Brrrrrrr, it is chillsome here in the east of England - the wind is coming straight across the North Sea from Scandinavia with nothing to get in its way until it reaches us. And it is bringing snow with it! We haven't had much more than a shower but I know some parts of the country are getting it in big, fat flakes so I hope that wherever you are, you are keeping snug and warm.
Despite the cold, it is still Saturday and Saturday means that it is TOTALLY GORJUSS day! Thanks to everyone who took part in our non-traditional Christmas colours challenge last week. We had some really super entries and every one was a joy to look at. Don't forget to check the blog to see who was chosen as the lucky winner.
This week we would like to see a Christmas Tree somewhere on your card - I love Christmas Trees, they remind me so much of my childhood when we always had a real tree. The smell of the pine was just amazing. It also reminds me of the day my mum called up the stairs to me that the cat had just pooed under the tree (we always had ours in a bucket full of damp sand). As it was my cat, you can guess who had to scoop the poop!
Anyway, I'm rambling so let me tell you who our lovely sponsor is and show you my DT card. Cupid Clear Stamps have very kindly put up a prize for you, and there is the bonus Magnolia stamp to go with that.
And here is my card:
How adorable is this little Penny Black hedgie? Coloured with ProMarkers, matting with Nestabilities dies, papers are from an old pad of Anita's Christmas papers and that yummy sentiment is from the new range by Lili of The Valley. The gems that decorate the tree are from stash.
Thanks for popping over and wading through my whitterings, I do hope you still have the energy left to join us for the challenge! See you there.
Hugs, Squirrel xx
