... and happy Sunday to you all too.
I've been so busy with scrapping that I went looking through my stash for what I thought would be something quick and easy to make for the last Rudolph Day challenge of the year over at Sarn's blog - Stamping For Pleasure.
However, it was a case of think again, Elizabeth!!! The card comes in kit form from Papermania and looked as though it should have been a doddle to make, but not so! I got it wrong almost from the outset. Everything came with the kit, even some extra materials were included, so that wasn't the problem. No, the problem was that there were no instructions. Oh, and me not thinking how would be the best way to put it together first :(
Happily, with a bit of taking apart and starting again, I got there in the end, and I'm sure my two youngest grandchildren will enjoy opening the doors as they countdown to the big day ... you can't see that but the 25th is inside, as is Santa :)
And whilst I think about Advent, when did the Christmas become a 2 month event - starting at the beginning of November, immediately after Halloween. I've been seeing Christmas trees, Christmas decorations, aisles of Christmas goodies and display for weeks, and now shopping is done to a neverending Christmas themed soundtrack. When I was a child the festivities didn't start until the last week before school broke up for the holiday - so just a week or two before Christmas Day. And then, a few decades later, it didn't begin until a day or two after my birthday at the end of November. I still feel I should be able to have my birthday first ... it seems only fair! Bah! Humbug! :))
It's back to the scrapping ... some of my old summer holiday pics are waiting to be scrapped. Though, as I have just discovered the Christmas 24 movie channel and all my crafting is being done to wall-to-wall feel-good films, maybe I'm catching that Christmas cheer, so much so, perhaps I ought to be making Christmas themed pages instead ... no, next month will be soon enough :)
Take care my crafty friends and happy crafting,
