The Sweetest Thing....

Hello :)))

Firstly a big wave and a hello to all my "new" followers...so great to have you here and I look forward in the next couple of days finding and visiting you!

Okay its been a while since I have posted something up...to be honest and I know I have said this before but I just seem to get busier and busier as the year goes one.  I am hoping (fingers crossed) next year with them both at School and Kindy, that I will have more time to get crafty...I have a list a mile long of things that I want to do and try so here's hoping!

Well its getting so close to Christmas now, that I decided last month to make a couple of Christmas cards.  Now I am no card maker, in fact I find them quite difficult...I fuss and fiddle and no matter how I think about "its just a smaller version of a layout" I never can get them to work.  Anyway, so cards aren't my forte but I had a go.

These cards are made using some gorgeous Manor House flowers.

And next up is my latest step x step project for Manor House.  If you want to see more details on how I created this layout...go HERE.

Sigh...these flowers are so beautiful and I love how they can be easily altered to suit.

Lots and lots of paint, texture and Shimmerz on this layout.

Also, if you LOVE blog hops and love a chance to win some awesome prizes...Manor House and Imaginarium Designs have teamed up this month...Flowers and chipboard...what a gorgeous combination!

Check out all the details HERE.
My layout will be up very soon!

Thanks so much for visiting!
