Santa is coming early

Morning All

Well Alan and I went to look at the dishwasher that was on offer for £5.00 and decided not to buy it as cheap as it was, Alan gave it a good check over and thought it had been in the ladies garage for more than the few months she was telling us it had, the inside was disgusting so we came away a bit disappointed.  When we got home had a serious discussion and decided to buy a new one as all this dish washing has flared up my eczema on my hands,  so hopefully it will be delivered on Thursday this week.

I made a couple of cards yesterday using Christmas Makey Bakey Mice from Crafters Companion love these sweet images wanted to keep them fairly simple as I will need to send them out in the post so didn't want to make them too heavy.

So without further ado

Have quite a bit to do today, need to sort out all my posts for my DT spots as I am going to schedule them over the Christmas period, also need to go to the vets to pick up some flea stuff for Bella as she couldn't have it last week when she was so poorly but she is so much better now thank goodness.   I must also tidy my crafting area up it is just full of bits and bobs that need to be put away.  Also inserts for cards need to be completed.

Well that's it for now my lovelies will be back later to do a blog hop to see all your wonderful work.

Love Alison xxx


  1. Hi Alison, awwww they are really sweet!! I know just what you mean about keeping post costs down - all my Christmas cards are very flat with maybe just one thing up on foam squares.

    Fab makes in your previous posts as well - you are very inventive! I think sometimes about doing something other than cards but that's about as far as I get - thinking about it!!!
