Hello & I hope that you are well!

Here in Sydney we have been experiencing some hot weather with storms in the afternoon. This humid weather has created some problems like getting home on Wednesday and finding that the telephone and internet are out.  

It is now Sunday and still not working maybe it will be back up and running by Wednesday of this week when the technician gets to home.  In the meantime it is lucky that Mum and Dad are not far away so I can do some posting.

But anyway let me tell you what we are doing at Come and Get It for the next few weeks.

At Come And Get It for the next few weeks we are creating Christmas Projects and Cards using our Sponsor's images.

So for my first project I have used a sweet image from Bugaboo called "Christmas Mouse Ornament" and cut the image out with a die and layered it on some Silver Glimmer Paper.

I created a cover for a bottle wine using some Bo Bunny paper and also where the join is on the back of the bottle I have added some Snowflakes by using the Martha Stewart "Winter Snow" Punch - (I will add photos soon).

The cover can be slipped off and reused of placed on the Christmas Table.
