Hi everyone, it's just been so busy the last few days that I've not found the time to make a card to share. I have made a couple of DT projects but can't share them yet . We've had Mum's Birthday, our new SIL's birthday, a Christmas family get together at my husband's cousins. Church today and then I took my DIL to the craft shop. She is going to be making her brother's wedding invites. She wanted to use some embossing and was thinking of buying a machine. I didn't think she would get the use out of a new one (she doesn't craft much) so I sold her mine for a reasonable price, I had spare plates and also the embossing mats. I'd been thinking of buying another Cuttlebug for a while now so while we were at the craft shop I purchased a new one. When I bought mine it came with all the plates including the "C" plate which you now have to buy separately!!! I decided to buy the longer plates as well as I have a couple of the long dies and it will make it easier to use them.. I asked the girl at the shop whether all the plates came with the machine and she said "yes" I dropped DIL home and then came back here, unpacked it and that's when I discovered that there was no "C" plate. I rang my friend, Fran to see if she wanted to come with me and then went back to the shop to purchase the plate. They had a class going on and quite a few customers I looked around and couldn't find one and they were so busy that we ended up ringing the other store they own and then travelling up there to buy it!!! I saw a card up there that had a nutcracker soldier image on it but they didn't have the paper but we were told the first store had it. LOL, we stopped there on the way back home to buy it. So.... three trips to one shop and one to the other in one day and I wasted several hours just to buy myself a new Cuttlebug!
We had tea at Fran and Kim's and then we went to a Carol's Service at a local church, It started at 9 p.m. and finished about 9.30. We went back to Fran's for coffee and chatted and then back home.
Well that's been my busy day, housework tomorrow and babysitting the 3 grandies and then a choir rehearsal, It's going to be a crazy week!!!
So goodnight, see you next week.
