That's it for another year.....

Good morning everyone and I hope that everyone has survived the day.  Santa spoiled me once again and I had a lovely day.  We did some visiting then went to the local Indian Restaurant for dinner, I was stuffed and brought a doggy bag home and then did some more visiting in the evening. Hoping that today is just a chill-out PJ day.  Looking forward to hearing about everyone else's day.

I am starting to get crafting withdrawal symptoms as not been at my table for a few days now.  Here are a couple of cards I did at the start of the week.  This first one is using the lovely Demure stamp from Sugar Nellie.  I have entered her into the challenges over at Charisma Cardz - "Anything but Christmas" and Colour Create Challenge - Pink, Burgundy & Ivory with Roses. 

This cheeky character is Wee from Whiff of Joy and  he is just delightful and I have used him for Stamp Something - "Christmas".
