Sweet Stampin' - Seeing Double

A week ago, friends were asking me if I had finished my 'last minute' shopping. 
WHAT!!! A week ago - I had barely started. 
This continued through the week. Five days to go, three days to go ... "So Jenny, have you done your last minute shopping?" 
I think that it is time that we clearly defined the words 'last minute'. 
To me - last minute - means that I finish work on Christmas Eve at 2pm and race to the shops and run around like a crazy person before the shop keepers kick me out at 6pm or until the security guards come at 6.05pm
So ... in answer to your question - "Have I finished my last minute shopping?" the answer is "No! cause I am saving that until the last minute". 

I could possibly be just a teeny bit jealous of my super organised friends. But ssshhh! don't tell them.

This week at Sweet Stampin' we are "Seeing Double" which could have something to do with Christmas parties and alcohol. Not that I would know anything about that, cause I have been busy getting my Christmas shopping done. Hah! 
For you, it means putting two of anything on your card and joining in our fun at Sweet Stampin'. Our sponsor this week is Letraset who are giving away a set of Promarkers to a lucky winner and Joanna Sheen also has a monthly prize for you too.

I will enter this card in the following challenges:
Use your Stuff #65 Symmetry     Featured
There's Magic in the Air Snowmen or Anything Christmas
OLLCB #120 Reflections     Top 3
Ladybug Crafts Ink Anything Goes for Christmas
Celebrate the Occasion #93 Christmas Anything Goes
Craft Us Crazy #33 Merry Christmas
Aud Sentiments Use any Sentiment
I was going to wait until the last minute but that would be so unlike the 'new' me, so ....
  I wish all of my fabulous followers a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year .

Ribbons and Snowflakes

Over at Sweet Stampin', Team Fi have a new challenge for you. The theme is Ribbons and Snowflakes. They are sponsored by The Stamp Fairy and the girls have some fabulous cards to show you. 
This week, I have had a little bit of a tidy up in my craft space and have placed my stamps into nice neat drawers. Unfortunately, I ran out of time while I was organising, so the only "system" I have with them so far is ... 'Christmas' and ... 'Everything Else'.  
As you can tell, it is not quite perfected yet, but those stamps WILL be sorted into a more orderly and specific manner. 
For a little while though, it was like Christmas had come early at my house. Picture me sitting on the floor .....oooo! look at that one! I remember that! Oh! so cute! Ooops, two of the same, I should use this more! I love that stamp! brand new and never used, where did I get that one, I didn't know I had that. 
It is hard to believe that I ran out of time, isn't it? :-)
Anyway .... I found this cute Penny Black snowman called Little Snowy. I have used Simple Stories 12 x 12 paper and the same paper from the 6 x 6 paper pad. 
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
2 Sisters #120 Christmas Sparkle 
Ladybug Crafts Snowflakes
The Crafty Pad #198 Add some Glitter     TOP 5
Stamptacular Sunday #191 Winter Bliss     TOP 3
