I've received this lovely award from Michele - thanks so much!! The rules are to give it to five others, who shall give it to five others.. You shall link the one you got it from, and also the ones you give it to:) And let them know. You also have to write down five things you are addicted to so here are my 5:
Chocolate (almost every kind except orange for coffee)
Good American TV dramas (Prison Break, Lost, Heros)
Shopping (for anything, I even enjoy the weekly food shop!)
And here are the lovely ladies I am passing this award on to: Tara, Jacqui, Caro, Dawn and Debby. Some of these ladies might have already received it but I really enjoy their blogs and visit regularly.
Today I started and finished my Christmas shopping! I also managed to buy myself some lovely smooth watercolour paper and some Bo Bunny papers jumped into my basket too!
I'd like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year.

I really wanted to make a non-Christmas card today so I've used this weeks card sketch from Split Coast Stampers. The strawberry stamp was a freebie with Craft Stamper magazine some months ago. I coloured the image with water colour pencils and then embossed them to give them some shine and sprinkled on a bit of glitter. The embossing curled the strawberries slightly but I think it gives them a nice 3D quality. I've used my new Basic Grey papers which are Urban Prairie and added the little charm so it qualifies for this weeks BG challenge too! All the paper edges have been inked with worn lipstick distress ink.

I'm starting to get a bit bored of Christmas cards!! I've cut and stuck enough snowflakes to last me at least another 12 months so I'll make just one more for my in-laws and then that's it!! This card has been made following a fab sketch at Our Creative Corner. I coloured Mimi with Prisma pencils and used my favourite Angel Dust glitter for the fur trim on her jacket. I embossed the pink square behind Mimi with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder and also added a Cuttlebug fancy corner diecut which is my favourite thing at the moment. The other 'ingredients are: Paper - DCWV, snowflakes - sissix and X-cut, Papermania ribbon.
And I thought I would add a picture of Thomas. He was reaching into his toy box for his drumstick just before bedtime yesterday when he fell in. I happened to have my camera handy so took a quick snap. Once he got over the surprise he was quite pleased with himself!
