"Celebrate" Inky Impressions December bloghop

Hello again!

I've had such a busy blogging week and have come to the end with my final post for the week, which coincidentally is also my final post for Inky Impressions.  I'm so sad to leave Inky and I want to take this opportunity to thank our "Inky Mamma" Nicole for having me on the team, I have so enjoyed working with these cute little images and the lovely Inky embellies.  Thanks also to Tonya our DT coordinator for being so understanding about life (and holidays away!) getting in the way of my DT duties this term.  It's really for that reason that I  knew that I had to stand down. To those who think that working on a DT team like Inky is easy - it's really not - its a big commitment if you do it properly and because I know that I haven't got enough hours in the day to do it to my very best - well I've already said it - i'm standing down.

There are some great new girls starting on the team in the new term in January - so watch out for news of them starting on the DT blog, I know there's going to be some fab new projects from them next term.

Anyway onto the blog hop this month

We are all celebrating (well what else do you do in December!!), so we have all kinds of cards for you to see along the way on our hop. I've used the fabulous Marleigha and Pebbles skating available here

I decided just to be boring and traditional and keep on celebrating Christmas!! Sometimes it gets a bit full on but really I love Christmas - it is after all only a few days and as the years have gone by and our kids have grown up ( and things are altogether calmer) we've got new traditions and things that we do, but most of all its about family.  This year we have our grandson - well we had him last year as well but at only 11 days old he didn't do much other than sleep - this year he's such a joy and I'm so looking forward to the  toys and mess that will come with him on Christmas day lol.

So.... if you want the chance to win a great inky prize of 2 digis of your choice here's the order of the hop and who knows where the prize will be hidden. Just follow the order of the hop and leave a comment at each stop and you could be the lucky winner of this special Christmas blog hop, the last date for commenting is 21st December - hope we see you there

Order of the hop!
