Best Christmas Present....EVER!!

I hope you've all had a very Merry Christmas shared with Family and Friends.  I also hope there were plenty of crafting goodies in your stockings and under the tree!
I was planning on updating my blog in order but I had a wonderful surprise this month and want to share it with you.  As some of you will already know, each year Tim Holtz creates '12 Tags of Christmas' and posts each day on his blog from December 1st.  This year I also joined Twitter and followed Mario's BTS (behind the scenes), this added to the excitement with the sneaky peak photo's etc.  The 12 Tags is a great start to the month and has a huge following with around a couple of thousand comments left on the blog each day.  Well just imagine my excitement when I noticed that the comment I left on Day 5 was one of the ones lucky few selected as a winner....!!  Anyway, last Thursday morning I had a call to say that a parcel from America had arrived in the post.
I was out all day at work and then all evening celebrating my Niece's 17th birthday.  The anticipation was awful but well worth the wait and look what I received when I finally arrived home...
It was the best Christmas present...EVER!!  I can't wait to use them so hope to get in my craft room at some point over the holiday.

Thanks for looking!

It's been a while

So it's been a while since my last blog post but I suffered a family bereavement in October and had a month where I didn't craft at all.  A weekend away from the World crafting with the girls at the end of November renewed my enthusiasm and now my addiction to all things craft is worse than ever!

I have a number of projects to share with you but I will do this in a series of posts in chronological order of creation.  Firstly up is a birthday card I made for someone special back at the beginning of October.  The card is created using mainly Tim Holtz products (what else I hear you!). 

Thanks for looking!
