hoping for joy...


Good morning everyone how was your weekend?...anything exciting?...we did nothing but Phil did do his bakeathon...he made my Dads Dundee cake and made pies and scones to his hearts content...he really filled the house with the most amazing smells...I don't know about all you lovely crafters but I really don't seem to be able to get into Christmas yet and the overload of decorations in the shops and advertising on tv is just annoying me atm and those singing ringing Christmas thingies are sssssoooooooo annoying lol...hopefully some Christmas spirit will hurry along soon...please...right now onto my card for today...how full of joy and happiness is this gorgeous Mo's Digital Pencil image in fact shes enough to put the christmas joy into any old scrooge lol...this is the stunning Hoppy Christmas...I just couldn't resist paper piecing her hat and stocking but coloured the rest of her using my usual distress inks...the stunning papers I used are from the Teresa Collins 6x6" Paper Pad -Santa's List...wow this pad is just stunning and has such an beautiful layout feel to it, I finished with a strip of glittery ribbon and a knot I kept from a gift our Daughter got ages ago (see never throw anything like this away)...the sentiment tag is from the same pad and I finished with three buttons from my stash...I bought the pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I turned the fab sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge upside down for my card and I'm also entering it for the Emerald Faeries Challenge and the Designed to Color Challenge too...I'm going to have a mega printing day today I have loads to print out and get colouring...I wonder is I can print out some festive spirit too lol...whatever your up to today I hope its a chilled relaxing one

gorgeous card hun, and this wee image is just adorable. If you manage to find any of that Christmas spirit, i'd love it if you could spare a bit, I can't seem to find any either, not sure if its because the time just seems to be flying by or not but it just doesn't seem as though Christmas is only a month away. I even bought some festive stuff in the hopes that it might help but it hasn't, really would like some to appear though soon otherwise I see see a huge Christmas eve dash. Hugs xx
