The big bang...

... and tantrums!

Well, I'm so sorry I haven't blogged for a while, I've been cursed with such bad luck its unbelievable!!

Firstly it started when my laptop cable very kindly hissed and blew up on my leg (!!!) leaving me without a power supply to my life line not to mention a sore leg, it could only happen to me - seriously a couple of years ago my ghd straighteners blew up right next to my face. I'm jinxed!!

Anyway, Stu very kindly ordered me a new cable but I was still without power for a week and with my battery being dead I couldn't do a thing! When it finally arrived would you believe it... the Internet connection in the house couldn't connect - something to do with the micro filter?? - so I had a mini tantrum and was huffing and puffing for a good few days ! Haha, I really shouldn't be surprised, it's just my luck.

So, I'm in the middle of putting together a few tutorials which I hope I'll get a chance to finish soon and will upload.

While I was without the web I decided to bring my Christmas stash out of hibernation (I know, I know but I'm always rushing around at the last minute!!)

I have lots of gorgeous stamps from SU! and some fab forever friends ones from last year but my all time favourite stamp that comes out year after year is my Snow Bunny Bella. I love it soooo much! I've been playing with it loads and will share more cards with you soon.





I can't really grumble about the past couple of weeks, I won 2 sets of Molton Brown gift sets in work and have been pampering myself within an inch of my life :o)

I will upload a few more card samples I've been working one within the week (Internet connection permitting lol)

Thanks for stopping by,
Take care

You put me to shame starting Xmas cards - I don't start mine until Dec 20th LOL!
Lovin' that Bella image - do you ever add flock to her coat? Would be so yummy and fluffy!!!
Hugs,
