hang on tight, Christmas is on its way...

Good morning everyone I hope you all had a fantastic weekend...I'm feeling even more human today, thank goodness for that I hear you all sigh, you must have been fed up to the back teeth hearing me moan and feel sorry for myself...I went to Boots yesterday to get some cough medicine for night time to help me sleep and took some yesterday afternoon at 4pm, yes you've guessed it I finally woke up at 9.15 lo, but I did manage to catch up with some blogging and thoroughly enjoyed my little surf around your lush blogs, I will catch up with everyone else tonight and my challenge blogging, phew maybe I should take myself back to bed Im exhausted just typing this lol...now that is good stuff isn't it, anybody want some lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this fabulous Emerald Faerie Garden digi called The Larakins, how fab are these two sweeties and I know they aren't strictly for Christmas but they work so well for a Christmas card don't you think, I coloured them with distress inks and glittered up their wings...ok now these are more scraps of paper I'm afraid, so little in fact there is no name on them but I have a feeling they are Cosmo Cricket...the fab ribbon is thanks to my mate Jak for reminding me I had it, imagine having forgotten all about this lush Christmas word ribbon...amazing the stuff we have stashed away isn't it, I finished with a few buttons to match...the lush sketch is from the Inkspirations challenge and I'm also entering this for the Fab n Funky Bingo challenge (I chose Digi Image, Ribbon and 3 papers or layers option) and the Cardmadfairy digi challenge which is lots of layer, I defo think I have that covered don't you...I forgot I had to go with my wonderful Dad for an appointment he has had ages (good thing he reminded me isn't it lol) so my lock in craft day will have to wait until tomorrow...whatever your up to have a fantastic day everyone

Hi Mina
I'm so sorry it's been such an age since I paid you a visit and I'm also sorry to hear that you've been poorly but you're on the mend now it seems.
There are too many cards I've seen here for me to comment on them all individually but your work is as fabulous as usual - you always produce such stunning cards!
Take care!

I just adore the layout of this card! How awesome to have them hanging from the circle!!! I might have to case that little diddy:) The waves in the ribbon add some wonderful texture and depth as well.
