It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Well, good morning!  Are you in the Festive Spirit yet?  Over at Stampin For The Weekend we're definately getting that way with this fortnights Challenge being Feeling Festive.  It's sponsored by Live and Love Crafts so why not come and join us and win some lovely goodies.

My card today is the first I've done of my Christmas Cards (only about another dozen to do!).  I used a new Lili of the Valley Image that I bought when they last had a sale and I really enjoyed colouring it up.  They switched the Christmas Lights on here in Hull last Thursday so with that and starting my cards I'm really starting to look forward to Christmas.  I've been doing a bit of Christmas Shopping throughout the year too so not so much running about nearer the time.

It's also the last day to enter my candy draw (you'll find the link in the sidebar - I'm not techie enough to have it as a stickie lol).  Good luck to all that have already entered.  I won't be at home tonight but will do the draw and announce the winner tomorrow xx
