Bootiful Christmas

Good morning

Brrrr winter has definitely arrived here in Norfolk this weekend!  Yesterday was a mixture of wind, rain, hail and sunshine but apart from the weather I had a lovely day meeting up with my friends Marianne and Lynsey ... we had a yummy pub lunch and as always lots of chatting took place :-)
I haven't had any time for crafting the last couple of weeks because we've been busy getting ready for a new carpet to be fitted in our lounge/diner.  It was a lot of hard work moving all the furniture but it's all done now and it looks lovely ... it's surprising what a difference a new carpet makes to a room.

On Friday night I was looking through my box of coloured images and came across this 'Bootiful' image so decided to make it into a card.  I teamed it up with some old Papermania papers which have been in my stash for a few years.

* Card Recipe *
Image ~ A-May-Zing 'Bootiful Christmas' 
Papers ~ Papermania 'A Silent Night'
Sentiment ~ Little Claire's 'Christmas Sentiments'
Poinsettia ~ Prima
Pearls/Ribbon ~ Stash
Medium Pearl Brad ~ Wild Orchid Crafts
Cheery Lynn 'Holly Corner' die ~ Natalie and Amy's

* Challenges *
 Sparkles Christmas ~ Traditional
52 Christmas Throwdown ~ Die cuts & Punches
SFTW ~ Anything Goes
Sketch N Stash ~ Sketch

That's all from me ... hope you have a lovely relaxing Sunday :-)  Other than popping out to Tescos to get Jamie a Halloween costume I am going to stay warm and cosy indoors today.

Don't forget to enter my birthday blog candy for the chance to win a £10 gift voucher to spend at Wild Orchid Crafts.
