Get your skates on.....

I don't know how you ladies are doing with your Christmas preparations, but I still have quite a bit to do. I'm afraid I'm one of those people who don't relax until the shops have shut on Christmas Eve and I know there is nothing else I can buy! So I really need to get my skates on...



The challenge this week at Creative Card Crew is to use gold or silver on your card. Not something I usually struggle with at anytime of the year but at this time its easy peasy.
I used one of my new stamps from Whiff of Joy which dropped on my mat at the weekend, I just adore this cute lil' mouse, coloured with copics and mounted onto DCWV papers, I know a little bit predictable, but hey they are my favourites :-)

The challenge this week is sponsored by Crafty Addicts and is a fabby prize so why not visit the blog and see what it is - come on you know you want to!

Another busy day today, which sees the final 2 performances of our Christmas concert, always a very busy time, trying to organise the tickets, ensuring we can accommodate as many parents, siblings, grandparents and other relatives as possible. I am going to watch one of the performances, really looking forward to it as I have heard the practices going on for the last couple of weeks but not seen any of it yet.

Just remembered I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday, so better get on over there and leave a link before its too late.....

Hi Sam,
Thanks for your comment on my Blog. The Gold Coast is a beautiful place to live, but we are moving in January to the country. You would notice a lot of changes if you came back. In just five years there are many new houses, roads and people! Beaches are still just as beautiful though. Love your cards.
