Christmas Cheer

I thought I would show you my Christmas cards this year... well one of them. Mostly this is going to family and friends. Then there will be a few different ones for crafty friends.

Cardstock is Cherry Cobbler co-ordinations and ink because I didn't have any white embossing powder (since fixed) I sponged the colour on.  The Embossing folder is soo sweet Northern Flurry (120902). The Stamp set is out of the Holiday Catalogue Ornament Keepsakes (128051) add some twine and some Dazzling diamonds...

Thanks for looking

How time flies...

How time flies, right!
I do have good news... After many issues and lots problems I have a new job!!! I tell you working for the Department of Education is not easy when you need to change your school! However I have made it through so lets hope I don't have to do it again too soon. It def feels strange to have to leave a job and have to  your boss refer you and help you find another job! Not that I have had this happen before but my understanding of working life is that you do your job well you get to stay! Integration Aides don't work that way... too many kids move to High School then last in have to go.  BUT I have another job that is really cool, it works well with my kids and me. More hours than I would of liked but less than now, I don't need before/after school care. I'm very excited about the move!

I have been crafting a little bit so the first card I have is not actually a card:

I made this reward chart for a little friend at school.  As crazy as it sounds I draw the Australia and neighbouring countries!! Mad I know. Once my mate gets 10 stars for good work then he gets a reward!

It is hard to see but the moon has craters! It was soo much fun to make!

Lucky last card for tonight... This little guy is soo cute. I coloured him with Copics so I mounted him white on white for a little bi of class and I hated the thought that you could see the coloring on the back.

Thanks for looking and Happy sweet 18th Birthday to my beautiful niece/cousin. Yes, I was about 21 when she was born so my Uncle has her call me Aunty. I think he is just trying to get at me and make me feel old but I have soo many nieces/nephews his evil plan failed!! LOL  Either that make himself feel young :D
