Recycle, Reuse .....

This card has been made with the card trick that was inside one of our Christmas crackers - I couldn't work out the trick, but least I can reuse the cards!

Christmas wasn't quite as organised as usual as I went down with the flu 2 days before and spent most of the time asleep on the sofa, but we did enjoy a family get together on the day and also round my sons on Boxing day. Rather than enjoying wine, Port or Gin, I spent the time sipping honey and barley water!

I did get some lovely crafting goodies, including these cute little kraft envelopes which I have teamed up with some inquisitive kitties.

Best wishes for 2018 to you all.

Last Reindeers of 2017 ..... Promise!

Reindeers and stags have featured rather heavily in my 2017 Christmas cards - so these will be the last posted this year, but I couldn't resist showing off the lovely bauble die that came from it only cost £2.55 and the fir tree die was £1.35 - real bargains and well worth the wait for delivery from China! 

I cut them out using black card and layered them against sparkly white glitter card - really pleased with the effect.

Let It Snow!

Like the rest of the country we have snow today! First of the year for us, as we live in Sunny Suffolk and have a milder climate than most areas.
No only is this a photo of my snowy back garden, but it is also my first picture of my lovely new wooden fence which was only finished on Friday! They also trimmed the beech tree at the end of the garden and took away the old shed that was on the left hand side of garden
I wish I had taken a 'before' photo to show how tumbled down and rotten the fence and shed were - at least I have a nice and secure garden now!
