ABC Christmas D Challenge + Sketch Saturday

Well it makes a change from Valentine's this weekend!

Morning all, hope this Saturday morning finds you well and full of beans.  Only thing I'm full of today is Mr Toad's germs!  Pesky fella - I've told him, next time he brings home a cold he will be sleeping in the shed.  And I'm blaming the 453 germs causing sneezing, running nose and watery eyes on the fact that my offering today is a bit "not straight" LOL!!

But, before the card, I must say a very big and warm thank you to all you lovely bloggers who left such kind messages of support on my ABC DT message.  Bless your hearts, it really does mean so much to me.

OK, today's card - techinically I don't start the DT spot until the next challenge so that should, in theory, mean I can still enter the one for ABC Christmas Challenge D For Decorations !  And I chose to combine it with the super sketch over at this week's Sketch Saturday No 90
Love this one, and will be using again I'm sure.  And so onto the card (be sympathetic, I am blaming germ number 267 for not being able to see straight this morning)

I've used Magnolia Tilda with her Merry Christmas banner, coloured with Copics and ProMarkers, papers are Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey and an unidentified sheet from stash.  Snowflakes punched with Woodware and Martha Stewart.  And if the ribbon looks like an afterthought - it was!  I forgot all about the extra for the challenge of ribbon so it was a quick wrap and tie (ooops).

Is it my eyes, or is the red spotty paper really not straight?

Anyhoo, that's me for this morning.  Going to chill and have a cuppa now and then brace myself for getting off to the hairdresser this afternoon for a tail trim and colour.

Yes, I know it's February - but if you have a go at the ABC Christmas Challenge now, you won't be running around in a panic in November!  It's gotta make sense.  Hope to see you there.

Another lovely card Squirrel. Sorry to hear you aren't too well. Do squirrels get colds???!!!

Gorgeous card Squirrel!

Sorry to hear you're not feeling very well. I hope Mr Toad is feeling suitably guilty and will be making a big fuss of you tomorrow.

Cute card, and I don't think the paper is wonky - I often stare at mine for ages thinking the same thing though! Hope you're feeling better soon, I've still got my yukky cold too. Hugs x

Poor Squirrel, all those nasty germs running around your whiskers! Hope that Mr. Toad is feeling very very guilty over your sniffles. I think your card is lovely and not at all crooked. Hope that you are feeling much better.
