Christmas at Fab N Funky.....

Our sponsor is the amazing The Paper Shelter

Hi everyone!
I'm rather late with my card for the new Fab N Funky challenge!
My elderly neighbor passed away sudden and it was his funeral today!
In the last few weeks he cut the large trees down that were between our houses and it's made such a difference we could have a natter and a laugh over the fence. 
Kelly and Jayden are so noisy. Kelly loves the swings and is usually singing Frozen or twinkle twinkle at the top of her voice. 
Sadly she has her Nana's singing voice which hubby says "Sounds like the cats being strangled" I would look over at Alan pottering on in the garden with a huge grin on his face.
He will be sadly missed but I have some lovely memories of him and his late wife. Even the kids who grew up around him loved & respected him We have been neighbors for 20 years.
Our sponsor is The Paper Shelter which I love.
I used
I Wonder what this is & Yep I have my methods!
Hope you will pop over and join in with our Christmas challenge. HERE
I also used Crafter's Companion dies.

Craft Room!!!

Hi Everyone!
My craft room has been driving me crazy for ages.
 I had to try and get it sorted out! I bought a 12x12 stand £20 from Ebay HERE.
They still have a few left and also do them in A4. Not for long at that price. It came next day delivery. I had not even told hubby lol!
I wish I had room for more!! I can finally see work space. I tend to craft on my knee so the work space is usually cluttered. 
I don't suppose it will be like that long though!
Have a good weekend
