Sneak Peek Blog Hop

Good morning! It's been a while since I last posted, I have been soooo busy! Anyhow, I'm back and this morning I have some very exciting sneak peeks to share with you.  The two cards I am showing you today both use items from the upcoming mini catalogue, these brand new items will be available to order from January 4th so not long to wait now.

I don't know about you but I find it hard to get my mojo back after christmas.  I feel like I've been doing Reindeer and Baubles for so long that when I come to something else I'm stuck!  I was so pleased when my lovely upline Monica suggested a team blog hop, I new it would get me into the swing of things again.  I don't have many of the mini catalogue items yet but I hope you like my creations,  I've done two very quick and simple cards today, great for when you need something in a hurry.

Welcome to my little corner of the web if you are new and have come here from Lindsay's blog   Next stop on the tour is Gen's blog I will include the full list at the bottom of my post.
