Once Uppon a Sketch.

There is a new sketch over at Once Upon A Sketch. I like this challenge site as it encourages to write down your thought and ideas. Yesterday afternoon Amelie asked me a question that I had to write down for future memories and laughs ! So I poped over to Once upon a Sketch and used their sketch. This time the requirement is that you write a couple of sentences on the picture so I gave it a try .
Here is the sketch...

And here is my take...

Now, if you look closely, there is resemblance between Gnomeo and the Smurfs, you know, they both wear funny little hats, so I know where her thoughts came from, but I did laugh at loud !

Yesterday I also had time to make a little present for a friend of Amelie.

 This little gift was an idea I got when I went to a Stampin'up party presented by Suzanne.( You have to go and check out her new blog, she is new to blogging !). The party was great, we had far too much wine and I can still remember eating loads of chocolate but not achieving anything crafty ! Still, loads of gossiping and really a great night ! So thank you Jemma for hosting it and sorry we left so many empty bottles of wine behind !
Anyway, the little gift was real a try out for new ideas for our School Christmas fair. Every year, a few crafty mums get together and try to make little crafty things to sell for the school. So we thought, these little bags of goodies might work. A few reindeers and snow flakes instead of the Japanese dolls and there you go !.What do you think?

Enjoy the rest of the weekend,
