Christmas or Not!

Hello....Still no news on my house sale....the nasty couple that wanted to buy it have not got the funds....so I'm glad in one way but sad I can't go ahead with the house in Essex....

Today's card is one of two I made using Tim Holtz Snow globe.... If you have hand problems this is not for you as it got 23 dies and some are very tiny.....And did drive me mad.....

The first card 5x7 tent card but used on it side.....navy card from stash....snow globe as above....background paper LOTV.....the rest of the card and papers from the bit box....                                                                        The 2nd card again 5x7 brown card from stash background papers from LOTV....Dies from above.....I have not put the sentiment on as I'm not sure if I going to use it as a Christmas card....
Thank you all so much for your lovely comments Joolsx

Hello and news .....

Good Morning....Hope you all had a lovely weekend

I had two house viewings on Saturday....1st one was cash buyer but for investment....Said the price was to much....so why come and have a look in the first place!!!...I think it was just to see my cabin in my garden...The 2nd was a couple who when got into my house slipped away from each other I was with the woman and the guy went round opening and closing doors and windows and looking into all my cupboards....even got into my bath and turned on the shower made me very uncomfortable in my own home! Then put in a offer £20 thousand below the asking price..I did talk to the estate agent about them...

Since writing this the couple have come back with 8 thousand more....still not enough.....watch this space....

On to my card....which Ive made for a good friend of mine....As you can see I'm just loving the 5x7 tent card base....brown card Papermill ...all papers My Minds Eye.....Tim Holtz die.....butterfly which I cut twice....and flower Memory Box....feather was a freebie from a magazine some time ago....and a few gems...
Thank you all your comments Joolsx

Blissful pads

Good Morning....
Bit late posting today....last Friday was going to be the exchange date for my house sell....well it did not happen as one of the buyers (not mine) could not get the funds to buy my buyers house.....so my house is going back on the market and so is the house I thought I was moving to ....the Estate Agent has been giving me the run a round for the last 3 weeks and knew the guy could not get the funds....Time and monies all gone...I am gutted and upset....

So I've been in my craft room to take my mind off what has happen....onwards and upwards....As my granny would have told me!!...

Today's cards one for a friend and the other for a Buddys Birthday....Most of my crafty stash is been packed away.....so out came Anna Marie Blissful pads ....this time the Cocoa one....
 The one is 6x6 and I've just used paper which I've inked round the edges...mat and layered  and a few card candy.....

The 2nd one is a 5x7 tent card....which I inked the base card then mats and layered inked and cut the corners with a Tonic punch....flowers and leaves Memory Box and a few gems....

Thank you all for your lovely comments on this and my other uploads...fingers crossed I find a new buyer some....Joolsx
