A fleet of UFOs

I had a little time just before the big day, you know that time when you think it's all done so you settle down to play. I thought I'd tackle a couple of Christmas UFOs. So I whiled away an hour or two only to realise that I had a stack of presents still to wrap! Never mind it all got done in the end. Hope you all had a great time and sufficiently rested to tackle NEW YEAR!
The Birdie house was a previous post from our Glue and Stick group, the shadow box was a CI workshop and the Christmas tree was a Kaisercraft kit from 3djean.

My first award

I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy... why you ask has that girl been at the wine again? has she finished yet another UFO ? no Carol has kindly included me in her Circle of Friends. Awww wasn't that nice of her. I feel quite chuffed.

Now I have to tell you about 5 things I like doing and pass it on to 5 other bloggers.

So 5 things

1. I love watching rugby (which I'm doing as I type this).

2 Blog hopping is a favourite.

3 I love reading especially crime, murder you know the sort he did it, no he did, no it was her type

4.I love collecting stash, stash and more stash (you can never have too much stash)

5 .I like doing housework ....... NOT. anyone who knows me knows that this a downright lie.

I'm passing this award in no particular order onto

So it's over to you folks to tell all

UK Monthly Art Raffle

I made this little shadow box at a workshop at Crafty Individuals and I've decided to put it into the UK Monthly Art raffle. I know ... I know I'll regret it but I can't keep everything I make can I ? I could of course make another one. Good job I bought another box in class. So I've put it on my shelf not quite a UFO ( unfinshed object) more a not even started one.

Thanks for dropping by, feel free to leave a comment I like reading them.

Does anyone know what this is?

I can't believe it only the second time this year that my desk has been cleared. There is a reason, I'm on my marathon Christmas card make tomorrow so I need space to get messy! I'll keep you updated.

Playtime at Crafty Individuals

I nearly forgot to show these beauties I made at last week's class with Jean. We've started to tackle the Christmas card list and I can't believe theres only 24 days left. We sponged the frames with Ariondack inks, images, stamps and papers are from CI and I've added German scrap to give that bit of bling. The button was made with a Martha Stewart punch (it's on my Christmas list).The blue card has been embossed through the cuttlebug snowflake folder.
Don't you just love working to a deadline. I've finished teaching classes today so now I can turn all my attention to Christmas, starting with the presents. Thank God for the internet.
