Hi Everyone, a Snowman for a change, I sort of remembered a joke I saw somewhere, so decided to add it to the card. I'll try and add a few more Christmas cards, the ones I like - this is one of the Christmas cards I am really pleased with There are plenty I would put into the bin, but haven't time to make them again, they are made OK, just not fussy about them. Perhaps next year I will be better prepared and take my time to make them, instead of rushing AGAIN this year. Famous last words ay? Anyhow here's my card.

which I coloured digitally, fussy cut and  layered.

Sentiment die is X cut.

Thought I would show you a photo of some clouds I spied from my crafty room the other evening, I thought they looked like "molars". Nope haven't PS'd it.

Science at The Male Room

Hi Everyone, my DT post for 

My first thought "crikey" my second thought a few seconds later, Yipee, 'cause I can make a card for my Great Nephew, who's birthday is in December, why? well his Grandparents live in the village that Isaac Newton was born, so he knows the story well. In fact I shall be visiting Isaac Newton's house next weekend after attending a craft fair in Peterborough with my SiL.

Isaac Newton changed the way we understand the Universe. Revered in his own lifetime, he discovered the laws of gravity and motion and invented calculus. He helped to shape our rational world view. Here are facts about him VERY interesting.

AND as he "discovered" gravity, what better than an apple tree and a "man" sitting under it! LOL the quote is a play on words for a teen old enough to drink!!!!!!!!!
