it's nearly Christmas!!

today was the Christmas festival in Durham. It was extremely busy and crowded but the best bit was my two boys singing carols. The Youth Theatre they go to was singing carols to entertain the crowds but also to raise money for their next production (fame in April). I love listening to children singing and carols are especially fab! they ranged from 9 (my ds2!) to about 18. I did take some pics of them singing but they all have at least one other child in the background so can't put them on here.

look at the kittens' new toy!

Tams rang me last week and said they had a cat scratching post they didn't want and were going to put on freecycle but would we like it? We were thinking of getting one so I said yes please. I arranged to go and pick it up and it's a good job a emptied the boot before I went - it is huge (3 1/2 feet tall)! the kittens absolutely love it and that is where they choose to sleep. So a very big thank you Tams and Paul xx

my first challenge entry!

This is the first card I have entered into a challenge! I have decided to enter it for the Project Tuesday challenge (thanks Craftygranny for the info) which this week is to make an easel card. Since I have made quite a few I thought it was an appropriate challenge for my first! I even made a brand new one especially!! This is for a friend - I won't say who cos she won't have received it yet!

The biggest challenge is linking the card to the Project Tuesday blog!! Thanks Flourgirl and craftygranny for the info on how to do this - fingers crossed it will work!
