       *~*  Crackers its nearly Christmas*~*

 Good morning everyone on this cold day .As you all know its only 2  months till xmas so i thought i better crack on with my xmas cards and handmade gifts.

So Here we are . I have made a box of little crackers with matching xmas card .

To start with i made the  box , this being the size guide i would be working with to make the crackers and the matching card.
 The stamps i used are from Stampin Up. They were perfect to make cute scene settings .

I had no template for the crackers so it was a case of trial and error . But thankfully i got the measurements spot on and it was first time lucky ..fweee!!! 
Thank you all for stopping by and have a fantastic Friday and weekend .

 A male birthday.

Good morning to you all on this very chilly morning .
Today i would like to share a male card with you .

Using a brown ink i stamped onto a piece of stampin up male papers and heat embossed with clear embossing powder . I did the same for the greeting . I layered the image , greeting and backing paper all onto brown handmade fibber papers which i tore around the edges to give more texture and effect wrapping some string and brown  fibbers around the centre image.

Finally i added 3 card candi and a die cut key which i heat embossed and added a chain for movement .
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge

  Tag swaps ..For October

Good morning thank you for popping by.
Today i'm sharing a couple of things that i made yesterday . 
Firstly here are a couple of tags i made for our group October tag swap. The theme is Halloween . 
The 1st tag i made using black card heat embossing some Halloween stamps onto it and then covering in a purple cosmic shimmer mist. I then cut out a a plain black witch on her broom stick and covered it with a thick layer of cosmic shimmer and extra thick embossing powder.
                 ((The pictures don't really do it justice ))


My 2nd tag is  ""sweet Halloween "" I thought that not every thing should be scary , so cute was the way to go !!!

And finally here is a birthday card i have made for my Nephew. The stamps are from PaperArtsy . I really enjoyed using them. 

Thank you for dropping by and taking a look at my work. Hope you have a fantastic Friday .
