Back so soon?!!

Morning All,

Yep I'm back again so soon, lol!  Today with a Christmas Card I made for my Mum, Dad and Bro last week but didn't get around to posting yet.  I used my new Sugar Nellie 'Old St Nick' stamp, he's just such a perfect Santa isn't he?!...



A close up of 'Old St Nick'...



Inside of card...



And a side view...



I love this stamp!

I'm feeling much better today after my self inflicted hangover yesterday, so I plan to get into my craft room for a big session!  I still have loads of cards to make, and this year I thought I was organised, lol!  Still, I have some ideas in mind so fingers crossed I can get busy today  :o))  

I promised you all some photo's of Daemo's birthday celebrations, so here they are (warning, photo heavy!!)...

Daemo with the Maserati GranCabrio he borrowed for the day...



Daemo's birthday cake...


And the guests cakes...



Daemo with his Dad and Brother-In-Law...



Daemo and his best mate Steve, the envelope was his present, a track day in a Lamborghini!!  Thanks Steve  :o)) ...



Daemo blowing his candles out...



Me and Daemo...


It was such a fun evening  :o)  They had a live singer on in the restaurant so that really added to the atmosphere.  I made some trivia cards for the tables, one on Sport, one on Movies, one on Music and a General Knowledge one to see how well everyone knew Daemo, the singer even read some of the questions out, lol!  We also had a little raffle with some of Daemo's favourite films to give away on DVD and the grand prize was.....an Arsenal Rubber Ducky, lol!  Well we had to have something Arsenal related as Daemo is a huge fan!  All in all it was a great night and I think everyone enjoyed themselves  :o)

Ok, that's it from me, I'll see you all soon,
Much love,
