Texture Time...

Hi Everyone,

This week its Tammy who is our Hostess on MAWTT. She chose the theme of Texture and I really was scratching my head. I eventually went for some swiss dots card and a pretty border die. 
I love white on White Christmas Cards they are stunning. So I hope you like it too.

Snow Poop!!!! (and weekend piccys)

 Hi Everyone,

Here is my Whimsy Inspiration for this week. I have used the brilliant Wee Snow Happy from Stamp Art Designs By Kathryne. Isnt he just the cutest. You also get a free bonus sentiment file with your order.
 Now I have been trawling  over Pinterest and found this brilliant sentiment and some tic tacs so thought I would go for a couple of cards using it for the Craft Fair!!! Thought it would raise a smile!!!

Sentiment from Pinterest.
I had a very busy weekend and am now so tired!!! On Saturday Mum, Tom and I went to the Mortuary Chapel in our town. Its a Sandstone Chapel (Non Denominational) which dates back from the 1870s. It was built by a Local Man Patrick Allan Fraser. Its not open very often but its been Angus Heritage Weekend so we popped over. I have been a few times and adore the stonework. Heres a couple of pictures. 
 This is beside the front doors. The outside stonework is sadly worn away with the Scottish weather. 
 There are all sorts of animals in the stonework
Heres Tom looking down over the main chapel.
It was stunning. I managed to stay a wee while so a big plus for me!!!! (Even though it was quite busy!!!) 
Hope you enjoyed looking, Thanks for dropping by,

Shaped Cards...

Good morning and Happy Thursday, Phew the weekend is in sight!!!

 The theme this week on MAWTT is Shaped Cards picked by Debs. I decided to keep up the Festive theme and have made a Cracker Card (and some others!!!) 
I got these cards from a friend who didn't want them anymore. They are from Craftwork Cards. The papers are a freebie from a magazine. I think they are a Kanban One. I have made a couple of them with different papers too. All for the Craft Fair next Sunday (Gulp!!!) 

Thanks for dropping by today.
