A Christmas Box...

I haven't posted anything for a long time but I must say that I am a bit fed up with paper crafting... I will still visit the blogs of my lovely followers and make cards from time to time but right now I am enjoying one of my first loves : crochet ! I can't do it for a very long time because of my hands which get easily stiff but it's so nice to do something else !

Anyway today I would like to share with you a Christmas box I made for my dear daughter Anne... She liked it a lot... (it was full of chocolates...)



The images and sentiment are from Pink Petticoat.

My box will enter the challenges :
- "Anything Goes with Option Bags, Boxes, Tags and More" with 613 Avenue Create,
- "Holidays" with Get Creative,
- "Season's Greetings" with That's Crafty
and "Anything Christmas" with Scrap-Craft Inspiration.

Thank you for visiting and happy crafting !

A Little Notebook...

I was making Christmas cards during the summer and now I feel like making things with a summery theme ! While Max was on a fishing trip I made him a little notebook - he always uses one when he does his Sudoku, don't ask why... 




The papers and the image are from Pink Petticoat. Hurry up if you want a bargain, the shop will soon be closed... All the dies I used are from Lawn Fawn.

My notebook will enter the challenge "Anything Goes" with 4 Craft Chicks, the challenge "Dies and/or Punches" with Sweet Stampin and the challenge "Anything Goes" with Jo's Scrap Shack.

Tis the Season...

Here is the last Christmas card I've made. I used to like dark tones but I have found that working with pastel colours is quite relaxing and more pleasing to the eye...


The papers, image and sentiment are from Pink Petticoat. By the way, you might be interested to know that Pink Petticoat is closing down (Sniff...) but the good news is that the papers, images and sentiments are all £ 1 now ! Needless to say that I have filled my boots !

My card will enter the challenge "U is for unusual Christmas colours" with ABC Christmas.

Halloween Tea Light Holders...

I have found another use for my milk box cartons : I have turned them into LED tea light holders... I made two for Halloween. I didn't have any ghost stamp so I found the ghost shape on the net, erased the eyes and the mouth - didn't like them - and punched two little eyes instead...


My boxes will enter the challenges :
- "Halloween or Harvest" with Melon Headz Friends,
- "Halloween" with Moving Along with the Time
and "Halloween/Autumn" with Noor Design UK.

Thank you for visiting and happy crafting !

For You...

Today my card is a bit of a trip down memory lane for me... When I learned typewriting it was on an old typewriter like the one on my card... Gosh you needed strong fingers and you couldn't have long nails ! The border is supposed to look like the ink ribbon... It was such a mess when you had to change it ! Happy days !!! lol
