Christmas Up-Date and Crafty Boots Challenge: Celebrations!

Hi guys! Did you have a fab Christmas?! I certainly did! Probably one of the best ones ever! It was completely relaxing! We hosted a Christmas party for our friends on the 23rd December - a really fun fancy dress party!! Here's a pic of me and my hubby! I dressed up as one of Santas elfs and my hubby originally planned to be the Grinch, but ended up being the hulk at Christmas!!:

On Christmas day i was very excited to see that Santa had been and i recieved lots of lovely presents, including lots and lots of sweets and chocolate!!:

We spent lots of time with family and Santa even stopped by to give us some more gifts!!

All in all , a perfect Christmas!!! Hope you guys had a fab one too!!

Now, back to the crafting: with all the fun of Christmas i had a very brief crafting break - but now i'm back! And back with the last Crafty Boots Challenge of 2011. So make sure you get involved! The last theme of this year is 'Celebrations'. Here's my DT entry:

This card has been made using new 'In Colours' - 'Wisteria Wonder' and 'Calypso coral', as well as a little bit of 'Whisper White' cardstock' and some 'Daffodil Delight DSP'. The sentiment is from the 'Happiest Birthday Wishes' stampset. I have used my 'Big Shot' and the 'Perfect Pennants Die', as well as the '1-3/4" Circle Punch' to create this card. As well as a brand new punch that will be released very early in the New Year!!

As i have used Strippy 'DSP' on this design i thought i'd enter it into the 'Daring CardMakers Challenge' - it's been a while since i entered any cards into any challenges and it is most definately a new years resolution of mine to get more involved!

Thats right! 2012 sees the launch of a new catalogue and the annual Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration promotion that occurs every year!! There will be some fab incentives for joining up as a demonstrator during this time too, so if you're interested in joining the team drop me an email:

Also if you live in the UK and don't currently have a Stampin' Up! seller and would like me to post a copy of the new mini catologue and sale-a-bration leaflet email me your address and i'll pop them in the post! Email:
