12 Days of Christmas - Day 10

More baubbles from Stampin' Up! this set is from Contempo Christmas along with the matching wheel, must say I do love these sets from SU, i have them in the clear set, but they are also available in the wood, but im loving the new style clear sets (although they arent clear stamps, they are still the coloured rubber, but you mount them onto acrylic blocks, i think i may have to get lots more clear sets as i find it so much easier to stamps with them, and once id made 1, had to make a set!
2 more days to go in the 12 cards of Christmas, hope you have been enjoying them as much as i had making them all? See you soon

I do have an excuse!

 Hello all, yes i know i have been away for long time, and i do have a very good reason! My dad has been very poorly and been in hospital for over a week and then out for a week and back in.... very stressful, but fingers crossed he is ok now?
I have been working too, with this month's designs for Crafters Companion and the Downloads of the Month for December. You can download them from the website and i hope you enjoy using them as much as i did designing them.

While Dad was in hospital, it was his birthday, so i made this for him which did cheer him up, and we had a special day for him when he came out, although the staff on the ward were wonderful to him - not just on his birthday but for the entire stay, and i would like to say a huge thankyou to all of them!
He also had to have an operation on his birthday, so not really a special day for him, but he is a trooper and i love him to bits
