Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward too the next new year ahead!
We had a lovely xmas day with lots of sharing presents and a lovely xmas dinner with the family. No craft stuff for me but to be honest i don't think there is much i need ooh apart from a new paper cutter as i broke mine just the other night when i was cutting was thick acetate, have enclosed a pic of the card i needed to make for my daughters friend.
Sorry its just a quick chat today off to the shops may pick up a bargain or two!!!hehe

hiya.....update on the craft fair i was doing today not really a very good turn out don't know if it was the really cold weather or just the wrong time maybe too early!!

Better look at the next one when ever that maybe!!!!

I see i have been given more suprises from my crafting friends which i will gladly visit and do the duty thing a bit later over the weekend, as off for a meal with my hubby now
