Did you all have a nice Christmas and get everything you wished for?
I hope so - we went to my Sister's this year as it's the first Christmas they have had off for 10 years (they are both in the medical profession), so it was really nice and just to put the icing on the cake we managed to get a few minutes on Skype with my Nephew who is serving out in Afghanistan. Got to say it brought a lump to my throat when his little 18 month old daughter was telling him how much she missed him and was blowing him kisses and telling him she loved him - awww!
I'm going to be cleaning out my craft room this weekend - gulp - as I have so much stuff I either can't find anything or forgot where I put it - so wish me luck! ;o)
Well it's Saturday again - already - so that means it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss and this week the challenge is "New" and our generous sponsor is Lili of the Valley.
New can mean pretty much anything - a new house or a new baby or just anything new you have that you have used on your card. So, to be in with a chance to win £10 to spend in the Lili of the Valley on line shop get your creations made and posted over at Totally Gorjuss and don't forget to check out what the lovely DT ladies have made to whet your appetite.
