Festival of Trees tag card

Oops, how did it get to be Friday? I’ll tell you how… it’s been a bit of a crazy week. The biggest thing to happen has been our office move at work. If you’re in Derby you’ll have probably read about it at some point. We’ve not moved far but it does mean a different route into work, an earlier start to allow time to find a parking space (and *gasp* PAY for it), plus disruption when you get there, as we try to get used to a new way of working, overcome a few technical teething problems and get to grips with a clever but therefore more complex new phone system. But our new “hot-desking” culture means that next week I am going to try working from home for part of the week, so fingers crossed our wi-fi is up to the task!

Back home we’ve been trying to get our boiler fixed so that we can have central heating when we want it. Thank goodness we have the woodburner to take the chill off the house, even when the radiators won’t work. By chance, I found a really great plumber who has given us heat, but he still needs to come back to find out why the pump now won’t switch off! This wouldn’t be a major issue if the boiler wasn’t in the back of a cupboard, the contents of which are currently strewn across the kitchen table waiting to be put away when the issues are resolved. 

Meanwhile, most of us at home and a good chunk of us at work are dealing with a particularly nasty cold which, as you know, makes everything seem worse! 

But enough of my woes, here’s a fun card that you can easily make if you have the Tree Punch; you don’t even need the co-ordinating stamp set, as you can switch the greeting. But I will warn you – I was talking to my demo friend Ann the other day and she says several of her customers bought the stamp set, intending to cut out the tree themselves… then returned to her quite quickly to order the punch, too! So, as Stampin’ Up!® so often knows best, buy the stamps and punch as a bundle for best value and ease of use.
