Oh my goodness I made a Christmas Card and it's only September

Hello there, it's been a while since I blogged but I just had to share the Christmas card I've made this week. 
I'm never this organised, honestly, I'm usually in the craft room the week before Christmas with glitter, die cuts and a huge mess around me. I promised myself last year that I'd start earlier. 
When I saw the cute new dress up images from Jellypark I wanted to start colouring them up straight away. It was so much fun. Here is the first one.

 I'm almost finished another one which I'll blog about as soon as I get photo's. There are 5 images altogether and they are all equally as cute as each other.

Happy Crafting :o)

Post Pals UK Card 2

Hello, happy Friday :o)

I'm back to show my next Post Pals card, this one is going to an older child hence the theme of the card. 
This image isn't one of the ones Claire is giving away over on facebook, but it is so appropriate for the Post Pal that I just had to colour it up and use it anyway.

I also added a couple of mementos into the envelope from his favourite football team.
I hope he likes it. 
I'm so happy that Claire introduced me to this wonderful organisation, I am thoroughly enjoying making the cards and gifts for the kids and hopefully getting some happy mail will brighten their day.

Happy Crafting

Post Pals UK

Just a quick blog post to tell you all about Post Pals UK.  On facebook there is a new group set up by Claire Keay of Jellypark. Claire had the wonderful idea to team up with Post Pals by generously giving away a set of 6 images to everyone who participates in sending cards and gifts to the children on the Post Pals site.

Simply ask to join the Group and once approved, let Claire know you would like the first image. Once you show a picture of your first make and tell us which child you are sending it to, you will receive the 2nd image and so on. 

My first card went to a right little cutie called Tie D and here it is. Inside the card there are even more cheesy monkey jokes :o)

As you can see I also made a little door hanger for him. Hope he liked them and that they brought a smile to his face.

I said it would be a quick post as I'm in the middle of making a card for another Post Pal child. I'll post up pictures once it's done.

Happy Crafting

Challenge time over at Jellypark Friends and a couple of sweet new releases

Hola, happy Friday, it's half term yipeeeeeeee, I love it when my kids are off, I don't get much done and the craft room door tends to be shut quite tight but we have fun.

Over at the brand spanking new Jellypark Store we have a couple of lovely new releases. We also have a new challenge over at the Challenge Blog and the theme is Chocolate and/or cake.

I made this cute Mother's Day card with one of the new release images.
I've had those sweety embellishments for ages so it was lovely to be able to use them on my card. I coloured the image up with my promarkers. The roses are made using a dienamics die. I created the sentiment to match the dp.

I hope you will pop on over to see what Design Team B have created for this challenge, you won't be disappointed.

Have a great weekend folks.

My second Jellypark post of the day I'm on a roll :o)

Hello again, I've been a busy bee in the craft room lately. 
When I saw this fabulous new release image from the Jellypark Store I couldn't wait to make a card with her.

The theme over at the challenge blog is buttons and bows, I've splashed out on this card and it has both lol. The beautiful image has been coloured with my trusty promarkers and I hand stitched some lines onto the background before sticking her on. The lace has also been hand stitched in place along with the button. I added a sweet little tag and some felt flowers. I really enjoyed making this card. The Jellypark Design Team have also been busy so pop on over to the blog for some inspiration.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Happy crafting
