Die-Cember Feature & A Shabby Chic Heart

Hello lovely peeps,
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. 
As a few of my friends already know my family has had a pretty tough week and most definitely not the Christmas we were hoping for as hubby suffered a stroke last Sunday morning. Hubs is being transferred to a specialist Stroke rehabilitation unit tomorrow morning which unfortunately will mean travelling further to visit him but at least he will be receiving the expert care he needs.
I did get spoilt with crafty stash for Christmas, hubs bought me 15 new Magnolia's and my DT spend from my lovely friends at Simon Says Stamp arrived and that also has new Magnolia's & Doo Hickey's inside it, I seriously cannot wait to find time to get inking and playing :)

Today on the fabulous 
 I have the huge honor of  having a little creation of mine featured in the
celebrations, and I am featuring Magnolia Doo Hickey's.
Here is a little sneak peek -
 Please hop over to the Simon Says Stamp Store Blog I'd love to know what you think of my creation and don't forget to leave a comment to be in with the chance of winning a lovely goodie bag :)
As my playtime is limited at the moment I thought I'd also share with you a little something I created as a gift for my Great Nephew & Niece's mummy for Christmas.
Sammie loves "shabby chic" so I decorated a wicker heart and then sprayed painted it all with a light coating of paint for that lovely shabby look. 
I have temporarily deactivated my Etsy shop listings as looking after hubs has to be my priority and as soon as life settles again and returns to some sort of "normality" I will add some new goodies.
That's it from me tonight peeps, sorry it's a flying visit & thanks for stopping by

Bling Bling! - Simon Says Stamp DT & Mini Candy Winner

Hello lovely peeps,
The weather here today is vile! We've got heavy rain & gale force winds and I'm sooooooo happy that I have a day off today & I can snuggle on the sofa with my tens machine and heat pillow on my poor shoulder. I love being at home on days like this :) My Christmas tree lights are twinkling, I'm warm & cozy, so very tired & fighting the urge to close my eyes as I have a huge pile of unopened parcels in need of sorting and wrapping & a pile of cards needing writing & posting. Guess who's worked way too many hours this past week but I am determined today I am finally going to get myself organised for Christmas :)

On to today's cards, I say cards as I have a few to share & -
& this week our challenge is
 i.e anything sparkly goes, glitter, gems, stickles, glimmer sprays and paints etc :-)

As it will be Christmas Day next Wednesday this challenge will continue for 2 whole weeks and will finish on New Years Day. SO there will be 2 $50 vouchers to give away !! Woo Hoo !! 

My lovely teamies & I are featuring Simon Says Stamps gorgeous exclusive products on our cards this week, if you have some we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to enter our challenge.

On this little card I have sprayed some white paint and then I used the gorgeous Falling Snow stencil with glitter snow paste to give a really snowy effect. I cut the cute Layered Tree with Simon's Woodgrain cardstock, & as always you can find all the links are at the end of my post :)

I'm entering my card in the following challenge -
Make It Monday - anything goes

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with  2 x $50 vouchers for the fabulous

I've been playing with lots of Simon's gorgeous exclusive goodies and here is a few more "flat cards" I've created to try and keep down postage costs. I'm so glad I did create some flat cards as Royal Mail have already had far too much of my wages lol.
I love the kraft & white combination this year & the Falling Snow stencil is a firm favourite of mine as you can see :)
 Ho Ho Ho stencil & Maryanne Snowflake
Falling Snow stencil & Layered Tree with Woodgrain cardstock.
 Falling Snow stencil & Merry Christmas die with Penny Blacks Fantasy Tree.

That's it for me for today lovely peeps, it's time I tackled this present and card mountain & another two parcels have arrived while I've been typing my post so I'm sat here looking at a very large box wondering what on earth I've bought because I can't remember lol.
