IT'S ALL ABOUT ART!......................

Evening all!

Hope you are all well on this Saturday night, and soon be time for Strictly and X-Factor woohoooo!
Hope Wagner goes tonight, he is sooooo scary and I cannot understand a word he sings  (I say that loosely lol!) and I hope Aidan sings a more up beat song.
Well its official, Christmas is coming and I have finally started my Xmas shopping :o(. Not a lover of Christmas, you end up buying loads of crap, eating far to much and repeats on T.V. Well that means one thing to me, more time for crafting over Christmas woohoo!
Right onto to tonight's card, and stop being a bah humbug!. This sweetie is again a Sugar Nellie image (hehehe) and its from the new Country Cousin range. I actually like this card and I have used some gorgeous papers from MemoryBox "Rhubarb tart" and a couple of paperclips, simple but effective :o)

This cutie is going into the following Challenges :-
The Sugar Bowl # 47 ~ Maria Theresa's Sketch with the theme "Ribbon and Bows"

Art from the Heart ~ Sugar Nellie

Hiya Vixx,
I have watched Strickly (great tonight) and am getting ready for X...I start to record X then play catch up (on adverts then!)
Your card is simply lovely. The image is fab, love love girly stamps.
I have been selling at a local craft fair and made quite a bit of dosh (going to Glasgow shopping next Thursday for two days, Xmas Shopping) so it will come in handy.
I think the papers you have used, and the colours and sketch are gorgeous, keep up the lovely work, have a fab Saturday. Debbiexx

Hi Vicky

I really love this.

Great image .. so well coloured and a great layout.

Love the paper clips and your colour choices.

X-Factor has been amazing .. .. nearly finished my late viewing of it - some amazing performances. Quite a few gave me goose bumps which is always a good sign.

Wagner really does need to go though and Mary didn't look happy at all.

But the most worrying part of tonight is learning that you are a Bah Humbug .. .. that's not allowed!! LOL!!

Thanks very much for my award by the way - very kind of you. I have to warn you that I never pass them on though so if you want to revoke your donation I understand.

I will show it on my blog once I know you are happy for me to accept it knowing I won't pass it on other than in a general manner to everyone who visits my blog.

Love Jules xx
