thank you to everyone and  there kind comments last week on my birthday. It feels like I haven't posted anything for such a long-time even though its not even been a week yet!  I usually post at the weekend but didn't get the opportunity to ....having too much fun I reckon !
I've Spent a lot of time over the weekend playing with my wonderful birthday goodies and have been very very productive! I've finished both my husband and daughters Christmas cards which where the last two to do. sorry I can’t post my daughters until she has received it, she is my IT expert and blogger fixer so would see it, My hubby's is the one I've posted today...im really pleased with how it turned out. Both of their birthday cards are also well underway as well , HB’s birthday is in December and daughter’s is not until January…so I'm well ahead. I've made loads more Christmas of tags; definitely now i've made up for my lack of time spent in the craft room over the last couple of weeks and cured my withdrawals.
' Letter to Santa '
I used my copics and several of my new die cuts to make this card. I've went a bit OTT but happy with the overall look. I'm really happy with my Copics  although I will still use my Promarkers as I know the colours better and have more of them to choose from,  I have mixed both for some of tags I made  and they work fine together too. I'm off on a little blog hop and I've some tags I also want to post...maybe later tonight. Have a wonderful week and hope you are warm and cosy... lots of hugs...x
