A Few Photos for you

Hi there! Just thought I would drop in a show you what I have been up to the last few days. I have been visiting everyone but feeling just a bit lazy and so just couldn't be bothered to post, I'm very naughty so tonight is my catchup.

This cute little box pouch is going to my teenage next door neighbour and I used the tutorial from here after seeing over at one of my favourite blogs Hey Bubbles. The weekend was full of fun times with friends going to a good friends yearly Christmas party followed on Sunday by a christening. It was great to catch up with friends and it makes me release how lucky I am to have special people in my life, people I can depend on. So I was on a bit of a card making frenzy on Saturday night so I could take a card to go along with the christening gift. Within the same family two people share a birthday one day apart so a couple of cards for birthdays were needed too. That night was a late one for me but it was great to get back into a bit of stamping.

For this card I used the sketch from over at
Everything but the Kitchen Sink and to challenge myself again I chose the colours and a snowflake stamp from the challenge over at Embellish Magazine.

Anyway I should go and do something Christmassy like wrap or make cards (yes I know I haven't finished making Christmas cards) I would love to get them out to people if I can. Take care and I should be back soon but if not have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. Thank you for stopping by and visiting .
