Bethlehem Card


When I was blog hopping I saw this card on Creating in Carolina Blog
I knew I needed this file from Doodle Pantry, just as well I brought it as the EU is bringing in new rules and a lot of the sites I usually buy from will be unable to sell to people who live in the EU from 1st January 2015.  It has even caused some site to close their doors - stupid EU

This card is just perfect for my friend I cut the SVG file on my Brother Scan N Cut
I have added a little glitter but it doesnt show up very well on the photo
The background paper is from a pack I brought in The Range last January in their sales I also used the same paper to make the envelope so it all matched

This card is for the following challenges

Christmas Hat Cards



I have made these hats on my Brother Scan N Cut
using a wonder free cutting file from Bird Cards Blog
She is so talented and shares her creations
The words where also done by the Scan N Cut
I made the red ones for most people but we have a team at work who did not want to put up any decorations so I thought the Bah Humbug hat worked for them. 
I made 120 red ones and 20 black ones
The white with the words and the bobble I have sprayed with glitter glue to give them sparkle 
but my camera doesn't pick it up very well

These are for the following challenges

Bad Blogger

Just popping on to apologise for being such a bad bloggers.
 A number of things have been against me but hopefully things are now improving
You may remember last time I blogged I was off work with a chest infection
To treat it the Doctors suggested a steroid based inhaler.  
A few years ago I had steroid tablets and had a really bad effect to them, 
causing me to suffer mental anxiety and panic. attacks
I was assured as it was inhaler it would be ok!
Needless to say I reacted to them and became an over-active blubbering idiot again.
I have been off them for a few weeks and things are a lot better - a new inhaler has been issued that is non steroid based and Doctors think I have developed adult asthma, so as I pointed out to DH its official I am now an adult.

I have been busy making some bits and bobs and will back later to share.
Was pleased that all presents where brought and wrapped by the start of December, but then had a panic over my Christmas Cards as I had not made any but they are all done and as last I feel a bit relaxed and able to face more off the world.

Sorry to be have been such a bad blogger but I hope you understand

This card has been stamped directly onto the card stock
I have used my new Card-Io stamps I brought at the NEC
