Another Quiet Day

Well thats another day gone, the year's almost at an end, have spent most of this afternoon surfing the web, jumping from one craft site to another looking for some bits and bobs i've been after for a wee while, got some great bargains and found some great sites that I will certainly be using in the future.

Over on Crafters Companion Forum, Janette has set the monthly card swap theme for January and this month it is to make a shaped card, I have a couple of ideas rattling round my brain, just need to try them out and see how they turn out, stay tuned to see what I can come up with.

I managed to put this card together, Its a Sugar Nellie stamp, its one of the first I bought and have to say it is still one of my favourites, the papers are just odd bits from my ever expanding bit box.
Also managed to pop out to The Craft Hoose as I had ran out of a couple of wee items and as a regular customer had some loyalty vouchers to use up, so treated myself to some extra items, managed to get the storage bag for my lovely new bind it all machine.

Adam and Conner have gone Batman daft recently since they received the Lego Batman games for their DS's and have been running around the house all day in the outfits that Santa left them, I'll try and get my pics uploaded for yous, they even came out to Tesco shopping this afternoon dressed as their heros, We did get a lot of strange looks while shopping i have to admit.

Christmas is over, at last peace.

Can't believe I haven't been on here for so long, but now Christmas has gone and theres a new laptop in the house i'm back again, although i've not posted anything for ages, i've been keeping upto date with everyone elses blogs and there are some fab ones out there, well done to everyone your cards and blogs are great, keep up the hard work.
Well that's christmas past again for another year, the boys were totally spoilt this year again, but I guess thats why we have kids and I wouldn't really have it any other way, the house is finally beginning to get back to normal, mum has gone home and Errol is back at work offshore today so it's back to being just me and the two boys. PEACE!!!!!! Looking foreward to when they are in bed and i can put my feet up this evening and do nothing.

I' ve just been and ordered myself some new crafting goodies with my christmas pennies and will be stalking the postman until they arrive, I am ready to get on with all the new challenges that are being set and armed with a new digital camera will be able to post them here.

Looking forward to the new Sugar Nellie Sugar Bowl opening on 1st January, as I am a totally addicted to Sugar Nellies, can't wait to get suck into the challenges, good luck Gayle hope it all goes smoothly for you.

Just started this so its all new to me, but i'll give it a bash and see how i get on, anyway have recently joined the Crafters Companion forum and have got to say everyone is so friendly and welcoming, love you all xxxxx, and i;ve been busy taking part in the challenges ran on the forum.

So thought i'd so you my effort for the April challenge, which is to make a card and matching ATC on the floral theme using buttons and glitter, but didn't have buttons in the house, so made mine without any.
