New Distress Inks...yum!

I've been playing with the new Winter Distress Inks this week. I love each colour, can't decide which is my favourite of the three, I keep changing my mind.  Anyway, after watching a video over at Simon Says Stamp I was inspired to make a Christmas Garland to enter one of Shimelle's challenges which she set both on her blog and as part of the Pretty Paper Party

The sentiment stamp on the middle of the banner is the latest New Design Club stamp from Clarity Stamps and the other one is the freebie from the current Craft Stamper. Click on the pic for a closer view.
Shimelle also challenged us to share a Christmas mini album we had made. This is one I made in a class a few years ago and yes there are still photos to be put in...how shocking!
This was the first time I had taken a class to make a mini-album. I loved learning how to assemble the pages as I was very much a novice. The MME papers and embellishments used were just fabulous. Also loved the little bell on the front.




Well I must go and get on with some boring old housework. My eldest is not very well this week. Turns out he has a chest infection. The doctor actually made a house call yesterday evening, something I didn't think they did anymore? He has to have a weekend of inactivity so he gets out of cleaning his room, much to his delight. He is parked in front of the X-box with his brother.
Hope you all have a good weekend
