Beat the Christmas Rush October 25th

Christmas Card Tally 50

Well I warned you that the Christmas card season would be upon us before we can turn round … and here it is! If you joined BtCR in January you now have a tidy stash of cards all ready and waiting while all around you cardmakers are beginning their annual panic. He he!

Another Pinterest find from me this month – how did we manage without its inspiration? I made the snowmen with various cuts on my Cricut – so cute!

Thank you to all those who linked up their fab cards last month. My favourite entry was this gorgeous set by Susibee, so classy!

The small print … please only link new cards. Up to 5 links allowed per person per month. Mention my blog in your post(s).  It’s not necessary, but I’ll be thrilled if you join my blog as a follower. If you miss a month it doesn't matter, come back next month … or the month after.

October sketch challenge

Well we really can’t moan about the weather this year, can we? October is here and it’s still warm enough to be in the garden. We’ve picked our grapes today, three weeks early and a bumper harvest! I’m certainly not ready for autumn scrapping yet and am finishing up some of my summer photos. So on to this month’s challenge …

Just Jugglin'


… just use the sketch as the starting point for your scrapbook page then link me up to your blog, gallery or FB page, via the linky thingy below. Please be sure to link to my challenge in your post or gallery text box. I’ll choose my favourite and send the winner one of my crop kits you can see them on the page tab at the top of my blog.

There were some gorgeous entries for last month’s challenge and I really was spoilt for choice. I’d like to give a special mention to Susi and to Elaine whose pages I absolutely love. My favourite though is this stunning page by Sarah.


Sarah does bling and flowers to perfection – very much her scrapping signature and one I envy.

Sarah – please have a look at the kits on the page tab above and choose one for your prize then email your address to sue at suehr dot fsnet dot co dot uk


The small print … please only link new layouts. You must mention my blog in your post(s) and link to the challenge.  It’s not necessary, but I’ll be delighted if you join my blog as a follower.
