Hi Everybody,

I hope you are having a good weekend and are ready for the predicted storm that is supposed to be over the UK today.I hope you are all as cosy as Ruby and I with our lovely log burner going merrily away in the lounge. After we have done our chores we are going to settle down this evening and watch some TV

Does that paint a lovely picture for you ??  Here's the reality of it ... Ruby  doesn't watch telly and when the log burner is going she takes herself off to the bedroom where its cooler. So she's not much company. But she comes down every so often to check if I am still there and gives me the guilt trip look to go up and watch TV in the bedroom.

Still the draw for the Stamps, Dies and embossing folder from yesterday has been done and the winner this week is ...

Chris Wilson
could you email your postal address please to
and I will get it sent off to you straight away.

Please let me know that you have it safely and I really hope you will enjoy playing with it ... 
all year round

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Congrats Chris! Big Happy Dance for you. This was a very generous gift! I hope you show us something you've made from it.

    Good Morning Christina :) I got a chuckle from your post. I have enjoyed five fur babies in my life and each one has had a different personality of their own ~ just like people. And they definitely have likes and dislikes. It truly is amazing at times isn't it. Enjoy your day with your Little One, whichever room you wind up in to watch a little telly. (As an American, I've always enjoyed that word "telly". I don't know why ~ it's just... fun.) Hugs. xo

  2. Well done Chris, I bet your log fire is so cozy Christina it’s a pity there’s nothing good on the telly lately, and I can’t get back into my crafting lol, take care love Anne Owens xx

  3. Enjoy Chris. Maybe next time for me Christina xxx

  4. Congratulations Chris, you finally got your wish come true.
    Enjoy your cozy space during the storm Christina.

    Much affection,
    Christine XX

  5. I was so excited when I opened the email this morning and found that I had actually won Christina weekly free gift, I am sure it will come in very handy for my Christmas cards this year, I will be eager to make an early start on them. Just goes to show you that you have to keep trying and eventually it pays off.

  6. Good Morning Christina. And CONGRATULATIONS CHRIS. I love the thought of being cosy with your log burner and Ruby of course. Enjoy today indoors away from this terrible weather. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

  7. Am laughing at Ruby taking herself off to a cooler part of the house and then "guilting" you … dogs know exactly how to get to us, don't they. My little dog turns those huge spaniel eyes on, and what can I do, but give in to whatever he feels he can't live without !! lol !!
