another mystery paper...

Good morning everyone me again...are you fed up with the virtual me yet lol...this image reminds me so much of Christmas when our Daughter was younger, every single year it was a tradition to trim the tree on the 1st December and she was in charge of getting all the sparkly things out of the boxes...I loved it so much and after we had finished trimming the tree Phil's job was to put the star on the top and switch on the lights...there's something very infectious about the excitement of a child at Christmas, you can almost feel what they feel...right now onto my card for toda and yet another mystery paper...now I can remember buying this and where, I can even remember I bought some Thickers with it too...but cant for the life of me remember the name or make...my memory has finally given up lol...this fabulous image is one of the new Sugar Nellie Christmas digis...this cutie is called Sparkle & Shine...I coloured her with distress ink and used the colours in the papers for her outfit...I finished with a deep strip of lace, pink ribbon and a green satin ribbon...I really like this colour combo for Christmas don't you...the sentiment is from another Crafty Inspirations stamp set from Funky Kits too...the sketch is another from Mojo Monday...have a wonderful day today everyone just me a comment and tell me what you think of today's card

I miss the children and decorating the tree with them now they are all grown up and have their own children to help them...but I do put mine up with the dog, he just sits there and watches every single thing I pick out of the box, then the lights go on, and he slinks back to his couch..probably thinking thanks goodness that drama is over..lol..dear Harry..

Gorgeous card Mina,thanks for the memory...beautiful colouring, and such a cute image.

luv CHRISSYxx
