Getting Ready For Christmas.....................

Well the bear in my card is, not sure about me!

I found a great sketch at Cute Card Thursday and decided it was so nice I'd make a couple of cards with it. Sorry they're a bit repetitive but I've still got a lot of Christmas cards to make!

I have no idea why I thought I'd have time to write this post this morning but as you can see I didn't. I was getting my hair cut after work so I really thought I'd have time to spare since I didn't have to wash and dry it. Somehow time ran away from me, so here I am now!


I used :-
Image :- Box of Ornaments - isn't this Gruffie cute?
Sentiments and Candi :- Craftwork Cards.
Snowflake :- Martha Stewart punch.
Poinsettia, gems and Glamour Dust.

Challenges :-
Cute Card Thursday :- Sketch.
House Mouse :-Getting Ready for Christmas.
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long :- Anything Goes.

Well I'd best get a move on now. It's our quiz night at the WRI tonight. We have 11 tables booked which is really good as we probably have room for about 12 maximum in the small school hall where we meet. Apart from that there are only 12 of us to cater for them and 4 of us are involved in setting the questions and marking the quiz. I'm the treasurer so this afternoon I've been wrapping 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes times 3 each, the quizmaster's present and my own raffles. I drew the line at wrapping the raffles I bought for the WRI. We all take at least one each but since there are so few of us I buy some too. We're lucky too that some of our regulars always bring a raffle too. I also have one of our member's baking and raffle that her daughter brought to me at work and said her Mum couldn't go as she wasn't very well. It's always a good night and fun, especially since the quizmaster, a local councillor, is a bit daft. He can't  resist giving clues now and then. We also have a regular who can't resist arguing about at least one of the answers. It's all in good fun though, nobody takes him seriously.

Catch up later or maybe even tomorrow if I'm late home.
