Christmas Crafting, thank you cards & more.....

Today I decided to have a little bit of craft time. I have been wanting to make a count down to christmas for ages after I made one a couple years back.
I have used Lili of the Valley stamp, SU papers, Crafty Sentiments tag die for numbers & coloured the bear with watercolours.



Last week I also made these sweet yet simple christmas cards ready...aren't I organised!!!
Again its a LOTV stamp coloured with watercolours. The sentiment is SU & I added some pearls to finish them off.


It was my father in law's 70th yesterday so I used the old dude from Make it Crafty's flirty seniors digi stamp & coloured it with promarkers.
The doggy is a daisy & dandelion stamp & is for a friend's birthday. I coloured it with watercolours.


I figure I may need a few thank you cards so I've made some using my 12x12 Pepper & Friends papers.
There's these simple ones & then some more fancy bigger ones.


Then there's special ones. I have made the decoupage up myself cutting out the 12x12 papers


Lastly here's my baby shower pages for my baby book I am making.



I've enjoyed doing some crafting & it keeps me busy without getting too tired while I wait for baby to come!!!

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁
