Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

I just wanted to pop on and wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!

Thank you to everyone that still comments, I know my posts have been a bit scarce this year and I have been a tad 'ignorant' to say the least, I hope to change that i the New Year, I will be glad to see the back of this one which I have found difficult!!

Anyway, What I haven't got now it's too late, I feel poorly with a cold and I am going to snuggle with my hubby, son & our 3 fur babies and watch the Wizard of Oz and eat junk!!

Tomorrow I am off to my sisters for Christmas lunch....although I am cooking the Turkey for 15 no pressure then!!!

Anyway, I hope you all have a fantastic christmas and a wonderful New year

Love Sarah

P.S I popped in to Hobbycraft today and got some christmas MME glittered stacks half price, it's worth a look folks!!

Passion for Promarkers Christmas Extravaganza

Good morning crafters, we hope you are surviving the very cold weather we’re having at the moment. It’s definitely the perfect weather for staying indoors and crafting!! If unfortunately you do have to venture outside, like me, make sure you wrap up warm and take care on the icy roads and pavements!

We would like to stay a massive thank you for all your support for our blog hop and special challenge over the past 2 weeks. It has been wonderful to visit all your blogs and see the fantastic talent and creativity around in blogland! You certainly made it a blog hop to remember. Please check back later this evening to find out if you are one of our lucky winners. As we stated at the start of the challenge we unfortunately won’t be choosing any top 5 passionista as we will be too busy sorting out all the prize winners – I’m sure you’ll understand.

Following on from our blog hop & special challenge we now have a Mega Christmas challenge for you which will last until January 4th 2011. I’m sure you’ll agree that the design team deserve a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards. However to make up for the lack of challenges we again have some magnificent prizes up for grabs.

Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is a nice easy one “anything goes”, just remember to use your promarkers or aqua markers to be eligible for our prizes. Don’t forget you can enter as many times as you like and combine with any other challenges.

So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!

Letraset are generously offering a set of 40 promarkers in specific craft colours stored in two promarker wallets – fab eh!

Wowzers, I am sure you will agree that is a fab line up of prizes so get your PM'S at the ready, pop by the PFP blog for some inspiration and get creating to be in with a chance!!

Here is my card, I used a fab Elzybells stamp as the main image and the sentiment is also by Elzybells, first time these have seen ink.......i will use all my stamps eventually...LOL

The DSP is Imaginisce Polar Expressions Frosted Forest, the little flecks of snow are glittered, this is last years paper, not sure if it is still available.

The Nesties I have used are called Lacey Circles and are available here at Stampeezee. For the snow I used Twinklets Diamond Dust, had that over 12 months and only just opened rubbish am i??

Of course I coloured the image with Promarkers

Hope you can join in the fun, I am looking forward to seeing all your fab creations

Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.

I Re-discovered my cricut!!!!

Happy Sunday bloggers, sorry I have been AWOL again not sure where the time goes!!

Anyway, I was thinking of selling my cricut, after all it just sits in my craft room collecting dust!!! I borrowed New Arrival from a friend and found some great baby cuts on it so I started looking at what else was available!

I am overwhelmed by the amount of cartridges out there now and the cuts in my opinion have got so much better than they used to be. I fancied the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge so i ordered it from Ebay Thursday night and postie delivered it Saturday.......Yay

The first thing I wanted to make was this cute Kitty card, yes this cartridge has fab card feature on it, this one is from page 74, I thought this cute shaped card was perfect for all the kiddies I need to send cards to. I cut Kitty and all the layers at 8 1/4", this gave me a great sized card and I had envelopes that were perfect (I will check size and post it later).

The cartridge has Kitty cuts for all occassions of the year, even a graduation!!!
I know I will use them all, every single cut on this cartridge is just too cute for words and the accessories are adorable, they include, cherries, a strawberry, a sun, butterfly, cupcake, a present, a teddy baloon amongst others!!!

If you like Hello Kitty this cartride is a must, I will be posting more Kitty cards soon!!

Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.
