Blue, blue Christmas..

Hi guys... a short post ( to make up for my lack of output lately )
I wanted to show you this awesome free digi I got from the lovely Torico.... she is a designer for There She Goes rubber stamps..
I have been busy today creating Christmas cards for a dear friend ...She needs several Xmas cards for her Grandsons...

You may recognise the papers as Polkadoodles ..I love Nikky's papers. This one was from the creative Christmas CD .
The tickets were a freebie from GTC I think.. the font and brackets were from the Cindy Loo cartridge ..( eep I have a Cricut machine ..!!)
Our lovely mousey friend was coloured with Promarkers...
I would like to enter him into a couple of challenges ...
The first is Digital Tuesday challenge , the theme there is " Let it snow " , where the prize is from My Grafico .
The second is Bah!humbug and the theme there is "feeling the blues", here you have to use shades of blue on your card . Hope you like todays creations , thanks for looking xx 

Hello all!

Hi guys ..apologies for being MIA  Its been a hectic week and i have struggled a little with my eyes . When I am a little headachy  they tend to complain a little , but I am thankful I am not really a migraine sufferer! Bless all those that are  x
 Anyway , so i missed the last Polkadoodle s challenge , but today i wouldlike to show you a coulple of samples made with Nikky's new stamps...Did you see the show on Create and Craft ..wowzers !! Those little houses and accessories are so cute ! The demo Nikky did blew me away ... and since its not fit to be outside today ( unless you are a polar bear !) I might get a little crafting in...:-)

The houses and sentiments are fabby !! you can get loads of little accessory stamps to create a scene...
They sold out on the show , and I think there is a waitlist over at Polkadoodles . Get your name down .. you will love playing with these...
 I will be back soon with the winner of my candy from the Polkadoodles blog hop !!
