Hi, it's been a while since I put fingers to keys! Haven't done any cards for myself lately except for the ones I do with Shirley on Tuesdays. I did get a box card started for my Wednesday class, but we didn't finish because someone asked halfway through the lesson if they could make it too and I had to start from scratch for her with the instructions.
Anyway, today starts challenge # 6 at Completely Christmas Challenge Blog and as usual it is an Anything Goes Challenge, so anything Christmas is accepted.
Our sponsor this week is the ever wonderful Bugaboo and the prize is 7 free digis, so let's see your entries!!!
I chose this cute Christmas turtle to play with and enjoyed colouring him up.

Challenge # 5 Completely Christmas Challenge Blog

Finally we have a new little granddaughter after a very dramatic home birth. I think we are extremely lucky that she is here at all. I got to see her today. My SIL asked me to come over to help out with some of the housework and also just to be there while Katie was doing other things. She is on medication for pain and also antibiotics. Bubs is very small - 2.6 kg (about 6 lb) I feel less stressed but still a bit uptight re the whole situation.
Anyway, now I'm a bit late doing my post, so I had better hurry up as I have to go out tonight as well.
Here is the card using an image from My Heart's Pieces

  
Recipe:
SU Real Red cardstock for the basecard
