Happy Birthday to Me!

It's my birthday today. Another year older and wiser?! Hmm not sure about the latter. Lol.

Of all the mornings to have a lie in, my kids chose this morning which would have been lovely if I had not woken up at 6.30am and then spent two hours awake waiting for the kids to get up so that I could open my presents.

Peej and I ended up having the funniest game of eye spy I've ever played with some really obscure objects being picked, like C.I.C. being "crack in ceiling" and P.C.C.I.C which was "paint covering crack in ceiling." Then of course there was B.L.T.D.W which was "bedside lights that don't work!" (There is a long story about the bedside lights not working but I won't go into that now. Lol) The fact that we were actually managing to get the answers to these either shows that we are on the same wave length or we're both just as mad as each other? I'm not sure which it is, but it was very funny, well it was to us anyway and it filled in the time until the kids eventually made it out of bed at 8.30am.

I got some great presents and some beautiful handmade cards which I will take photos of tomorrow and post them up for you to see. In the mean time I will share these two cards which I made with free downloads from Papercraft Junkies. This card is made with a Christmas tree download from PCJ's, papers and ribbon by Dovecraft. The cat and mouse stamp is by Sugar Nellie. The card I also did for the Raspberry Ribbons challenge but I was a little late sending it in so I'm not sure if it has made it onto their blog yet or not.

This image is by Debbie Moore and is a free download on PCJ's, I coloured it with Twinkling H2O's and added some Sprinkles to the snow and snowflakes. The patterned paper is some for the Cricut and the Merry Christmas is by Lili of the Valley.
