Claudia Loves Christmas......and so do I!

Good Morning my lovely blog chums, thank you so much for the very kind comments on my post yesterday as I now go headlong into year 8 of Blogging! 

I am feeling very Happy that it's Friday - the company I work for (in the real World) recently changed my working hours, so I decided to look upon this as an opportunity to reduce the hours and days that I do and I now no longer work on a Thursday or Friday. This is only my second week of doing this but last week was brilliant - having the extra couple of days off, I was completely on top of the housework, the dogs had longer walks, I felt soooo much less tired and when I went back into work on Monday I felt much happier in myself and actually enjoyed the three days that I'm in. I also managed to spend time last weekend making a wedding card for an order (note to self - don't forget to take a photo!!) and doing a bit of colouring.....a little bit of which, is featured on today's card......
I have used Claudia Loves Christmas, from Little Miss Muffet digi stamps - isn't she adorable....and is an absolute treat to colour, so will be appearing here a lot more over the course of the year.

Today's card features:

  • Claudia Loves Christmas
  • coloured with promarkers
  • glossy accents
  • Stardust Stickles
  • Martha Stewart border punch - oldie, can't recall the name
  • sentiment created on Serif page plus
  • Doodlebug Twine
  • magazine freebie paper
  • button from stash
I would like to enter these challenges:
In the Pink - Dies/Punches (only the one punch used, but hoping that the Pinkness makes us for it!)
ABC Christmas Challenge - C & D creature and dimension - my Creature name also starts with a C and I hope that the button adds Dimension

Cheerio for now, and have a lovely day xx
