What date is Christmas exactly...?


Morning Peeps :)


Well, with Sweet Cheeks birthday done and dusted, (thanks so much for all the messages, he had a luuuurverly day. So much so, he got up at 5am yesterday to ask if it was 'still his birthday today'?!) I'm prepared to acknowledge that Christmas is, erm, coming. 

Now, I don't want to panic you, but you know it's this month, right? Of course, everything in The House of Fluff is under control. I am not worried, and feel confident that the three Christmas cards I've made so far, will be enough. I'll write a list in a week or so, just to check...
 
Don't tell anyone, but I have a suspicion I might be cutting it a bit fine. But. I have a cunning plan. It's gonna take about a year or so to work...

I've joined the Design Team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin. Whoot! (Feels a bit like going home, as I was on the very first DT at Sweet Stampin.) Why's that super clever on my part? Well, it means I get have to make one Christmas card each month, so, about this time next year, when I write my post, admitting that perhaps Christmas is in EEEEEEEEEK days, I'll have twelve cards instead of three. See what I've done there? Aren't you just amazed by the way my brain works? Yeah, me too!

Of course, because you've done the majority of your Christmas cards already, you'll be looking for a Christmas Challenge to enter just for fun. Head over to Christmas at Sweet Stampin. Our first Challenge is Anything Goes, (as long as it's Christmassy!) and you can meet all the Christmas Sweeties. We have prizes from Funky Kits and Letraset and you have all month to get your entries in.

Now, where did I put that notebook...

Gosh Fluff, another DT! Another congrats from me! And this one is going to be a great DT because you will get into the swing of making Christmas cards at any ol' time (not just after SC's b'day) and before you know it you will have enough of them!!!And this one is lovely! Great snow. Great man. And pefectly flakey! Lesley
