Oh No another Purple Christmas card LOL, a little family fun and Mad for Markers Copic School

Hi all, Continuing our 'non traditional Copic Colouring Christmas Creatlion' over at Mad for Markers I have used this cutie Magnolia snowman to create another purple Christmas card.  Added kindyglitz to him and the snowflake paper.  Part ribbon bow, (sorry photo not to clever, this ribbon is a gorgeous purple with sparkly purple trim edging) added purple rhinestones.  I just had to use my Tim Holtz on the edge snow flurries on glitter card again.

A close up to show some of the sparkle

Personal Stuff for those who are interested

This weekend took time away from the computer, the boys went to the factory after shopping at Laverton Market to get some of the pieces needed to make Morgan's Bike Trailer, my little fella is so chuffed with himself, this is so he carry his little friends on.

 He can go round in circles to

He hopes to put a post on his blog soon.  Now the boys made better progress than us girls.  But in all fairness we had food shopping, washing, cleaning, weeding etc (or I did most of it lol), you know what it is like, put the washing out and then see a weed or two before you know it an hour has gone lol!  It was really good to chill out together especially as Rosanna picked up a sore throat and head cold.  Feeling much better today.

We had a trip to Spotlight to get some more plastic canvas for our canvas bags we are cross stitching as we mess up on the cutting out lol!  This is how far we have got!

Sunday we started our latch hook projects (last years Xmas Pressies), Rosanna is making a Rudolph cushion and I am trying to make a snowman, never done this before took forever to cut out the canvas and have not mastered how to use the latch hook yet.

Reaching 32 degrees today and tomorrow with a thunderstorm due, sounds like crafting weather to me lol!  Let's hope DH thinks so too.  Off to the factory now, catch up with you all later.

Thanks for visiting, hope you are all well, happy crafting, take careX:)
