Santas little helper

Hi there,

Finally things are getting back to "normal" and I can have a bit of me time.  I am making a start on my Christmas cards - finally - I know "it" will be here before we know it, so my plan is "be prepared" - hopefully I can get everything made in good time.

I downloaded this little image from the Saturated Canary website - so much choice  I just love how she has captured their eyes.

Crafts and Me - Roses.
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in September.
I love Promarkers - Occupation  (Toy maker - can't disappoint my daughter now can I!)
Allsorts Challenge - Inspired by a song (Santa Claus is coming to town - Anything Christmassy gets me humming that song)

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello there, long time no see!
I've finally managed to blog a card - I really can't believe where the time has gone and I have soooo missed my little crafty time (althought I have been looking at your blogs though), I am quite out of practice so thought I would start quite simple.

Bearly Mine Challenge - Anything goes.
Passion for Promarkers - Green and Yellow.  (Mine is mint green and off yellow)
Whimsey - Anything goes.

Well the kids are all now settling in to school well, all looking rather dapper in their new uniforms - I have been having trouble getting a standard size but in longer length blazer for one of my sons.  I had ordered one, but unfortunately 2 days before they started school, they rang to say that they couldn't get one! - bless he has to go into school with sleeves nearly half way up his arm!

I am a little excited at the moment - I have finally got a new phone - a touch phone (my old one was a little worse for wear and I was spending more on PAYG top ups rather than what I am now on contract and getting a lot more (plus a new phone to boot).  I did take this picture with it, hence not the best at the moment (need to get the settings right).  I usually get things second hand from my hubby / friends etc so to get something new is quite special - love the apps - I feel quite a newby as I keep having to ask my son, what does this do, how do I do this - oh the joys.

Anyhow, that is it for now, hopefully will be back soon.
Take care,
