A Winter Birthday

Happy Monday all!

Did you have a nice weekend? Last Friday night, hubs and me went for a great meal; 7 magnificent courses and some great wine. Well, you have to treat yourself once in a while, right? ;) Thankfully we did have a voucher, so we didn't break the bank!

As it's Monday again, it's time for another Ooh La La Challenge and this time the theme is a fairly easy one: "Birthday". I made a birthday card for my FIL; he loves golf and has his birthday in December, so what better image than a snowy golf course? Let's see your birthday cards, come and link up with us :)

Butterfly Beliefs

Happy Monday all!

Time is truly flying by now; so much to do but so little time in which to do it before the big C ;) We had a lovely Halloween, thankfully the movie wasn't too scary (Jaws) although I did jump up once or twice!

This fortnight's challenge at Ooh La La is "Stitching, Real or Faux". I opted for real stitching, using some lovely twine I won in a challenge recently. A little different from what I have been working on recently (i.e. Christmas cards), a welcome relief really. I'm curious to see what you will be making of this theme, as usual you have two weeks to link up!

Traditional Santa

Hi all!

Is the flu roaming around where you are too? Here it is creating havoc, hubs just having recovered and now I'm getting it! At work it's also a complete disaster, with me having to cover for colleagues who can't come in. All in all a pretty busy week!

However, there's also good news, as a new Fab 'n Funky challenge is staring today! This week, Judith is challenging you to use "Traditional Christmas Colours". You don't need to make a Christmas themed project, just as long as you use colours that are traditionally associated with Christmas. We are sponsored this week by DigiDarla, which also provided the jolly fella below.

I did make a Christmas card, as I need to do several more. I'm really pretty pleased with this card; even though it isn't very high on embellishments I spent the entire night playing with ideas and adding finishing touches, taking them off and putting them back on again. I ended up with a pretty striking card, I think. Love it :)

Hope you can join the fun this week!
