Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat..

... 53 days!!  and today is November 1st!!!!!!!!
Whoever has their finger on the fast forward button of this year could you please remove it! Thanks!

I didn't blog much last week - don't worry I didn't disappear under a collapsed pile of christmas decorations I was just busy doing other bits and pieces.. but I'm still enjoying working with my stamps (obviously! lol) and if you want to enjoy them too you can order them from PaperArtsy or you can enter the competition in the gloriously festive December issue of Craft Stamper:
I've been making samples ready for my demo at Birds in the Barn (colchester) on Sunday; I've made the star card on the left before but in blue&kraft but made this pink version for a change - I love how fresh it looks... and gotta love hanging baubles on a tag! (Card: star from plate8, greeting from plate2, corner snowflakes mini6)(tag: hanging baubles plate 3, snowflakes mini6)
 I haven't used buttons on anything for a while (shock horror!) so I made up for it on this star!
One final sample - again a version of a card I've made before but this time with more greetings and more bling!  There hasn't been nearly enough bling on cards so far.... (subtle bling obviously -not bling Liberace style!) and lets face it - its why I've sprinkled my designs with circles etc - bling placement! lol  (also the bling is a reaction to the dark days that are coming with Autumn/Winter...) (also its Christmas - Christmas *expects* bling, sparkles, glitter, etc etc etc....) (Card: tree plate4, greeting plate2)
Have a great day...


  1. Love your stamps Jo, just have to do some class prep today then I'm going to crack them open! Have waited long enough!

  2. Love the stmps Jo and the cards you made with them. I always overdo it with the colour but seeing your work reminds me that clean and simple is so very elegant - off to do the comp now.
