It's beginning to look a LOT like Christmas!

Hi folks, sorry I'm late with my post, but as they say, better late than never :-/
Challenge #197 at THE CRAFTY PAD has been chosen by our Rachel, and her fab choice is
I'm sure there'll be no shortage of entries for this one, especially as we have a fab prize courtesy of Ali at
with this wonderful prize:
Christmas is always a big family get-together for us, so this week I decided to use some of Debbie's lovely seasonal images to make some placecard settings for the big day.
For the children's place cards I used images from the Elf Tags.
For the adult's place cards I used the Christmas Baubles Sets which are available in 3 sets (each with 2 colours.)
The other DT girlies from Team B have some great makes, so don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and leave them some love.
Thanks for popping in.

Anything Goes!

Morning everyone, and welcome to another Sunday. Over at
this week we have an
challenge for you! Yes folks, #195 is your choice.
Our sponsor this week is the lovely Lorraine, owner of
with a £10 voucher to spend in her online shop.
This week I've used two Crafty Pad Designs images, snowgloge (precoloured) and one of the Merry Christmas sentiments. I have a quickie-make to share with you, it's a ribbon bookmark.
It's so quick and easy to make! I printed the snowglobe onto thick card and cut it out. I altered the colour of the sentiment to match and printed onto thick card once again and cut it out. To join them, I chose a wide red satin ribbon, a christmas print ribbon and some green ric rac.
How does it work? See below!
Simply place onto he page you want to save...
...and close the saved!
If you are giving a book to anyone as a gift, these make a wonderful addition, as they can be personalised to suit the theme of the book or the person you're making for.
We really hope you will join us this week, and are confident you will as its an Anything Goes week. Please note that we are setting a limit of 3 entries per person, or we'll be so busy commenting our children won't get fed!!!!! Pmsl!!
See you soon.
