If you remember a few days back I said that that I'm sort of following Shimelle's Christmas journal prompts and sort of not. I follow them when it suits the things that I want to document and I don't follow them when I have other traditions etc that I want to feature in my journal. So the 3rd prompt was supposed to be about "cards" and I decided not to do it. Why? For the simple reason that we made our Christmas cards a little later than usual and...well, it was just as simple as: they were not made by the 3rd :)

Instead I swapped it to day 6 as we sat and made our cards on Saturday. And yes I say "we" as I got Ross to agree to make them with me as long as I had made a "card prototype" and showed him what to do. It's something that we have done for 2-3 years now and it's so cosy. Christmas music playing and making cards together. :)

Thanks to those of you who commented on the iPod Touch blogging yesterday and told me about your fave applications etc. I sat for a few hours last night searching for applications and downloading lots of stuff. So much fun!! :)

And before I go, Abi - you left a comment saying you'd just got a Cuttlebug (yay! Loooove mine :)) and wondered if I'd got any Nestabilities to go with mine. The answer is no - I'm trying to stay away from looking at too many other companies' dies at the moment because I just don't want to be tempted LOL! I'm sure I will look into it in the future sometime but at the moment I'm just happy playing with my embossing folders. :) If there are any "must haves" though, please do let me know ;)

That is looking so good. Why not mix it up. Funny thing - made my protoype on the 3rd, but only did the cards on the tenth. :)

I love this journal and the way you are putting it together. And how great to sit and create your cards together.

Think I may mix up the prompts a little as well.. not that I have started at all.

As for cards ... I am just about to start on mine... :o

LOVE your pages as always, Anso!
