nothing says Christmas like a green spotty hat...


Good morning everyone...hands up who has their Christmas tree up yet...er...that wouldn't be us then lol...poor Phil didn't get home until sixish and by the time we ate and caught up with the chatter for the day it was too late to start putting the living room one up...but I have a tree ordered online which we will pick up today so will get them both up today hopefully....my lovely Dad rang to see if I fancied a little mooch around the shops so we headed out and I bought some more baubles, some lush tin ornaments and a box of white tipped pine cones and a hanging set of tin hearts which jangle away but I have a feeling after a while they will grind a bit lol...we were walking around a shop and Christmas songs were playing over the tanoy and walking past one of the assistants he was singling away to them, I said 'someones happy, you sound really festive'...his reply ' its day 1, wait until the 24th I will be sick of the sounds of this soundtrack'...bless him lol...right my card for today is using an amazing image from the wonderful Mo's Digital Pencil, I love the face on this stunning Lhasa Apso with Santa Hat don't you...so funny and cute...I coloured him very simply by shadowing him with distress inks and paper pieced his hat and bow...the fabulously christmassy paper is from Echo Park's Merry Christmas collection and is called Winter Wonderland...lush isn't it...I finished with a fantastic sparkly Cosmic Green/Gold Glitter Ribbon-25mm ribbon from Crafts & Me...this is a stunning ribbon and its available in loads of colours too (I have a few more to show you so watch out for them), and a sentiment tag cut from the name strip of the paper...the lush sketch is from the Papertake Weekly challenge and I'm also entering it for the Creative Inspirations challenge and the Cute Card Thursday challenge too...we are off out today, Phil's work is so so busy atm we have to take any opportunity to get all our Christmas shopping done while we can just in case he has to work weekends again and of course we have to pick up our lush new 7.5 ft Christmas tree, cant wait...whatever your up to today I hope its something festive and fun
