I've managed to get behind with blogging the things I've been making again. Needless to say, it's Christmas cards I've mainly been making but before I share one I've made using the new sketch on The Sketch File, I'll break away from Christmas and show you the notebook I made as part of MIL's birthday present a couple of weeks back. I used a cheap notepad from Wilko's then created a spined cover from cereal box chippie to wrap around the notepad. I made a loop inside to hold a cut-down pencil to finish it off.
Papers all SEI (Juliette, I think),
Cereal packet cardboard,
Seam binding (grey and pink0 and pink card candy from Creative Treasures
Memory Box rosette die, Spellbinders labels 18
I was quite pleased with how it turned out so I may make one or two more for Christmas presents
- I've bought a stack of 18p notepads and a pack of 30 pencils from Poundland just in case hehe
On Tuesday the December sketch was posted over on The Sketch File
I decided to give the sketch a bit of a rotation for my card, and used the sketch like this:
Here's my card:
Papers|: Simple Sroies 6x6 Christmas pad

Do you get the magazine "Simply Homemade"? I was thrilled to bits to find out that this blog was mentioned on their Inspiring Blogs page.
Exciting huh? It was a lovely surprise when my crafty forum friend Janice said she'd seen it - I had the mag added to my groceries order pdq, I don't mind telling you!
Well that's it for today, I've completely failed to go near my craft desk for the best part of two whole days so I'm going to go there now and see if I can figure out what to do for my Daring Cardmakers offering this week.
