FFP Challenge #42

I have used the sketch and made a xmas card using a doodle from the doodlementals set, a xmas paper from Pink Petticoat, an image from the freebie blue set although I did emboss the tree, and a christmas round embossed as well and used ribbon from my stash.

a bit under the weather today

I have a head cold, so I am feeling qiute poorly. Haven't got dressed either. Have got some Pixie costumes to make for the school christmas fayre - skirts and waistcoats- but don't have the energy to do anything. Have dosed myself up with Lemsips, and I am just doing nothing today.

Yesterday(Friday) I went to the NEC along with my friend Jan. I drove using her car as she has RA. It took us just on 2 hours to get there and we had a really smooth journey to Birmingham. The show hadn't even opened when we got there! The doors eventually opened and we went in I had places I wanted to go and so did Jan so we split up and said we would meet at 11. I bought an embroidery kit I wanted and and a number of other things I had listed. Then stopped at Joanna Sheen and watched one of her girls demoing. Whilst there she said she would put our names in a hat and draw out one to win one of her cards and guess what my name came out. I now have a very lovely card.
Anyway the day went on with Jan and I meeting up and then going to do more shopping in the Crafts for Christmas hall Jan could have bought everything but she was very good and resisted.
I did a lot of the carry for Jan as she was beginning to wane so by 3pm we decided to go. This is where the problem was we got onto the M42 and needed to get to the M6 but there was no signs for the M6 but there was a sign for London which meant going on the M40 so we did!!! we ended up taking 3 hours to get home instead of about 2 what wallies we were but anyway we had a good day. I crossed 6 counties with the journey home.

Here is my entry for Challenge 41. I have used 2 papers from the freebie xmas blue set, edged the round bits with navy ric-rac braid, used the same braid across the middle, used a christmas 'round' from'Let's get Traditional', a silver poinsettia flower from a xmas decoration with a blue pull ribbon bow, 3 die-cut buttons.
Just didn't have time to do last weeks challenge.

Funky Fairys Challenge Blog: Challenge #39

Here is my entry for Challenge #39. I have used Funky Fairy pink circle for the background and keeping in with the circular theme used the circle paper from the Pink Xmas set, adding a lace border to the paper across the bottom is lilac grograin ribbon again with cirles on and a greeting with Happy birthday peel-off. The small flowers are attached to a circle punchie with brads and the middle circle has the same lace border around the edge with a larger silk flower attached in the middle.
As it is my daughter's birthday on the 3rd I thought this would be an appropriate card to give to her.
