altogether now aaaaahhhhhhh bless - Whiff of Joy challenge 89 Janes sketch + City Crafter challenge week 25 - Hooray for the holidays

Good morning everyone, yes I went to Ikea and yes I bought loads...isn't it weird that you can find so many things you didn't know you needed in Ikea lol, did you all have a fantastic day I hope so...I bought two new wardrobes for the spare room and picked some amazing bedroom furniture for our bedroom but Phil wouldn't stretch that far, then we went to the Papermill where I discovered their paper boxes have reduced in price and you now get a huge twice the size box for less money than the small one used to be, couldn't find anything else I wanted there except a glittery chipboard alphabet, cant resist a bit of sparkle lol..then we went to the Gaggia coffee shop and had a mooch to see if we could get some different coffee for our beloved bright yellow Gaggia machine and of course had a cup of coffee...anyway enough babbling Mina my card for today is for the fab sketch by Jane over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge, isn't this little fella sssssooooooo cute, I just want to pick him up and give him a hug in his little romper suit don't you, the stamps called Sammy with Licorice (of course when I bought him a couple more fell into the basket, does that happen to you too)...I coloured him with Distress inks, I enjoyed colouring him so much I even coloured the hats on the snowmen on his suit, I used paper and embellishments (the holly, berries and tag) from the My Minds Eye Holly Jolly paper and Accessory pack from Bunny Zoe's, lush pack this, I'm so pleased I bought it...I finished my card with a red gingham ribbon and bow, Im also entering this for the Holidays challenge at City Crafter challenge, I hope you like it and dont forget to join in with my Bunny Zoe Crafts candy if you havent already...have a great Sunday everyone
