Been around the world and i i i !! Sir Stampalot challenge

All together now yes you know the song, well I had to use it as this months Sir Stampalot Challenge is Travel around the world,(that will give you a break from all those Chrissy cards)so why not pop over and see the amazing prize on offer this month here.

its my Birthday today, I am 47 sounds bad to me that number! had lots of things planned but have had to cancel quite a few of them due to the snow, but never mind I have been treated very nicely already today.

I hope you realised that my thingy at the top of my card is  meant to be a world and that its not half Christmas card and half Sir Stampalot Challenge, I know it looks like a bauble but I wouldn't cheat that much, honest : )

A little reminder about this coming weekend at Sir's the third Ultimate Rubber Stamping Demo Day from10am through 4pm, free refreshments and prize draws and a shop just full of gorgeousness, I will be there with lots of other ladies demoing, so come along and join in the fun, and please come and say hello and tell me who you are so I can come and visit you on your blogs.
hugs to you all Chris xx
