 This week I have been sorting orders for these little christmas decorations that will be off to their new homes tomorrow, I have called them Holly Tailed Kitties they are very cute and I know they will look lovely on any cat lovers tree this Christmas!

I have also been restocking my Christmas puds, trees and gingerbread men.  I love my puds!!!

Right I am off now to carry on with sewing, I am attempting to make a garland this time, I just hope it works the way I have it planned in my mind lol  

Catch you all soon 


Sparkles Challenge - Remembrance

Look At This!!!

I just wanted to share a quick post about a gorgeous Kit that has landed on my door mat this week from the lovely Karen
I have never had a kit from her before or anyone else for that matter and I have always wondered what exactly was in the gorgeous package.  
Well here is a piccy of what I have to play with in this month's 
BLOOMS Kit (xmas for this month)
There is quite simply LOADS of stuff, I had to squeeze it all together to get it all in the picture there are flowers on flowers and a huge mass of card candy and check out the pile of different chipboard snow flakes!

I cant wait to get making with these goodies, if you find getting your colours combo's and themes right on cards then these kits really help!  
Karen also has card makers kits available too!  In fact you could buy both and you would be totally sorted!
Each Kit is £11 Posted in the uk, she does ship internationally for a extra £1.00, don't think you can beat that its a fab deal! 

If you want to find out more then check out the details 
Karen is a lovely lady so feel free to ask her about her kits she will be more than happy to help.

I will be back tomorrow with a Brand New Sparkles Challenge 
Bye for now

Craft Your Days Away - Spooky colour theme

Happy Saturday all, we have a new challenge over at Craft Your Days Away and it is a colour theme all to do with Halloween so Purple, Green, Orange, Black you get the idea I am sure.  
This fortnight we are sponsered by 

Here is my take on the theme, I dont have much call for halloween type cards 
so thought I would make a treat bag.

 The halloween papers are from Susans crafty chaos online digi store and are a brilliant set I used them last year and there are so many fabby designs in the set very spooky!
The spider and cobweb are from Tesco, you can buy a pack of them for £1.00 and there are loads of spiders in them and enough cobwebs to make lots of packs!  The lollipops are from matalan they have lots of spooky treats for you to buy including body parts and eyeballs. The ticket sentiment is a freebie that is on the net.

We are a multicraft challenge blog so there are lots of spooky options if you dont want to make a card, I look forward to seeing what you come up with on my visits to your blogs.
Have a great weekend

Its Halloween over at Sparkles Challenges

Good morning we have a new challenge over at Sparkles Challenges and the theme is Halloween.  We are a multi crafts challenge blog so your options are open they must fit the theme of the challenge.  This fortnight we are sponsored by Crafty Emmas store

So this fortnight I have made 2 items following the theme, one is a pumpkin made from fabric and felt.  The other make is a spooky ghost decoration, more of these can be made to hang around the house or to make a garland of ghosts to hang over a fireplace or in a window maybe.  Both are really simple to make.

I look forward to seeing your spooky makes thanks so much for popping by
