The whole reason for my lack of crafting time, is that we have just put our house on the market (last week to be precise!) and after a slow start, this week we've had a quite a few viewings, so I've had to TRY to keep the house as 'top notch' as possible!
Anyway, I did manage to make one card for you today using the tags from the Christmas stamp set from Particraft which can't be bought, BUT you can get it FREE if you host a party - and there are two to choose from, they're really versatile and great for all your Christmas projects, I've used the tags on a card, but they would look equally as good on their own on a present!!
Ingredients: Particraft Chrsitmas stamp set 2, distress inks, cuttlebug embossing folder, papers from stash box
Here are the two stamp sets to choose from click on the picture above to find out more.

The training itself was fab we played with distress ink, distress crakle paint, cosmic shimmer, adirondack dabbers, alcohol inks, grungeboard and great new ways and techniques of putting them to use, in a word - Fantastic! and the business side of the training was VERY informative and just as great. You can be sure of seeing some projects coming this way shortly putting some of these new techniques to use - so watch this space!
It was also great to see all the new Particrafts products that we are going to be stocking along with many exclusive products too, and I could list them all here for you but, that would take up too long, so trust me when I reccommend that you see them for yourself here!
And then of course, Remeberance Day this morning, and my son (who is a young Cadet) was Parading, so all the family went down this morning to see them and go along to the church service, grandparents came down especially, it was 'awesome' and one of those moments that is really touching and we were all really proud of him!
And last but not least, an afternoon football match in the cold, very blustery, rain and wet and muddy pitch, my hands were frozen, how I managed to take a picture was pure genius!(although as you can see they're not great!) - hubby was running the line and the look on his face just read 'what am I doing here??!!' still the boys had a good game, enjoyed it and came away with a 9 - 0 victory!
And now, at the end of the evening, dinner had, grandparents gone home, kids all in bed, hubby watching t.v. I was going to retire to my craft room for a couple of hours and craft, but all I've manged to do is mount my new stamps, put everything (craft things) away from the weekend and I can't do no more, once I've finished this post, I will be retiring, but to bed, for a fresh start tomorrow and a whole afternoon of crafting - I hope!

I have used WOJ stamp 'Carol singing Charlotte' the background musical notes stamp is from 'Stamps Away' the sentiment is a download from the Funky Fairy and the papers are from Kaiser. The rose ribbon embelishment I have made from the same ribbon that runs at the bottom of the card.
