New digis......

I was sent some new digital stamps to play with from a new company called The Scrapbook Stamp Society - take a look over there, their designs are trendy, fun and a joy to colour. Here's what I made, I love this first one for a male birthday...........


and this image is just so sassy, she would be perfect for a teen who is into clubbing (when did they stop being called discos, and become clubs?) Thanks to my good pal Kath, for the idea for the bow.....



This Christmas image is so different, look at all the little peace signs in the snowflakes......



and I love the manga type images they do, you can use such funky colours on them........




Look what came in the post today, this month's Project of the Month kit from Craftwork Cards, called Kraft with Colour. Anyone who orders this months kit gets a free Cards magazine, worth £10 in with their order. You get a project sheet with lovely designs by Julie Hickey. Julie was my very first cardmaking idol - when I got bitten by the card bug, I bought one of her card books in WH Smiths, and studied it for hours. Little did I think then, that one day I would be on a design team that she leads (and she is the sweetest person you could wish to meet as well as being uber talented, you can see her on QVC, and see her work on the CWC blog).

This is just some of the stuff that was in my pack - look out later this week to see what I come up with.......





Three pots of homemade soup cooling before they go in the freezer (my family loves soup), french onion, broccoli and stilton, and cream of mushroom. We have a family tradition that on Boxing Day, we throw a large piece of pork in the oven, and lunch is homemade soup, followed by hot roast pork rolls with stuffing and apple sauce. I think we all enjoy it more than the turkey on Christmas day



and the tree is finally finished, and the presents are stacking up nicely under it

I hope you are not all too exhausted by the manic run-up-to-the-big-day, I am on top of things, and may even get to delve into my new goodies tomorrow..

Sounds like you already put hubbys Stilton to good use, eh?
Our Christmas is very different this year. Things are a bit nutsy around here right now, but they will calm down eventually and I'm determined that Christmas day will be a great day.

Your cards are so cute. I love those sassy girls and their party clothes. I'm not near as ready as you are. I spend too much time reading blogs like yours. Thank you so much for the comment and holiday wishes. You've really inspired me to start updating my blog regularly. That's my New Year's resolution.
