Not Many Bargains at The Range

I was a bit disappointed with my visit to the Range - it seemed there was mainly Christmas stock in the sale and not much else.

I only bought some full price card blanks and this pretty decoupage pad - and it was only reduced by £2!
I did have a fun afternoon crafting though,  and made these cards for 2016

Hope You all had a Great Christmas!

Hubby, Daughter, Me, Mum, Son and Sons GF
We had a lovely meal at a local pub - no arguing over the sprouts, no getting up early to put the turkey in the oven and best of all  - no washing up! Well worth every penny. Staff were super too, so we left a good tip for those who put their Christmas day on hold to help  make ours so good.

Really enjoyed the Xmas Doctor Who episode and for once wasn't left confused about what was going on - River Song rocks!

Off to check out the sale at The Range to see if there are any crafty bargains.  May 2016 be a great year for you all - Dawn

Christmas ATC's and Advent

I've placed all the Christmas ATC's that I've received this year on the door around my advent calendar, so that I can admire them every time I pass into the lounge. There are some lovely robins, stockings and snowmen, plus a cross stitched initial with a gingerbread man!

Wren with Blackberries

This card was made with a very old stamp of a wren which has been lurking at the back of the basket for a long time - its made by Jayne Netley Mayhew

It's layered against some lovely soft pink roses background papers with a hot pink ribbon. I enjoyed making something that didn't involve glitter, snowmen or reindeer!

Purple Angel Christmas Card

 Probably one of my last Christmas cards for this year - for my Aunt who loves the colour purple!
I'm not sure how many cards I have made for Christmas this year - but it must be more than 200, as I make for a couple of local charities as well as my large family. However, I still have lots of Xmas stash left over, as well as several stamps that I didn't get round to using!!
