Make It Monday #69 with Di's Digi Downloads

Hi, how are you?

Did you survive the Christmas craziness with your sanity in tact??

Chaos reigned supreme in my house but I wouldn't have it any other way. I just know that the days of my boys being caught up in the magic of the twinkling Christmas lights are numbered so I am more than fine with being woken up at just after midnight by my middle son (seven) who is TOTALLY sure that Santa woke him up when he sat on his bed to fill his stocking.

My eldest son (now eight and a half) mentioned just before falling asleep on Christmas Eve that he remembered that last year he thought it quite interesting that the gifts from Santa had been wrapped in the same wrapping paper as the gifts from his Dad and I..........hmmm mental note to self to remember that next year!

How will I spend my Christmas Eve in the future when I don't have to put out the "magic" key and fill a glass with milk to place beside the cookies and carrots and write that letter from Santa? I choose not to think to much about it now but instead draw every inch of love and happiness from the moments now.

Well, enough of my sentimental mushiness, lol, and on to the reason for my post today!!

Even with the fesitive season mayhem so many of you still managed to find a little creating time and shared your beautiful creations with us over at Make It Monday this week.

It has been so much fun these past few weeks seeing all the fabulous Christmas creations. But I must admit with this week's Make It Monday linky party now open, I am really looking forward to seeing more of the non seasonal projects you can come up with.

I found a little time to create a card this week to share with you using an adorable image from our sponsor this week.

Image is called "Birthday Rascal"

isn't it just adorable?! I'm a sucker for a cute image, I can't deny!

I would like to enter my card in to the following challenges:

Make It Monday #68 with Crafty Emma's Store

Well hello there!

Long time no post hey!

I'm sorry about that and I have really missed being creative too. But I'm sure you all know how it is when life just seems to get in the way.

It is the end of year school holidays here in Australia now, so my boys are on six weeks holiday and that is keeping me pretty busy to say the least.

I'm popping in today because a new Make It Monday linky party starts today and I actually have something to share this week, yay!

A few weeks ago I was madly making up dozens of gifts for my son's teachers and teacher aids and some for the lovely ladies that I work with in the school office.

I had almost given them all out when I suddenly realised I hadn't taken any photos of them, eek! Luckily I had a couple left and I quickly snapped a few shots so that I could share them with you this week.

I made a whole swag of these refillable (has a flip top lid) coffee bag dispensers. They are so quick and easy to make.

Ok now, you've seen what I'm sharing for Make It Monday this week, let me see what you have been busy making.

This week's MIM linky party is sponsored by the lovely Emma from

and she is generously offering a £10 voucher to her store.

To be in with a chance to win this fabulous prize all you need to do is leave a comment for another entrant letting them know you saw them on Make It Monday. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning.

The incredibly talented girls on the MIM design team have created some gorgeous cards to help get you all inspired this week and you should definitely head on over and check them out, but before you go let me share with you my favourite entry from last week's linky party.

It has to be this fabulously fun card from

I love the fun image and the pretty colour combo!!

Thanks for sharing with us Kerry!

So come on, share your paper creations with us over at Make It Monday this week! New or old it doesn't matter. It's all about sharing the inspiration and making some new blogging friends along the way.

Happy Holidays!!
