Christmas Ted!

Hello all and I hope that your week has started well?  And I hope that you managed to avoid the worst of the wind and rain we had in the UK today? Grumpy Poppy the cat was SO not impressed - and growled when she heard thunder this morning. It would really have been an ideal day to lock myself in with crafty goodies and a hot drink - but had to head off to work instead! But I can't complain as I'm now off for 2 days - and it's like playing truant from school lol. For my 'big' birthday last New Year's Eve, my dear friend booked us tickets to go and see Il Divo in concert in Glasgow tomorrow night. So we're heading away on the train tomorrow for a girlie break, a bit of shopping, meal out, nice hotel for a night and a lovely concert to look forward to (not to mention plenty of time to catch up on chat!). I'm sure hubby and son will manage perfectly well without me as well. So I'll let you know how it goes!

Anyway, I've just got another Christmas card to share with you

I've used a James the Bear rubber stamp from LOTV that I think has now been retired (although I could be wrong!). I've coloured James with copics and pencils, with some added glamour dust
The backing papers and sentiment tag are also from LOTV. I've added some snowflakes using a Tonic punch.

and a seam binding ribbon bow, with a pearl centre from WOC, and a cute little charm from stash

Hope you like it. 
I'll try and get round everyone's blogs over the next few days - I don't know where time goes sometimes! 
Back soon,
