I've not really had any time for crafting as there's so much else to do - I just wanted to wish all my readers and anyone else who comes across my blog a Very Merry Christmas and a very peaceful and healthy New Year.

The thing about waking up early - before anyone else is about - is that I seem to get some time to craft and my mojo kicks in. I love being up early when its dark outside and I have the Christmas lights on inside - something very peaceful and magical about it all.
So I managed to get a Skinny done - I've been wanting to do one for ages to support Carole's challenge blog - this week the theme is Party so I've chosen Party Animal. I'm not one by the way! LOL! Couldn't you just cuddle this bear though!
I've used twinkling H2O's - not sure they show up very well though. Tim Holtz distress inks for the background again.
I found a new challenge blog thanks to Julie of Scrapping Away as she is their Guest Designer this week. The theme is Tags. You'll find it here
I used Cherry Pie Stamps to create my Tag Oh Christmas Tree. Oops - not very straight is it? The inks were Tim Holtz distress inks.

The last challenge of the year for InchybyInch is now up and running. We will start again in 2009 with a Guest Designer.
If you've been meaning to have a go at Inchys now's your last chance for 2008. They don't take long - honestly.
This week's theme is GIFTS:

This Yule card is for a special forum friend of mine who gives me inspiration in her art, she picks me up when she knows I'm down, and she offers support from afar - and I've never even met her. I hope she likes it.
All stamps - Cherry Pie - apart from the swirls in the background which is actually the lower half of the Father Christmas stamp I used a few postings ago. The inks are Tim Holtz distress inks.

I've been spending some time tidying up my craft room - mainly cause I could hardly move for bits of paper and ribbon and there was hardly any space left on my table - only about enough to make an inchy!
It always looks so inviting when its all tidy and I know where everything is and I find it is a great motivator. I even found a Cherry Pie stamp I haven't used yet - so I sat down and made a non Christmas card!

Wow - time goes quickly when Christmas is around the corner - I've been busy doing a few craft fairs with Stampin Up and making Christmas cards till they're coming out of my ears!
Thought I'd make something a bit different though and I made a Christmas door hanger for the kids to hang outside their doors or maybe me!!! LOL! This is the front:
This is the reverse:
