I have been a bad bad blogger of late. I really don't like wishing time away but I am really looking forward to the day after Boxing Day. I will then be officially on holidays in Port Stephens for a month of R & R.
The past two weeks have been flat out with my customer Christmas Party last Tuesday night and then the Stampin' Up! team that I am lucky enough to be part of on Friday night both at my house. They were both fantastic nights and I totally enjoyed both parties. I also did a workshop on the Thursday night.
I have my son's Year 10 formal tonight which I still can't believe he isn't in Year 7 anymore, where did those years go.
As usual I am running behind schedule and still need to make my own Christmas cards which I will hopefully get done along with my tax return this weekend. Luckily I don't have any overseas ones to send or they would be more like Valentines cards. I am hoping that I have a stash of cards somewhere I have forgotten about that will get me out of trouble.
I am hoping to get a few more posts done in the next week or so but I won't promise anything.
Perhaps while I am laying around sipping cocktails over the holidays I can get some work done for next year so I can at least start the year ahead of myself.
Back soon hopefully!!!!!

Finally the Summer Mini is active and you can now see all the fantastic goodies available. You can never have enough gift tags on hand and these gorgeous little card holders are ideal to store them in.
The blue folder is made from Tempting Turquise and matching paper. The cards use Tempting Turquise and Green Galore card stock and the co-ordinating papers. The words are from Short & Sweet and of course I have added bling with Dazzling Diamonds. The punches are the new 1 3/4" circle punch, Word Window, Full Heart and Scallop Edge. Two of the cards have some faux stitching added as a highlight.
The yellow folder is made from Barely Banana card and matching paper. The cards use Pixie Pink and Barely Banana card stock with co-ordinating papers. The words are from Short & Sweet and Best Yet Hostess Set. The punches used are 1 3/4" circle, 1 3/8" circle, 1 1/4" circle and the Full Heart. Once again I couldn't resist adding a little Dazzling Diamonds.
If you missed the Blog Hop yesterday, you can still take a look at the fantastic creations. Just follow the links in my post from yesterday.
I would love to hear what you think so please take time to leave a comment.
