Happy Sunday.....

Can you beleive it's the last day of the Olympics!  I'm looking forward to the closing ceremony - Team GB have certainly done us all proud...........fantastic and well done to each and everyone of you.  Now we can have a little break before we welcome the Paralympic teams - Goooooooo Team GB!

Have you seen the new images from Crafters Comapion yet - The Morehead collections?  They are soooooo cute and just had to start on the Christmas collection as I'm in the mood lol, here's my makes so far, just a few simple quickies to get me going lol I hope you like them xxx

I've also been having a play with the new Kanban collection 'Christmas all Wrapped up' and here we have a couple of easel cards.

And so begins Christmas......

Good evening - how well are our Team GB doing, fair play to them all they are doing a marvellous job and should be very proud of themselves.
Now the crafting stuff.....I managed to get to our Craft Club on Friday evening and even took along some card crafting to do (much to the shock of the other girls who know me - they where expecting jewellery lol).  I thought it was time to get on with some Christmas cards given that I have bought soooooooo much Hunkydory and Kanban sets over the last few of weeks!  So here are the 4 cards I managed to complete on Friday, which has given me the 'urge' to get on and do more, I thoroughly enjoyed making these which came as the 'freebie' with the latest Hunkydory magazine...well apart from the twisted easel card which was from one of the kits.

An a5 simple card

Another A5 for the owl lovers

How to make an 8x8 card with just 1 piece of A4 base card - just crease one end at the DL size and don't trim, them just decorate to suit :o)

This is the inside of the 8x8 card above

I do hope you like these and that they inspire you to give it a go - Happy Crafting xx
