Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year

Good afternoon Blogger's. Christmas is almost with us and then we have the New Year.
I hope that each and everyone of you as a super Christmas and a wonderful New Year. For me I hope 2012 brings me joy and NO health problems.
I know the world isn't going to end in 2012 as the tins of beans I bought yesterday have a sell by date of September 2013, so we are all safe for another year. LOL
Anyway - sorry I haven't blogged for this month - not felt like crafting and lost my mojo. Still can't find it. I'm sure that it will return in the New Year - it's got to as I have 5 birthday cards to make for January!
So I thought I would share some of my favourite cards that I had made this year.

This was my very first TeddyBo card - gosh look where the bears have been this year. All around the world and featured in Magazine's. Can't believe it's Bo and Bea's birthday soon.
I hope that you will be celebrating with us at all at Teddy Towers......we promise that we will be on our best behaviour! 

Then there is a few Magnolia cards - Gosh I must use my Maggies more often. There hasn't been many cards created with them this year.

Then I fell in love with Saturated Canary - such sweet digital stamps

I adore Mo Manning's too but again not used them as much as I should. LOTV stamps are just the cutest and give me such a lot of inspiration and have a very talented design team.

Well, thats it from me. Like everyone else there is lots to do in the next few days. I have last minute gifts to buy and shopping.....hide my ironing lol
You will now catch me in the New Year. 
Merry Christmas
Loads of Loves & Hugs

Another Paper Star

I'm totally loving these and have had 3 orders so far.
  This one is an order - ordered by my Grand-daughter Holly-Marie.
She walked in the other day and saw the magnolia one I did - " oh Nana, that's cute - pretty ".
So after she went home I glued together and printed the stamp that she picked. I actually thought she would go for the ballerina Bea as she is for ever getting me to print it off for her to colour.
So it was a big surprise that she picked Bo.
I have coloured TEDDYBO_155 with Poly Pencils and blended with sansodor.
Back-ground dots have been achieved with Pro-markers. I have mounted him on to gold mirror card, then placed him on to a Magnolia DooHickey Cutting Die - Tilda Doily. Cheese cloth placed behind too.  Added lots of snowflakes around the star with gems in the centre.
Holly herself punched the smaller snowflakes.
Small gold bow as been added to Bo's jumper - cute.
Yesterday - whilst I was busy cleaning and Holly's Mummy on the computer ( not keeping an eye on Holly ) I thought " Holly is rather quiet ". I found her in my craft room drawing on my Bristol Board ( and its not cheap ), sticking my new gems on the card and colouring with my Poly pencils.....there was PVA glue and glitter every where and glimmer mist on her eyes 
( think she thought it was eye shadow ) - Tammy being calm, which isn't often said " Holly what are you doing "?  Her reply " making Nana and Grandad a card - look ". Now...... I couldn't tell her it was wrong or be angry - she looked so sweet and angelic. She took her creation home.....I so wanted to take a picture of her but she wouldn't let me. 
I'd like to enter this star in Ready-Teddy-Go Challenge - Anything Goes
Thank you all that left me wonderful comments on my previous paper star - I am truly over whelmed.
I have two more to make, so I hope you don't get fed up of seeing them.
Off to bed now - catch you all soon.
Hugs & Loves
