Too Much Brandy In the Mince Pies?

Hello all!  At last, a day that feels like the day it should be - you know where you are with a Saturday!  Here at Squirrel Towers it has been confusion all week so it was nice this morning to get up, go for a tail trim and come back to a normal weekend day.

Now, when I'd made this card, Toad reckons I had eaten a mince pie with too much brandy in it - I kinda see what he means but what the heck, it was very tasty!

Allsorts Challenge - New Beginnings
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - New Beginnings

So here it is then, brace yourselves

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image  High Hopes First Ride
Sentiment  LOTV Grunge Postmarks
Papers  All Basic Grey - variety of pads
Medium  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Dies Memory Box Puffy Clouds and Snowflake Corner (that I turned into flowers)
Extras  A few gems and a punched flower

Not the most traditional of baby cards but, hey, it's nice to be different sometimes (my excuse and I'm sticking to it).

Now then, remember at the end of November that I was positively bursting to tell you some news?  Well, it didn't happen and I was totally flat about it.  After the email from Lord Tim saying that he liked my colouring, I had another one from him saying that he would link my blog to his during the 12 Tags Of Christmas.  I appreciate that it must be an incredibly frantic time for him to produce all that work and get it posted so I'm not going to be too hard on him, especially as he is so darned talented, but I guess that was my fall after the pride, and oh boy, was it a long fall.  Never mind, pick myself up, dust myself off, and away we go again.

Whatever you are doing tonight to see in the New Year (we'll probably be in bed by about 10.30) I hope it is a happy and safe one for you.

Hugs Sxx

I LOVE this and yes it is different, but who says we can't be ay?

Sorry about your no news, I had something similar happen to me and my confidence went through the roof, and then into the depths so I understand how you feel, it WILL get better, onwards and upwards.
