Hurrah hurrah hurrah!



WOOHOO, Dylan is back from the vets and he's ok! :D I didn't mention this earlier, but Dylan (the kitty in my avatar) has been at the vet today having some teeth taken out. Relatively low-risk operation, but Dylan's about 15/16 and I was panicking a little that he wouldn't come out of the anaesthetic, but he's home now and fine, although disgusted at me for taking him there in the first place :D :D :D
So I'm feeling all relieved and happy now, so on with the craft stuff. It's time for a new sketch over at Fairymoon Crafts, and I'm sponsoring this week, so if you join in you have the chance of winning some goodies from my shop. Any three items of your own choice, I'd love to see your entries.



The image I used for my card is one of the cuties from Some Odd Girl, and the papers are from the Berry Snow set at Crafty Chaos Designs.
These are the other challenges I'm entering:
Whoopsi Daisy - Holiday
Lollipop Crafts Challenges - Christmas
Pear Tree Designs - colourful
Anything Goes - let it snow (all the patterned paper is snowflaked)
Riley and Co - outdoors. I'm hoping that her warm outdoor clothing and the chilly look on her face will count ;)
Timeless Flourishes - Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday - buttons. And my tip for this one is to remember that you can recolour your embellishments. The star buttons and the ribbon on this one have both been recoloured by me to match the pink tones of the rest of the card.
Tuesday Throwdown - buttons and bows
City Crafter - feature children
Pixie Cottage - ribbons and bows
Stampavie and more - monochrome
ABC Christmas - X for Xmas + optional flowers
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Christmas
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Christmas
Fairy Fun Fridays - buttons and bows
Fussy and Fancy - Christmas without red or green (just entering for fun, I'm on the StampInsanity DT)
