few (pictures later when I've been tp the gym)

I got the zebra too-not tried him yet, and some rather lovely Making memories black and white chipboard butttons too.

Off to the gym, back later with some more pictures (if there is daylight left!)

Out of my comfort zone

Got caught up on a couple of challenges today, both using colours I don't normally use
The DCM challenge this week was to use a touch of gold- I just don't like gold, but I've tried

These 2 were for a Children in Need challenge on I hate using yellow!!! It just doesn't work for me-but I actually quite like the red and yellow one

I've also finished my pages for Melissa's CJ-ahead of time for a change!
I'm clearing the decks because I have a day off work Monday-to stock my ebay shop. I'm giving up with the Mrsite website, I keep getting technical problems andf they can't seem to fix them so I'm hoping Ebay will be better-and hopefully have more coverage too

Life's got in the way lately so I've not had much chance to make cards. Its been nice to catch up a bit today though

These two were for an order, I have 25 adoption announcements to make next week for the customer too, I'm so pleased for her.

This is my DCM midweek challenge for the Pile of parcels challenge

I was stamping some images for a swap on Carolyn's and realised this one fitted the challenge perfectly!

We've booked our holiday today- a week in February on Fota Island in Cork Harbour, Southern Island. It looks gorgeous, I can't wait!!

Its a Pink Petticoat Day

I downloaded lots of lovely Pink Petticoats papers yesterday so most of my cards today feature it in some way hehehe
The DCM challenge for this week was Cut It-so I cut out some flowers from a left over bit of PP Christmas paper. This is my first ever acetate card- I have a mini album planned so I thought I'd practice on a card first-however they are not easy to photograph!

The leftovers were from this project...I found something to do with my clothes pegs-giant photo holders if you stand them upside down!

Its challenge weekend at Carolyn's, this was one of my first challenges -to make a gift.

I've also done the challenge to make a card with 2 or more folds-yup more pink petticoat paper and a couple of stickers from the sheet from Poundland

and finally a baby card using Sue's template challenge

Not alot of time for crafting tomorrow-my little Sis is coming up to stay over and we are off to see the fireworks tomorrow night
