My fave colour combo....


Hope you are all well and not too cold! It's freezing here today and we're even having the odd flurry of snow - my 2 year old, Charlie, asked me if it was Christmas - bless him! :-)

Now, first of all I just want to apologise about getting so far behind with my commenting.  All the wedding preparations are in full swing and it leaves me very little time to sit at the computer.... I'll make sure I get a chance to comment on some of everyone's most recent makes though - promise! I have managed to find the odd moment to do some crafting though. This is probably my last just for fun card for a while - I'll have to concentrate on getting the one's done that I need to make or they won't get done in time!

Oh, and what a surprise.... It's this little cutie from LOTV again :-)

I've used my fave colour combo for this card - it lets me use my new ribbon I got for Christmas too :-)

A close up of the image:

I used:
Image and sentiment - LOTV
Papers - Forever Friends Pink Parfait, Papermania Henbury Lane
Kraft cardstock
Xcut Daisy border punch
Card candi and ribbon from Father Christmas :-)

Passion for ProMarkers - New Beginnings
Sketch and Stash - Free choice sketch:
Sketch 8
Right, I'm off to make a cuppa to try to defrost my fingers. And then I'm spending the day making table confetti..... :-)

Love 'n' hugs,
