Happy Liverpool Christmas

Time still seems to be running away and I've still got a list a mile long of things to be done lol. But I managed to get a few of them crossed off today.

I should probably also explain the post title - some of my family used to come up to Liverpool for Christmas and now cos of work and little kids they come up a bit later and the night is now known as Liverpool Christmas lol. So last night was 'Liverpool Christmas'. Was really good, and good to catch up with them all.

Anyways onto the card, I wanted to make sure I entered the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge cos I'd missed a few cos of running out of time. Anyways this weeks challenge was stitching and straightaway I had the idea of stitching a flower stem and using a chipboard flower. I've used some of my new papers - I love them the colours and nice and bright and spring like.

Supplies: 'Coffee Nikki' and Sentiment Stamp by Ladybug Crafts Ink, 'Fine and Dandy' Papers by My Mind's Eye, Card by DCWV, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug
Extras: White Card, Chipboard Flower, Green Thread, Yellow & Green Ink Pad, Copics, Promarkers, Glossy Accents

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

By The Cute And Girly - Springtime

Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 62 - Spring into Action

Right had better get on - just finished watching Jurassic Park - not seen it in years, and now Jaws is on - night of classics lol

PS Oooooooooooo I've just noticed on Kerry's blog that she has some new ribbon and felt on her site so I'm feeling a bit of a shop coming on lol XOX
