A little bit early!

Hi

Hope you are OK and are enjoying the weekend - I'm freezing here!  I think my body got used to the warmer weather we had last week and it's now protesting now the temperature has returned to normal!!  I've turned the heating back on (don't tell HB!!) and am staying indoors attempting to get some projects finished, not that the kids seem to be in the mood to let me do so!

In the space of two minutes when I was loading the washing machine my youngest managed to find my make up bag, empty it, locate the powder, open it and tip it out everywhere.  Little horror.  And OMG!!  I'm going to be shiney until I get to the shops and buy some more!!

A prolonged stay on the naughty step did little to curb his enthusiasm for reaking havoc and he was next found in the bathroom, carefully unwrapping, err, well you can imagine... I suppose I should be grateful the little monster didn't actually try to eat them or he'd have got an almighty shock!!

To calm myself I decided to make some cards using one of the stamps I got from Ally Pally last week (my first Stamping Bella stamp!!).  I can now be slightly smug and say that I now have 4 Christmas cards completed :-)  Only another 50 or so to go :-(



Supplies: Santa's Clothes a Dryin', Stampin Bella; Kraft, Black Dotty and Red CS; Charms; Buttons; Black Pearls; Red Ribbon; Jute; Cuttlebug Snowflakes and Swiss Dots embossing folders; MS Snowflake Punch; Nesties Deckled Rectangles;; Copics; Glossy Accents; Woodware Fluffy Stuff; Crystal Glitter; Stickles.

I'd like to enter this card for these challenges please :-)


Before I go, quick update on my Dad - he is now home and looks much better - they now know what caused his heart attack and are treating it.  On the downside they have said that he really needs a heart bypass, but that it is not possible because of his age, and so they are trying to treat it with drugs instead, and I don't think he is keen on surgery anyway, which at his age is understandable with all the risks it entails.  So for now it is a case of watch and wait to see how he gets on - a huge thanks to everyone that has sent their good wishes, it means a lot :-)

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, thanks for stopping by, Sue xx
