Can't believe I've never used this stamp before!!

Isn't that awful? Why have I never inked this cute image before? Probably because I've got lots of Christmas images. Not a good excuse though but hey better late than never.

I made a couple of cards at the crop yesterday and did a lot of glittering and preparing other images for some more Christmas cards. I had a good afternoon with lots of chat and I managed to keep busy the whole afternoon. Sometimes I take too much stuff but not the right stuff and don't have enough to do. This time I got it fairly right. I even had time to have a browse round the shop. Didn't buy too much as I may be going to check out a new craft shop on Thursday if my friend's up to it. She had a minor op just over 2 weeks ago and it's taking longer to get over it than she thought.

So here's one of my cards from the crop.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
DP :- First Edition.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Pearls, gems, Glamour Dust and ribbon.

I'm entering these challenges :-
Crafty Hazelnut :- Twinkle, twinkle little star.
Christmas Stampin All year Long :- Not inked yet.

I've not achieved much today except for doing this post, doing my DT commenting and nipping round my favourite blogs. And the washing and ironing of course. And did I mention the jam? I decided to make strawberry jam this afternoon. I've never made strawberry jam before so I didn't know if it would work or not!! Well I had to have a scone and jam a wee while ago, just to check if it was ok. Hubby said it was fine so that was a relief as his mother was a great cook, baker and of course made jam and chutney. So I'm quite pleased with it. The best of it is I rarely eat strawberry jam but this stuff is quite yummy. Success lol!

I'm off to put an insert in a Get Well card. My Sister-in-law phoned last night to tell me my 95 year old Auntie had had a heart attack and was in hospital. She's not too bad and will probably get out to the local cottage hospital in a day or two. I feel bad about not visiting her but it's a long journey. If she was really ill I wouldn't think twice about going to see her. My brother and sister-in-law live very near her so they're getting all the running around to do. My brother also sometimes takes my Uncle to visit as driving into the centre of Glasgow is a bit much for a 92 year old. Hope my Uncle didn't miss the end of the Scottish Open when he went to visit his Sister!

I'll go and add that insert now and post it to her at work tomorrow. Catch you all tomorrow.

Thanks for looking and if you have time to let me know what you think I'd be really pleased.
