baby its cold outside...


Good morning everyone did you have a nice weekend...all your shopping finished and the cards written and posted too I bet lol...hope your not as disorganised as me, I don't know whats up with me this Christmas but I usually have everything done by now and I'm the person people are jealous off and am so organised it makes you sick, but not this year...I need to catch up and get things done don't I...I blame Phil you know, hes a distraction and makes me go out and enjoy myself when I really should be home wrapping and making cards...well I'm sticking to that reason anyway lol...we headed out yesterday and wow Londonderry was busy...now considering the shops don't open until 1pm we were there at 1.15pm and all the car parks were bursting at the seams...we were getting dizzy going round and round the multistory but we finally got one and headed for the Continental market there grabbed a bite to eat and hit the shops...did we get the rest of our present...er...nope...but Phil bought me a fabulously mumfy fair isle sweater...lush pink and so so cosy (btw if you don't know what mumfy means, its the sort of feeling you get when you put your lovely warm fleece jimjams on)...its my Christmas after lunch, dessert and game sweater when everyone is cosy, full and ready for some TV and a snooze...that's the perfect mumfy moment oh and we bought some food from M&S Christmas range, just to try of course lol and we had to make a detour to the chemist as our beautiful Daughter has got conjunctivitis in one of her eye...yuck poor thing but hopefully the ointment we got will sort her out ...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts Monthly challenge, the theme this month was chosen by our lovely Silvie (wow wow wow wait until you see her make for the challenge its amazing) and she chose Celebration...so anything to celebrate something in fact...I chose to celebrate Winter in my card and used this gorgeous C.C. Designs Mashi's Muffins Baby It's Cold Outside  stamp for mine, isn't she fab, I coloured her with my usual distress inks and used this beautiful Magnolia Winter Night 12" x 12" Paper with her, I ripped the bottom to make it look like she was standing on snow, I finished with a yummy grey gingham ribbon from my stash, a scattering of gems from the Mixed Bag Clear Flat Acrylic Round Gems - 3mm, 4mm & 5mm and glittered her up with my usual Stickles glitter Glue - Star Dust, everything except the ribbon is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts ...I made the sketch up as I went along and am entering this for the Totally Gorjuss challenge, {PIN}spirational challenge and the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge too...I'm off to get my hair cut today and then a little mooch around the craft shop I think...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and I hope you manage to get the things you need done
