Figgy Pudding....

I am loving the new Basic Grey Figgy Pudding range, but then Basic Grey can do no wrong in my eyes. I have to try and keep up with my forum girls so when I saw that they had created new cards for the new DCM challenge I had a perfect excuse to get out the Figgy Pud! The challenge was called "Wrap it in Ribbon for Christmas"

Large A5 size, Figgy Paper, Chippie Tree covered in the reverse of the Figgy paper, Joy Bauble and flourish cut on Silhouette.

A sketch challenge from DCM - here is the sketch:

... and here is my interpretation:

Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers and Holiday Stickers (Reindeer).

Daring Cardmakers

A couple of my forum girls are always making cards for the Daring Cardmakers Challenges. I thought I would join in this time. The challenge was "Circle of Friends", with at least one circle. I made this card as I wanted to send something like it to a friend who I have lost touch with. I do miss seeing her and our chats on the phone, it's too easy to get caught up in family life and lose touch with people you once cared for.


Making room for a piano... not easy task! But it is one that somehow has presented itself to me! Although not exactly a grand piano it is a sizable beast and it's proving a difficult task.

The girls have started piano lesson and need to be able to practise of course. So I have ordered them a digital piano (half price so quite a bargain). I ordered in haste and have spent much time measuring various gaps to find a home (should have measured first then ordered to suit!). The past two hours have been spent moving things around and I think we finally have a home for it. Now of course I am sooo looking forward to the arguments about whose turn it is to practise. I wonder if my local hypermarket sell ear plugs!

Had time to make a card though. I love the DCWV Once papers and used a couple here. Round shape and flourish cut on my Silhouette. Basic Grey Urban Couture ribbon.
