Naughty Or Nice


Firstly i must apologise for the photos of my cards at the moment - i know they look a bit rounded !!! - well the reason is i have lost the lens of the front of the camera (it's somewhere in the house, but with a 3 year old, it's probably in a place that it shouldn't be !!!), but i'm on the case have contacted olympus and they have put me in touch with a someone who can send me a new one, yipee, but probably won't be here till the new year !!

Boiler got finished on Wednesday, so i'm now living in a 'Ready Brek House' - we had a slight mishap on Tuesday night - we had a gas leak and had to call out British Gas, who came and changed the meter, thank goodness.

Right on to todays card - i know i said i probably wouldn't make anymore Xmas cards - but when i saw ABC Christmas Challenge had a blog hop, then i couldn't resist, as i have entered a few of their challenges over the year and absolutely loved them - it also gave me an excuse to use this really cute image, that i've had for a while, some fabby doodlebug papers and to have a play with my new MS deep punch border.
