53 more sleeps

Just a really quick post, don't think I'd get away with waffling on again after this mornings post lol. Had a really quite productive day, managed to find a few more jobs to apply for and have sorted a bit more stuff out in room and managed to get 3 cards done!!!! and a 4th (my Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge) one is very nearly almost finished - yay - it's still missing something and can't work out what so before I got in a tizz with it I packed away and will have another go in the morning lol.

Anyways onto the first of the cards, this is for the Lili of the Valley Challenge, a sketch by Bev this week, I normally find working with a sketch fairly easy as I've used them for years on my scrapbook pages, but this one I found a bit tricky I think it was that it was quick a busy design so not my normal style. I had originally put in scalloped card at the top and the bottom but it was just too cluttered so I substituted them for these strips of paper cut from one of the 'Eskimo Kisses' paper. And yay I finally used the 'Big Star Christmas Ted' stamp with his hat on - YAY

Supplies: 'Christmas Ted - Big Star' Stamp by Lili of the Valley, 'Eskimo Kisses' Paper by Basic Grey, 'Tis the Season' Paper by Bo Bunny, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug, Snowflake Stickers by Do Crafts
Extras: White Card, Copics, Promarkers, Fineliner, Silver Ink Pad, Brads from Stash

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge...

Right I'm off to bed, will hopefully be back in the morning with card number 2 lol XOX
