Mmmmm I dont have a title lol!

Hi everyone, I hope you have all had a jolly good day!, I have had a right couple of lazy days, oh gosh, the other night as I said my hubby had left me watching ice truckers, well, it got to 2am and I thought I really must go to bed now, so I did, but not before hitting record on the remote to record the rest, so yesterday I sat and watched them, wow 2 series in one day and night lol, I finished the last one at 1am last night and so hope I remember to look out for them again during the year,I must get out more or watch less telly me thinks nothing else gets done!

I still havent been back to the shops for my daughters pressie, so without fail I have to go tomoz, can you tell the excitement I have for it, haha she wrote a list last night, and on it was a Jamie Oliver cooking ds game, (hubby found the ds in the car boot) now I am not sure if that is a nudge for me to do more cooking, I used to cook from scratch and bake loads when she was little, and decided I must start it again, so this year will be the year of cookery for me lol, she also wants some High Hell Shoes, I'm sure she means heels lol, amongst other stuff, but guess what neither of those are on my list!

I am having withdrawal symptoms due to everything else I cant buy no crafty bits and its driving me looney lol, roll on 3 weeks and then I CAN lol, why do birthdays get in the way of everyday crafting lol, I have so many family ones in January I cant keep up! speaking of which here is a card I have done for our niece she is into monkeys at the moment, the grief this card gave me I cannot tell you! the layout didnt come together, the papers didnt want to match, the embellishments didnt want to work grrrrr, but after an hour or two! its finished! I hope you like, do you think its too grown up for a 2 year old? please say no lol.
I used this whipper snapper stamp and coloured him with copic ciaos, and promarkers. I used 2 nesties for the behind, and overlapped them with paper from the bg sugared pad.I added ribbon to the bottom, and pulled out the middle of some roses to add to the ribbon in between the punched leaves. The flowers on the nesties are primas apart from the rose centre, and a couple of gems. The tags are from a sizzix die and number from my stash. I sure hope she likes it.
I did the inside too, seeing as thats my new years resolution, I thought we are nearly there lol, so start now, nothing fancy mind, have you made your new years resolution yet?! I think this may be the only one I ever stick too, the trick is to make them ones that you know you can do, dont you think!. I also recieved this fab award from Pascale , Thankyou so much hunny! I am touched you thought of me, and how nice it is to end the blogging year with an award!,Be sure to check out Pascales work she has a treasure of a blog.Its my first year blog birthday mid jan so I shall have to sort out some candy me thinks what do you all want? lol.

Hi Joey,
I think this card is so fabulous! I love that monkey how cute is he and your colouring is supurb! I don't think this is too old for a 2 year old at all. She will love the flowers and the number 2 looks brilliant. Thank you so much for this award. I am so thrilled to receive this especially from you.
Good luck with the pressie shopping tomorrow my son's is on new years eve good timing or what! I find it so hard to buy something fabulous when we have just had crimbo. Still it could be worse he was due on Christmas day and that would not have been too much fun for him.
