Morning Peeps, I've been a really bad blogger this week I'm afraid, another very poorly doggie, this time Daisy who is ten and had to have most of her mammary glands removed and very fragile still. Add to that my stamps for the Chocolate Baroque 4th January One Day Special on Hochanda ran into RM problems (putting it politely) and had to be sent again, a week lost meaning I've had my head down getting samples turned round in time. I've got nine made so far so well on my way...........teasing you now, they are all new stamps and yummy!!
This will be my last post before Christmas so I would like to wish everyone a happy festive season, I know for many Christmas just won't be the same this year but let's pray 2021 is a better year all round. For hubby and I it will be a strange Christmas, usually all the children and grandchildren are with us, but that's about 20 of us so just not an option this year. We decided as a family with several secondary teachers, another mingling with Boris and Co and an NHS front line worker that even if allowed it's just not worth the risk, hopefully we will have a belated Christmas in the Spring and see one another once again.
Moving on to Allsorts which is a two week challenge and the last of 2020. Kath is our host and she would like to see 'Sparkle and Shine and the prize a £15 store voucher from Stamp Addicts. It's a bit of a photo heavy post as I also have a post over at the Chocolate Baroque blog today plus yesterday's shares for our mid month reminders at We Love Chocolate Baroque and Stamping Sensations challenges.
So a gold one and a green one for Allsorts, I made 75 of these way back in January after seeing Lucy from Sweet Poppy Stencils use this beautiful wreath and the hot foiling technique.
And dare I say another YouTube video link here, today's one making the card below with a Gelli Plate, Brusho's and a Chocolate Baroque stamp.
A green version of the Allsorts share at the top of the post, made in exactly the same way.
I'll be honest and say I really don't enjoy making Christmas cards, especially batch ones, I blame starting them for TV in May every year and after that I never want to do my own and those for daughters/DIL's. So as there is usually a lull in TV work around the Christmas period (although this year seems to be an exception and I have soooo much to do) I take advantage of the break and get the bulk out of the way so they are done and dusted and just have fun making the individual ones for family, DT work and the odd order during the year. Yes I already have about 100 made for next year.

Finally, the Fairy scene which is of course all Lavina.
If your still with me after all that, have a lovely weekend and Christmas.
