......really! December?? Already??? Just to cheer us all up after that thought, here is a totally gratuitous picture of my Sid:
Yep! I've sold my soul. Only to Stampin' Up you understand! Me, Mum and Meryl (my lovely sister) had a great afternoon doing a dress rehearsal for my 1st proper demo next week! Mum and Meryl made 4 cards each and they were beautiful!

I was surprised at how exhausting it was! But thoroughly enjoyed my crafty weekend!!
Thanks for looking!
