Whoa, I can hardly believe it!! People have been visiting me and 2010 is almost over!! I only popped in 'cos I had an email from Cluster Maps - the revolving globe on the side of the page - and the email provided a link to my blog so I thought I'd sign in for no reason. You guys are dolls for still popping in. I reckon everyone's on some social networking thing these Facebook, My Space and Twitter - how do they find the time to manage blogs as well (and farms?) LOL.

SBO has an awesome competition going at the mo and this is my entry for week 3. There has been a lot of cats thru my life but this one is really different!! She'll walk across our chests and sometimes our heads trying to poke her way under the blankets and snuggle up beside us. If that doesn't work she'll sleep across our necks. We only wake up because we're being choked by fur. I totally enjoyed working with 'white space' and see that big flower in the corner of the cluster? The centre was made by Yolande Fenneman at the Autumn Retreat in Taupo and I was very lucky to be given one. I'd be saving it for something special.

Going to leave you here...I wonder if I'll be back before the year is out? Guess you'll have to wait and see.

Happy New Year Everyone!!

Whichever part of the world you're in may 2010 be everything you wish for! Maybe you'll be eating Blackeyed Peas at breakfast for a lucky year? Lois of Kansas tells me her hubby insists on it every 1st of January. I think it's a cool tradition handed down by his Mom. I mean hey everyone loves traditions!

My New Year tradition.....I hope the neighbour was holding something when he came over this morning. I wouldn't know since I didn't realise he'd been until he was leaving, lol. A lovely scottish friend from years ago told me the first person thru her door after midnight has to be holding something. A piece of coal, a key...anything! This year I forgot!

Leaving you with these card holders I made using Bo Bunny and My Minds Eye from Scrapbook Outlet. I wish I could remember where I originally saw the holder ....somewhere on my blog hopping travels last year and if I were a better photographer you'd get better pics too! However, they were both made to be given has gone to the other side of town and the other to the far side of the world...bit late for better pics hey?

I used the Bazzil brown monochromatic pack to make the base. For the top holder I used Bo Bunny and the lower is made with My Minds Eye Ooh La La For Her. The metal name plates are SU as are the stamped sentiments.

Below is the open Bo Bunny Card Holder.....since this was going to the States, instead of stamps I made a couple of note cards to put in the postage stamp pocket. Otherwise it fits 6 lumpy cards with envelopes.

Some of the cards that go in the Bo Bunny Holder. All paper used is from Bo Bunny and I used various embellishments from my stash.

Assorted cards for the My Minds Eye Card holder. Note the card of NZ stamps in the wee pocket. Cute eh?

I'll be making more of these for sure, they were fun to make!

Hello myblueluna, I've been enjoying the blogs you're subscribed to.
