Jingle bells...

Good morning everyone, well are you all prepared for the guy in the big red suit yet?...I bet I have put Jingles bells in your head now, you will be humming it all day, I did when I made this card lol...we did the dreaded supermarket shop yesterday, what with nipping between supermarkets and heaving ourselves through the crowds (I think everyone had the idea of getting it out of the way early) it took us an amazing 6 hours...yes 6 hours...now how on earth can four people eat that much food, although I do have my lovely Dad and my Sister and her family on Boxing Day too...I managed to get a bit of blog hopping done last night but I nodded off at about 8 and didn't wake up until 11, I'm looking forward to another big session of blogging tonight as I so enjoyed looking at your blogs last night, no napping tonight though...this Christmas lark is hard work isn't it I was shattered, but at least I dragged Phil around with me to show him what I normally have to do alone, although I think its faster on my own and I don't have someone putting double what I normally buy in my trolley lol...right now onto my card for today, how cute and sweet is this fabulous Christmas Bells image from the Pachela Studios collection at Cuddly Buddly, I love this cute little rabbit and cant resist him, I will have to go buy some more I think, I coloured him with distress inks...I used some more of this lush Bo Bunny Father Christmas 6x6 paper pad I bought from Charmed Cards & Crafts, I didn't think this lush paper needed anything that might cover it so I just added some rich red satin ribbon to finish...the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the Papertake Weekly challenge too...I'm off to spend most of today with my lovely Dad he has to have some very unpleasant tests and scans in hospital, I feel for him but at least I will be there to keep him company...keep your fingers crossed they don't find anything that shouldn't be there...whatever you up to today I hope its a quiet shopping free one

Isn't it funny how it does take longer when we take a partner with us..and sooo much more ends up in the trolley (and all "bargains" lol). Mina this is a really lovely card. Wishing you a Merry Xmas and a great New Year. I have really enjoyed your blog this year!

Oh bless, just look at him clinging on! How simply adorable sweetie, 's made me feel all warm and fuzzy. Certainly more warm and fuzzy than last night when we did our supermarket run - good grief. I had a nervous breakdown in the dairy aisle. What is the matter with some people?!!! Anyhoo, have a good day babes! Hugs Sxx

adorable card, mina! merry Christmas :)

Rufus said...

Poor little guy is hangin' on for dear life! He's cute and the papers are so yummy, the ribbon is just right. Sure hope that all your darling Dad's test come back perfect. Makes for a nervous time till you get the results. I've got that coming up in Jan. But he got a good report today, so I'm going with the assumption that Jan will be fine!
I've got to go do some shopping tomorrow, I'm sure it will be a mad house. Horror, I dislike grocery shopping at the best of times!
Merry Christmas to you and yours,
Hugs,

Linda said...
