today was a good day...

for me...
I got this is the mail from Heike @ Scrapz.Biz
my pressie from 12 Days of Christmas...
I worked it out to be Day 9 prize...
lots of goodies!!

& I ate this...


Gingerbread Poptart...YUM!!!

even with a cute little snowman print & delish marshmallow like filling.


& I made this.
my LO for the January 123 chall
criteria...colour - purple...word - beautiful...technique - punches
I cut strips of purple pp & punched decorative edge, cut into 1.5cm pieces & then stuck back together in the shape of circle on the LO.

Also made some gorgeous handmade roses using the 6 petal punch in 3 different sizes, i added some antique glass glitter to them too.

'to believe is a beautiful thing' is the title, being a picture taken of Miss T at Easter I thought it fitted well.

I did this all the while my DB & SIL & a band of helpers cleared out my Dad's business in Gympie, at about 11am - midday the Mary river was at nearly 18mtrs & rising!!! It will no doubt be flooded by now but i don't want to ring again just yet. They were super busy clearstuff out when i called this morning to check they hadn't floated down the river themselves...they started moving gear out at 4am this morning!! I hope the flood waters rise & fall quickly, at least that way the mud doesn't have to long to settle & it makes cleaning up much easier.
