75 days 'till christmas

Hehehe, check out my haul! I went to the craft expo in Melbourne yesterday and shopped until i nearly dropped! i was so excited about my new purchases after showing a very patient and loving partner, who had spent the day looking after the children (who are little angels for him, so it is not really too big a deal), all my purchases i proceeded to spread them out across the floor to take pictures for my blog. This behaviour received rolled eyes, as you can imaging, but i was very excited. My most exciting purchase were the cuttlebug embossing folders as i do not have a cuttle bug machine... but i had an idea. What i do have is one of those huge red sizzix machines with a converter, so i figured if i was gentle i could use them in there. after this pic was taken i tore open one of the packets and went to try it....SUCCESS! yippi, so stay tuned for some cuttlebug/sizzix magic :)
Anyways, enough waffling (thanks Kellie, great word) here is a little something i whipped up last week and only today got around to taking photos of (blush) this is another one of my new motivet stamps. It is fairly overcast today so they have not come out as clearly as i would have liked, but the weather has been a bit dodgy all week so i will have to make do i guess.
The colouring of the image comes out better in this shot without the flash
With this card I have played along with
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in October, and
Creative Card Crew - It's a celebration (what better reason for celebration is there than Christmas... OK i will concede new baby trumps Christmas, but only just :))
