Fa La La La La

Evening all! Where are the days going?! Am sorry for not being about since Wednesday but tis crazy here, not only with the general seasonal stuff but with the moving house stuff. The moving house will hopefully be on the 21st, week today even! The only thing holding stuff up is getting the electric and water on and all that as its a new house. So is everyone all carded out yet?! I think I have enough, but still haven't counted (shall have to write them this week though!). I kinda daren't look, so I'm just keeping it going just incase! Anyways....

A bit over a week ago I won some stuff over at the Cosmo Cricket blog, $100 worth of stuff to be exact! It came Saturday and I was just so excited when I saw it all! I got so much! I got jolly by golly 12 x 12 paper kit, 12 x 12 earth love kit, 12 x 12 nutmeg kit, 12 x 12 early bird kit, 2 packs of ribbon, 6 x 6 nutmeg paper pad, 5 sheets of 12 x 12 chipboard shapes, 2 packs of ribbon and some stickers. How cool is that!!!

So I had to use more jolly by golly paper (my little 6 x 6 pad had almost run out!), and I used this adorable Sugar Nellie stamp by Leanne Ellis called 'Skating Annie' which you can buy here. I do love my Annie stamps! The cool thing about the majority of the Sugar Nellie Christmas stamps are that there are very few that are specific to Christmas, most you can use all year round!

Stuff: Sugar Nellie 'skating Annie' available to buy here, copics to colour, cosmo cricket jolly by golly paper available here (10% off!), flowersoft in polar white, crackle accents for ice (bottom of image), bling, twine, snowflake punch, text from paper kit, sewing machine, paperartsy stamp (holly swirls around image), distress inks in frayed burlap and antique linen.

Here's a close up of Annie:~

I'm going to enter this at Everybody Art whose theme is red and green, and Sophisticats who have an open Christmas theme. Well that's it from me tonight! I will be back though much more this week as I have stuff I've made that I haven't posted yet! Thanks for popping by and for any comments you might leave, they mean a lot:) xxx
