THANK YOU plus Secret Crafters Challenge/Pollycraft challenge wk1

Firstly I would like to thank everyone that left such a lovely comment on my blog yesterday regarding my car accident. It is very much appreciated that so many of you took the time to show concern and it has totally lifted my spirits. It does seem that just as you get one thing sorted and life seems to be looking brighter something comes along to knock you back down. I did have a restless night with lots of thinking but the suns shining this morning and im up again and looking on the bright side of things. I wasn't hurt and the car has little damage, so I was indeed very lucky. I feel sure my bad luck must have run its course by now. I didn't do the school run this morning, darling hubby did it but I will be up bright and breezy tomorrow morning and back behind the wheel. Again, thank you for the encouragement!
So because I was up last night I did manage to do a bit of crafting and have made cards for two challenges this week.
SECRET CRAFTERS CHALLENGE
This is my entry into this weeks secret crafters challenge, i've used this image before I know, I coloured up a batch of them, this is the last one you'll be glad to know. I think he looks so snug in his little christmas hat, bless! Papers are DCWV and the image has been coloured in with pro markers with glittered fur!
Snowflakes are sequins and the candles are brads from Poppicrafts.


POPPICRAFTS CHALLENGE WK1
I adore these new stamps by Pollycrafts, these are designed by the talented Paula. I have used papers from a DCWV christmas stack. Delightful 'Mo' has been coloured in using pr0-markers with stickles highlights. The snowflakes are confetti and the studs are from my stash. Ribbon from poppicrafts

Thats it from me, I will be back at the weekend with some blog candy up for grabs. So as they say watch this space! Big hugs to you all Linda x
