What an awful week so far, roll on next week. I wish i'd had stayed in bed all week, although I can't sleep when I am in bed! Had an accident in the car on Tuesday on the way back from school. We were all okay but shook up. The driver of the lorry, who had backed into me was very aggressive which certainly didn't help. How I managed to stop the tears i've no idea, probably because of the children being there, after all I didn't want to upset them any further! Since then its been sorting out insurance, hire car etc, which proved more complicated than I hoped, after an hour on the phone to my insurance company yesterday I finally got things sorted, at least for the time being. I don't know about the rest of you ladies, but I don't usually get involved with these things, I let hubby do it, but yesterday he was away, and I had no choice. Made me realize just how much I rely on him!

Anyway didn't do any crafting yesterday but made this card the day before. I used some papers from one of the DCWV christmas pads, and the image is another beautiful whiff of joy designs.
The snowflakes are sequins and the christmas tree die cuts were some from a QVC TSV last year I believe.

I should have posted these on Tuesday after I made them, but with all that went on I didn't get round to it.

I managed to do two more challenges this week firstly the wonderful MOJO sketch, then secondly the Ismaki sketch. Both quick and simple cards a bit like me!


I love this adorable stamp, the papers were sent to me by my friend Vicki. You can't see very well from the photo that the hat fur and bobble has been glittered, double click on image to see close up. The ho, ho, ho sentiment from some stickers brought from Poundland last christmas.


Again the papers were sent to me from Vicki, the image is of course one of the fabulous Whiff of Joy images, the icicles are a x cut punch.
Well my loves, hope you are all enjoying a much nicer week, thank you for all my friends who have been giving me moral support this week, I treasure each and every one of you. Big hugs Linda x
