So, I'm the Bad Blogger in the title - there's a surprise, NOT!
I really need to make more of an effort to keep up with my blog. I've been rubbish at keeping things moving on here and must do better!
It's Little Extra day over on The Daring Cardmakers and I'll get to that later, but first as I failed dismally to update the WaffleBlog over the weekend with pictures of my latest mini-book project as I'd intended I'm going to do that now.

The back of the book looks like this
The theme for this week's DCM Little Extra is
Baubles, Bells and Bows
Another chance to get some Christmas cards made. I think I've got about 65 in my box now, but I still need to make some more if I'm to have enough just for us to send this year.
I've done a few for this challenge and hopefully will get a few more done too - even if they are all pretty similar!
This is the one that's on the DCM blog today
stash used includes: DCWV Christmas stack, offcuts of Bazzill card, glitter card, buttons and ribbons
I addded some Krylon squiggles to make the background less dull.
Here are some of the other "baubles" themed cards I've been making using BG Dasher and Fruitcake papers, and the Holly collection from Crate Papers. The bauble decoration is a Bosskutz die
