And even MORE from the new Stamping Bella release...

Hi Lovelies..

I'm back yet again with more cards using the fabulous new images from Stamping Bella that were released last week.

Today's first card uses Simone Loves Strawberries....  but I turned my strawberries into pink chocolate truffles...  I could almost taste them as I coloured them - my mouth was watering!

I made a shaker card using the Mama Elephant Tri Window Cover Die..  and used the sentiment inside one of the windows.  Believe it or not, the sentiment is centred, but because of the angle of the photograph, it appears not to be!

Then for my second make, I used the fabulous Curvy Girl With Good Balance - isn't she just fabulous there balancing on her scales??  I think I'll be doing a bit of that in the near future, as, like all of us, I've eaten lots over Christmas.

Hope you like my makes today - and that you'll pop over to the Stamping Bella Blog and the Sistahood Facebook page for more inspiration.  And if you're really quick - you can still get 20% discount store wide at Stamping Bella!  But the offer ends 1 January.

Now - I'd just like to wish you all a wonderful New Year - and to thank you for all the comments and love you've left for me this year...  I enjoy reading each and every one - they provide me with so much encouragement!

Big Hugs

Happy Christmas!!!

Hi Lovelies...

OK, I'm back... not quite up to full strength yet as the operation I had took more getting over than I thought it would.  But I did manage to do a little colouring this week..  and here's the result.

This Santa is a freebie from Create a Smile Stamps - he's a joy to colour.  I've got to credit the lovely Anita Madden for the design inspiration as my mojo has taken a holiday, so thanks Anita!

And.... I had been meaning to make these Christmas gnomes for a little while, so I did a bit of pom-pom making while I've been recuperating - I love how they turned out!  A very simple small white pom-pom, a scrap of felt, a wooden bead for the nose, and little tiny woollen bobbles for the top of their hats...  done! 

Thank you all for visiting my blog over this last year and leaving me such lovely comments....  each and every one is appreciated. 

Now - I'd love to wish you and your families a very, very Happy Christmas - and here's to a wonderful 2019!
