Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Only 3 more sleeps to the Jolly Fat Man arrives, so I guess it really is almost Christmas and it looks like its going to be a white one. There does not seem to be any let up in the weather, but no matter, I am organised and ready for the big bring it on.

Here is a pic of a card I made for some friends and some gifts I made for other friends, its good to have so many friends:).

Rudolph Gift Bags

These are some of the Rudolph gift bags I have made to give to the girls on Tuesday night, how cute are these...I love them...I had great fun making these. May need to do some for the house, just in case any kids come visiting and even if they dont they will look cute next to my snowman soup etc....

Clean and Simple Christmas Card

I made this card using one of the beautiful stampin up sets I bought as part of the Stampers 10 group. I thought I would start with a clean and simple card and see how I can build on it, using the same watch this space :)

Girls Brigade Fundraising Concert

I have had fun the last few weeks making things for the Girls Brigade fundraising concert, we always have a craft table in the halls, so the people at the concert can browse while having their coffee and mince pies. So this year we had some old favourites and some new things. I am pleased to say that I only had to bring a couple of snowman soups home again.

A first for me this year was Burden Bears, these are little bears with their own little quilt and their own little card, which contains a verse telling you why they have come to live with you.

Burden Bear Verse

I'm not a very fancy bear,
I'm plain and rather small.
Even so, someone who loves you
Said I should come to call.

I brought my favourite blanket,
That I snuggle when I'm sad...
It's a present from my Granny,
Made for days when things seem bad.

My Granny always told me,
"Life's like a patchwork quilt...
Just give Jesus all the pieces,
And he'll make a pretty quilt."

Sometimes I don't see the pattern,
Sometimes he seems far away,
Then I clutch my favourite blanket
And I pray...and pray...and pray.

Though I don't have all the answers,
For I'm just a "Burden Bear"
I've been sent here on a mission
From someone who really cares.
So when you see me, please remember...
You are in their thoughts and prayers.

Notepad holders (Thanks Paula)

Pillow Boxes (Well some of them anyway)


I also did more candles, snowman soup, snowman poop and Rudolph candy canes. I did enjoy it, but I am now looking forward to a little break from it all.
