Having a Play!!!!

Hope you are well and happy.
Still don't have my laptop fixed... I feel so lost without it!!!! Anyway, I thought I would take the opportunity with the house being empty to show you what I have been playing with lately...

I am trying to make some Christmas cards... We seem to send out loads these days, so I am leaving my 'special family' cards for a while and just concentrating on making all the others. I really want to get them done a bit earlier this year!!!!

I have been playing with my Cuttlebug and dies... I love the snowflakes and christmas tree's... and I have been digging out old patterned paper that I get out each year and don't use!!! The trees are in some lovely Doodlebug paper that I have had forever... I did one scrapbook page with some and just left the rest... I think it works nicely on these cards...

These I did with some mulberry paper that I found in the same box... it was one of those impulse buys that I thought looked pretty but never actually had a use for!!!

And these were jusing some bits and bobs too.... I seem to have a whole pile of stuff that I have no idea where they came from at all!!!!

I also crocheted my daughter a headband, I knitted her a blue one too, but I couldn't find that one to take a picture!!! There seem to be alot around the shops at the moment... trouble is she wants one in every colour!!!! Luckily they don't take long to make!

I also crocheted her this little bag... she is forever taking books and magazines to read in the car, so I crocheted her this to carry them in and out of the house, instead of us finding a whole pile on the back seat!!!

And lastly, I had a play at a making an ornament picture with buttons... found it on a challenge site that I have forgotten about at the beginning of the summer holidays... it was fun to do, just need to stitch some ribbon on it so that I can hang it up when Christmas gets nearer!

Hope you are finding time to play too.

Take care
