Finally a Card!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Morning and Happy Saturday!

I don't know how you lot do it, I have not managed to get anywhere near making a card this week, I think  I  must be very disorganised!  I woke up this morning and panic mode has set in , I still have all the food shopping to get, the house to blitz, although hubby will help with that and I have to go to work Monday but hopefully it will be a short day.  I am sorry for not visiting this week I really hope to catch up tonight while watching strictly, MMmmm maybe I should not be watching the telly with so much to do LOL!!

This card is for my daughter and note to self I have to buy some Christmas Sentiments for next year, I did get some in the sale last year but very disappointed with the quality and they do not stamp well!  I chose this image coz Beth has been so excited about going to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park with her new "friend " and of course she got to go ice skating (good excuse to hold hands me thinks)!!  Anyway she had a totally fantastic day, came back with a giant teddy (and I mean giant) and found her way round the underground ok (I was a bit worried about that)!  So enough waffle, here is my card and my first LA LA LAND image (hello where have I been I did not know these were available as digi's)  Oh and there is an awesome colouring video on FB by the very talented Kristina Werner, go check it out-

Christmas Pudding.....


Oh hope you are all warm and well, have you had snow, we had a little bit here but nothing much.  A quick post from me as I am just about to hit the road down to Devon to visit my MIL and SIL and nephews.   I wasn't sure if we would go as I had a migraine from hell yesterday and didn't go to work, I feel really sorry for people that suffer with these on a regular basis, it was horrible!! My card today is a Teddy Bea and she has got her Christmas Pud, I LOVE Christmas Pud with Brandy cream, Yum Yum!  I used by gorgeous MB bow die and went for traditional colours for this one, although I am not very confident colouring in red.

My First Christmas Card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hope you are enjoying your weekend, it was a miserable day here in Kent yesterday and I am feeling quite yucky so I spent most of it snoozing on the sofa and generally not doing much!  I did find my way into my craft room for a little while and thought I best make a Christmas card as I haven't done any yet!  Pressure off this year though I intend buying them and just making just a few very special ones!   I refuse to feel guilty about it so that's that!

 Poor Jamie is really suffering with a chest infection that does not seem to want to go and really rough cold and now on top of it all he has got a stomach bug so I am really worried about him, being so far away I can't do anything much about it! He has been to the doctors so I really hope he will soon start to improve.  Poor Max (the dog) was sick yesterday as well and I think I have something lurking, me no likey!!!!!!

I have a non traditional Christmas card to share today with a gorgeous image from Mo and I got my flowers and lace on there too!!!!
