Batman's Stash!

Holy Batman, that's a lot of Jelly Beans! (just under 2kg's worth)

This is one of the presents under the Tree for my husband - couldn't help but to decorate the jar for him.


Not sure I will be paying to refill it though!

Funnily enough this is one of those times when you thought it was a fabulous idea until you got home and smacked your forehead! Guess what colour are his favourite, and yep, not one black one in here! LOL, do you think he will notice? I'm hoping he is too impressed with my handiwork to notice.......hmmmmm who am I kidding right!

Christmas Themed Altered Canisters

Here are some Christmas Themed Altered Canisters I made using some of the new Single Stamps.

I haven't made any for a while so thought now was a good time to get into the festive season.





I decided not to have a sentiment / greeting stamp on the star as I thought I would give it full focus.

I was NAUGHTY Glasses

Just loved these glasses when I saw them I knew it would be a great Gift to give for both males and females......... the file was created by the talented Cait Elizabeth.

As such, the Whiskey Tumbler on the left is being given to Laura's Male Teacher this morning as an end of year gift.....LOL, being Grade 7 he may have preferred the Whiskey to put in it rather then the mini candy canes!

The wine glass is mine!!!!!! I have given out a few at Christmas Parties I have attended and have a few more to give to some co-workers.


Notice the bow? I made that using the Envelop Punch Board - they are mega easy to make!

CPC30 - Creating Pretty Cards – Card Challenge

As you know, I am one of the Guest Designers over at Craft Project Central this month - can't wait for you to see my project!

But did you know that they have a monthly Card Challenge as well?????

Here's my entry for this months challenge - I made a 5 x 5 card this time, yes I know there is no sentiment on the front, but I thought it is such a tranquil card and would make a lovely Sympathy Card, so have added a sentiment in side.


What you may not also know is that for every ten cards submitted, one winner will be picked for a free month subscription on Craft Project Central!  The winner(s) will get to select the month of their choice!  So if there is 15 submissions this month one winner will be randomly picked from all submissions.  If there are 40 submissions 4 winners from all submissions will be randomly picked and so on! 
So what are you waiting for ! Head on over here and enter - good luck. xx
