Here we are again, another WOYWW Wednesday here. Some peeps are already counting the sleeps until Christmas!!! Well I suppose it is the end of August and soon Christmas will be in the shops!

Talking of which, as you can see from the above photo, I am still in the Christmas mood!  I made a couple of Christmas cards at the weekend and also made some "Thank You" cards too.

Thanks for the glue Julia!!  I don't know why but I was expecting it to be thin runny glue, so when I blobbed a great big blob on my tiny little embellishment I was totally surprised I can tell you. You are right though, it's a great glue and it stuck those Poinsettias on to the cards with ease!

One important thing I forgot to tell you last week you can see in the above photo (sorry it's not very clear!).  I am in print! Yay!  In Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine!!!  They asked me to send in some photos of my cards and I chose a few and they decided on these two - the one I made for the lovely Gill for her and hubbies Wedding Anniversary and one I made with my gorgeous Magnolia stamp.

As I was the "Star Letter" I won £50 worth of crafting items!!!! Yes £50!!!  I received in the post a huge parcel containing loads of pads of DCWV (I think that's how it's spelt!). Gorgeous shapes and colours, all wonderful and will be using some of them soon!!!!!

Keep an eye out as I'll be posting the Wedding Cards soon along with a few of the Christmas ones too.
