Back at last and a new challenge

Whoop whoop, can you tell I am excited that I have finally arrived in the land of blog. Seven weeks after move in day I have internet , you wouldn't believe how much I missed it.
Anyway here is my DT card for the new challenge over at Sarah Hurley challenges and this week its my fabulous friend Mel who is our host. Mel has chosen the easel cards as our theme which I know we all love so please join in if you can.

Here's my take on the challenge but remember you don't have to use any of Sarah's products it's all about having fun!!

papers & topper- Christmas cheer cd
snowflakes- Daisy and Dandelion ( birthday present from Mel)
pearls & flowers- wild oechid crafts
tools- CB stars embossing folder, Spellbinders nestie, corner punch
Cardstock- The Paper Mill

I am so full of surprises today can't believe it's November and this is my first christmas card this year. My new year resolution to start in January went awol... maybe next year lol.
Secondly my DT card was made from scraps not through choice as can't find printer cable and didn't realise there was no ink argh!!

And finally I actually used my very neglected small corner punch and it was all thanks to my recent nestie purchase at the SEC in Glasgow.

I had a ball and it was shared with my truley scrumptious friend Susie. The morning was spent at the craftshow stopping for some lunch and finally heading into town for a couple of cocktails in TGI Fridays. It was a day of tears,laughter,food,alcohol,great friendship and of ofcourse craft shopping....a perfect day!!

Hopefully we can make it again next year but this time I will need a budget for craft goodies and coctails lol

That's all from me today but will def be back soon promise!!
