Cat In Xmas Tree

Well i'm back and firstly i would like to say a huge Thank You to all the lovely people who kindly left me comments on my cards - i was so shocked when i was finally able to log on, on the ship to find i had 27 comments.

We've been on a cruise with 'Ocean Village' again (went with them in May) and we enjoyed it so much last time, we thought we would treat ourselves to another one, as they finish in 13 weeks times (which is a real shame, as it's ideal for us with a 3 year old) - anyway this time we went to - Naples (where we went to 'Pompei), Florence (somewhere i have always wanted to go to and it didn't disappoint), Villefranche (from where you could go to Monaco, but we didn't as we had been there 5 years ago for The Grand Prix) and Corsica.

Right onto the card before i have to go and pick little one up from nursery !!! and the challenges i'm entering are :

ABC Christmas  - where they are up to 'O' for 'Ornament'

Totally Papercrafts - where they are up to Challenge No: 25 which is a recipe - 1 Image, 2 Papers, 1Ribbon and 3 Embellishments

Critter Challenge - where Challenge No: 23 is 'Christmas In July' with an option of a sketch too (which i've followed)

Cupcake Craft - where the Challenge is 'Cats and Dogs'

Magical Crafts - where their final Challenge No: 19 is 'Christmas In July'

Docrafts - Snoflake Challenge Week No: 30

I thought i would add another piccy of card - as you can't see the glossy accents on the bauble.

Image - Penny Black - 'Wonderful Christmas' (the original wooden stamp - I think the transparent one is too small)
Papers - DCWV - Christmas Wishes
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
Ribbon and Snowflake Brads - From Stash

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
