Merry Christmas everyone.

I'll not be doing any more crafting this year so I thought I would use my blog as many others have done to send my Christmas greeting.

Thank you for all the cards we have received, as usual the hand crafted ones take pride of place second only to our family cards.

This picture was taken last year at the end of November in the airport as we left the Dominican Republic after a much needed holiday in the sun.
The tree was decorated with lots of lights, red baubles, drums, lots of gold bows and 'straw' hats. It really did seem strange to see in such hot weather. To all my forum, blogger and facebook friends I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year. I hope 2009 sees you Happy and Healthy.

A bit of rough!

Take your minds out of the gutter right now.
I meant a bit of rough icing on my Christmas cake.
I don't go in for smooth edges and fancy piping on my cake just the good old snow effect with a couple of embellies on top.
The poor angel looks as though she's stuck in a snowdrift.
It looked as though it had snowed in our kitchen by the time I had finished, the icing sugar just seems to fly everywhere.
Maybe it will get cut at Christmas this year, it's usually well into the new year before we touch it.

Thank You

I received this lovely unmounted rubber stamp from Annie this morning. It was blog candy from a few weeks ago which I was fortunate enough to win. The stamp is Oakley in the bathtub, a Whiff of Joy stamp.

I got my versafine out straight away to try it on a scrap of paper. It is a lovely stamp and one i've not come across before, it gives a beautiful crisp image even on cheap copier paper. This photo really does not do it justice at all.
Thank You so much Annie i'm sure i'll find lots of uses for it.
