Christmas Already?


Well I have discovered where my Mojo has vanished off to - the little devil packed his Speedos, got a cheap flight and has left me to my own devices!  Looks like he is somewhere much warmer than the Arctic conditions we have here today.

But, the snowflakes that are wafting past the window have put me in the mood for Christmas so here is a simple card for you that surprisingly fits several challenges:



I bought this stamp in the recent LOTV sale - it is one I've hankered after for a while but now it's mine, all mine!  (mwa ha ha ha, evil laugh) Er-hmmm, anyway, it is called Sledging With Daddy.  

Have painted what little needed to be done with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Mowed Lawn, Iced Spruce, Festive Berries, Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire, Frayed Burlap,
Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain and Weathered Wood
Snowflake is from a set of Hero Arts sentiments and the Christmas sentiment is who-knows
as I've thrown the wrapper away!  
Paper is a piece of leftover NitWit from the Candles and Cake paper pad from LOTV.


Thanks for stopping by today, I know it isn't easy at weekends to squeeze everything in so I really do appreciate the time you take to visit me.  And a big hello to my new Followers!  Hope you like it here enough to stay with me for a while.

Hugs, Squirrel xx
