Christmas window and a bonus butterfly

Craft packages ordered =0, craft packages received =0

So my last day in the office this year has been successfully completed and I am now able to dedicated myself 100% to Christmas. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ This morning Mr Beez and myself had a big supermarket shop which, hopefully, means there will only be a few top up shops to do. Another major task this morning was to get all the parcels in the post, now I just need to persuade Mr Beez to sign the cards and they can be dispatched. It all seems a bit too calm – I must have forgotten something somewhere along the line!

I have two projects to share with you this morning and the first one isn’t my own, but is the work of my lovely friend Dionne who has so loyally shared and supported my mission to raise awareness of Cockayne Syndrome through the work of Amy and Friends. I should have shared this yesterday but I think you’ll agree that this was worth the wait:White_Wreath

I love the white wreath with the tiny, red, glittery butterfly and the bow adds an elegant touch. Please do buzz over to Dionne’s blog for all the details and I know she’d love it if you could take the time to leave a comment.

I also have a Christmas card to share with you and once again have used some papers and images from The Gecko Galz.


I don’t think it’s terribly clear from the photograph but this is actually a shaker card. The window is dimensional and has a layer of acetate so I could add some frosty white glitter behind it.


I’ve decoupaged the little boy and some of the holly.


I’ve used some beautiful cream ribbon and a coordinating button across the bottom and added a bow in the top corner.


I’m sharing this over at Papercraft Star for their latest and, very sadly, final challenge. I’m SO sorry to see them go and will miss their challenges with inspirational photo’s and design team projects. Thank you Jan, Anitra, Ros, Deanne and Sue I will miss you.

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. Many thanks for the ‘shout out’ Ms B, it is very appreciated.

    I love your card, I cannot remember the last time I saw a shaker card and it is great to so such a lovely one. I think we need a campaign to remind everyone about shaker cards, Christmas needs glitter!

    • So sorry it was late – I will be very honest I had completely forgotten! I don’t know if you saw the post on Facebook but Jayne Hughes (the mum of Amy)asked me to pass on thanks to “this lovely lady.” You’re right about shaker cards and yet they are always selling the tape on C & C. xx

    • Thank you Margaret – it’s very difficult to photograph a shaker card in action, I tried but it didn’t work however, it was fun attempting it!!!!!

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
