Forgive Me Father ...

SSSa1912 For I have sinned ... it has been 144 hours since my last Blog Post! In fact ... I think that may be the longest ever gap between blog posts that I have ever ever had!

I have been busy ... like most of you I guess ... putting Crimbo decorations up ... buying Crimbo pressies ... wrapping Crimbo pressies ... writing Crimbo cards ... actually ... erm ... I have n't actually written any Crimbo Cards yet ... Oops!

Of course unlike most of you ... I do have Dan staying ... and he can be soooo demanding :0)

Anyways ... Back to the matter in hand ... it is indeed Monday ... which means it is time for a new theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show ... this week the theme is Something from Yesteryear ... so I took a chunky 5" canvas and distressed it using lots of Lord Tim of Holtz papers ... and embellishments and inks ... you know Tim ... the man that can accurately forecast the weather for the entire universe while keeping the nation's roads free from snow with just a single fragment charm and a doodad!SSS1912

The wonderful site sponsor ... Simon Says Stamp has indeed donated another $50 gift voucher and this challenge will run for two weeks ... so do join in if you can!

I must get on ... weather and roads permitting ... I have lots of crafty friends coming to lunch ... it is our fourth annual Christmas dinner ... always a good day with food ... and presents ... and food and ... erm ... more presents and more food ... you get the gist right????

Laters!

You're forgiven but we've missed you. Have a lovely day today - if your crafty friends can get through the snow - and home again later - you may have them for Christmas!! (Now that would be fun...) Love this canvas, by the way, it is gorgeous.
