Christmas Cutie :)

Picture 038 copy

Hi peeps and hope everyone is ok xxx

We are back to normal now – or as normal as I ever get!!!! And we had a fab time in Spain -  we were there for the world cup final (yawn yawwwwwn) and seeing as they won, it was nice to be part of it. But it’s nice to be home again cos it was a bit too hot for moi. That said, it is persisting down today – it is really heavy rain as well, so a bit of sunshine wouldn’t go a miss as long as it isn't 40 degrees in the shade :(

So anyhoos, it’s Tuesday and time for another Papertake Weekly challenge which this week is one of my faves cos it’s all about cute, which I LOVE (you might have noticed!!)

11 copy And this image is just total cuteness I think.

She is gorgeous and she is one of the new Lili Of The Valley Christmas  releases and is called Dropping The Shopping. You can see it here lovelies.

I coloured her with Copics which you can get from Tracey at Dies To Die For in these colours -

100, C00, C1, C3, C5, E00, E21, E42, E50, R11, R27, R35, R46, YG0000, YG06, YG63

The papers are both Pink Petticoat and I think grey and red are just fab together for Chrimbly cards, I really do.

The poinsettias and holly leaves are also perfect for a bit of seasonal tarting up and these are both available from the always wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts – you can see the festive flowers here  and holly leaves here chicksters.

Yule love them (sorry – I can’t help it sometimes lol xxx)


This gorge red ribbon is one of my fave things at the mo.  It’s the most fab shade of red and once again you can get it from Wild Orchid Craftshere’s the link. It’s 25mm wide and I wanted something a little narrower for the strip so I just folded it in half and glued the edges together.



Flower Soft in Polar White makes fab snow. Just add a thick line of tacky glue (WOC do a good one) and sprinkle with Flower Soft and leave for a little bit so that it soaks into the glue.

And there’s me card.

I’m still catching up with work so I better get on with it – don't want to get me trotters slapped :(   

Have the fabbiest of days and I’ll see you soon if not sooner.

Huggiest of hugs xxx
