Merry Xmas!


We are having a wonderful time!

I made this card on Wednesday for a very good friend of ours. I love going to see them at this time of year, They have such great decorations! Mylee love it and so do we LOL :-)
The ribbon is from a...festive bottle of baileys, I knew I will be using it on my cards as soon as I spotted it when my DH brought it home! :-)

I wanted to wish everyone a Briliant. Happy New year, Hopping you are all having a magical time! Thank you for all of your beautiful comments X

A Thank You and A Private Swap!

About two weeks ego, I visited one of my SBS#26 blogs, and saw a Hanukkah card she said she had made for a friend...
About a week later I got an envelope in the post, and guess what? That card was for us!
I was very moved and I would like to share it with everyone :-)
Thank you so much Vickie! I love it! here it is here

And again, two weeks ego in an israeli Forum I saw the beautiful creations by another online friend; an Israelie that lives in Canada with her DH. Because I found out that both of our Families are celebrating both holidays (Thats what happens in mixed marriges LOL), I asked her if she would like to have a festive swap between us.
We descided on a tree decoration + something else plus a card of course!

I got mine a few days ego and, trust me when I say this, the pictures are great! But its so much prettyer in reall life! here
Thank you so much Mira! Love them all!

I am sorry I am not uploading them myself, but both blogs are great and you should see for yourself! (For the Hebrew one, there is always google translate! LOL)

Here is what I sent Mira, My Candeian/Israeli Friend:

A small wreath for the Xmas tree
































A small desk calender:




















I made two of this cards, but only took one picture LOL so here it is again :-)




















And this is Me and My wee Princess lighting Hanukkah lights on the First day of Hanukkah, As you can see she is not looking at the lights...LOL

Its Nearly Xmas!

And this year we are celebrating both Hanukkah and Xmas! We are at the third candle of Hanukkah today, and The princess received her third gift as well :-) I went upstairs to make sure I got it right and got her eight for Hanukkah and some more for Xmas. I can stop panicking now, we have enough! LOL

I normally buy Xmas cards, and only make them for really special people, I made this one for a special couple that have been really great friends to us for the last nine years.
I really enjoyed making it and will probably make another one for another friend of mine :-)

The first card is a Hanukkah card I made last week, I always struggle with them, In my mind the colour should always be in the Red/yellow/Orange range. I don`t tend to use this colours much on cards (if ever LOL). But I am pretty pleased with the outcome.

A Bashful Blue Story!






This is the first time I used nothing but SU!
I think this is my favorite stamp set, with its coordinating punch!

It was one of my friends B-Day last week, and I couldn't go to the party, as my face were a little bruised, but I did make her a lill something.

She has been asking me for ages to make her a set of 10 cards, and she said she would pay me for it as well. But I don`t like making them for sale, I like making them to give as pressies:-) So it`s not a set of 10, its a small folder that holds 3 cards and envelopes.

I found the tutorial for the folder and the pull out card in an old magazine I bought ages ego. and the tutorial is by the wonderful Jenny Moor, who is now my SU! up liner LOL so Thanks Jenny X



If you would like me to send you a catalogue or if you are interested in purchasing this set, please email meat a.g.mcintyre@talktalk.net and I will get back to you as soon as possible!
Thanks for stopping by! X
The pocket for the tag was made with this tutorial. I got the Idea when I was reading Stepanies` blog and asked her how its made so she emailed me the link to it for Marions` tutorial who said she got it from Twoworlds which is another amazingly Talented crafter!
So Thanks Stephanie, Happy Thanksgiving! and thanks to Marion as well :-) X
Oh and Stamp a ma jig RULES! lol

Bluberries Muffins



I have been in a baking mood all week, feeling a bit down and thought that that will make me feel better! Guess what? It did! LOL
I found the recipe on this blog
I didn`t have normal flour so I used self raising instead and without the baking powder. They turned out YUMMY! :-) So I thought I should take some photos, cos when they`re gone they`re gone!
I wanted to thank everyone for your kind words on me last post, I am doing fine now, Still a little bruised but all the pain is gone :-)
Thank You Again x

:-( Awo

My princes and I were making brownies on Wednesday, and I needed to let the oven warm up before I could put the mixture into the baking tray.
That is when I discovered that oven had stopped working. so I thought...`I`d leave the stool here because we will need it later`...wrong though that was...
I called my DH so that he can bring the table top oven from the in laws.
While he was trying to get that one to work, someone knocked on our door, as I was heading towards it, I stambled across the stool..

You know when you are falling and for a split second you think, I can walk this and not fall? well.. that's why I never put my arms and hands forward to stop it and hit the wall with my face with all my body weight :-( I was screaming in pain and bleeding as well. Then I realised that Mylee was there so I stopped. she was so lovely; she kept asking me if I was OK and offered me her watter cup.

The nurse thinks that I broke my nose and I have a specialist appointment on Monday morning.

Purse Swap

But before I tell you all about it, I would like you to meet my new attractive Laptop!
My princess had decided that my old one doesn't need to have any keys, so she took them all out! LOL
So my DH has bought me an early Birthday present (only about a month early).
The sales man asked me loads of question to see if I got the laptop that is ideal for me. DH just said to him:"Is it pink?" "then we will take that one!" LOLAnother swap, in an Israeli Forum.
A purse swap this time, which I really enjoyed making.
I saw the purse in Nina`s blog and followed the link to the tutorial from there.
I changed the sizes a little so that my mini album would fit in it. I t was a very snug fit.
Actually a note for next time (which will be this week, as someone saw it and ordered two!), purse needs to be slightly bigger.
Mini album and a card.
Paper piecing owls.

White swap

A group shot

The card

The mini Album. it was to big for my light box LOL
I just realised, I forgot to take a pic of it closed...



A few weeks ego I participated in a white swap that was part of "Shavuot" which is a Jewish holiday. Its the harvest holiday, and we celebrate it by eating allot of dairy products and wearing white cloths.

There is allot more to the holiday, but I wont go in to that :-)

So, my white swap, still did not reach its destination (It might be the royal mail that is taking its time).
The mini album was ALLOT of work, and if i ever decide to make another one it will be for myself, or I might have a SU! class tutorial.
I do love it though! LOL
Sorry about the quality of the photos..
Thanks for stopping by!
