Hi peeps!
Oooh, I know, I'm really late tonight!  I've been playing all evening and again have lost all track of time.  Sorry there was no post yesterday but I was out with my aunt and cousin.  That's the first time I've seen them since New Year's day so we'd lots to catch up on.

I was out with my oldest friends today.  I've known the three of them since 1969.  Again it's the first time we've met up this year so you can image how much chatter there was.

I had two surprises today as I won at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge and Fab n Funky.  Wow!

Here's one of the cards I made tonight, hope you like it.  It was inspired by Stephanie of Stamping & Sharing and I'm really pleased how it turned out.  I've been a follower of Stephanie's blog for ages and I really love her style, I just wish I had her talent!

I'll be back tomorrow with my Sunday Christmas cards.
