House on Christmas street

Whooo hooo it's Friday - gosh I nearly didn't make it through the week !! I have come to realise that I need to start my Christmas crafting preparations in blinkin MAY!!! I thought I was being so good starting my cards in October but what a mad couple of weeks it has been. Nearly all finished now though and so I will be treating myself to a large glass of shandy this evening ;D (please ignore any previous posts about hangovers and never drinking again LOL!)

Oooh I nearly forgot, have you seen these lovely new stamps (wink, wink!) you will love them even more when you hear that they will be yours for FREE come the 30th of December with Stampin' Up!s sale.a.bration, when you spend over £45 on anything in the catalogue. Anyhoo more deets over the coming weeks.

Have a great weekend & see you on Monday xx
