Do you love our Christmas catalogue?  This year Stampin' Up! have provided us with extra Christmas themed products in a Merry & Bright Christmas supplement. 

Click here to see it.  The products in this catalogue are only whilst stocks last so you need to be in quick. 

I am placing an order on Wednesday night 22nd October, so if you'd like to order anything, please let me know.  Or you can place an order through my online store any time.

Christmas Blog Hop



Welcome to another blog hop by the Creative Inkers Team - this time our theme is Christmas. 

I've chosen two cards to share with you this time - the first one I found online somewhere and I don't remember who to credit but if its yours I love it.  It uses some gorgeous glittery stars and it looks equally gorgeous in green.  The second is the very clever wreath from the Holiday Catalogue.  If you've not had the chance to see these new products up close then let me know - they are fabulous.




Please leave us comments as you go along - we love to hear what you think!
  
If you've been following the blog hop you will have come from Ria Kaire's blog.  Your next stop is Kathe Oldham's page.   If you get 'lost' there is a list of all the blogs at the bottom of this post.

Happy Birthday Aimee

Today is our youngest daughter's 4th Birthday.  Where oh where did that time go?  One of her favourite toys is a monkey that used to be her Daddy's when he was little and Daddy calls her his little monkey, so a monkey card it had to be. 

I was surfing the web last week and came across Kim Score's Raggedy Ann.  It was so cute and just the technique I needed for my monkey.  This is my version - I hope you like it.  Let me know what you think and if you try this technique for yourself I'd love to see your creations.

 
 
I have a video to show you how it opens and folds flat however as I went to add it to this post I discovered I need hubby's expertise to make the file smaller.  I will add it as soon as I can.
