have you made your list?...


Good morning everyone well here it is, the last day of the year...have you made any resolutions, I don't make any anymore because I never keep them or give up within a few weeks...no willpower lol...oh btw a few people have asked me about my smoking, well touch wood I'm still keeping it up, I must admit its a struggle and has been especially over the holidays and there was a couple of times when I was shopping I would have literally mugged someone for one...but I didn't...well not yet anyway lol...we did manage to go out yesterday not very far but at least a catch up coffee with my lovely Dad and a few giggles, its lovely catching up like this isn't it...we also met a few friends while we were out and about and there hugs and kisses and best wishes for the New Year of course....oooohhhhh I do kinda have a resolution, well its sort of a thing I will try to do I think, I have loads and loads of stamps that I have only used once (I know that's terrible isn't it) and I'm going to sort them out, keep and reuse some of my very favourite ones and the other I will put into bags and give away on monthly candies...so I'm going to share the love on 2013 so make sure you watch out for the A touch of rubber bags...right now onto my card for today, my last one of this year, how strange does that sound lol...how stunning is this Lil ballerina, you just know by looking at her shes by Mo's Digital Pencil don't you...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers from the Kaisercraft - Sweet Nothings 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...they match so well don't they...I finished with a lush rich green satin ribbon bow and a rose from my stash...the fab sketch is from The Sweet Stop Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and the Card Crafter's Circle challenge too...it will be a quiet night in for us two, a drink together at midnight at the most we never really celebrate New Year but do all get together New Years Day for dinner...one of those perfect family get together's we love...whatever your up to tonight I hope you have fun and remember not too much falling down water lol
