Oh, there you are!

I've had my head down and been busy! Good grief, I don't like it. And no-one sent me a fit fireman - although several people implied that they'd happily keep one amused for a while.A very revealing post that turned out to be!
So instead of showing myself up and complaining about doing stuff that I've been putting off for oh, years, here's a Christmas card that proves that I can work in advance. Sometimes! It fits the criteria for Susie & Vicki's Christmas Club challenge, so get me! It was made for last week's workshop, April Fool we called it, and decided to make it unseasonal.
The stamp is from a set of 'branches' by Artemio -I made this card with the other stems - you probably remember, I just wanted to show what great value this set is, in my opinion.
If you stamp, you probably need it.
Jan wanted to thank you for positive responses to her bags. I know that reads badly, but if you read my last post, you'll understand completely. Jan is busy sewing as I type and will happily take orders. The little dolly bags are £3.50 and the totes will be £5 - email me via the button in the right margin, I'll put you in touch!
Public service announcements over, I must get on, I'm a really busy person today doncha know!

I stamp... not very well though. I never get lovely images like that. Maybe I should practise more ;)

Lyn said...

Excellent prices for those glorious bags, but I notice you don't quote for your decorated pegs ......?

I'm not even going to mention the *C* card, however impressed I am on this glorious sunny day - grrrrrrrrr!

Mummylade said...

you should send an official complaint! Everyone should be entitled to a fit fireman!! ;)

I'm not much of a stamper, but I like THESE stamps. Of course, I love trees, especially at Christmastime.

Sounds like a great money raiser in those little bags.
