Quick post -busy day !

I thought I would do a quick post this morning. I've been up early and have been a very busy beaver doing the housework only hoovering, ironing and bed changing left!...then hopefully some time to spend in the craft room once I've finished...I'm having major withdrawals. I had until yesterday had this weekend and Monday off work but unfortunately staff sickness has put and end to that and I need to go back to work tomorrow... hopefully I will get Thursday off next week unless something else happens...and a weekend off in a few weeks time...that will be bliss, anyway that's enough of my grumbling! I have several Christmas cards still to share from previous weeks, today I've chosen a traditional design using the Heartfelt Creation Stamps; which I am certainly making good use of...Isn't he a fat little robin! When I go the stamps I went a bit stamping and colouring mad, this has meant that I had several images all ready to go and as I've kept the designs and layouts quite simple I have more finished cards...which means I'm well ahead with my christmas cards despite no crafty time over the last few weeks

Christmas Robin
