The Ugly Card Does Christmas and other Stuff!

UC1

Yes ... there is such a thing! The ugly card is gradually making it's way around the world. It started off here and has been to several different countries and has made public appearances on several different blogs before reaching Cambridge in the UK. The idea is that you take pictures when it reaches you ... blog about it ... and then ask for volunteers to take it next ... they then do the same thing and who knows ... maybe in a hundred years time or so ... it will be famous! BF1e1312

I have attached some piccies of the ugly card doing Christmas ... we had our annual crafty Christmas dinner yesterday ... I say we ... I mean the usual suspects ... lots of laughter ... eating ... drinking ... chatting ... cracker pulling ... presents ... and erm ... presents! A fab time was had by all!

BF11312 I am always so full of Mojo ... and erm ... chocolate after spending the day with such creative people that I went straight up to my craft room last night and started making some little tree decorations ... Yes ... I finally got the tree up ... I rather like them ... they are really simple and quick to make ... which suits most of us at this time of year me thinks! If you want to know how I made them ... you can read all about it on the Bubbly Scrumptious blog!UC

All that remains for me to say is if you would like to help the ugly card along it's journey ...  please just put "Ugly card" in the comments and I will pick a winner ... I choose this term loosely ... it aint pretty ... then you can blog and post and so on ... don't worry full instructions come with the card. Thank you to Cath for choosing me :0)

Have a great week people!
