Sweet Greetings

Just a quick hello and a few sweet ramblings for the holidays.

Do you like the Gingerbread houses, one is paper and the other is tasty :) frosting yummy

The small children in our house have been given a kit to build, I think its Tesco's but it will keep for Christmas Eve and there are going to be needing something to calm them down by then.

All my family are now safe at home, as I hope yours are too, the older girls have returned from uni/college and a full house is a manic house. My own Christmas fairy visited yesterday and set and decorated my table ready for dinner on Friday, along with a yummy box of Tablet ( sweet Scottish toffee), which I have had to hide from the children.

The snow is melting we had two days of the white stuff. A hello to Dorothy in Canada, where it is colder than the north pole in places, wrap up warm my Canadian friends and enjoy it while it lasts.

For our Dutch friends we have an extra sweet surprise for you in the New Year, not long now and we will show off our new range and some of you already guessed, yes its digi.

We are keen to see how many digi users there are out there and have no intention of stopping rubber, its just over and above what we already do, moving with the times.
All digi designs will be new and available instantly, I think that is the pull of digi, we have so many international customers who have to wait sometimes weeks for a packet that we are hoping they like an instant sugar fix. More news on that later.

It's Christmas week, are you ready? It comes every year but ever year I no where near ready. I am sure that whatever has been done is more than enough, is there such a thing as the perfect Christmas?

Those gingerbread houses are gorgeous! And digi stamps - well, yes please! Us Brits are just as impatient, even though we only have to wait a day or 2 for our sugar fix! Anyway, just wanted to pop on here and wish you and all the sugababes a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hugs, Sem x

Merry Christmas, everybody!

Gorgeous projects! I know the kids will have fun. Glad everyone is home safe and sound for Christmas -- and yes, I agree, we do set our expectations so high that nothing ever seems perfect. In retrospect though, they all are with glitches and all.

I'm excited to hear about your digis coming soon. I will always love rubber but the instant gratification is a huge draw!

cute hoosies Karen
can't wait to see the digi's - they are so handy when you get very little notice to make a card and you don't have just the right stamp at hand.
have a super xmas and new year

Love the tasty option of gingerbread house. My four children made one these in kit form the xmas we spent in Florida 2002, it was before we started having them here and oh the fun they had, forget disney lets just build edible houses lol.
Can't wait for the new digi images, I have to say what attracts me to digi is getting it there and then yet I only wait a day to receive your rubber stamps.
Have a wonderful Christmas your house sounds just like mine all four children home for the holidays.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE digi's, they are my new addiction. I will always love da rubbah, but digis certainly are nice for instant gratification and altering. :)

Kat said...

They both look yummy! Looking forward to seeing new stamps and digi sounds good to me.
Hope you and yours have a lovely time at Christmas.
