Thankful For Cuddles

Evening peeps

I had a days holiday yesterday because of an appointment for a MRI scan on my spine, unfortunately, after waiting weeks for it, it then got cancelled at the last minute.  Now got to wait until 21st December, right on top of Christmas, so of course, I won't get the results until after the New Year.  Nothing is ever straight forward.


Anyway, I have gone with a cute and cuddly card tonight.  The digital stamp is called Izzy With Pony from Di's Digi Stamps and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock

My Arctic Fox

Evening peeps

Such a shame, today I have had to turn down a job offer.  It was a fast track management position, but unfortunately to start with, they could only offer 30 hours a week on minimum wage and there was no set time scale for moving up to management.  After doing all my sums, I would have lost about £200 a month.  On the plus side, which is what I need to think of, it was my first interview in 10 years, so to be offered the job is amazing.


Anyway, onto tonight's card.  The digital stamp is from Polkadoodles and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Double sided adhesive sheet
Martha Stewart Snowflake stamp set
Wow white embossing powder
Memento Grape Jelly ink pad
Memento Lulu Lavender ink pad
Die'sire Snow Is Falling die set
Pearl snowflake
White pearls
Crystal Glamour Dust glitter

Christmas Elf

Afternoon peeps

I can't believe I Landlord, the whole road is badly in need of new windows and door but instead of replacing them, they are being painted again, that's not going to stop the heat from escaping through them.  They always seem to decided to do these jobs in winter as well, having to leave windows and doors open is not much fun.


Anyway, I have tried to keep myself busy by doing a bit of crafting.  The digital stamp is called Winter Elf from Scrapper's Delight and it has been coloured using Copics and Promarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Blue card stock
Digital patterned paper
Double sided adhesive sheet
Die'sire Snow Is Falling die set
Snowflake pearl
Blue pearls
Crystal Glamour Dust glitter
