Christmas Cuddle

Hope you have had a good week. I have had a busy one, work wise, staff holiday and the last Flu Clinic have taken up a fair chunk of my time and it has been outside weather too!! I am on annual leave next week , so I can live with it!! Before that though I have a sweet card to share with you in support of a new Colour Crazy Craft Challenge where it is always anything goes as long as you share a hand coloured image.

 The lovely image is Christmas Cuddle although I think she would make an equally lovely Winter Birthday card.

I used another of those pesky paper pads that invaded my basket in The Works and coloured her, with Promarkers, to match. 

You can see a little better on this one that I stickled her and the cat and even gave my very old liquid pearls an airing!! 

I am well and truly getting into the Christmas spirit, my gift shopping is almost finished, I made my Christmas cake last weekend and have even watched Miracle on 34th Street!! I haven't made a final decision on gifts for my colleagues just yet but am leaning towards sock snowmen so might just make a start this weekend and see how that goes. If it works I will let you have a look!!

I will leave you with the colours of Dorset.

Have a good weekend and keep well xx

Very pretty Sarah. Well done with the Christmas shopping, I haven't even started! Still not sure how we will do it this year either. Enjoy your week off. :)

An adorable image and card Sarah, I have the same trouble with those pesky paper pads, they can't resist jumping in to my basket also - I like to think it's because they know I'll give them a good home :)
Autumn has definitely claimed the landscape but doesn't it look beautiful.
Take care and enjoy your break.

It's a lovely image Sarah and the touches of glitter really bring her to life.

Great photos too, we've had a few hazy ones which make super photos. It's not Christmas here until we've watched Christmas Vacation, years old but still a good laugh.

Hi Sarah,
Gosh you are organised with your Christmas shopping I wish I was not at all sure what to get everybody this year.

Your card is so lovely and those papers used are gorgeous.
I love that wonderful image and your colouring of it is brilliant.

Your photos of Dorset are wonderful and the atmosphere on the firt rays of dawn look fab.
My Son and DIL live on a non working farm in the country side and last week her photo of the sunrise was so stunning not seen one like that beafore just one of the many pleasures of living in the rural areas I suppose.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
