WOW time flies by . .

when you have loads to do and no time to do it in! Unfortunately lots happening at Chez Lou and this has left me with little or no crafting time and as a result my blog has been sorely neglected, so apologies to everyone and many thanks for keep popping by.

I have had the chance this week to make a few crafty things as I need to get organised with my cards and presents. Here are some decorations I have been making for the girls at work to say "thank you" for all their support . . . now I hope they like them otherwise I'm scuppered as my idea pool is very dry this year . .

I have overdone the glitter on my chipboard snowflakes and it is shedding everywhere in my house and not being a glitter person, it's driving me insane! I then cut out some flourishes and layered up with scalloped and circle punches with the centre being decorated with a large button and some scrummy bias ribbon. Apologies for the poor photos and will try to take some more tomorrow, hopefully in better light.

I made some simple packaging to put my decorations in as am conscious that I my be running out of time and they need to be given out on Monday!!! (Whoops . . . photos of packaging was even worse than my decorations . . . need to take some more  . . .)Well better get going as I have made 5 sets but need to make another 3 . . .

I am entering my decorations to the following challenges:

Crafty Catz - anything goes
Fairy Tale Challenge - gift plus packaging (photo of packaging to follow)
Fussy and Fancy - photo inspirations and my inspiration was to make a Christmas tree decoration
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Little Miss Muffet - buttons and ribbons
Crafts and Me challenges - snow/snowflakes

OK better get back to it as these won't make themselves,
