Evening all!

Brrrrrr hasn't it been cold today! At least the sun was shining after having a couple of days of nasty wind and rain :o(
I have had a lovely day hiding in my little craftroom away from everyone except C&C and the lovely Steph on t.v lol! I was quiet pleased with my little creations today, feeling so much better after an awful week last week :o)
So onto tonight's card, this cutie is from the fab Lili of the Valley and it's the urber sweet James with all his glittery tinsel. I have used some lovely papers from Wild Rose Studio, some embellies and lots of yummy stickles  :o)

Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 75 ~ Fab Sketch
Simon Says ~ Prince Charming :-)
I love Promarkers # 40 ~ Icy Colours

Oh what a gorgeous card Vicky, I love it all! Fab image, love the papers, cute little star... I could go on but basically all of it lol :o)

Good to know we're not the only ones with a fussy child - I know he'll be fine, it's just soooo frustrating sometimes, I'd just love to be able to give him a sandwich or a crumpet or something, but it's such a silly thing to worry about really! Lisa x

Hi Vicky,
Your blue colour scheme is perfect for the cold weather today. I did yard duty today and I was freezing all day after it - just couldn't get warm until I got home and, like you, had a bath and put my PJ's on - heaven eh?! Gorgeous card as usual xxxxxxxxxx
