Christmas Post!

Hi everyone hope you've had a great start to the week. My week is going to be a little hectic as its our son's 9th birthday on Friday and a few things left to sort like GET THE PRESENT yikes nothing like leaving it to the last minute is there!!! Should be okay though as we've decided to let him have a pet so we're going to get him a little hamster (or those creepy things that scurry about as my hubby said). Anyway, I'll keep it brief as I'm not feeling on top of the world tonight as I have a cold and feel like plop.
So here's a crimbly card made with a gorgeous little Sarah Kay image all in traditional reds and greens today and I used the yummy sketch from over at Bunny Zoe's monthly challenge.

Papers are the fab Memory Box just luurrve these which I got from Tracy at Dies to Die for. The poinsettias are die cuts made using the Marianne Creatables dies which I think are great. The greeting on the card is a die cut which I've had for like forever and the sentiment on the base is by Inkadinkado and not forgetting the roses which are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I would like to enter my card into a few challenges:-
I think thats about it folks I'm going off now to make myself a yummy hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows - it always cheers me up.
Take care wherever you are and happy crafting.
