Well, what a wonderful, warm and sunny weekend we have just had here in Kent.
Glorious weather for sitting around doing nothing but soaking up a few rays....

...................and what am I doing ?????????????????????

Making a Christmas advent tree of course !!!! LOL !!

My hayfever was really bad so I gave up sitting outside in the sun and sneezing and decided to sit in my craft room.

As I have mentioned I have recently bought the silhouette portrait cutting machine.

I downloaded this pattern..... cut the pieces out ...... and this is the result.

It took a lot of card (approx. 25 sheets a4) but worth it. I have glittered around each box and the sides of the tree.


  1. Wow... this is gorgeous! Amazing :)

  2. WOW! Jan this is amazing, fabulous. You should sell these, brilliant work.

    Love & Hugs
