Holiday Shopper


Well we had a sprinkling of snow, but by 10am it had all but gone, it did stay very cold all day though.  H was quite well enough to go back to school today, but he is now well enough to go in tomorrow. On Saturday night Alan and I took full advantage of my New Years Resolution, which is - to go out together at least once a month ( pay for a babysitter), and we went for a fabby meal at a fish resaurant.

I'm so happy and chuffed this week so far, as i found out yesterday i had come in the Top 5 at Cupcake Craft for Snowy and the Top 3 for November's Challenge at J And C Creations for my triple easel card Flower Bear - A Big Thank You To Both Challenges For Picking Me, It Means A Lot.

Today's image is one I've had for a while and never got round to using it (another New Year's Resolution, to use stamps from my stash, that i have not inked up before), even though I think it's cutie, the papers are DCWV - 'Christmas Stack / Rose Tinted', pearls are Papermania, Sentiment Tags are LOTV (that I have not used enough of) and ribbon is from my stash (I think I bought it America, about 3 years ago).

Today's Card And Challenges :

ABC Christmas  - where A is for 'Animals'

Winter Wonderland  - where the Challenge is 'Shopping'

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Black And White And A Splash Of Colour'

Totally Papercrafts - where Challenge No: 149 is 'Ribbon'
