WEEK 42 Just Christmas and Birthday Card Challenge

A warm hello to you on this Monday morning! i don't know where the weekend went again, but all i do know is that the dreaded school run will soon be back!!! im determined to make the most of the last couple of weeks. I hope everyone is enjoying their school holidays and that you are still finding some me time and time to craft.

I have to admit my time to craft has been cut drastically the last couple of weeks with everything going on here just now.

I would once again like to thank everyone who has been kind enough to drop me a line regarding my ongoing problems on the homefront. I can not tell you how much this has meant to me, without the lovely comments and emails, i think i would be in a nutty house by now!

I would also like to thank those of you who have been kind enough to purchase some of my crafting stash needing new homes. I will go back to that towards the end of the post.

I have been absent from the JCBC challenge recently due to my personal problems, but am back on the case this week, with one of my own sketches. Not being in touch with my MOJO its the best i could come up with! it would be great if you could join us this week.

I have used one of my rubber romance images for this card. I love this girl and i love this brand of stamps.

I believe the papers are dovecraft or papermania, orange is one of my favourite colours at the moment.

CLEAR OUT and Mystery Packages

I have been thrilled with what i have manged to clear so far, but i still have tons left, i know some of you are concerned i was giving up crafting, oh no, i can't see that ever happening, but i have so many papers, ribbons, embellishments etc, that i shall not use, i thought it would make sense to recycle it! at least thats what ive been telling my hubby, who i admit doesn't look best convinced!!!!
I thought i would offer a couple of mystery packages. Obviously i can't tell you what will be in them otherwise they wouldn't be a mystery, but what i can tell you is that they will include the following, ribbons, flowers, papers, embelishments, and if you have a die cutting machine at least one die, 2 x rubber stamps, chipboard . The cost of these will be £20.00 excluding postage and packing.
If you would prefer a larger mystery package i can do that no problem.
Check out posts below this one for other things i still have for sale.
Thank you all for taking the time to read this. I hope you all have a lovely day and i will be back tomorrow with this weeks CCC.
Hugs Linda x
