Anyone care to join me for a bit of Carol singing

Hello and Good Morning - hope you've had a lovely weekend.

We had a smashing weekend.....on Friday we had another little theatre trip to London - this time we went to see Beautiful - The Carol King Story. This was a Christmas pressie for Megan and I have to say, it was absolutely brilliant. I didn't know a great deal about Carol King beforehand, and had no idea that she was behind so many songs that we're all so familiar with - fantastic performances from all of the cast and this is definately one I would recommend. I have always been a fan of musicals and we are very lucky to be so close to London and have these little treats from time to time.

Still on a musical theme and with another type of Carol in mind, I am very excited to tell you all about our new Christmas with the Cuties challenge - our theme this time

Christmas Carols and Songs

We've all got our favourites haven't we - as far as Carols are concerned mine would be O Holy Night, and when it comes to a Christmas song it would have to be Fairytale of New York all day long.

This challenge will be sponsored by

Who have become great friends of The Cutie Pie challenge, so we are delighted to have them with us at CWTC.

My own DT card is based on Frosty The Snowman and features
  • Joanna sheen signature dies - snowflake
  • the papers are from a very old Papermania Christmas stack - I actually bought it in a Paper Mill Shop, when they were still open, so that's how long ago!!!
  • I have used the reverse side of printed linen ribbon
  • sentiment is a LC designs mini stamp
  • Dovecraft acrylic dome stickers
