Five GOOOOOLD Rings!

Hi all,

Do you have that special crafty stash that you don't use, but just look at? Yep, me too; I have several  Graphic 45 retiring lines' pads that I bought on special but never got round to using as I kept taking them out and looking at the lovely images and felt bad for even considering cutting  it up. But not anymore, dear readers! I have actually made a card with one of my pads and I once I got started I thoroughly enjoyed myself :) I've used the Twelve Days of Christmas pad; I kept singing the song as I was crafting. As a matter of fact, it's still in my head! I am sure people who walked by our house this week were a bit puzzled to hear a Christmas song over and over again, as I didn't quite realise I left the window open....... Anyhow, my other Graphic 45 pad are for the chop now as well, no more hoarding ;)
