A Pretty Ghost

Just before Hannah left home to start her new job, she went out with a friend to a Halloween fancy dress party.

 As she is so vain Hannah couldn't possibly dress up as anything gory, so she chose Marie Antoinette as her character for the night.

The skirt was hand made by the wearer, and the papers for the page are Graphic 45, along with a sprinkle of die cut bats.

She loos great here at the start of the night, but was not so well later, despite me warning her to stay sober as she was moving house the next morning.  Her hangover was a far better punishment than anything I could say!

September Project Life.

A very busy month due to work, and a weekend trip to Aberystwyth with Katie heading off to University.

A family funeral following the sad death of my Uncle and lots of (very dull) work.
Not much time for anything else :)

Last cards

As a church goer and a teacher in a faith school I do have lots of friends who appreciate a religious Christmas card.  Not always the easiest to find resources for, but here are my offerings for this year.

New nativity and sentiment dies and a couple of older stamps from a while back.

Christmas Cards version 2.

More cards today.

A bit less traditional this time with  a much brighter colour palette of lime green and pink.

I made use of a very old set of 6x6 Dovecraft papers and a set of really doilies to bring the cards up to date.

Christmas Cards Version 1.

My cards are made, it's what I spend October half term doing as I like to reserve December for my Christmas journal (preparation for which is already underway.) This first set were made using mostly traditional Anna Griffin papers, with a few added stamped images (white heat embossed on kraft) and the odd die cut.

I picked up some label die cuts by AG, they were perfect for stamping onto with the set of wrapping paper stamps.

More cards later :)

Not lazy

just overwhelmed at work.
A quick post about our trip to Wales back in mid September.   Hard to believe most of the Autumn was so beautiful until I looked at these photos of our day in Barmouth.

 The page is one following a sketch on UKs for a challenge.
 Flowers are die cut using an Xcut die.
I will try to keep up with my blog....

Harry was delighted to receive a Slanket for his 16th birthday, you would think it an odd gift, but for a teenager who loves to slump on the sofa it fit the bill perfectly!

 The page was made for the UKS weekly challenge last week. following a handy sketch.

 Background stamp by Unity, papers Graphic 45, leaf die by Xcut.
