not just for Christmas...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and the weather hasn't been too unkind to you...I had a great crafting day yesterday, one of those days when the only time I stopped was when my stomach starting having a conversation with me...I found loads of papers I had printed off months ago and put into a file 'for safe keeping', why do we do that and then totally forget about them...I also found a bag of buttons I thought I had lost when I bought them, I dropped a pen and it rolled under my sofa, so armed with my trusty extra long ruler (well a girl has to use an ruler for fishing under sofas just in case of creepy crawlies doesn't she) and fished out the pen and a bag of buttons, now that's what I call a result don't you...I used a colour combo I hardly ever use today, green and red...see its not just for Christmas is it...the stunning image is from Sugar Nellie's Simply Adorable digi collection...this is the stunning Winifred...I coloured her with distress inks and the stunning papers are from the hidden file of digi papers and is from Nitwit Collections and are from the Gingerfellas Too paper collection, I love gingham's and checks don't you...I used my Tomic punch again, loving this punch and finished with some white seam binding bows, some of the buttons from the hidden bag and a Prima flower...the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge...I'm off out for my breakfast this morning, my lovely Daughter invited me to her house for a cooked breakfast and why on earth would I refuse that then, any excuse for bacon and eggs and cooked for me too, bliss...whatever your up to today I hope you have a brilliant one

WOW Minaret she is stunning and so is your colouring. I love the papers and not Christmassy at all.

This is absolutely stunning Mina! Love your papers and that image is striking, superbly colored as always. Love your flower.

About the cuttlebug plates. C plates sells for about $11 each and B plates sell in packs of two for $10. Matt got me one C plate and so far seven B plates so he has saved me roughly $46 US.
