Final Christmas cards

Hello - I hope you all had a great Christmas.  Are you all out for New Years parties or are you stopping in like me?  Well I thought I wouold post a couple of piccies of the Xmas cards I made for my mum and dad and the one I made for my husband.  Also there's one of Steve's birthday card too as it is on the 23rd of December - My dad's b'day was on Christmas eve but I forgot to take photos of the cards I made for him so will have to do that when I am next visiting.
So, here are the Christmas cards;

This is Steve's Christmas card - a house mouse stamp from Joanna Sheen and papers and hearts printed and cut on my Cricut.  The ribbon is an East of India ribbon from Polka Doodles - they are just yummy.

 This card was my folks Xmas card.  Another House mouse image with flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts .  The sentiment is a Whimsy sentiment.  I was quite pleased with this card and my mum loved it.

 This card was Steve's birthday card.  Yet another House Mouse image.  Thsi one is called 'Dip' and I think it has to be my favourite.  The papers are from a Nit Wit collection which I have distress inked around the edges and stitched too.  The buttons are from Bo Bunny.  I finished it off with a faux ribbon and some string.  I thought this card was cute but I didn't want it to be too girly.  Steve liked it so I think I got it right for him ;o)
Well I hope you like these cards.  What has everyone got planned for the New Year?  Anything exciting?  As I mentioned I have something in the pipeline and I shall reveal all as soon as I can.
Take care all

Cricut magazine

Hi everyone - well first of all Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.  I hope you are all coping with the snow if you have it - I am hoping to get out tomorrow to do the last of my food shopping but with another few inches forecast for tonight I am not over confident.  Anyway I hope you all have a great time over the festive season.
Now, I don't know if you have heard but there is a new Cricut magazine out which is a bi-monthly and covers all the machines from the baby bug to the cake and the Imagine.  It's full of inspiration and ideas and looks like a nice publication.  I am hoping to sell this magazine in the New Year but am wondering how much interets I am going to get.  So pass this on and get people who are interested to follow my blog and leave a comment after this post.  I am hoping to get some more followers next year and am going to post more often and probably have a few blog candys if I can get the interets.  I also have a new venture in the pipeline for the new year and am hoping people will be interetsed in that too - so watch this space. 
So, don't forget to pass this on if anyone you know is a Cricut fan as I would like a guideline so I know how many magazines to order as a starter.
Take care everyone and enjoy Christmas but keep warm

Squiggles DT Call

Well Hello again.  Haven't been here for a little while as I have felt really rotten and have desperately been trying to do Christmas cards and birthday cards for this month.  Anyway this is a message about the DT call for guest designers for Squiggles stamps blog .  I thought I would enter the following cards as I absolutely love squiggles and it would be a dream come true to be a designer for them!  So although you've seen them before here they are together for the Squigglees folks to have a look at.  If I have the time I might make some more but the way things are I shall soon meet myself coming back LOL. 

I have quite a few more squiggles stamps but they want to see Christmas images this time so I hope these are ok!
Well Here's praying and keeping all digits firmly crossed that the Squiggles team like my cards! 
I will be back very soon with a few House mouse images and also some fab new Polka Doodles images too
Take care all
