Classic Christmas

Happy Wednesday all!

A fortnight has gone by, meaning it's time for a new Fab 'n Funky challenge. And what do you know: It's our monthly Christmas challenge! It's my first time playing along and I think it's a great idea. I haven't been working on my Christmas cards at all this year, only having 2 measly cards in my stash so far. So this challenge is going to be a great way for me to focus on Christmas cards a little bit more so that I don't have to worry about it so much come December. Maybe it works the same way for you :) I've used up some of decoupage image I have had in my stash for ages and simultaneously tried out a holly leaves die I got for Christmas and never got around to using it yet. Shame on me, as it's such a versatile die, perfect for Christmas cards! I'm going to try to make a wreath next, there's no stopping me now ;) The green dots under the image are actually the leftovers from the diecut, they seemed to good to waste.

A Birthday that's Out of this World!

Hi everyone!

Long time no see, huh? I just noticed I haven't posted for a good month, I can't believe it has been this long! I am back now though and you will see new projects on a more regular basis from now on, promise :) In the month I wasn't posting, we have been on a lovely long holiday to New York, two whole weeks in the Big Apple and it was absolutely wonderful! We had a great time, fantastic weather, had great food and saw plenty of the sights. But now it's back to normal and I have more time for crafty business again. Today I am sharing my first new project, it is a birthday card for my husband who turned 41 yesterday. Happy Birthday dearest! He is a major Star Trek fan, so when I saw this lovely image I knew this was perfect for his card this year.

I teamed up the image with some papers I have had in my stash just about forever, good to use up some old stash though. I bought some more stash in New York, so need to make some room ;)

It certainly feels good to be back, it was great to get crafting again. See you on Wednesday for a new challenge @ Fab 'n Funky!
