Hello, sorry I'm late
oh my goodness it's been the busiest day ever!
I have so much on the go at the moment I'm finding it hard to juggle everything, oh well I mustn't grumble.
Late last night our new challenge started at Here come the boys, I thought it was going to be today but my dear friend Woo has caught me out, lol, she has just returned from her wonderful holiday, hope you had a fab time Woo  :o)
...anyway the theme this week is Birthdays but please remember it's Boys/Men Birthday cards we want to see.
I made this card using this super cute Edwin with his aeroplane and coloured him with Distress inks.
(By the way my card says Happy Birthday in French as this was specially made for a French lady for her Son)
I hope you can join us in this nice easy challenge over at Here Come The Boys, the girls have made some superb cards for your inspiration. 
Can I just say I am so sorry if I haven't commented on your blog for a while, things are a bit manic here and I'm trying to get through a some commenting each night as well as my DT commenting, I think we are all in the same boat!
Hopefully things will quieten down soon and I'll have more time. 
Take care of yourselves and keep warm

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas ~ Midweek Magnolias

Good morning to you from a wet and windy part of UK today, 
Ooh it's horrible out there!
Oh well a good day for crafting, after all my chores are done of course. 
Today is the start of a new challenge over at Midweek Magnolias and we have a lovely Christmas theme for you it's...
'I'M DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS' (are you singing it yet? it's hard not to when you're saying it)

just lots of white on there.

Take care
