Christmas continues...

Morning folks...the weather didn't play ball yesterday....brief blinks of sunshine in between torrential rain so it was a crafty day with the Cubbyhole Crew covered in glitter and knee deep in Christmas stuff but it looks like I am not the only one whose thoughts have turned to that magical time of the year...the lovely girls at The Ribbon Girl are launching a range of Mini Ribbon Kits in Red Orange Green Fuschia Black Aqua and of course Christmas...if you would like to win one of the Christmas Mini Kits...all you have to do is pop over HERE and leave a comment with a link to your own blog...the winner will be chosen at random on Sunday 17th July.
The Hero Arts Demo cards will be finished today barring any major disasters...well there certainly won't be any of the coffee spillage variety because the Cubbyhole Health & Safety boffins have been sticking their noses in where they're not wanted...laying down the law...the cubbyhole is now out of bounds to any kind of liquid refreshment...obviously they don't know that crafting and coffee go hand in hand. And guess who else is getting on my wick...yes you've got it in one...Mr Blogger's new Dashboard is slowly driving me up the pole and round the bend...scheduling posts is a hit or a miss and with no chance of a calm-me-down cuppa unless I trip off to the kitchen...I am definitely in Mrs Grumpy Knicker mode...perhaps it's time to remind these guys who's the BOSS around here.
I promise this will be the last of the Hero Arts sneaky peeks.....

and before I put on my Fiskars Hat again with even more Christmas projects...I'm going to have a play today with this month's Ribbon Girl DT kit ready for the brand new Colour Challenge on the 17th.

  3. A lovely sunny morning here in York, hope it is the same for you and Buddy. Sneak peaks for Christmas, well it isn't that far really. Kids here finish for summer break next week and then it isn't long when they go back that they are pracising for christmas plays and concerts. Have a great day both of you. Denise & Meg XX

  4. So Kath,...How many more sleeps until Christmas???

  5. Hi Kath, More sneaky peaks! Can't wait to see more.

    Hope the weather is kind, what better excuse to sit in the sun and enjoy your coffee.

  6. Oh dear Mrs Grumpy Knickers . . . I think you should lay off the caffeine and perhaps try a nice Hot Chocolate with cream and marshmallows on top. That's BOUND to make you feel better!

    Hugs, Sandra

  7. Bang goes my idea for a guessing game! Christmas will be here before we know........... perhaps we're going to skip summer after all.

  8. can't wait to see all these Hero Arts cards in the flesh - the sneaky peeks look fantastic.
    Think I'm going to lock my kids in the living room with the wii so I can get on with my stuff

  9. You're truly in the christmas mood !! I hope we'll see a bit more of your cards, than just the sneeks ;O)

  10. Hi Kath, I'm enjoying the sneaky peeks of the Christmas cards. I've managed to make a few Christmas cards recently so I'm hoping to be inspired when you show the cards for real!

    We were luckier than you yesterday because the rain didn't come here and I got my washing dried...thank goodness.
