BtCR January 25th

My Christmas card tally to date … t 0

The new linky party is launched over at Creative Craft World. Our aim is to be well ahead with Christmas card making when November 25th arrives. Check out the launch post here.

I’m going to do my best to make five cards each month so that it won’t be such a blind panic trying to get organised later on in the year. This month I have been very naughty and not even started but I promise to make more for next month.

Each month the design team will be featuring their favourite card from the previous month’s linkies. This is our first month, of course, so I’ve looked through some of my favourites and have chosen this one:

I love the simplicity of this card, I am a very simple crafter as many of you know and I just cannot make my cards and LO’s too fuss. This card can be found here.


I hope you will join in.

Well I am finally joining the world of peeking into other people’s worlds and seeing their desks.

Sorry I’ve been AWOL for a few weeks life been hectic and we’ve all been quite poorly but fingers crossed we are all on the mend now.

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and new year? Any resolutions made? I’m trying to scrap my year this year so am going to scrap my resolutions I think. So look out for them.

Anyway onto what’s on my work desk, well this week I’m busy cake making as opposed to scrapping so my desk this week is my kitchen,

I was lucky enough to get a cricut cake for Christmas so I have been playing with it making dad a birthday cake. Poppy chose to decorate with dinosaurs – she has a thing about dragons and dinosaurs at the moment so that’s what we did.

Right I’m off to have a peek around some desks and see what you’ve all been up to.

I’m not sure what happened to picture of desk will have a play after school run but here’s the pictures of my first attempt with the cricut

Our First Scrap Map of 2013


I cannot believe I am writing 2013 already it seems so scary!

Anyway as it is the first saturday of the month it means there is a brand new scrap map over on the Creative Craft World blog, so pop on over here to check out the beautiful LO’s created using the scrap map.

As many of you know life has been hectic here with illness and things but fingers crossed it might be turning the corner and finally settling down which means I can get back into scrapping and crafting again.
