Funny how Monday soon turns into Thursday!

Sorry to have left you all hanging when I said I would post stuff Monday, I really don't know where this week has gone! So I didn't win last weeks HA 'book' challenge or a day on the HA blog as I know of but these are my submissions for last week.

Firstly this was my entry for the 'book' challenge. I had loads of ideas and planned on doing various books but only had time for this one. I really enjoyed making this and probably will make variations of it to give to family for Christmas. 

Card: Whisper White, Real Red, Always Artichoke, Dashing DP (All SU!)
Ink: Colorbox Chalks, Memories Black
Stamps: CD Holiday Tags, CD Celebrate Simple Joy, Tiny Santa,Fusion Trees, Merry Ornament, Wavy Holly (All Hero Arts)
Accessories: Red & Green Organza Ribbon, HA Snowflake Gems, Black Satin Ribbon, Ha Gems, Prisma color pencils & glitter glue.

I also had so many plans to enter more for the 'win a day on the HA blog' but I only entered a couple of cards. I will try my best for the new 'win a day on the HA blog'. I am off to Florida on Monday so I am hoping I will find lots of HA goodies on my travels around craft & scrapbook stores and I can't wait to visit Michaels!!!

Card: Night of Navy, Ballet Blue, Whisper White.
Ink: Colourbox chalks.
Stamps: Lots of Wonderful, CD Birds & Branches, DB Butterfly
Accessories: Navy Satin Ribbon, Cricut & Cricut Accent Essentials Cartridge.

I have been spoiling myself a lot recently with all that has happened this year I think is deserved and cheers me up a little :) so that has to be good.  I found out that SU! was available in the UK and found myself a demonstrator who happens to live 5 minutes away from me!! You can visit her blog HERE. Well of course I had to treat myself to dome goodies! One of the things I bought was the 4 card packs and I just LOVE how easy it is to match the colors with each other. I was so happy how the card above came out. Also I LOVE the birds in this set from HA and have done a few cards with them which I hope to share soon. 

So.... I have managed to post a couple of things tonight and today I have managed to find time to make a couple of cards for this weeks HA 'holiday' challenge. I have had a varied day from getting my hair done to playing Pinata Trouble in Paradise on the XBOX 360 that arrived in the post today. Just love that game!!! 

I doubt I will get round to posting while I'm away maybe a photo or two and some bargain buys!! I haven't figured out how to use this blogging site well enough yet to get posts ready to be uploaded before I go away. Anyways, hope to post again tomorrow but definetly before Monday!!

Gorgeous card, Beverley!
It's actually quite easy to schedule a later post on Blogger. When you have the post ready, choose Post Options & then choose the date/time for it to post & it should work just fine. I've not done any for days in advance, but for later in same day it works beautifully! I don't like when I prepare it in draft a day or two ahead and then just his post that it posts as the date/time I first started the post. So I learned to use the Post Options to control the date/time it posts! Good luck! Hope it works well for you!!! ;-)

I really like your tag book. It is such an original design.

I've seen lots of other tag books, but they are all attached at the bottom of the tags. I really like how yours is an accordian fold along their sides.

Thanks for sharing it! :-)
