for the love of paper...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and keeping warm, it was a beautiful day yesterday here then the rain started at about 5 and hardly stopped and its not quite chilly...well I'm chilly anyway...I spoke to my gorgeous Phil last night and he is coughing and has a sore chest...oops...I will get the blame wont I...I managed to get a bit of crafting done this morning before I went out with my lovely Dad, who by the way cancelled his appointment and we went for coffee instead and now hes off on his travels to Belfast to stay with one of my Sisters...right now onto my card for today which I promise is my last Christmas card this week...I just cant help it though with so many lush amazing papers about I love making Christmas cards don't you...this pad is so stunning, its one of the new Fancy Pants 6x6 pads from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and its called Saint Nick, I love love love it so much I didn't follow any sketch but let the paper make the layout...the teeny stockings and sentiment are cut from other sheets of the same pad...there should have been two more stocking but I lost them, couldn't find them anywhere then discovered them stuck to the back of my fluffy dressing gown last night lol...the gorgeous little girl is from the new Christmas release Bildmalarna stamps...this sweetie is called Mimosa Christmas Light, I coloured her with distress inks and finished the card off with some gingham ribbon and a bow...I'm entering this for the Crafty Ribbons Anything Goes challenge, Winter Wonderland Girly challenge and the Stamptacular Sunday Just Sayin' challenge too...I'm working on a couple of projects at the min that I have wanted to have a go at...ssssshhhhhh cant tell you yet though so its off to the craft room for me today, whatever your up to have a fantastic day everyone and watch out for sticky things stuck to your bum lol
