Sledding Fun,

Good morning peeps,
 how is everybody on this chilly but beautiful Monday morning, there is something very beautiful and magical about the morning sky in the winter months, the spectrum of colours is amazing, but
when I went to work at 5am the moon was still out and it was black as a crow and the temperature was at 3.5 I must be out of my tiny mind, pml.

This morning I felt like having a change from the norm in blog land, you see I like change and I tend to get bored with things if they have been that way for a while so thought I would use the central paragraph, big whoop I know, but they say a change is as good as a rest, lol, you see October is a difficult month for inspiration for me because, One it would have been my sisters birthday on the 28th if she were still with us she'd have been 51 years old, and next month is the anniversary of my dads passing so I feel a little sad and  find it harder to get in touch with the artistic side, you see on the whole I am very happy go lucky a little shy until I know folk, then there is no shutting me up.


On this fine morning I would like to share a Christmas card with you the Image is from the Secret Crafter it is one of our new and exclusive Digi's it is called Christmas Sledding and its a real bargin @ £2.99.





 I coloured the image with pro markers and did the shading with sansodor and a paper stump, I used Marianne creatables snowflake dies, and buttons from my stash, the Sentiment is a Penny Black stamp.


The background papers are from My Minds eye and its called Wonderful Winter, I bought it last year but I was very naughty and never made my cards I bought them,(smack my wrists) so I made a promise to myself that I would try really hard and make all of my christmas cards this year, and so far I have made about 50 so fingers crossed I may just get there.

I have entered this card in the following challenges.
