catching up

Can't believe I haven't updated since August!!!
Wedding invites and card orders are keeping me busy and I've done a few more LO's for Alisons scrapbook.
I love her eyes in this picture, but it really doesn't look like her - kind of spooky!

I got a huge Cosmo Cricket kit today and I had already started this " Love that smile" LO and changed everthing when the kit arrived. I love it - it is packed with so much goodies.

Card swap time on Celtic Crafters and this months theme was (my fav) chocolate.
Luckily I had a Jolees box of chocs sticker to hand and this was my card sent to Karina:

I went MAD buying stuff this month. Mainly from QVC, and Mad About Cards. I got a giant card kit from QVC. The kit comes with material to make 20 cards (but lots of stuff left over to make more) I just loved this kit. All the cards are 3D and I have just 4 more left to make. Just have to work out how much to sell them for.
They are HUGE. They start off at A3 and are half that when folded. Thankfully they come with envelopes - just have to find poly bags that big. This is one of them...the monkey is 3D and with adding a brad, he also swings.

Great news this month about Dad, his latest CT scans show that the cancer on his liver has lessened and his Docs are well pleased - as we all are. He got a welcomed break from chemo, but is now back on his treatment. So, fingers crossed, it will continue to bring the same great results.
