Christmas menu

Last week my mother asked me to create menus for Christmas evening. Because I have little time lately, I said I wanted to do this if she helped me. I've tried to convince her to start cardmaking many times, but this was the first time she agreed to it. We had a long discussion before we found the right concept. Because our table decoration is mainly black we chose this dark colour combo. The background is made with a cuttlebug embossing folder, then lightly inked and finally some painting with stickles. This glittering is not obvious in the picture, but it's really nice in reality :)

Hi there,

As the end of the year is coming closer, I seem to have even less time for crafting. But that doesn't mean I don't think of it. I bought some great new stuff lately and I thought I'd share this with you.

First I spend my birthday money in a great stamping shop in Belgium(http://blog.chriscoudenys.be). It was my first time there and I was amazed how many stamps you can get in such a small place. The shop owner was a very nice lady and gave us lots of tips. It was not easy to choose, but this is what I brought home.

Secondly I went to Pipoos (http://www.pipoos.be/) as I read in their newsletter the loyalty card are worth extra now.

On top of this the Martha Stewart punches were in reduction, which made I only had to pay 6€ for all of this :)

And last but not least I went to Boekenfestijn (http://www.boekenfestijn.com/) last Thursday. I love reading thrillers and I came home with about 10 new books. But a lovely extra is that they also have hobby materials. A difficult choice and I already regret I didn't buy some other stamps, but my budget is limited. And you can't buy everthing, even if it's really cheap.

Birthday Cards

On December 1st I celebrated my birthday. Because 30 is pretty special, we went 4 days to the Christmas market in Germany. I really had a great time with lots of shopping, gluwein and also some cultural activities.
From some members of a stamping group I received these beautiful cards. Thanks a lot Linda, Bea, Christine and Monique!
