Father Christmas

This week I selected Father Christmas as the theme at CD Sunday There are loads of Father Christmas stamps and digis to choose from ( so this should be an easy challenge) and this stamp is from Stampendous. My Cd element is the green backing paper from Crafter's Companion Nordic Christmas.

As long as your card has an element from a Cd you can join in with us. Pop over to the blog to see the other DT member's cards, I'm sure you will love them.

This image was on a free CD which came with an issue of Making Cards earlier this year, it contains all of 2015's papers and images from 2015 and was a great buy, I've found loads of images and papers I will use.

I love the colours and  design of this image of a fawn and as the weather is still autumnal chose papers to match the season. Papers from Crafter's Companion Inspiration CD No. 11 the Autumn Edition.

My lovely boys have organised a surprise holiday in Florida for us all and gave me 1 weeks notice to get organised, we leave midweek and have a night in London ( going to see Aladdin the musical) then off to warmer weather, the temperature forecast is for the low 20's it will be lovely to leave the colder days and enjoy the warmth. Apologies in advance I will be unable to visit and leave comments (any form of blogging is forbidden) but will enjoy catching up when I get home. I do hope they let me sneak away to have time for some craft shopping

 lovely to get new stash especially if you can team it with existing stuff hope this counts as it is a young deer

Get Well Soon

It's  always handy to have a get well card  ready to post and this image is from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Triple CD, the mouse with the leg injury doesn't seem at all upset at having a bandage applied. I've kept my card really simple for posting and because the image is quite large.The sentiment is from the desert diva who generously offers free sentiments on her blog at least a couple of times a month.

A dull day here so I'm off to do some grocery shopping and have a coffee in Huntly.

I used 2 of the backing papers with a tonic die, my dog has a "made with love"charm but I'm afraid it doesn't show up against his body.

Pop over and see the teams cards for inspiration.

It was a beautiful day yesterday, we spent most of it in the garden tidying up before the weather changes, it's totally satisfying to see the effects of your hard work, I've still to pick the apples and pears from the trees, this has been a great year for them, but will leave that as long as possible, then some will be cooked and frozen and some made into chutneys. My diary is also pretty full for the next 2 weeks, meeting with friends and relatives I haven't seen for a while.
Thank you for your much appreciated comments on my last few cards, I do enjoy reading them.

Today's card is another for the Christmas box which is filling up quite nicely.

Challenges anything goes 2 bitds 2 tags die cut for greatest versatility
