Santa will be pleased...



Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy...I had every intention of getting ready early and heading into town but the best laid plans and all that...I got caught up with chores and doing a bit of surfing and tidying and before I knew it was 1pm so I headed for the shower and got dressed with the war paint on then Phil rang to say he was coming home early and did I need to go to the shops...so instead of my Christmas present shopping and mooch around the shops I ended up grocery shopping...exciting eh lol...oh well we did get something nice for dinner and had a little look around the supermarket and bought loads of Christmas food goodies (just to try out of course lol)...in fact we only went for bread and a couple of essentials and I ended up spending £30, that will teach me to go to the supermarket with a hungry man in tow wont it, its amazing what jumps into your trolley when you aren't looking...right now onto my card for today how stunningly beautiful is this Kenny K beauty...Santa will be pleased to find her waiting for him beside his sleigh wont he lol, she is called On Vixen I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with this amazing double sided paper from My Minds Eye Holly Jolly Collection...its called Candy Canes and is brilliant for this beauty isn't it...I finished with a stamped sentiment, I used part of the name band of the paper to stamp on and added some beautiful flowers, I cant remember what these are called but I know I bought them at Bunny Zoe's Crafts just before last Christmas...the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday I love their sketches don't you, they always make me think about the design of the card, I'm also entering it for the Party Time Tuesdays challenge and Heart 2 Heart challenges too...my lovely Dad is back from Belfast today, I was texting my Sister yesterday and she said he had a fabulous weekend and has enjoyed his visit so I hope he is rested and happy...these coming weeks are very difficult for him, my Mums Birthday would have been the 25th and the anniversary of her passing is the 13th December...its a hard time for all of us but of course especially him, my heart goes out to him and I feel his pain...I'm sure we will be heading out for put the world to rights coffee so watch the headlines lol...whatever your up to today have a fabulous one
