Remember Remember the 5th November and our monthly Giveaway :-) ......

November Giveaway at My Creative Spirit christmas Lantern Graphic 45
Evening everyone, I hope you're weeks gone well.  I'm back up country from Cornwall and the rain seems to have followed me.  We tripped out to see Spectre (James Bond) at the pictures last night with Nanny. I know there have been mixed reviews about the film but we really enjoyed it.  Daniel Craig was fab,  the cars were fast and furious of course and amazing special effects kept up all on our toes lol!!! well nearly. 

We're in the throws of Bonfire (Guy Fawkes) night and firework displays here in the UK with bangs and whizzes going off every where.  I love this time of year. 
Remember Remember the 5th November
Gunpowder, treason and plot 
We see no reason 
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot

  and so it goes on .........................
It's going to be a wet one for everyone coming along to the firework display at the castle here in the town tomorrow eve.  Roads shut about 5pm and thousands of people come along to see the amazing display put on by the Round Table. If you're off to an event where you live have loads of fun.

  23. Morning Clare, This lantern is amazing !!!! I would love to win this creation.
    To be honest, as an animal owner, my cat Lizzie is petrified when all the bangs of the fireworks go off, so I always 'dread' this time of the year, it takes her hours and hours after they have stopped before she dares to emerge. I shut all the windows and have every tv on up high in the house, but she can still hear them, I feel so very sorry for any animal because they don't know what is happening. I know that the organised events are fabulous to watch but I wish fireworks were only sold to organised events. On behalf of the animal community, I've got down off my 'soapbox' now hahaha.
    Enjoy your day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

What a week!

Happy Friday everyone
If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!   
I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-) 

As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.

The first tag was inked lightly all over wi…

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall section that h…
