its becoming an addiction...

Good morning everyone how are you all?...well and happy?...bbbbrrrrr its freezing here and the ground is white with hailstones, so here it comes...oh no run away lol...poor Phil in the hope of kick starting my festive mojo got all the Christmas decorations from the attic, I had a little rummage through them but nope no festive spirit popped up yet...I seriously need help to get some festivity from somewhere so all suggestions gratefully accepted I mean for goodness sake even the Marks and Spencer's ads aren't working lol...right now my card for today...this Sugar Nellie Simply adorable is one of my all time favourites...hes called Nathan and like all the adorable's hes a dream to colour...I used my distress inks and teamed him up with some stunning papers from the Carta Bella So this is christmas 6x6 paper pad, I'm sorry to say that I bought the last one from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...oops lol...but there are loads of other Christmas pads to choose from...I added a spotty bow and finished with a mixture of buttons from the button packs at Bunny Zoe's...buttons are beginning to become a bit of an addiction for me aren't they...the fabulous sketch is from the Mojo Monday Challenge I love love love their sketches...I'm also entering it for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge and the Lady Anne's Challenge too...if the weather wasn't so white here I think I would go for a little mooch in town but the way my legs go from underneath me I'm as dangerous in snow as one the stairs so may just stay put...I think a bit of safe crafting sitting on my lush comfy office chair is called for instead what do you think?...whatever your up to today I hope wherever you are its warm and cosy, I wont be around tomorrow but will be back on Thursday with my Mo's Digital Pencil monthly blog hop post

Oh this is gorgeous Mina! The colours are stunning. I adore this stamp too, because he reminds me so much of my son. He looks just like him (same hair cut and everything) and my son also *always* has a bear in his arms, lol.
I'm thinking I need to make another card with this image soon...

As for getting into the festive spirit, can't help you there, unfortunately. :-( x

Fab card and you are on the way as your colours are festive. I had the same problem no festive creativity but I got some gingerbread flavour latte sachets and I've had 3 not sure if I like them of not but when I had the first I had several Christmas images out on my desk and some papers and sat drinking the gingerbread coffee and I actually managed to make a couple of Christmas cards. i still don't feel festive but it helped me make a start.

Mina, your coloring always makes me go WOW! It is gorgeous. I just bought some Carta Bella Christmas paper the other day & can't wait to make a card with it! It has turned very cold here in the last few days (-13C this morning!) & lots of snow. Hope you find your Christmas mojo soon...time is marching on! Stay warm.
Hugs, Renee
