the first of many...

Good morning everyone I hope you all had a good weekend, I had intended to have a blogging night last night but I fell asleep and didn't wake up for hours so many apologies everyone but with all the DT work I have atm its going to take a teeny while longer to get round all your lush blogs, but I will I promise...well we raided the attic, what exactly is it with men and attics...whenever I go to look for something Phil has always 'tidied it away' in the attic...must be their bear instinct and they are hiding them for when they hibernate...I found the bed covers I was looking for though, then we had a little mooch in the Town, and I convinced Phil he had to have a feature wall in the farmhouse living room and for that he needed wallpaper, I even managed to get him to buy the one I had my eye on...omg how good am I at convincing lol...although Phil bless him would give me the earth if he could...right my card for today is one of the first of many many Christmas cards I will have to start making and what a perfect excuse to use this cutie Sugar Nellie stamp called Snow Buddies...how sweet are they together, I coloured them with distress inks and added loads and loads and loads of glitter but I think I put a tad too much on the snowman and he ended up with a dirty looking face from it all...the gorgeous embossed and glittered paper is from Making Memories and the sentiment is from a page of sentiments from them too...I used some lush glitter board to punch out some Martha Stewart snowflakes and a smalled older punch too, I finished with a couple of ribbons and a bow...the lush sketch is from Stampin' Royalty challenge and I'm also entering it for the Allsorts challenge and I'm sure their was a Christmas challenge somewhere but I forgot where...I'm off to my craft room today and am determined to get all the work that needs done finished and sorted out so I can get blogging tonight...whatever your up to today have a good one
