Thank You!

Happy Christmas from all at My Mum's Craft Shop!

Well, I'm a little jaded with making Christmas cards right now, but my fingers were itching and I needed to make something!

So, what comes after Christmas? Yes, I know a diet, but I was thinking more along the lines of a mountain of Thank you cards! And what better way to use up a few more of those leftover Christmas papers? I've used Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas.

This little fairy is, of course, Faye with Flower from Wild Rose Studio. She looks lovely with glittery wings and lashing of pink. If only I could get away with wearing this get up every day...!

Well, it's short and sweet from me today, I'm sure you understand! I have a mahoosive pile of sausage rolls, mince pies, Quality Street and Cheese and Pineapple sticks to work my way through.

Have a wonderful festive season, I hope Santa fills your stocking with lots of crafty stash. :)

Is it spring yet?

Can I first take this opportunity to say a big hello to eveyone.  I am Trudie and I am new to MMCS design team.  This is my first card for this blog so please be kind!  To say I was nervous is an understatement but thrilled to be asked at the same time.

Anyway, if you are anything like me you would've been making christmas cards for what seems like forever by now.  I really needed a change and when I saw the beautiful Dreamcatcher paper pad from First Edition, I knew I just had to have it.  I teamed the papers with my favourite Simply Sassy stamp, Hippy Chick and used labels number 4 from Spellbinders Nestabilities.   I also used  a butterfly die from Marianne Designs.   I decided to keep this fairly simple with it being number 1 and just finished the card of with some pink ribbon from my stash and a small collection of flowers.

I hope you all have a wonderful christmas and a very happy new year.

See you soon

Happy Scrimbo!

Well hello!

Now, don't get too excited, I know this looks like a Christmas card, but it's not. I know I've used these delish Season's Greetings Papers by Echo Park (You can get them in a 6x6 pad or a 12x12 Collection Pack with sticker sheets, which come in handy for any last minute cards you may need to whip up on Christmas Eve!!) but this is not a Christmas card.

The cutesome little (not Christmas) fairy is Nellie Snellen Sweet Eline - Flying Frog. You'll obviously notice that I've not included the frog, as I wanted to make something non (Christmassy/ ) froggy! But if you did want to make something Christmassy, there are quite a few stamp in the Nellie Snellen range that would make it very easy for you.

So, although this looks like a Christmas card, it's not. It's a fairy card, which, just happens to have a traditional colour scheme. There. Denial intact.

See you next week...

Starboy Luca

Yep, it's December! So, I thought I'd make a little something to continue my complete denial about how close we really are to Christmas now!

I've used Starboy Luca from La La Land Crafts, he has to be one of my favourites. As a little nod to the thing that we're not really talking about, I pulled some fab star paper from my Holly Jolly Christmas Paper Pad from Echo Park. The Star Border is by Die-Namics.

Well that's all from me today. But before I go, have you noticed that Kitty has started stocking the FABEROONY dies from Memory Box? These things shift like hot cakes (or mince pies in a grotto!) so best go take a looksee...!
