Well here we are back to Sunday once again where did the week go? The only good thing with the weeks going so quickly is that we will be into spring soon!!! Well I can live in hope!!!  We had a big fall of snow late on Friday afternoon to the point I had to brush it off my car before I could leave for home no joking a good inch and a half had settled, yet we woke up yesterday to nothing and it turned out a beautiful day.  Now it's a lovely morning so far but you never know what it will be like by lunch time, we will just wait and see.
Now I want to thank those who left comments for Beth on her card.  She, I know doubt will have looked at my blog over the weekend and seen them for herself, you should have seen the smile on her face on Friday when I showed her that she had. 4.  I wish I could have shown on here the brilliant power point presentation she had done with her holiday project.  She had the words dancing across the pages, photos of her falling over bouncing on to the page you name it she had done it.  I did think her chocolate project presentation was good but oh boy this one was amazing.  Now Anna on the other hand just hand wrote hers, don't get me wrong I am all for hand written projects and she does put lots into it, but you would expect the 11years old to do the power point one and the 9 year old the hand written one. Beth is one of these little girls that if she enjoys doing something she puts her heart into it, she had so much fun making her mummy's card, but more so she loved using my GC. I had to help as she isn't the biggest of children and turning the handle was hard for her - now she is talking about that a child's cuttlebug would make a good birthday present.
Now my card is just one for my box,

I was playing with the Tonic die that Patricia had let me borrow, I felt that my card didn't need much more on it yet I could use it for different occasions.  I have cut a few of this die out for use later on. But do think I will buy it, will just add it to the list.  Maybe it's just as well I am still working.  
The girls didn't need anything doing at the dentist by the way.  they never do. 
I'd better make a move, the housework won't do its self (if only) and it's ok making cards and using my GC but oh boy you would think there had been a wedding in my spare room.
Take care, wrap up warm and stay safe.

  18. Hi Hazel
    Sorry Im all behind again.
    Love the CASness (its a technical term hahaha!) of this super card. You will have to casually forget to hand back the dies that you like. . . . .don't tell Patricia I said that.
    Best wishes
