Cath Kidston Bag complete with cat!!

I came in from my last day of training - which I passed by the way!! I am now a fully qualified nail technician! I put my bag down on the dining room chair and Tilly moved in!! She has always had a thing about bags and used to sit with her brother in my handbag when they were kittens!!

Hope you have a great day!

Black and silver foil nails

Got a bit adventurous today and managed to do my own nails at last!! It is SO hard to do your right hand with your left when you are right handed!!! I decided to paint them black and then put silver foiling on the top. I quite like them for a change.

Hope you have a great day!

Seeing Dawn Wheeler's gorgeous creations in Papercraft Essentials I thought I would make a start on some christmas cards. She inspired me to have a go, thanks Dawn!

This one is PP papers and the cute Whipper Snapper penguin. The wording is computer generated. The border is created with the threading water punch.

A black cat, a red devil and a pirate!

My eldest daughter took Laura and the kids trick or treating last night. It was manic trying to get them to stand still to take photos so I only managed 2 that are any good. Laura and Liam and Liam and Ryan - love this one it looks as if Liam is saying to his big brother - "ssshhh, it's my turn"!!!

Hope you have a great day - I get to pick my new car up this afternoon and am so excited - it seems like I have been waiting ages since ordering it but it is only about 5 weeks and that includes the plate transfer so it's not bad really but I am so impatient!!
I will share pics later!
