Christmas is coming ....

Morning Folks!

Long time no see I know, but I'm just popping on to let you know that the new challenge is just starting over at Sparkles Monthly:


Now, don't panic anyone, we still have a few weeks to go yet, remember we haven't started the advent calendar choccys! However, if you are as disorganized as me this might be the perfect inspiration needed to get another card ticked off the list!! This one has doubled the number in my box !!

It's funny, despite having lots of Christmas stamps, there are always a few favourites that I seem to reach for - in my world, Christmas means James the Bear from LOTV!! Here he is in one of my fav crimbo colour combos, love lilac and silver together:

Sorry about the pants photo, think it's time to drag out the daylight bulbs for piccy taking!

Who could resist that face?? Perhaps he could do my Christmas shopping for me??

Thanks for visiting and for any comments you leave. Don't forget to head over to the Sparkles blog to see what the rest of the design team have made and to get all the challenge details.

I was inspired by this sketch at Sketch Saturday:
