finger crossed...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and managing to keep warm...well fingers crossed there are no spelling mistakes today...for those of you that didn't see before I managed to correct it as fast as I could...I misspelled Shabby Shutters and put an i where the u is lol...and its not the first time just the first time someone noticed before I did, oopsie lol...see I told you I was distracted...well I had a fantastic surprise yesterday morning and a bit of a chuckle too but I will tell you a bit further down about that...onto my card first which is using this fantastically drawn Ragged Santa from Mo's Digital Pencil, isnt he just fantastic and perfect to colour, well he was but I just had to use the dreaded red didn't I (groan!!!)...I used my usual distress inks and you will be pleased to know not any shabby shutter in sight lol...the lush yummy papers are from the Bo Bunny 6x6 Father Christmas paper pad, because the papers are so lush I didn't need to use anything else except two felt holly leaves cut from a ribbon of them and some berries I have in my stash...I'm entering this for the Papertake Weekly challenge, Lollipop Crafts challenge and Just Us Girls challenge too...

yesterday morning the postman brought me a large packet and was grinning from ear to ear when he handed it to me, ooooooohhhh somethings tickled his fancy I thought until I looked at the package addressed to 'The Lovely Mina' then my address lol...it was a lovely gift from the beautiful Lee (Crafty Loops) for a teeny favour I did for her...oooohhhh look at all these stunning handmade flowers she sent me...there are some fantastic felt roses which are so beautiful and there is a set of bead headed pins that I cant wait to use either...thank you so much Lee...I'm of to have a play with some of these today and of out to help my Daughter pick her dress for her work Christmas party (which means I get to hold her handbag while she tries on size 8 dresses lol)...whatever your up to today have a fabulous warm one

Fabulous job on the red Mina. Lovely Mina you are such a dear even when you make typos. Maybe the postman read your blog yesterday before the typo was fixed and that why he was laughing at the "lovely Mina"! Wonderful goodies, enjoy playing with them. Hugs, Linda
