whats a teeny bit of green between friends...

Good morning everyone, did you see the new Bunny Zoe's Crafts candy yesterday, its two post below if you would like a chance of winning, or click on the link at the top of my sidebar...wow how fast is the holiday season whizzing by, one second its October and the next its a few days to the big day...is it just me or is time whizzing by this year...it must be the season for hand and arm injuries...first my Dads hand (which is much much better) and then we found out last night that one of Phil's Sister has broken her wrist slipping on a floor at work....ouch it sounds painful and she is just a teeny tiny wisp of a thing too so hasn't any meat to cushion her fall, unlike me who would probably bounce lol...I hope shes ok and she will just have to let her other half do all the Christmas cooking for her...my lovely Phil is on two weeks holiday so I'm expecting some lush home cooked meals, my idea of cooking when hes away is opening a tin of soup or making a sandwich, I can cook I just find it a chore and to cook just for me seems a waste of time...anyway I can get a lot in a sandwich believe me lol...right onto today's card which is one of those ones that just go to show you don't need to use Christmas papers to make a Christmas card...I used some of the Prima Madeline 6x6 paper pad and teamed it up with the stunning Whimsy stamps Touched with Love image, stunning image isn't it...I coloured it with distress inks and shock horror would you believe no glitter even on her spectacular wings...I finished with some lush lace, sating ribbon and these beautiful Prima roses, the gold tint on them is beautiful, I punched some leaves and added a couple of buttons to finish...the gorgeous sketch is from Simon Says stamp Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Allsorts challenge (its a brown and blue colour combo but I hope they will forgive the little bit of green) and the Charisma Cardz challenge...I have a project to finish today so wont be going out until its finished (you will get to see it Christmas Eve)...whatever your up to today be careful I don't want to hear of anymore injuries, two is quite enough lol
