We are putting a cardmaking kit on the website today - hopefully everyone hasn't been super organised and already made their christmas cards (i have not single one made yet haha whereas Tara is away home to become a cardmaking machine this weekend - I'm too knee-deep in bottles and nappies for such luxury!)

Layout example from our December Kit

Tara put together this lovely layout using our december kit - the letters are cut out using the cuttlebug. THe photo was taken a couple of years ago when Diarmuid and I spent Christmas in Arizona with his brother and family - a very lovely time! The papers are mackintosh cardstock, Figgy Pudding Toyland paper, gold ribbon, the 7Gypsies 97% complete Happiness Tag and the circle clips from HOTP Cardmakers range.

sponsored cycle to paris

Having decided that my life isn't busy enough with a small baby and toddler, i have decided to sign up for Christian Aid's sponsored cycle from London to Paris next summer..... good inspiration for getting fit after two bambinos at least! I will have to raise about 1100 pounds for charity so watch out for me packing bags at your local supermarket!! Time to go, am watching the girl from the Apprentice get munched by cockroaches on 'I'm a Celebrity....'

We got a delivery today from one of our suppliers of new dovecraft jewel brads, pound stickers and lovelh making memories blossoms and label holders... all very delicious! I used some of the jewels myself tonight at our crop at my mums house. One of our regular croppers is off to have her baby on Monday by c-section so i think next week we will all be making new baby cards instead of our scrapbook layouts......

Christmas cards using Basic Greys Figgy Pudding papers

Today Tara spent all morning creating some lovely new cards for a craft fair we are going to on Saturday. I on the other hand, spent all morning at Tots and Co with the two munchkins... now they are both asleep I can get some blogging done.... in between looking for somewhere to stay on our holiday in February....

I created this layout last night using my Nana's Kids stack - I got the idea for the layout from one of my Bo Bunny catalogues.... this is Sarah with her eldest cousin, Caitlin - all dressed up for their cousins' christening back in August.
