Christmas has come early... almost :D

Hurray! My MAC haul has arrived... but sadly I only get a brief look (and a few photo's) before they are swiftly taken away and hidden for Christmas. Some of this is from the winter Ice Parade holiday collection including the Sultry Eyeshadow Palette, Cool Iced Delights Lip Bag, Gold Pearl Iced Delights Eye Bag (the pigmentation of the eyeshadows are gorgeous!), Coral collection Dazzlesphere (4 mini lipglosses) and Piant Pot in Let's Skate.

I could have easily chosen more but my budget wouldn't allow for more this year but I am delighted with what we did get. Now I need to fine tune my present hunting skills :D

 33 Days to go until the big day!

More cardmaking candy!

I think I may have the bug for card making and have received some more card making goodies today via our lovely postie.

My last bundle of goodies had mainly card stock and diecuts which makes a great starting point for my card making to begin but this little lot is the fun stuff, embellishments, bows, buttons, tags, letter stamps and beautiful papers.

I'm looking forward to having a play with all these beautiful goodies!

Christmas card making haul :D

Christmas is soon upon us and tis the season to get crafting. I have decided to give card making a go as you can be as creative as you like and there is no wrong way to do it (unlike baking !).

My craft order has arrived this morning and I feel quite overwhelmed and excited with all the goodies received, lots of cards, envelopes, papers, diecuts, 3d papers, chipboard embellishments, paper embellishments, card sets and other bit's I'm not sure what to do with yet.

Now I need a little bit of know-how and lots of inspiration to make some beautiful cards :D
