Days disappearing

Ok, so where are all the days disappearing too? Can't believe it's already Thursday, that can't be right, surely? Someone must have sneaked in and stolen some days away from me.

Busy being busy finishing off projects for the October Bubbly Funk Kit - and I'll let you into a little secret here - this one is a bit out of the ordinary. And that's all I'm going to say.
For now.


I got my uncle's birthday card made on time, and in the post on time. But did it arrive on time? It did not. So I'm not best-pleased with the Royal Mail, just hope it arrives today.

Anyway, here's the card
The papers are from the Basic Grey Periphery paper pad. I cut the letters on the Robo, cutting them a couple of times in card and then again in the paper and sticking them together to give a chipboard effect
Going back to the Bubbly Funk Cyber Crop at the weekend, the second of my classes was all about trees. This first card was made using the new Cuttlebug Cut & Emboss Christmas Tree set which is lovely.

But my class was about making our own tall skinny Christmas trees - and lots of them, using really basic stuff; just paper, card, onks and a bit of glitter glue to bling things up a bit.
This is my cheaop, quicko version of the first one:

And using more of the trees I'd already cut I made these

Here are a couple more "Thank You" cards (and no, I've not forgotten the blog candy....)
Lastly for now - if you've not seen the latest "Little Extra" over on the DCM blog - then do go and see what Lythan challenged herself to do this week. I think it was quite brave of her but she's pulled it off brilliantly and made a fabulous set of cards. Me, I'd have got diverted after...oooh....one card!
Well done Lythan, you're a star!
