Yay for Papertrey!

Not so yay for the postage and customs charges! lol! It cost an arm and a leg but I just had to have this Holiday buttons set from PTI and the buttons that went with it, oh and some of the Rustic Snowflake papers! I love Papertrey Ink, it's just such a shame that there are no stockists here in the UK as the shipping and customs charges are really expensive. However I'm lucky as my sis is going to New York soon and has kindly said that I can get some ordered and she will bring them home for me! If that works out I'll be a happy bunny!

Supplies: Stamps - PTI/ cardstock - SU/ buttons - PTI/ ribbon and linen thread - SU/ tools - Fiskars threading water punch

I really don't know where the days are going, feel like I've got a million and one things to do! Sure I'm not the only one feeling like that in the run up to Christmas. I'm hoping to catch up and get my to do lists right down this weekend!

One thing I have checked off is getting our Christmas tree, just can't wait to put it up now! It's our first Christmas together in our new home, so we are very excited. I have tons of decorations and ornaments already that I've collected over the years in preparation for when we had our own home. We may get a small real tree too, but living in a small cottage we had to get an artificial one that we can fit into an awkward space! I've also prepared a Christmas playlist of music for my blog, is it too early to put on yet? lol.

Hope you are having a good week so far,

Katrina -

I couldn't resist the Paper Trey Holiday Button Bits either. I even purchased the Everyday Button Bits, and buttons as well. Luckily, I live in the states. But I just thought the Button Bits were such a clever idea. I love the card you made, it is so sweet.

Beautiful card, I love the ribbon, it looks soo cute :)

Elaine said...

Aren't Button Bits the cutest set and so clever? You should email me when you need/want Papertrey!! I wonder if it's less costly to have me ship to you than it is to have PTI send it to you....let me know, ok?? :)
