A very merry christmas...

i'd just like to wish everyone a very merry christmas! thank you all for making my first blogging months so brilliant, i've made some fab new blog-buddies =-)

also i'm reeeeeaaaally sorry that i haven't been round to visit everyone's blogs to say this personally, but i still haven't wrapped any presents...

i'm far too tired to be blogging...

...but i had a rather crafty moment when i got in from work!

first pic is of my card for this weeks Papertake Weekly yummy "food for thought" challenge - there's nothing yummier than cake in my opinion!

second is for DCM's inside & out challenge - i've used acetate & some lurvely double-sided pp - pic isn't fab, if anyone has any tips on photographing acetate please let me know!!!

everything i've used is from Scrummy Stash Cafe's gorgeous Salsa kit {except the acetate!}

a little bit of {ripped up} love...

this weeks Scrummy Stash challenge is to use something torn on your creation. i can't even describe how much just the thought of ripping up some of this yummy paper hurt, so i tore up a few bits of bazzill instead!!!!

lovely Dawn has tagged me - i have to reveal 7 random facts about myself.

1: my middle name is actually Dawn!
2:i have 3 older brothers {yes - being the only girl & the baby of the family means i get very spoilt!}
3: i have some serious food phobias - eggs, baked beans & bananas really make me freak out. how i've ended up working with food remains a complete mystery...
4: i'm really hoping father christmas brings me a new camera - all my pics are currently being taken with my phone after an unfortunate incident involving my camera & the dogs water bowl...
5: i'm VERY clumsy {note above fact!}
6: i make the best sticky toffee pudding EVER { this is not bragging by the way - this is an actual real true fact, ok????!!}
7: i'm a complete football fan {not just in a lots of fit blokes running round in shorts kinda way} - this is probably due to the previously mentioned brothers, no-one would've bothered to talk to me when i was little if i hadn't agreed to be their goalie...

i'm now meant to tag 7 more people - as always i'm gonna cheat, anyone reading who fancies dishing some dirt on themselves - you're tagged!

& a {handcut} partridge in a pear tree...

here's my card for this weeks Arty Girlz challenge, which is to include some hand cutting on your creation.

i've used Liz's new gorgeous freebie - i'd like to say a big, huge *thank you* to Liz not only for bringing back my christmas mojo with this fabby image { i'd given up completely...}, but also for all the wonderful freebies - thanks Liz!

*****please all note - i am NOT creeping up to her just because there is a rather lovely prize up for grabs on her blog...

everything else is from my Scrummy Stash kit - i did warn you that i'd be using it rather a lot!

this morning i actually told my postman i loved him...

...well he did bring me a very yummy box of goodies from the Scrummy Stash Cafe! {yes, i won another of their blog challenges - whoo-hoo!}
one of the things i ordered was the beautiful new Out & About kit & this fabby paper is perfect for DCM's new stripey challenge :) everything i've used is from this kit apart from the acetate {but even that came from Scrummy Stash!}

expect to see many more cards made with this kit - i loves it!

dreaming of a white christmas...

here's my attempt at this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge - it's as white as i could manage! {had to keep stopping myself from adding a bit more paint...}

still no mojo...

...but i was asked earlier to make a baby card. thought i'd try to tie it in with a challenge so that i've done at least one!
i found this oh-so-cute provo craft paper hidden away in a drawer & thought i'd have a little doodle, not entirely happy with this little fella, but he'll do! he was then watercoloured - perfect for the latest Scrummy Stash Cafe colour it in challenge!

a whole week's gone by...

...and i have no new cards to show you!
my crafty mojo seems to have disappeared completely - hopefully it's off on holiday somewhere hot & will be back soon refreshed & ready to play!
