bit of this and that

  A little bit of card making. stamps SU bird cage, HA greeting and darkroom door, background.
Copic colouring practice 
I even made a start on my Christmas cards. digi stamp CC's sugarplums.

And made the neighbourhood kids some goody bags (with my silhouette of course)

Another Christmas card, grunge paper background, stamps HA and SU and various die cut snowflakes also cut out of the grunge paper.

And a layout of my sweet nephew.

Pulled out my itop brad maker again for the felt brads (they still make me happy) and some SU corduroy buttons (not sure why SU would even think to discontinue these little beauties, so much texture, yum) Felt scallop border cut with a quickutz border die. Stamps Technique Tuesday, love Ali Edward's designs.

And this makes me so happy. Our little plum tree in the backyard has fruit on it in it's very first year, not much mind you but still exciting for us. I love watching the trees blossom and the fruit start to grow, kind of satisfying.

Oh my word you have some gorgeous cards there... and the layout is perfect.

Waiting to see which of those spring blossoms set into fruit is one pf my fav times in the garden too. It looks like our Cherry Tree is going to fruit for the first time in 3 years. I am excited!!

Oh and in other news, my early Chrissy pressie arrived last week. I finally got a Silhouette SD. LOVE IT!
