Another day at home! Kitchen planner arriving later so fingers crossed. The new kichen/dining room space is looking good though and it's going to be worth all the hassle and there really hasn't been too much mess. My craft room alterations have been cancelled though although they have taken out a sloped wall to make a proper corner so now I am going to fit it out with some new units instead of putting it back the way it was. May have to spend some time in Ikea.com this afternoon!
Here's another card I made earlier:

Red mat scored with my box maker, green scalloped nestie square with vellum square attached, 4 small inchie squares cut from red and green BP from Papermania. Stickers are a Forever Friends freebie I've never opened. Card is finished with some bakers twine and peel offs. All card and paper came from my bit box.

Challenges entered:
Kaboodle Doodles - squares or inchies (managed both)
ABC Christmas Challenge - U for unused stash
Glitter Geeks - two's company
Christmas Inspirations - diecuts or punches
OSAAT - shape up
