Happy December to you all!!
Mine started off beautifully by finding out I had won a lovely new Penny Black stamp over at Penny Black Saturday .. .. woo hoo!! Hopefully it will be here in time for me to use on a few of the many Christmas cards I still need to make!!
So it is December the 1st and this is where the excitement (and panic) starts. I love Christmas!!
I am beginning to think my lovely hubby has been reading my blog in his lunch break .. .. you will remember last week I posted that just for once I wanted to be organised for Christmas. Well one evening during the week he wanted to go and do some Christmas shopping .. .. .. and today he has got all the Christmas paraphernalia down out of the roof .. .. without even being asked!!!! and he has also been looking on-line for Christmas presents for the kids!! The decorations never come out of the roof until mid December normally!! Crikey me!!!!
You may have noticed that I am into my sketches at the moment. It certainly speeds up production when someone else has gone to the trouble of working out a sketch for you .. .. but also you finish up with something a little different to what you might normally make.
So thank you Sketch Saturday for coming up with another lovely sketch. Here is my card for entering into this week's challenge.
Image and Sentiment: Pink Petticoat "Have An Ice Christmas" (printed a set out the other evening and still have lots of these cute little characters to use up - luckily they don't take much colouring in LOL!!)
Backing Papers: Dovecraft Back to Basics "Vintage"
Martha Stewart Punch: Traditional Scallop
Hobbycraft Punch: Snowflake
Nestabilities: Large Labels
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
ProMarkers and Chalk
White Gel Pen
More of that ribbon from Lidl
and this is the lovely sketch:
So that is me for today. Bright and early as we are off out with friends tonight. We haven't seen them for a while so it will be lovely to catch up with them.
I'll see you tomorrow with my snippets and then next weekend it is the annual craft event in the House of Hearts .. .. label day!!!! But more about that next week.
Have a lovely rest of the day everyone.
