Ho! Ho! and ... erm ... Ho!

There I was ... with red bits and everything ... re-booking another waxing session on Friday afternoon ... Four weeks time I says ... that will be the week before Christmas says the waxing lady! OMG ... seriously ... FOUR WEEKS ... How did that happen??? Who moved it??? Surely last Christmas was only about six months ago???
So people ... if I sound like I am in a state of panic ... well I am ... that means I will have to go shopping and everything!
So it's more like Ho! Ho! Hum! than Ho!Ho! Ho! for me!
Anyways ... I say this year has gone fast ... but the last three months have dragged in other ways ... Today is my 3 month of not smoking anniversary ... Woo Hoo ... oh yes people ... three months ... I certainly never thought I would get here! I am now off the patches and relying on the odd piece of Nicotine Gum and the occassional losenge! In fact ... In fact ... I may be addicted to NRT now ... oops! That was a joke ... I am sure I am not ... well sort of sure :0)
I had a lovely day on Saturday teaching with a great group of ladies ... I even got time to play too with my new Lord Tim of Holtz Movers and Shapers! You know Tim ... the man that can feed 5000 with just a packet of McCoy's Cheese and Onion Crisps and a Cadbury's Flake while sculpting every individual Snowflake with just a splodge of Distress Stickles and a Pokey Tool.
Right ... back to the job in hand ... it's Monday and it's time for Simon Says Stamp and Show ... there is a $50 Shopping Spree up for grabs donated by the super duper people at Simon Says Stamp  and all you need to do is come up with something that fits in with the theme of tickets and go and enter it over here!
Just in case you were wondering ... I have used Fired Brick Distress Stain ... Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a spritz of Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist to colour my ATC's! The script and Holly are indeed THE Wendy Vecchi Stamps.
I must away ...
Laters!

I'm another one who has made no move towards Christmas prep except to check all our outdoor Christmas lights with Hubby this weekend. It took us about 4 hours!!!!! As for cards and pressies ....... zilch so far, eeek!

Love your Christmassy offerings on here Linda. Love that reindeer!

These are lovely Linda. Really warm and erm, seasonal. CONGRATS on being a non-smoker. Hope you feel a lot better for it and VERY smug. You should.

Linda...your ATCs are so lovely. I love the backgrounds you stamped and inks and the tickets are a perfect contrasting accent to each one! <3 Candy

Great job on these - love them! (I packed up the smokes nearly 8 years ago - hard work but beleive me it's worth the effort! If nothing else you'll have more cash for crafty stash!!!!! Good Luck.)
