Happy Birthday Neighbour

One of my neighbours is having a birthday today.. So had to get into the craft room and come up with something.. then deliver before they left for dinner with the family..

This is what I came up with just love these Tim Holtz folders 
got my achol inks out and had fun playing.. 
It was actually a pretty quick card to do once the idea came along..
Did do some cleaning up in there first.. 
Need to get all the Chrismas stuff put together and away for awhile..

Firwood Hill Neighbour's Christmas Cards

Merry Christmas to all my friends in Blog land..  Christmas is coming fast and so much to get done..

Today is our annual  Neighbour Hood dinner party.. Do you all have traditions that you carry out every year you are able.. This is one we started when we moved to this area..  This afternoon is our 21st.. we have missed the odd year but have had a get together when ever possible at Christmas..

We have such great friends and neighbours around us on this Hill.. It started out as a pot luck and now we still do pot luck around the Turkey dinner I put together..  Today if all show which I am sure they will we will be 14 in all.. (7 couples) 

I started making the cards during the week and managed to get them finished yesterday..

I am hoping none of them check in on the blog till later..

I am just loving my TH Dies this year.. Also the Memory box ones as well..

Well Merry Christmas to One and All..

Take Care

Oh what fun we had again doing Tim's tags.. We  ( 5 of us) got together at Creative Accents and did the tags on Saturday.. Love the tags this time ( not like we haven't loved the others)  I think this is the first time we have made our tags so close to the same I had trouble getting the right name to the right tag.. Let me know ladies if I got yours wrong..

First up the Snowman...

Here is my Snowman

See they are hard to tell apart.. 

Next up the Red ones...

Tara and Julie didn't have there's finished by the time we did for picture taking I am sure Tara will put there's up on Creative Accents Site soon.. Again hard to tell them apart.. but so much fun to make..

Just love these tags.. I sure hope you have something special up your  sleeve for 2013  Tim
