Baby it's cold outside

well the predicted snow hasn't arrived here yet much to the disgust of the local school kids who were hoping for a snow day lol.

i had some lovely news this morning that i had won some candy from the lovely Brenda. the prize was a voucher to spend at Sir Stampalot, wow what a lot to choose from, i eventually decided on some of the new christmas Tilda's, cant wait to have a play with them..

so with Tilda in mind and the colour scheme of blue and silver and a sketch from C4E here is my entry for this weeks challenge

well the image is a favourite of mine it takes me back to my childhood lol.
She has been coloured with inkadinks

Christmas is on it's way...

well that's Halloween and Bonfire night over and done with for another year, and we had so much fun with both, the kids all looked so cute dressed up in their spooky finery and the bonfire party my friend threw was a great success again.
The weather has really turned horrible, here we've got heavy rain and wind yuck, will be amazed if the fence stays up lol, but it's a sign that my favourite time of the year is nearly here, sorry for you that dont want to here it yet but i am talking about Christmas, i cant wait to get the decs up and start wrapping pressies that i've bought and listening to all my fave christmas songs and getting watching all the christmas movies, although must admit me and DD have already watched a couple of our favourites - National Lampoons christmas vacation and Christmas with the Kranks.

There seem to be a few challenges around now with a lovely christmas theme so todays card is joining in with some of those.

The image is of course Tilda pulling her cute sledge
coloured with my faithful inkadinks
title is cut from a sizzlit die covered with baby blue stickles
the mirrored snowflakes are from Papermania which i think are quite cute.
ribbon, glittered card stock and gems on punched snowflakes are from stash.

I am entering this card at Totally Tilda - blue and silver.
Paper Sundaes - let it snow

have a great day everyone
