My youngest one, who is unbelievably going into HIGH SCHOOL next year (how old do I feel?) attended her dinner dance tonight. I can't believe how grown up she looked ... sniff sniff.
Can someone please slow the world down, it is going way too fast for me!

There are 14 stops on the blog hop, but don't worry if you are starting here because you can just continue around in a full circle so you won't miss out on anyone's blog! All you have to do is click the Swap Hop Button at the bottom of my post and you will continue onto the next stop which is Patrice's blog.
And here is the card that I made for the swap (if you are a regular visitor to my blog it may look familiar to you).
Stamps: Take a Sip
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Love Letters DSP
Ink: basic black, riding hood red

I just wanted to say thankyou for all of the wonderful comments that were left when I shared some of my girls you tube videos on my blog recently. Neither of them have had any formal singing lessons but they have a huge love of music and they really appreciate your words of encouragement.
So on that note I thought I would share a quick one that Madi had me record tonight. It is the new Taylor Swift song "Mean" from her latest album. And I am so proud of her for taking what is quite a boppy country song and doing her own acoustic arrangement of it. I really love it and so I hope you enjoy it too!

I did this last year and found it very helpful. So I thought I would share this with you in case it is something you may find useful as well. And please feel free to share any great organisational ideas that you have because I am always looking for good ideas that will make me a little more efficient! lol
Anyway, all I really do is gather all of my Christmas supplies together in one place so that while I am working on my cards I don't have to go searching for different bits & pieces. In addition to the little tray (which is from Ikea in case you were wondering) I also have my stash of Christmas papers, rubons, embossing folders and punches etc in a box next to it so they are also within easy reach.
In this tray I have stamps, ribbons, buttons, embellishments, glitter, little bells etc.
