Getting not very far

I need to do another page for that scrapbook I'm supposed to be making. Unfortunately, no matter how many photos I print off, when I sit down to make a page my mind goes blank and I can't think what to do.
Had a wander into town yesterday and managed to buy a few bits and pieces for Christmas, Most of the adults are now sorted I think, but so far we've only got something for one out of the 7 nieces/nephews, so that's not really going very well. (note to self, ring the parents for ideas....)

Oh no, I've just realised I've got a couple of birthdays mixed up. I thought it was Lisa's today, but have just checked and it was yesterday which means she probably didn't get her card on time. Sorry Lisa, hope you had a lovely day - and the card is on it's way, I promise.
Which also means that it's actually Friend's son's today, not that I've made his card yet anyway as I wasn't planning to go over with it till the w/e anyway. That's on my job list for today.


Just to prove it, this is the card I've made for Lisa. You know the "killed 2 birds with 1 stone" thing - well this time I got THREE! Not only did I make Lisa's card, but I used the lovely Cosmo Cricket papers, ribbons and flowers from Beckie's November kit AND this card meets the criteria for the Daring Cardmakers' "Little Extras" for this week. The challenge was to use the following ingredients:

1 tag

2 different fibres or ribbons

3 different patterned papers

was going to say I recognise that cosmo cricket paper.....hey in terms of the album draw up a few skecthes and repeat the template through out the album, that way its simple but holds the album together well......

Heya Kathy, thanks for stopping by my blog. Had to come check you out of course 0.o Great card and I just loved the waterfall album you did. One lucky person who gets that. It's beautiful, so feminine, love the colour/pattern combination. Would be just too gorgeous with b/w photos I reckon.
I've been seeing a lot of our kiwi chicks doing the card dares. I am not a cardmaker but maybe I should give it a go too! Very inspirational Kathy!

Great card! Just love the waterfall album you made, the colours and pp combinations - YUM. It's so feminine and beautiful. One lucky receiver who gets that. Would look stunning with B&W photos I reckon.
I've noticed a lot of our kiwi chicks doing the card dares. I am not a cardmaker but think your site is very inspirational! Maybe it's time I give it a go too o.0
