Maggie's Christmas Dinner

Hello folks hope this finds you well. I thought I would strike while the iron's hot and share a card fresh from the work room as I am doing holiday cover at work next week so time will be short.
Several challenges tickled my fancy so I made this little card to join in.


I used the current layout from here.


The die cut snowflakes are Marianne Designs, the papers were from Wilko the Christmas before last and the sentiment was from a CC designs set called Snarky Christmas (which I cannot find to add a link) that I bought this time last year and inked for the first time today...oops!! I thought it was about time Maggie had another inking and she was then coloured with Promarkers and given a splattering of stickles snow. 

These are the challenges that inspired me, together with a couple more that "fit"

Allsorts challenge #357 - April Fool/Humorous
Cut it up #93 - April Fools (include a joke or riddle)
 Hope the sentiment counts!!
The Sugar Bowl #135 - Anything Goes

I'll "see" you later in the week with a couple of scheduled posts. 

Until then have a good week xx
