Freebie Christmas Glitter WordArt

I hope your time off is cruisey like the one I am having right now. Not much scrapping going on yet, but am still dabbling with creating Christmas wordart. So wanted to share these 2 wordarts with you, one winter and one summer one perfect for those Kiwi or Ozzie Christmas layouts. The white/grey background is for preview purposes only and wordart is saved in png file format. I hope you can use them...

You can download them here

A quick Merry Christmas posting

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families and enjoyed the festivities together over the last few days. For us it was spend at my Mum's place with my sister and her family there too. We couldn't have asked for any better weather as the day was sunny but not too hot. Christmas this year was really for the kids & even our Corey got spoiled with new toys and dog treats.
Well, haven't the last days just flown by. It seems like we have been eating non stop since Christmas eve! My BB being the bbq king has been on duty every day even yesterday when we joined our friends for jet skiing our bbq came with us. Nothing like a great sausy on a hot Wellington day! I took a heap of photos yesterday, so plenty to get scrapping with soon.

This year I did a bunch of Pecan pies for presents and I am so pleased how the bag toppers have turned out. My Christmas baking has been well received & are a scrummy mouthful treat, yum yum. BTW, Buttkins is our family nick name - thanks Eilish ;-)

I'm on a roll, here's my 2nd Freebie

Thanks to the many visitors to my tiny blog this week I have hit nearly 100 downloads of my 1st freebie. You have come from far & wide and hopefully you'll visit again soon, perhaps to download my 2nd effort. This time I have on offer some frames, 6 glitter ones, 1 black and a grunged one I'd use for a mask. The glitter ones were created with MzCora's freebie glitter, which I just had to grab! What girl doesn't lover her bling.

Well it has been a busy week, my CJ is already on school holiday as of this Monday. So he's had to fit in by spending the majority days with either BB working or at my work. Just as well he has his own laptop and can watch the latest borrowed DVDs in peace. I am working till Tuesday 23rd, so that I have at least Christmas eve to get semi ready for the next day. Though some of the day will be spend visiting friends as one has her birthday and another has his yearly Christmas eve party.

Signing off now, it's late. Hope you have a fab weekend wherever you are. Oops, I nearly forgot the download link.

For your download pleasure here

Are you ready? Christmas is nearly here. WordArt Freebie

I found myself dabbling with a WordArt this evening. As you can see I'm no pro, but thought it hadn't turned not to shabby so wanted to share my very 1st freebie with all of you out there including my nearest and dearests. Don't freek, the "GiMP Girl DesigNZ" logo isn't part of the WA. I've created it in a png file with transparent background so hopefully any editing software out there can use it. But if not, just give me a holler and I'll change if required. All I ask is if you like it give thanks where thanks is due & please leave a link if you end up using it as I would absolutely love it if I can peek at the final result of your LO! I think if you used some of that lovely bling out there to replace my stars it would give it some real sparkle ;-)

So enjoy and download HERE

Spreading Christmas Cheer

Well, it has started. The mass production of numerous Christmas card & Pecan Pie baking. But there still seems to be no end to it all. Feels to me I am leaving things to the last minute again this year!!! Nothing changes ;)
We just had the most stunning weather over the weekend here in NZ, so that called for an impromptu bbq @ Dom's on Friday. Which followed by another one @ Lynn's with both BB & Dom in charge of the cooking. There was sooo much food, we didn't eat it all but we gave it a good try. Both nights we managed to sit outside till late and it was great to see kids enjoying themselves as kids do. Then Sunday afternoon was followed with Christmas drinks and a bit of a get together at Neil & Diane's. Yes, the weather was still perfect in fact it was the hottest day over the weekend. What a nice way to spend it among friends over drinks and nibbles outside on the patio.
We're of to CJ's school prizegiving at Wellington town hall tonight, I wonder if he'll get anything. His report arrived in the mail too on Saturday, he did so well - we are very proud of him. Keep it up my boy.

Tree, what Xmas tree? & latest Award

Well, still no real Christmas tree in sight in our lounge so this girl still not feeling like she has her Xmas mojo. So to get in the mood, I pulled out last night our wee fake tree with fibre optic lights instead. Not the real McCoy I know, but it's a start! The tree is too tiny to pose with, so got Corey to be my test subject. Doesn't he look TOTALLY bored, lol. Didn't see the point in wasting it so scrapped it straight away. Just love a QP, especially when time is precious at the mo.

To my many scrapping girlfriends out there (I have friends!), thanks Cat & Sam for giving me the latest Treasured Friend Award. Also a thanks to Mel for tagging me with the same award post on her blog. You gals all ROCK! Now, I'll take a little breather from passing this award on until I have my thinking cap back, hope you don't mind sweeties.
