B-day X-mas Weekly Challenge

So are you already for the big day? i hope so as time is running out ladies! i have come to the decision that what i havn't got or done is too bad now! apart from the grocery shopping that i plan to tackle Tuesday evening, im not doing anymore shopping!

I feel mentally and physically exhausted just now, as im sure so many of you do too.

I would like to thank everyone who has already entered my blog candy, i hope no one will mind but i have decided to leave it to run until Christmas Sunday. The reason being it will be too late to post before christmas now, and the post office will not be open till the Monday after christmas. I will get everything packaged up and ready to ship for that Monday. I am adding a few extra little goodies and i am planning to do a much smaller runners up prize. I will be drawing names from hats or at least my daughter will on sunday at mid day. I have tried to leave everyone a message on their blog, i apologise if i have missed you out.

Not had much time to craft at all, can't wait to get back to some serious card making. I have made only one card in 4 days and thats the one for this weeks challenge. I have used an image from spiral whispers and coloured with my pro markers. The papers are from the doodlebug collection and sentiment from craftwork cards. Hopefully after christmas ill have some more impressive cards to show you.

I am not sure whether ill be online again before christmas, so if im not i would like to wish each and every one of you the best ever christmas, hope santa brings you something that your little hearts desire. Some nice papers, a little bit of ribbon, or some nice new rubber!! (i can wish, but hubby refuses to buy me crafting goodies!) So enjoy the big day and look forward to catching up with you all after christmas.

Very big hugs to you all Linda x
