Sketch challenge at Bearly Mine

So I'm back again, what's that twice in a week.

Yeh Yeh I know that would have to be a first in a very long time, but even though it's twice I'm still running a day late for this post.

So this week we have a "SKETCH" challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges and it was an awesome sketch and was just what I needed as I had a card order from a lady that works with my hubby for her sister's 40th so I actually managed to get this one done in one afternoon.

As always we have some amazing sponsors this week and they are

It's Christmas time at Emerald Faeries

Good afternoon fellow crafters

So I'm away with my hubby yet again having a wonderful time finishing my Christmas shopping and just chillin catching up on some DVD's and having a spa, hoping this will help my back feel a little better but no luck so far, maybe another spa after dinner tonight. We are unsure as to whether to go down the club for the smorgasbord for dinner or get Chinese delivered. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm what to do.

So onto why I am here today, I thought it was about time I updated my blog for our new challenge over at Emerald Faeries and it's "Christmas" time challenge.

I've seen that we have already quiet a few entries which is great to see especially at this time of the year as we all have so much going on. I haven't even sent my Christmas cards out yet and yet again I've left it too late to make them so I've bought a couple of packets this morning which will be going out tomorrow. My goal next year is to make all my Christmas cards by June 30, let's see if that happens or not. LOL LOL

So this month we have on offer

 Our lucky random winner will again receive
2 digital stamp of their choice or A printable Digital Kit
So here is my card, something a little different for Christmas but I just couldn't resist doing these colours, and also because I already had this image coloured and wanted to use my digi paper's from Bearly Mine Design these are beautiful papers and also my favourite colour combo.

So this is my card and I think I'm going to have to cut it short as I think the internet access we have here is running very low as everything is taking a very long time to upload.
The products I've used are
American Crafts cs
Bearly Mine Desings pp's
Marianne Designs, Joy Crafts & My Favourite Things Dies
Kindy Glitz
Marvvy Liquid applique
SU ink
So happy crafting everyone and I'm looking forward to seeing all your creations.
