Hello and Welcome...

Hello & Welcome...My name is Anne-Marie, I am a full-time administration assistant for a local housing association, I have a husband, two adult sons, and a mad dog named Fritz. I spend any spare minute crafting (although there are never enough spare minutes)...anything from making cards, papercrafts, knitting, crochet, baking and making jams, curds etc. I also enjoy growing my own fruit/veg in my greenhouse/garden.

I hope I will post something that may be of interest to you.

Gruffies & Guests Challenge #11 Anything Goes with the Option of Christmas

Hi everyone

I'm so sorry for not being around in blog land for a while, I have been very busy with my wedding preparations!  I got married in Mauritius on 27th October :) but I am back now and hopefully will be able to give more time to my blog, and facebook crafty page and get on with some crafting.

I made my first (yes I said first) Christmas card today!  I'm soooooooooo behind with Christmas preparations :(

My DT card is for the halfway reminder for Gruffies & Guests challenge #11 Anything Goes with the Option of Christmas...and here it is...

I've used a lovely embossed glitter card as the background and the gorgeous house mouse image is from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Triple cd, there are some fantastic images on these cds.

The prize this month is £10 to spend online at Scribble and Scrap Crafts


I hope my card inspires you to have a go, please join in the fun of the challenges, we love to see all of your fab creations each month. 

Thanks for popping in.

Anne-Marie xx
