One more Sleep ....

Well its Christmas Eve, the decorations are up and the presents bought , My 'grown-up' Son ( and I use the term very loosely!!) has settled back into his old room ( my beloved craft-room that was...) and bringing home germs by the dozen, from all his little charges at Purley Infant School in Surrey. We are beginning to think the only reason he went into teaching 5 year old's was so he could still play with Lego all day!!!

Oh well, one more sleep then Santa comes , hopefully he might bring me some new fences to replace the ones lost in last nights storm though not sure how he would get them down the chimney!!

 Here's a couple of cards I made playing with my new Tonic die sets Square base Affections and Tres Belle square base , hope you like them xx

The top right was made using the Tonic die from the Square base Tres Belle set, it comes with a tag shape in the centre but on this occasion I have covered it up and used the diecut as a background only, with some fab hunkydory butterflies and a clock face. I have been saving these for a while to make more special cards with and these dies seem to do the toppers the justice they deserve x

The one below was made with the fantastic Tonic Square base Affections Die set , using the hunkydory butterflies and clocks again this makes a classy and feminine birthday card

My last card below is a last minute Christmas Card made using the fantastic Tonic Square base Affections Die set again as a backround with the Tradional Christmas Crafting kit from Crafters Companion and hunkydory using the lovely robins and a christmas sentiment from the pack.

Time now to thank all my followers, teammates on DTs here and over the pond that I have had the pleasure to work with over the last year and last but in no way least the wonderful Girls and boys at Crafters Companion for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to work with them , Seeing my cards and Creations on live TV for the first time was such a fantastic feeling and the last 12 months have been such a wild ride  so for all my teamies this year LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!!! (Fingers and toes crossed they will let me  stay for another year.... )
