A Card At Last!

Good morning
 
Hope you are all well and those of you who went to Ally Pally yesterday had a great day.  I was intending to go with my friends Marianne and Lynsey but because I haven't really felt in the mood for crafting the last few weeks decided to give it a miss this time.

Anyway at last I have a card to share ... I started making it on Friday night and finished it off yesterday.
 
 


  When I started I had intended on making a card using a Sugar Nellie image so followed the great sketch over at The Sugar Bowl. However, in the end I didn't think the image I had coloured suited the card so grabbed a LOTV die cut because I really couldn't be bothered to colour another image. I have added some Stardust stickles to the image for a little bit of sparkle!

The papers, ribbon, button and twine are all from the Molly Blooms Christmas Carnival magazine/ kit which is where I got the idea for the twine threaded through the button. The sentiment is a Little Claire's stamp. Flowers, leaves and pearls from my stash.   
 
Challenges
 
Winter Wonderland ~ To The One I Love
CCAYR ~ Presents
Sparkles Christmas Challenge ~ Sparkle & Bling
Christmas Crafting ~ Traditional Colours
 
Yesterday we ordered a new carpet for the lounge/dining room so we are going to be busy the next couple of weeks getting things moved ready for it to be fitted.  It seemed like a good idea yesterday until we got home and looked at everything that has got to be moved ... oh well it will keep us out of mischief lol!
 
Enjoy what's left of the weekend :-)
