Its Sunday already, i can't believe another week has passed me by. I apologise for once again, the lack of blogging this week. I am so sorry i havn't been round to visit you all. I promise by Wednesday this week things will be back to normal and i will get back to my blogging with the enthusiasm i had pre-christmas preparations.

Here are a few of the cards i have made for christmas using some toppers that my lovely friend Emma had sent me. I promised to show her what i did with them, hope she likes them.

I have been buried under my christmas papers and embelishments desperately trying to get all my christmas cards finished, and i am pleased to report by the end of tomorrow, i should have finished.

I have promised myself that next year i am starting much earlier, i have to get myself more organized!!!!

It has been a busy weekend. Yesterday we made a start on putting up the christmas tree and decorations, we need to do the finishing touches today. We also plan a trip into town to the special christmas event being held in the high street, with supposeably lots of small stalls selling nice christmas fayre. Its also chance to do a little bit more christmas shopping.

I hope you are all on top of your christmas preparations, is it just me or has it crept up quickly this year??

I will be posting some more cards tomorrow morning. This is the first lot i could post, as i was sending out alot of the others. These are for friends and family here at home, so its safe to show you all.

Well i hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever you decide to do.

Hugs for now Linda x
