As promised...

Here I am again!

What on earth is happening with Blogger these days? It really seems to have a mind of its own, and I'm finding it quite frustrating actually!! The new layout makes it easier to upload pictures and edit posts.. but this old one is just pants!

Anyway, I thought I'd come and just finish off with a few cards as promised yesterday - these are the last of the Christmas cards that went to teachers at school... so again, quite simple ones.

Well of course this one had to be blue, and I've used the papers from the Forever Friends Christmas pack ... they're so dainty and lovely..

Here's the image in more detail. She was coloured using prisma's.. and I've found the perfect paper to stamp and colour - after looking long and hard for some, my patience has paid off.. lol.

Here I've used the same Forever Friend papers from Docrafts, and a slightly different layout. Again, quite simple, and I'm not entirely happy with this one, as I think she could've done with being stuck on at the other end of the card.. but hey ho... she's on there and it's Christmassy!

And the obligitory close up for you...

And last but not least..

I combined blues and greens for this one.. not entirely sure how I'd like it, but I think it turned out quite nicely actually.. and off setting the oval a little gave me room to add embellishments.

Well. I hope you like my few Christmas cards I've had to show.

Funnily enough.. carrying on from my post yesterday about the cost of Christmas. We nipped into Tesco last night to pick up a few bits with my daughter, and there was a lady in the till in front of us. She had two big trolleys of shopping - pretty much like everyone else..

Just as we paid, I had a conversation with the Duty manager, and mentioned the cost of Christmas and the lady in front's shopping, and she nipped over to see what the running cost of her shopping was.. well, it was a staggering, gobsmacking £1374 at that point and was still continuing!!! OMG.... I am still speechless.. I think I've overspent if my shopping comes to over £100! I think I would simply shoot myself if it came anywhere near hers! Even the Duty manager was astounded! She was lost for words, and so was I. And it was only on 254 items! WTF?

Oh well... c'est la vie... and in fact, have a very Merry Christmas and a fab New Year. I don't think I'll be able to get back on before 2012.. but if I don't, enjoy yourselves!

I'll be back to doing my demo's from the 7th January - although there may be something else in the pipeline before then.. but I'll keep you posted! See you soon!
