Urchin with bird

Good Morning

I hope you had a good start to the week,  we had some good news from the gas and electric, we finally had our meter read and we got a letter today to say a rebate is in the post,  its a hefty one too so just perfect this close to Christmas, that's all the presents sorted!!!  Takes the pressure of a bit, PHEW..

 I have nearly got my blog candy together, just waiting for a couple of packages to arrive and then it will be good to go!

So I am back again with another Mo Manning image and I kept the design pretty similar to my card yesterday in terms of papers and embellies, but I have used a different image, colours and layout so I hope you likey????  I am quite slow at colouring anyway but I spent nearly two hours on this one and I enjoyed every minute....all 120 of them !!!!
