Challenge No. 2 completed


It's Sunday afternoon and I've spent the day wrapping presents and writing cards and now am feeling very festive indeed.  I still have plenty of shopping left to do but feel as if I'm almost there!  
Well it's time for me to post Challenge No. 2 and hope that you like it.
The  layout was as JK Cards on Wednesday........
Enjoyed doing this one and will probably use this layout on other cards too.  
I love using the neutral colours with the Cherry Cobbler, just love them together.

Right, I had better go and get the Sunday roast started now, so hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and speak to you again soon.

Feeling Festive

I just wanted to share with you a picture that I have just taken of some decorations in my hall.  I had just been sitting at the piano trying to play some Christmas carols but just couldn't remember all the notes.  As I walked away the view of the piano with the lighting and the deccies just made me feel all festive.  Hope you can see what I mean.
I'm going to go and get on with the Christmas cards now and hopefully wrap a few presents before I go off to bed.  Good job only comes around once a year eh?!
Enjoy your evening everyone.

Welcome to Twinks Stamping

Welcome to Twinks Stamping.  You are looking at my very first attempt at blogging!
I am an Independent Demonstrator with Stampin' Up and belong to a lovely team here in East Sussex.
When we had our last team meeting it was suggested that to keep us motivated we participated in a "challenge" each week.
So.... below is my attempt at our first challenge.   What do you think girls?
I'm glad I managed to get this finished today after having such a busy weekend and I'm now looking forward to the next challenge!

I hope that my photography skills improve with practice too!

Right, I had better get started on the Christmas cards now.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
