r.i.p ash xx

aww, my poor little ratty ash died during the night :( r.i.p ash xx kobe was crying when i told him :( splinter our other rat seems so lonely and depressed now ash has gone.... hoping he perks up abit and gets used to being on his own.

Happy Christmas!!

Well on christmas morning all was quiet...... mummy had to wake everyone up at 6.30 because i couldn't wait anymore!! LOL :)

Eloise wanted suprises.... she got some go go hamsters, littlest pet shop, some craft drawers full of stuff for her to use, games, clothes and much much more too!! :)

Derek was made up with his presents too, he knew most of them but i got him a few things he didn't know about too. We also got a nintendo wii between us aswell :)

I got lots of pj's and slippers to keep me warm and snug and i got some craft stuff too, some stamps, papermania sets and nestabilities :) I picked them all but i'm still happy with them!! :) I also got my nice comfy desk chair so i can sit at my desk to do my cards.

I hope everyone had a fab xmas xx

Been so busy with work & christmas that i havent had chance to do any cards recently :( day off today and i've come up with this for my boyfriend for xmas :)

I've used the sketch

from papertake weekly for their challenge

I'm also entering it into the stampin' chic challenge (thats why i used there papers), i'm also entering it into the stamp with fun challenge as theirs is 'little present' and last but not least the stamp something challenge of 'winter wonderland'.

Working on the kids cards next, not sure what papers to use tho!!

Going on a staff night out tonight to a place in liverpool, a meal, motown singer and a dj, should be a laugh :) quite looking forward to it but not overly looking forward to the food..... im a very fussy eater and theres all odd things i dont like on the menu.
