Joy - Filled Stockings


Well dare i say it, it's too hot !!! H had one of his friends round yesterday and i was going to take them to the local RSPB, but as it was so hot, i decided a walk in the woods with Whisper, get the  paddling pool in the garden and when they were tired a movie and an ice cream - why is the theory always better !!, they seem to bicker all day long - i think the weather got to them !!, so to shut my ears off to some of it, i decided to stamp and colour an image.

I wanted to enter the Winter Wonderland unusual colour challenge of Pink + / or Purple + Aqua + / or Green and i had the papers Squirrel used and did nearly used them, till i came across a gorgeous pack of pearlescent papers from Crafthouse 'Winter Wonderland' and some Dovecraft brads (that i seem to have had for ages), then finished it off with a tag sentiment, i think from Inkadinkadoo, but i seem to have lost the packaging for it.

Today's Card And Challenges :

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is : 'Pink + / or Purple + Aqua + / or Green' - yipee i've managed to include all 4

Sketch Saturday - where they are up to Sketch No: 217 and i love it, thank you

Ooh La La Creations - where Challenge No: 110 is 'A Recipe - 1 image / 2 Papers / 3 Embellishments'

Creative Inspirations - where Challenge No: 173 is 'A Colour Scheme'

Image - Penny Black - 'Joy - Filled Stockings'
Papers - Crafthouse - 'Winter Wonderland'
Brads - Dovecraft
Sentiment - I think Inkadinkadoo - 'Traditional Christmas Tag - It's'

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
