yep that's just around the corner so you can start getting prepared now!! to avoid the last minute

I have used the papers from the big one which i have had ages, but still go back and use it over and over again. The image is from Sew many challenges shop, thought this would be a fab image to use for my son to give to his dad, because if you know about the new PS3 came Red Redemption it's all about a cowboy, well my husband is addicted to it at the moment,  LOL but that does mean i have more time to blog and craft..hehe  Angela has been re vamping alot of the images or adding new ones so if you have not been shopping for a while maybe you may wish to pop back and have another look around.
