As you can see a busy week so far with a very messy desk .
I do have lovely new stash but not had a freat opportunity to be creative.

I bought this week the magazine Simply Homemade as it had the beautiful free stamps you can see tothe left.All lovely christmasy type swirls and greetings so I couldnt resisit and why should a lady have to right?
Also I bought a lovely Christmas kit from hobby craftfrom MY MINDS EYE.
Lovely glittered papers and embelishments .

Because it would have been rude not to I also picked up a new butterfliy punch
inspired after watching a utube upload from Shimelle whoe class Im following at the moment
all be it not to sucessfully.(link in side bar)
Oh yes and the pretty christmassy ribbons you can see.

Cupcakes featured on my agenda this week as an afternoon treat for my work colleague who had been away and I wanted to show how much we had missed her in the office..
You have to have afternoon tea

Finally Id like to introduce you to our new baby
Cream British shorthaired kitten
AKA Sookie.

Well busy week and busy day so gotta rush .
Pop over to Julias blog to see what everyone else is up to.
Thanks for stopping by have a great week.

Oooh, I've just bought that scrapbooking pack too, it's gorgeous! Not surprised you haven't had much time to be creative (just read your profile - 6 children and working full time! I'm struggling to get anything done with just 2 little ones). Thanks for letting us snoop :)

Thank you for your visit earlier. I forgot to say last time - if you want true madness, then you need 3 Burmese cats. Having lost all our cats to old age etc, we now have two completely mad working cocker spaniels.

Love the papers on the desk, how nice to have new stash to play with! Cupcake look to die for and that Kitten is just adorable!

Shoshi said...

What a lovely, lovely post!! I love getting new stash - fun isn't it! Cupcakes!!! I try to keep off cakes wherever possible but it doesn't always work - I'm desperately trying to lose weight without a lot of success! I could eat all those in one go and really enjoy them! They look delicious. And then finally that adorable, scrumptious little kitty! She is just wonderful! What a gorgeous little baby she is!! Awww. Want one. (Beatrice and Phoebe would NOT approve.) Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #84
