Traditional Colours (for once)

Yay finally seem to be feeling better (hopefully - thank you for all the get well wishes) and managed to get a couple of cards done and Christmas cards at that! So feel like I'm getting somewhere with them now. And made up cos I know what I'm going to do for my Dad's Christmas Card (he normally gets shop-bought ones cos he's so hard to think of something that he might like/appreciate) so I'm going to try and get that made over the weekend  :)

I got these papers a few weeks ago, not my usual colour scheme lol, but I love the Crafts House papers, all pearly too so very shimmery and makes me feel all cosy. And I finally inked up my 'Carolling Magnum' Stamp yay I've had it ages but I think I've been waiting till it was a bit closer to Christmas lol, I know it's sensible to start making Christmas cards in July or all year but I can't make mayself do it, it's like shops putting the decorations up in September, like trying to wait as long as possible to put the decorations up to make it seem more special, and think that's why resist Christmassy things till November lol. But anyways here's the card...

how cool is the glittery rug!!! I want one (though a quick inspection of my bedroom floor reveals that I already have it lol)

Supplies: 'Carolling Magnum and Lily' Stamp by Ladybug Crafts Ink, 'Plum Pudding' Papers by Crafts House, Card by Doodlebug, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug
Extras: White Card, Promarkers, Copics, Gold Ink Pad

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

Totally Gorjuss Challenge 56 - Traditional Christmas Colours

Alphabet Challenge - C for Cats

Phew that was a lot lol. And I've finished my entry for the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge, I love it think it's my new favourite card lol. Hopefully going to get some more done over the weekend and maybe go and see Harry Potter though might wait till next week when the kids are in school lol.

Off to start the fun job of backing up all my photos now :S wish me luck lol got 100 DVDs so I'm hoping that's enough lol. XOX

This is a great card Helen. I know what you mean about a glittery floor, I noticed the other day that my floor was slightly shimmery! And I do use the vacuum before you ask!! Take care. pami x
