Its been ages!

Its been ages since my last blog post. What with being ill (all better now, thankfully) trying to get stock ready for a craft fair,  Christmas and my husband being ill too,  blogging has been put on the back burner. I apologise to my teamies and our fantastic and long suffering co-ordinater, Jane.

But I'm back, luckily Christmas is two weeks away and have just a couple of cards to go international with a wing and a prayer for a good postal service.

Our Theme this week on the One Stitch At a Time Challenge blog *277 is Anything Goes with Lots of Sparkle and will run for a month. Lets see those fab Christmas and New Year cards.

*** This will be the very last One Stitch At A Time challenge but my fab Teamies will be back in February with a shiny new challenge blog and some exciting new themes. I can't remember when I started with the blog but it has been some time and its been wonderful.  Thank you to all those of you who have taken the time to leave me a comment or two. 

For my card this week I chose Coosty Creations Holly Girl.

This is a real vintage image so I've kept her fairly plain to show her off. I've coloured her with a mix of Pro-Markers and some Copics too.  The oval has been cut with a Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals and the gold card with Grand Scallop Ovals. I wish Spellbinders would bring back these large dies but perhaps Creative Expressions will bring out some new ones.

My card for Challenge *276

I bagged this card up and sold it at the Craft Fair and the lady was delighted as she thinks her husband would like her to dress like this on Christmas Day!

My card for Challenge *275

I loved this image of Poor Pumpky.
