Some sweet sugary candy...


Good morning everyone I hope your all well and wherever you are the weather is being kind to you...I am exhausted, we went out yesterday and got my boots and I bought Phil's Christmas present...a stunning John Rocca coat which he looks lush in...phew thank goodness for that one less present to worry about...then did a bit more shopping from my list and lunch, then food shopping then back home...I put my new curtains up (they are about 60cms too long though) I didn't take them up yet because I think they should settle before I start chopping into them, then we put our new tree up in our living room...omg it is HUGE, we cant even reach the top and I will need a chair to put the star on the top...although I am a little bit height challenged, that's another way of saying I'm short lol...we ended up having to move our really heavy chest of drawers and I jammed my hand in the doorway...ouch that was sore and blood dripping down and a bit bruised but I will live to lift another day...we didn't sit down until 10pm and still didn't decorate the tree or put the other one up in the kitchen yet...groan, ever wish you hadn't started something lol...I'm going to catch up on tidying and I need to make a few cards today and hopefully we will get the tree decorated (Phil doesn't want me to do it before he comes in from work) and the rest of the decorations put out some time before midnight tonight...


right now onto my card for today which is using this beautiful little sweetie from Sugar Nellie, its called Knitted with love and I coloured her with distress inks...I'm so sorry but although the papers are stunning I have no idea who they are by, I think it might be My Mind's Eye but I'm not sure...I cut one of the reindeer from the paper for an embellishment and finished with loads of pearls scattered around and another of those lush Glitter ribbons from Crafts and Me, this one is the Cosmic Brown/Gold...the sketch is an old one from Mojo Monday and I'm entering this for The Ribbon Girl challenge, Charisma Cardz challenge and the Cards Galore Challenge too...now onto some sweet sugary candy 


over at the Sugar Nellie blog we are offering you the chance to win some goodies every single day from now until the 12th...all you need to do is post a comment on all the posts with this picture on it, post a link on your blog (sidebar is fine) and sit back and keep your fingers crossed...so hop on over leave a comment on my post for today, yesterdays post from Pat and wait for the rest of the posts this week to appear...good luck with the candies...right I'm off to get started with my tidying and crafting...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

That image is so sweet, Mina, and I love that knitted heart. I always hated having to trim the tree, although I usually enjoyed it once I got started LOL. Haven't had a tree since we moved to Crete, although we do decorate the living room, esp. the part where the fireplace is. And we have this great ledge high up on two sides where we can place all the Christmas cards we receive...
Well done on getting your boots and a present for Phil.
