I have copied my sketch from Moving Along with the Times which is this:

Anyone found a bug?

My bug that is?! If so, give it a BIG kick up the bum and send it home... I have cards needing to be done...!

Woohoo I am back!

I have been awol for a while, but now I am back, with a new laptop! :)

My old one had died so I sold it on Ebay and put the money I got towards this brand spanking new one! Anyway, I have some bits to show you as promised in my post the other day!

Here are some Snowman Soups I have made. Its just basically hot chocolate with chocolate chips and marshmellows, I just have to make some labels with a poem on. I got this idea from Money Saving expert again, they have some really good ideas on there!

Next are a few cards I done, made to order. I did have more to show but I forgot to take a photo of them as I was in a bit of a rush to get them sorted (Friend is going to Thailand tommorrow and she needed them before she left - there was 7 in total!).

These are only some of them! And next, is an addition to my mums Christmas hamper, something which I couldnt resist!

He isnt chocolate, but as her hamper has a fudge and chocolate theme, I couldnt not buy him!
