IT'S THE FINAL!.....................................

Morning all!

Yep I'm mega early today!, I'm off to my in-laws for lunch today so no cooking for me yippee! Also I have the whole week off to finish all my Xmas shopping and to send off those dreaded Xmas cards too lol! It is also my kids birthday's this week, yep you did read that right, It's both George and Rebecca's birthday's this week and yes it was awful planning on my part lol ( well February is rather chilly hehehe!). So this time of year is always very hectic in the Bailey household and plus it's my Stepdad Bill, Sis Toni and brother-in-law John's b'day too in December, so things are very expensive lol!

And did you watch Strictly and X-factor? I'm definitely on team Kara and Artem but Pamela and James was fantastic too. And what about X-Factor!, Matt was just brilliant and One Direction were fab too, no surprises with Cher going, even tho' she didn't look very surprised, does she know something we don't???

Right enough waffle as I have got to get ready ( we have a 2 hour drive grrrrrr!). This card is again for Bexx and it's from her big brov George, and no he didn't make it lol! I have used another fab image from DigiStamp Boutique and teamed it up with some fab papers from BasicGrey "Kioshi" paper pad. Nice and simples this card, just how I like them :o)

This cutie is going into the following challenges :-
The Sweetshop # SSS86 ~ Fab Sketch
CYDA # 10 ~ Punch it out!
DigiStamp Boutique ~ December Competition

Hi Vicky

Another lovely make with lots of gorgeous layers and elements. Of course the best bit is the heart LOL!!!

Lucky you .. .. no cooking .. .. but don't forget that means you have to wash up!!

I am just making a huge pan of homemade soup to feed the label day troops. Soup and hot bread rolls will keep them going until tonight when we are going to have a Chinese takeaway with the final!!

What on earth are we going to watch next week LOL!!

It is my hubby's birthday this week - must get his card done!!! Eeek!!!

Cher said in an interview earlier in the day that she knew she wouldn't win .. .. she will be signed up by somene (if she hasn't been already). I do like her. In fact I thought the Black Eyed Pea man did a better performance with her this week than he did last week with his proper folk!!

Love Jules xx

Another gorgeous card - love the image and papers. Lucky you having this week off hope your children have great birthdays. I feel I could do with a week off to get ready for Christmas. I have Wednesdays off but last Wednesday I had the plumber round to replace our central heating pump and this weekend I have had the inlaws round so no crafting or Christmas shopping. Getting very worried about the Christmas shopping now - think will have to go out in evenings! Enjoy your week off. Sarahxx
