Marvelous Magnolia - Two stamps or more

Happy Thursday Lunchtime

Well we are nearly there now, just the food shopping to do and then cook Christmas Lunch for 11 of us, quiet year this one as normally it is around 16 to 18. It is lovely having a large family, except I have one vegetarian, two celiacs and one muslim, so I need a veggie option main meal, sausage meat and chestnut stuffing, gluten free stuffing (also used for the none pork eater and veggie), roast potates with goose fat, roast potatoes in olive oil and some halal meat and don't start me on the puddings, all worth it though. 

So onto my card we have a new challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia and this week our theme is two or more stamps. 

I have made a card for my lovely sister-in-law Ruth and her hubbie Gareth, they are definately party people, they love going out and socialising. 
 Sorry to state the obvious but this is the back... LOL. 
Please drop over to Marvelous Magnolia and check out the stunning creations from my team mates - there are some stunners.

Your Computer is Broke - Phone Scam

I just wanted to share this with you as hopefully it might help someone

I was phoned this morning just as I was leaving for work by a company called Ceylon Technical Support who told me they worked for Microsoft and that Microsoft were trying to send me some updates and a programme on my computer was stopping them, and he could help me by connecting to my computer and sorting out all my problems. 

I work in IT, so I was the wrong person for them to speak to - I told them in no uncertain terms to go away and never phone me again. 

I looked them up on the internet and apparently it is the latest scam, they remotely access your computer, which they lock down, then tell you that you have a virus or a problem which they will fix at a high cost -

It make me furious as I can see so many people would be taken in with this - I also know that many of you are having problems with your computers at the moment and trust me this is not the answer. 

Never click on any link in any email, have up to date antivirus, say no to any toolbars you are offered whilst browsing (they slow down your computer) and if your computer is playing up, turn it off and restart, you would be amazed how this fixes most problems.

Another Christmas card and My Radiator

Hi everyone
This is the first post I have made in months which was not a DT card, I have so many family Christmas cards that I need to let you see some every day till New Year... LOL. 

So today I would like to show you a card I made for another Step-Son and his partner. The same LOTV image that I used on Sunday - I coloured loads on mass one weekend at the caravan. 

I made another of the folded cards - no idea what you call them and made a sort of scene with two new Marianne dies - the lamp post and the christmas tree, the fence I bought off ebay. 

mmm... I now notice that the little name sentiment is wonky... ah never mind. 

This is the reverse. 

So on to the title of my post - my good blogging friend PlanetSusie showed a lovely picture of her fireplace, and I promised her a picture of my radiator, don't get me wrong we do have a fireplace in the front lounge and also a stove in our main lounge but the radiator in the hall has a special place in my heart.  I think Sue thought I was joking...

A close up - and what is that card dangling down - well it is a beautiful card from Sue - thank you so much and there was a bar of chocolate with it too... wow. 

So there you go Sue - a picture of my radiator - do you like Father Christmas Teddy in the corner - I always feel that is Christmas when he comes out of his big box.

Electic Ellapu - Anything Goes

Good Morning Blogging Buddies

Well we are nearly there - I hope you are all ready or nearly ready - I just have wrapping to do and food shopping - yeah....

Today see the start of a new challenge over at Electic Ellapu and we are extending the challenge over the Christmas period and our challenge is Anything Goes - always very popular.  I had wanted to make a chocolate topiary tree after seeing another team mate do one on anothere challenge but time ran out so I have used one of my cards which has not been shown yet. 

It is a teepee card for my step-son and his partner, I have used a LOTV stamp, one of last years but new to me this year - as I loved the amount of fur on the girls coat and hat that I could add Glamour Dust to. 

This view shows one of the other sides.

This side use the large Marianne Christmas Tree which I have just bought, I used Diamond dust and some little gems on it - I also had to cut it down a little as it is so large - the snowflakes are Cheery Lynn which I bought when I visited LOTV last month.

This is the inside and shows how it was made with three squares scored down the middle - really easy and very effective. 

Hope you like my card and please drop over the to lovely Elaine at Electic Ellapu and the wonderful designs from my other team mates.

I would like to enter my card into

Lili's Little Fairies - Something New (two dies & the stamp)

Fashionista Challenge - Kenny K

Hi Everyone

A super quick post from me as like most ladies around at this time of year I very short of time and I lost a whole day on Saturday due to a gastro bug - a whole day in bed, something I never do, cannot remember the last time I was so ill. 

We have a new challenge over at Fashionista and I have two cards to share with you I made for my son and step son, they share a flat together so I thought twin cards would look cute - I hope they think so too.

As you can see they are matching stepper cards. 

Hope you like and please drop over to our Fashionista blog and see the other amazing creations from our DT. 

Hope you are all coping at the busy time of year and all of those of you who are under the weather I hope today sees an improvement.

Marvelous Magnolia - Tilda with Snowman - Shadow Box Card

Happy Thursday Lunchtime,

I am super busy at the moment so apologise if I have not visited you recently - things should start to slow down after this coming weekend. 

Today see's another challenge from Marvelous Magnolia and this week our theme this week is Snowflake - pretty easy one for this time of year. 

I decided to make a Shadow Box card for my niece. 

I used Tilda with Snowman and glittered with Glamour Dust on Tilda and Diamond Dust on Snowman.  There is also a large Marianne Christmas Tree and Tim Holtz snowflake die again with Diamond Dust - I love this stuff :). 

Snowflakes are Memory Box and Marianne, this time glittered with Glamour Dust.

This view shows the top of the card - these cards are a great idea as they fold flat for postage.

Eclectic Ellapu - Santa Paws & Snowflakes

Happy Sunday,

Today sees a new challenge over at Electic Ellapu and this week's theme is Santa Paws & Snowflakes.  I wanted to make a card for my good friend Pam - Pam loves my cocker spaniel, Rosie so what better than to make a doggy card.

The image is call 'It's only me' by Giordano and although it is not a traditional Christmas image I wanted to use it because it is so sweet. 
This card has been hard to photograph - the red flowers and and ribbon have been glittered with stickles, sentiment is embossed with gold and the small snowflakes cut out of glitter card. 

As you can see I made an easel card. 

This is the inside. 

Hope you have a great day today - it was our Christmas work's party last night so this post is scheduled - hope my head is ok as it is Christmas decoration day at our house, so I need my energy.

Please drop over the Electic Ellapu and see the amazing creations from my team mates.
