It's a little odd for me to be posting on a tuesday! but that's my day off this week, i'm in till christmas eve! do you have snow where you are? i'm feeling a little left out in my part of the UK, some places have lots it's been trying to snow all week yet it's all gone and not even so much as a snowflake has settled yet it's so very cold out!
As you can see i've used one of Krista Smith's gorjuss saturated canary images....
This was actually an ordered card from my mum! she wanted a 21st birthday card for her friend at work she works with... all i got told is she liked witches and she was talking about some burning rain of death (part of a film or something) so i tried my best to incorprate that! lol

Have a lovely day all i'm off to get some rest and chill out for the day!
I thought i'd do a Smash* update as so many of you are asking and e-mailing me nagging to show more of my book! yep it's true i've got about 7 pages left to do of my blue folio so i've a few piccys to show this morning! I'll keep updating this next week so watch out for more Smash* posts from me as they'll be coming quick as i've really knuckled down and smash*ed my heart out this past month!! hehe addicted well and truly!!
First up is my opening page!! all about me, random facts piccy of me in wedding dress (that'll be the only time you'll ever see me in a dress) lol!
Inside page now, this was orignally green so i covered it with some really cool bo bunny grid papers that i had in my stash sorry the name escapes me for now! just a little intro into what my blue folio is all about (me if ya hadn't guessed lol)
I must admit this page scared me a little so that's why there's not much on it but i wanted it to be simple! hehe
My next two pages are all about happiness, being happy is important to me! so naturally i had to smash it!!!
Off for a cat power nap!

Well it's true! that christmas is really on it's way!!!
Take it from me! i feel for anyone who works in retail espech supermarkets! so darn busy at the moment i fear it's only gonna get worse! I feel so zombiefied at the moment it's hard work this working nights buisness you'd think like after 4 years of doing it i'd be used to it! oh gosh nope!!! always tired! i don't know how i have time to breathe with my busy life hehe!
I wanted to get back into blogging as i've had scheduled posts and things set up but feel like i've not really blogged properly for a few weeks so i'm here this morning with a Christmassy creation!!! yay!!!
Now how darn cute is he???! his name's Chester!!! i have a lil story to tell... so here goes... i had some paypal pennies left from my selling on ebay that i thought i'd treat myself, so sat through ebay thinking what could i possibly buy??? burns a hole even on paypal haha!!! when i thought ooo i better read my magazines first as it's typical i spend then see something in a mag that i want and no pennies left.... i came across a page featuring lots of different digi's, me i'm not really a digi person... well i have been these last few weeks i tell ya! the bugs certainly biting! in particular i saw this cute little monkey!!!! so headed off to pollycraft's online shop!
Then i saw 100 digi's for 9.99!! omg!!! how could i resist that i mean com'on that's a fantastic price, and i so couldn't resist i mean i've got lots of pollycraft stamps and they're so lovely to colour so i thought yeah why not.... then i came across mr chester the monkey up there!! how can i not buy him sooooo cute! then i saw the non christmas collection too so yeah you know where my story's going! i spent all my paypal pennies on digi's but oooo i do love him he's my fav stamp i think i've seen in a long while!!!
So here's i am this morning with my christmas chester card!!! it is actually for the Pollycraft Monday Challenge which there theme for the next 4 weeks is Christmas Fun! so naturally i feel a more than one card being entered here with all these new digi's ive brought!!! hehe
