Well...I survived my first day back at work yesterday and it wasn't half as bad as I thought it would be! I was comforted by the fact that the girls bought in a stack of mince pies and choccies...they didn't want them at home as they have all started their they bring them in to work to share with everyone...I scoffed all day and it was bliss...the only thing that was missing was that I was in work clothes and not my jarmies lol! The belgian choccies are on my list for today...yum yum!

Donna, stop making such beautiful cards! :P Girl, you know, I wish I could make consistently great cards like you do. I love the triple tiered lace and what you did with the scallop paper - beautiful! I love your image - so cute and colored so well! I like the corner punches on opposite ends like that - really unique - never thought of that myself! Mmmm..don't you love when co-workers bring in good snacks after the holidays! ;D Heehee... the one good thing about going back to the hump and grind sometimes! ;p
