'If you give a Crafter a Cookie' Challenge #109

Wow, only 11 days til Christmas.

Here is our last challenge from If you give a crafter a cookie for the year. 

From all of us at 'If you give a crafter a cookie"

Merry christmas and have a wonderful new year

Now for this challenge, the yummy inspiration is: 
  the challenge sponsor is:
And my card is also being gifted, along with a couple of others I made over the weekend,  to 'Sending Love'  (see below for more details or visit the site)

Hope you like the cards. Again Merry christmas to everyone

Happy crafting: 


Sending love 
Sending Love is about people and communities coming together to make a festive gesture towards another person who may experience loneliness over Christmas. It is one person putting love and thought into a card to pass a smile and a sense of feeling remembered and loved onto another person. It is not an organisation, or a charity; Sending Love is a platform and vehicle to enable sending love from one individual to another. It is an avenue to teach communities and children about the power of a simple act of kindness, and the impact this can have on the recipient. It is also about raising awareness in communities across the country of what may be behind closed doors, the sad reality of the loneliness that exists around us all, and that each and every one of us are empowered and have the capacity to be part changing that.

Christmas Daily - day 2

The advent calenders are up and the kids can't wait for tomorrow a treat.  

 And my preparation for decorating my trees are in full swing. 

I managed to get some old books from the St James gala a couple of months ago
and I am using these to made some vintage decorations. 

takes a bit of time to fold the pages but the results are worth every minute. 

 I used the metal clasps from broken bauble decorations. 
I knew they would come in handy one day. 
These are going to look great on the tree, scheduled to go up next weekend. 
Happy crafting.

DO-AL(L) Creatives - Challenge #24 - Christmas / New Year

So excited about Christmas this year and it's only 25 days away.

And now for the new challenge from DO-AL (l) creatives: 

The challenge #24 is 'Christmas/New Year'

Using one of our sponsor, Digi4Joy images,  
I have created a Chrsitmas Daily journal for this year. 

I love these and it is such a great way to keep track of 
everything you need to do in the 24 days leading up to christmas.  

So here is the cover of my journal:

 The sponsors image worked so well,  and I have furhter plans to use it in the journal itself

So over the next few weeks I will complete the journal pages and add them to the blog, so watch this space (or follow me) and see how the journal turns out. 

Happy crafting
