So I've been very very slack

Good evening everyone

Before I get started I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year (thought I'd get in early with that one) and sorry it's a late one.

I have been so busy at work it's been unbelievable and I can't believe Christmas has already been and gone in a blink of an eye. Lucky for me I've had a long but good roster this week so I thought it was about time I updated me blog and my commenting for my DT commitments for both One Stop Craft Challenges and The Emerald Faeires, thankfully we are taking a little break which has given the opportunity to do this without being too late.

For all of you who have entered the last couple of challenges which I didn't have time to comment on I'm terribly sorry for that.

As a lot of my friends now I work in a Caravan Park on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales in a beautiful beach side town called Forster. So as you can imagine this is the busiest time of the year for us and with a park that has almost 60 cabins, ensuite, powered and unpowered sites and also 100acres of natural bushland camping it keeps us all pretty busy.

So tonight I will just be quickly adding the cards I have created for the last couple of challenges at One Stop Craft Challenges. This is something that I wouldn't usually do but time is of a short supply as I'm very tired and still have commitments to keep up with.

So firstly here is my card for the Distress Challenge at One Stop Craft Challenges

On this card I've actually used one of my own Cremen Creations epoxy domes for something a little different.

The products I have used are

Fred She Said digital image (already coloured)
Bearly Mine Digital papers
Bakers Twine
MFT and Spellbinder Dies
WOC flowers
Pearl trim
Holly berries

The next card is to use A Christmas Carol as your inspiration - mines pretty obvious.

The Products I have used are

Prairie Fairy digital image
Kaiser pp's and title
Flowers from Scrapsidaisy
Liquid Aplique white
Memory Box dies
Kinday Glitz

The Copics I've used are

Well again I hope everyone had a wonderful Christamas and I will be back hopefully tomorrow to upload another card I've been working on for a competition being held over at the Spellbinders blog. Unfortunately the finalist have already been selected and I didn't make it but is one of the best cards I've ever created so I would like to share it with you but atm I've got other things I need to attend to before bed.

Nighty Nite everyone.

"Christmas" challenge at The Emerald Faeries

Well it's that time of the year again and boy has it come around way too quickly. So everywhere you go and everything you see is all about Christmas, and so our challenge this week at The Emerald Faeries is "Christmas".

I have done a very simple card but it looks really effective, well so I think anyway. As we've been really busy at work getting ready for Christmas in the park I haven't had much get up and go after work or on my days off, so quick and simple was all I could manage.

So here it is

The products I've used are

Bazzill & SU cs
Kaiser bling
Ranger Stickles
Fiskars border punch
Embossing folder
Robin's Nest dew drops

I was very excited yesterday when my Dew Drops arrived as I was really looking forward to trying a new product like always and they ended up working out great.

Unfortunately I have not yet taken a photo of the Copics I've use but they where

R29, 27, 24 & 22
G16, 05 & 02
E000, 00 & 02

I hope to see everyone's entries in this weeks challenge, and as always looking at how they are all very different.

Have a great week.

"Christmas For the Boys" over at One Stop Craft Challenges

Good morning everyone

Well I'm trying very hard this week to stay on top of everything as I have a lot going on. Working really hard as is everyone where I work trying to get the Caravan Park looking beautiful prior to the made Christmas rush. Have also be clearing out some of my old or excess scrapbooking stuff, which means invoicing and packing up orders as I've also had some of my Cremen Creations items for sale on Facebook as well.

So onto my latest creation for One Stop Craft Challenge and this one was a fun one to do, I always like creating a Christmas card for my hubby and thought this image from Bugaboo Digital Stamps who are our sponsors this week.

As usual we had an awesome amount of entries for last weeks challenge and everyone's work was amazing so thank you for joining in all the fun and congratulations to Melissa Sunshine Honeybee.

So onto my card for this week's "Christmas For The Boys" challenge.

I had a lot of fun creating this card and I like how it's a nice simple card, I think you can't really go to fussy when it is for a man.

So the products I have used for this one are

Bazzill cs
Cuttlebug embossing folder
My Favourite Things banner die
pp's from my scrap stash

The copics I have used are

So I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with this week, and as we all know it's less than a month till Christmas. I hope everyone is ready for it, me so disorganised this year, tree's not up yet, I've bought hardly any Christmas presents and I haven't even finish making my Chrissy cards to send out, Oops.

So this card I would like to enter into the following challenges

Catch The Bug Challenge - "Anything Goes"
Simon Says Stamp - "Anything Goes"

Hope everyone has a good week and I'll see you at the blog.

Take Care
