We wish you a merry christmas!

This is the first card that I had done in ages that has not had to be a DT card and at long last I have managed to do one that fits the challenge at the The Sugar Bowl where they have a great sketch to follow and the other option was to try something different - the difference for me was that I have completely coloured in the image, including the background - never done this before.

The stamp is a Sugar Nellie one from Funky Kits called Festive Friends and the papers are all just scraps that I had left in my box - I think the striped one may be last years My Mind's Eye.

Well it looks like we may be enjoying the calm before the storm here today in the Highlands of Scotland as we have yet more gales and snow forecast. I only hope that it is a bit better by the beginning of next week as we need to get to Edinburgh on Monday evening to catch a flight to Spain first thing on Tuesday morning, and after the disaster that we had on the 17th December last year when we landed up spening a week at Heathrow airport, I can only hope and pray that this year will be a little less stressful!!

Have a great week.
