I can't believe it's been nearly a month since my last post and also nearly a month since I last switched on my laptop - but I do love my IPad!

I have been making things, and I've been spending lots of pennies, mainly on Crafters Companion products - have become quite obsessed with their products, but they are so good and such good value, it's difficult not to.

One of the CC things I bought (well, several) was the Snowman products, all of them, CD's and stamps, they are fab, so fab in fact that I had to use them to make something really special.  So armed with a tutorial that Sara Davies did on the CC forum during birthday week, I made 24 individual slider boxes and then stuck them all together and created this.  I've wanted to do one of these for ages but until I saw the tutorial (using the ultimate pro) I didn't know how to make the slider boxes, but they are soo easy, it was great.  All of the papers used on the advent calendar are from CC as well, and of course the gorgeous snowmen stamps, and to top it off, I used my CC Spectrum Noirs to colour the images.

I have so much more to show you, but I will have to save that for another day - hopefully not so long next time!  I'm going to enter this card into the Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge, which this month is 'Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow'.

About time you posted again very clever, I have had real problems with my computer, had to buy a new one so have been off line for ages. In hospital on Friday so will give you a call when I come out unless you fancy visiting me that is. I am going into the Peninsular Treatment Centre visiting times 2-8. Can't wait to see what else you have been up to but love what you have done to the slider boxes. Brilliant. love Alison
