not just for Christmas...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy, I had a semi successful crafting day yesterday and managed 3 dt cards, but I so need to do so so much more...at least over the last couple of days I have done some fabulous blog hopping and plan to do loads more tonight, I so miss it when I don't have time to do hopping, I love a good surf don't you but I'm so easy distracted by links lol...I wont get any crafting done today as my lovely Dad needs some shopping and I feel a coffee to put the world to rights is desperately needed...well it wont sort itself out will it lol...my card for today is using a Christmas stamp, don't you just love it when you can use something all year round..I used this stunning little Wish Upon A Star from Funky Kits and with the addition of some cute teeny tiny pearls and a load of glitter I changed its use, I think it works really well don't you...I coloured her with Distress inks and I'm so sorry but I keep forgetting to keep a note of the colours I use to add at the end, but I will do my best in future...the lush papers are from the new Basicgrey Little Black Dress paper pad, this pad is so lush, when you first look at its you think its all greys and blacks but it isn't there's some pale blues and creams/gold as well, there's also an amazing animal print in it that I cant wait to use...this pad and loads of other crafting goodies were a Christmas gift from the fabulous Karen at Sugar Nellie, isn't that amazing...I finished my card with some fabulously glitzy sparkly ribbon and a bow and a couple of crown pins from the Ribbon Girl...that fabulous sketch is from the Sugar Bowl challenge and I'm entering this for the Basicgrey Challenge, have a wonderful day everyone and whatever your up to I hope you have fun
