Just a couple of cards ...

I've done over the holidays.
Thought I'd start on the
birthday card stock.
Hope you like them. I
think "Ellie" needs to be on
a bigger card, but she is
sooo cute.
Off to have a look round some of my favourite blogs and websites.
See you all later.

Merry Merry ...

Christmas and a Happy New Year !!!!
My apologies for being a naughty blogger and not posting. What with cards, work and family issues, I just haven't had time to go on the PC.

I promise that in 2009 I'l be a better blogger and post more often.

I would like to congratulate my good friend Lorna on becoming a Nannie for the 1st time. Her daughter Amee had gorjus baby Jake earlier in the week. CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!!

Well we're off to MIL's in a bit for dinner. I've made my traditional trifel to take. The dish usually comes home sometime in the New Year as everyone is too full to have any today LOL ! I'm not leaving until I've had a dish.

Have a lovely day.

I can't believe ...

its' 2 weeks since I last posted. Naughty girl ! I just don't know where the time goes.

Went out Friday and Saturday and got 2 Secret Santa's. One was made by my MIL (pictured), and the other is safely tucked away, wrapped in shiny silver paper ready for next week. Thank you MIL it's beautiful.
Went to DS's 1st Nativity play on Wednesday. He was an inn keeper along with 3 other little boys. It was lovely, bought a tear to my eye. I was so proud of him.
This week its' his trip on Tuesday and the party on Thursday, which I've got to make 6 little cakes for him to take in.
And I've still got my family cards to make and the inserts to put in my friends cards. Think I'd better toddled off and get on with it.

I havent done any crafting all weekend so I need to get my bum into gear as Ive still got Chrissy cards to make and put inserts in. I hate that job, inserts. Do you ?

Well Id better go and get DS ready for school, he wants his hair spiking. You have to look good when your the inn keeper in year R's play.
