To be eligible for my Handmade Daisies prize pack you need to complete a card for each week - hence - 12 cards.
How are you going with them?
I know Vicky is going well.
Don't forget to pop back and let me know.
Here is my card for this week.
Sometime ago this year I created the pink/green combo cupcake card and thought I'd use the same idea to create a Christmas Cupcake card. There's nothing wrong with being inspired by your own work to create something similar.
So there you go - come on - how are those Christmas cards going?????????????

Just wanted to show you some quick and easy cards that I have made over the last year. Thought this may help get you enthused about making your own Christmas Cards.
I was especially pleased how the first card turned out – I just used a cheap candy cane from the $2 Shop for the “J”.
I was also happy how the orange/earthy cards turned out – these were published in Creative Paper Magazine last Christmas. These cards also came together really quickly.
If you are inspired by any of these cards – let me know and share your creation with everyone by commenting to this post with a link to your blog.

If you do - pop in to this post and leave me a link to a sketch that you like, maybe its a sketch that you have made up yourself.
Come on - let's get a little challenge happening for all to share in.
How about you? Take it from me - DON'T leave it to the last minute. The shopping centres are starting to get rather busy and there's nothing worse than hunting for presents at the last minute.
Make a list - get yourself organised and GOOD LUCK!!!!
I usually make them all different but I'm thinking this year I may just go with a couple of designs.
Running out of time.
Must pop my "12 Weeks Of Christmas" cards up on my blog too - been slack.

Which means I am now free of driving and it also means that I can start riding to and from school with Josh. He has been asking me for a while if he could ride to school but it's just safe enough. So we headed off on our bikes this morning which just so happened to run in conjuction with "Ride To School Day"......too funny. I must say that it was a bit of a shock for me - to and from school in the morning and then to and from school in the afternoon. I am going to be fit before you know it. It also suits me as I still can't walk with my shin splints and "bung" knees so hopefully all of this will help.
There you are. Just a bit of trivia in the Downey household.........LOL.
As it is summer in Australia in December, when it comes to making your Christmas cards do you include such things as snow flakes and snowmen?
I used to but now I tend not to. If anything it is the absolute opposite to snow. It's gunna be a stinker here tomorrow. Not looking forward to it.
I have a feeling that it may be bikini's for Christmas Day - now that's not a nice thought. LOL!!!!
One day I hope to celebrate a white chrismtas.

Here are the rules of this award
Not only is it Remembrance Day it is also Josh's 11th Birthday.
So 11 years ago on the 11th day of the 11th month - NOT at the 11th hour but even so - I was bringing our little boy into the world. I do remember stopping in the middle of contractions to have one minutes silence to remember the soldiers in the First World War.
Happy Birthday to our little man.
Hope you have the bestest day.

I am going on Saturday if anyone would like to catch up for a cuppa.
Just let me know.
(Just adding - found the show to be good. It was stinking hot in there - you could really wear a bikini.............LOL. Bought a few bits and pieces but not too much damage done. Caught up with a few people and spotted my Handmade Daisies at the Craft Queen Stall.....yay!!!!)

I was lucky enough to use some extra yummy colours and goodies to create some Christmas Cards for Nicole at Craft Queen.
These cards are sold in a kit form. If you get a chance pop on over have a look at the pack – it also comes with the gorgeous bauble stamp and while you’re there, see what's new at Craft Queen. Plenty of bargains to be had that is for sure.
Nicole will also be at Melbourne Paperific next week. You HAVE to go and check out her stand it is ALWAYS gorgeous. I usually just stand and stare at all the beautiful ribbons. My Handmade Daisies will also be for sale too which is rather exciting.
If you would like to have a chance to win some of my Handmade Daisies all you need to do is look at this post
Make a card or 2 and leave a comment with a link to your NEW creation.
You have until midnight 6th November to complete your task.

Sean thought it was a bit predictable in places - although I am a born romantic and usually just sit and get absorbed in a film rather than trying to nut it out.
