catching up with christmas!

#Card #Christmas #craft

Hopefully i will get caught up with these Christmas cards before next christmas is here!
this was a nice simple card for my brother and his wife. The image is from forever friends, i'm not sure where the paper is from, i backed it all onto royal blue card, added 3 gems and some ribbon. I finished it off with a greeting from the same set as the image.

Book Review- Look Who it is by Alan Carr

I don't like many comedians but Alan Carr makes me cry with laughter and i miss him on radio 2. The book takes us through his childhood, up until he starts the friday night project. There were so many interesting and funny stories in here i really enjoyed reading this and laughed out loud in several parts. if you have ever laughed at alan carr then i suggest you buy this book, even though it was written a few years ago.

4 stars out of 5.

Have got this years cards just about finished, but i'm running out of time to blog them! The paper is from DCWV(very old), layered on purple glitter card, i then die cut a scalloped circle and layered a die cut image on this. i then die cut the 2 snowflakes and added them to the top right of the card.

Book Review- Fame by Tilly Bagshawe

To describe this as a bonk buster would be unfair. it is so well written and enjoyable that the name bonk buster seems cheap and sleazy and this book is anything but. It is set in the film world, and based in LA, Derbyshire and Romania  there are 4 main characters, Damien the Romanian film producer, Sabrina the spoilt Lindsey lohan style actress, Viorel the hot actor adopted from Romania when he was a baby and Tish who runs a Romanian orphanage and is called back to her families house in Derbyshire to help sort out the finances. She agrees to let Damien film his remake of Wuthering Heights there. 
I loved reading this from start to finish and loved the friendship built between Viorel and Abel, it was really sweet. The characters were all so well written even the minor characters, rather then added for effect.

i give this book 5 starts out of 5.
