it aint over till...


Good morning everyone, well how was your Christmas, any mishaps and was the jolly guy in the red suit good to you all...I hope so...well I'm back and creating after my little break, did you miss me...bet you didn't even notice I wasn't posting lol...we had a lovely Christmas quiet and just the four of us but I thought for a few minuets on Christmas morning we were going to spend the day in casualty...we (me and Phil) were standing in the kitchen and heard this massive thud, Phil looked out the window and yelled 'omg shes fallen'...our Daughter who was on the deck with her cat had slipped and fallen, her other half was white with shock as her long hair came forward and she had landed so close to a wooden bench her hair was resting on it, he thought she had smashed her face into the bench, well we all did...phew luckily though the only real things besides from a few bruises and scrapes was a very very dirty pair of new Christmas pj's which were easily sorted out...well it certainly made sure we were all awake anyway but for a second or two I could have burst into tears just at the thought of what it could have been like...shes terrible for breaking bones she has already had two broken wrists and a broken nose so like her Mum just a tad accident prone lol...everything else went without a hitch and my Sister and her lovely family, Dad, Daughter and her other half and us all spent the day after boxing day together...loved it and I might have just gone over the top a tad on the food front though...well I'm a Mum and its in my genes to feed isn't it lol...right now my first card since the holidays and I'm sorry but the Christmas aren't over just yet, I love making them don't you and who can blame me with a cutie like this to colour...this fabulous little scene stamp is from the Mulberry Wood collection and is called Merry & Bright...how cute is that elephant...I used my usual distress inks and some Stickles Glitter Glue - Star Dust the lush paper is Magnolia Holly Script 12" x 12" Paper backed with some plain red cardstock and I finished with a tag cut from the the name strip of the paper and some lush green ribbon, everything except the ribbon is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and loads on sale too...the fab sketch is from Stampin' Royalty challenge and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and the Cute Card Thursday challenge too...well I'm off to hit the Next sale today to spend some gift cards I got in my stocking...wish me luck, I hate sales but have to see whats on offer lol...whatever your up to today have a lovely day and I hope you find some bargains too
