Blue Christmas


Well i couldn't get tickets for 'Take That' no matter how much my OH (not that he was bothered about going) and I tried, so instead i've just booked to go and see Cirque du Soileil 'Totem' at The Royal Albert Hall in February and we are taking son (who will be 4 by then and it's his birthday present).

I'm not impressed with Google at the moment as i have lost all of my 57 Bookmarks, as they wanted me to upload a new header !!

I would just like to thank the lovely ladies at ABC Christmas Challenge as i came 3rd for 'W is for Wonderland' for my card 'Cool Company'.

Ok today i have used a LOTV image that i won in a blog candy - didn't know if i would like her, but after colouring her in, i do, she is a cutie. Erm glitter - i have put it on the image (puff ball), on the flowers (glamour mist), stickled the dp and snowflake punch - hoping it all shows up, if not i will add another photo tomorrow.

Right onto todays Card and Challenges :

Lili Of The Valley - where they are up to Challenge No: 74 'Glitter and Glitz'

Wild Orchid  - where Challenge No: 10 is 'Blue Christmas'

Simon Say's Stamp - where this weeks Challenge is 'Sparkle'
