Happy New Year!

Our first challenge of 2017 over at STAMPING SENSATIONS is

********Coffee and Cream********

and we have a lovely prize up for grabs this month!!

Hopefully you will all be getting back into the swing of things again and have time to enter!!

I got a lovely box of Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils (essentials set) from my Son Deaglan  for Christmas which I used to colour this lovely little stamp, which I treated myself too over Christmas.
It was a real challenge this time. 1. using similar tone pencils 2. a CAS design into the bargain lol. But this is my finished card and I am happy enough for a first attempt with the pencils.

Well how did you put in your New Year's Eve. Ours was pretty quiet besides the constant ping from phones lol. We got some snacks out, watched a film and tried our very best to see in the new year but failed at 11:30! But by the time we got into bed, the fireworks were blasting away outside so we did actually see it in lol. Lets hope its a healthy and happy new year for us all.
Thanks for dropping by and be sure and enter this months challenge!!

Well Christmas has passed peacefully in the O'Hagan residence. It was lovely but very exhausting. Myself and hubby seemed to spend most of Christmas day feeding people and doing dishes, from breakfast through to tea time! Glad of the rest on boxing day lol.
I got a lovely box of pencils for one of my Christmas presents so will hopefully be practicing with them soon.
Did you get anything craft related this year? Let me know!!
Will be dropping round to see everyone shortly.

Money bags!

Dropping in to share one of the little money gift bags I created for my family for their Christmas money. I got the bags at the works. This one has been stamped using a Penny Black Jolly critters stamp. I coloured it using Edding Textile Pens. The name was handwritten ( like you couldn't guess lol). I bought some chocolate coins to go in there along with their money.

Well I am dosed with the cold yet again! I don't know why it keeps coming back, third time now from October and I'm pretty peeved off! I have way to much to get done to be bothered with it.
I'm about half way through my Christmas shopping but plan to get some done this weekend, well hopefully it all then its just the dinner to shop for. We will be having just six of us this year as grandkids are off to their other grandparents for Christmas. So probably a quiet one lol.

I've had a day of crafting, nice and leisurely for a change! Getting through my orders nicely but not near ready to start anything for myself! Shop bought ones again me thinks.
Weather is supposed to be warm and sunny tomorrow (well warm for November lol) so I'll probably be out scooping up the remains of Autumn from my garden. The leaves are flying about everywhere with the wind today so hopefully them will be well emptied! Its a hard job but I secretly enjoy it, just don't tell the rest of them lol.
Have a great weekend, whatever you are up to!
