It sounds a lot of questions (well it is!) but it really doesn't take much time to go through them all, unless you keep pressing the previous button instead of the next button like I did!!
So my strengths are;-
1)Humour and playfullness (not sure if this is something to be proud of at my age and out of all the 0ther possible attributes I could have at the top of the list!)
2) Fairness, equity and justice (I think is totally true and has gotten me into trouble in the past! If I believed in star signs then I would put this down to the fact I'm a Libra!)
3) Honesty, authenticity and genuineness (quite like this strength)
4) Kindness and generosity (definitely one I am happy to have!)
5) Capacity to love and be loved (how sweet is that!)
I think it is really interesting and I hope to go back sometime in the future and take the test again as I am sure some of the answers will change depending on what has been happening in my life! It is also interesting to note that Jessica Sprague has completely different strengths to me.
Her top strength is creativity, ingenuity and originality, which doesn't even feature in my top 5.... does this actually mean anything?? I am not sure I am that original at the moment as it seems easier to follow rather than lead where I am now, but that hasn't always been the case and I am not sure it will be in the future either! In fact Jessica and I don't share any of our top 5 strengths!!
Jessica suggests tagging others to complete the survey and find out their strengths so I am gonna tag you! Yes whoever is reading this post, go on take some time out of your day and try it and see what you come up with. I would really love to see your answers please post them back here in the comments. Also if you complete it prior to Tuesday post the answers on Jessica's blog as you might win the class! The link to the test is here I would really love to see what it says about each of us and compare notes!!

watching a Christmas film! I don't usually start quite as early as this but if I can have Christmas cards through my letterbox I can have Christmas films on the TV!!
I love watching Christmas films and every year I record as many as I can on the Sky plus box and then I work my way through them..... it's great and really make sme feel festive! It drives my hubby slightly crazy as he says all the films have similar stories eg boy meets girl, girl already has a boyfriend but by the end of the film she realises the new boy is her true love and they all live happily ever after. Another example is the family tale, all upset and/or apart at Thanksgiving but all together and happy at Christmas! Etc etc you get the picture.
Christmas film review number 1 'A Christmas Angel'
An elderly man recruits a lonely young woman to help with festive acts of good will. A feel good film about helping others, friendship and thoughtfulness. ****/***** (4* out of5*)
Look out for more of my reviews as I work my way through the films currently showing on the Movie Channels!!

I have used the really cute 'Bella the Snowlady' image by Robyn's Fetish which I totally adore and have 'paper pieced' it together (which is useful as my colouring is not great!) I am going to be making a few more cards using that gorgeous snowman.
Please visit I Did It Creations Challenge Blog here to see some great cards from the Design Team and to enter this weeks challenge... you can do it!!

The answers are:-
3. Jackie (though sadly she couldn't make it on the blog hop)
Do pop over and visit their blogs as they are really great!
So, there were only 3 entries to my competition and of these 2 were correct so I have decided to send them both some stash to play with. Congrats to K and Mel. Please let me know your snail mail addresses so I can get something in the post for you both xxx
The class is free to everyone and Jessica says that the 10 day class will cover 5 different paths to inspiration... words, music, art, tools and play. Each theme will have projects and different techniques to use no matter what your art form is.
Like other online classes it will be archived for you to use in the future should you not have time to follow it now or complete it. So what have you got to lose?? Going sign up for 'Inspiration Everywhere' here and join in. I might even see you there!!!

I have used Sammi Snowman a digital stamp by Lexi Creations available from Stitchy Bear Stamps. The weekly winner will receive a $5 coupon to use with Lexi Creations if they use a Lexi Creations image otherwise the winner will receive a free digi image.
I really look forward to seeing what everyone creates for this challenge. Remember it is less than 7 weeks to Christmas Day (this was my first handmade Christmas card this year!!!)

I am editing this at 22.40 as realised that my number 3 was unable to join in the blog hop due to illness. It was Scrappy Jacky so would just like to wish her well. Sorry for confusing you all xxx
