A skier and some exciting news

Another quick post from me tonight. I really haven't had much time for either crafting or blogging at the moment. Welcome to my new followers and apologies that I haven't been visiting as much as usual. Sometimes life just gets in the way. I really appreciate all your lovely comments so thank you. I've also had some awards from my lovely blogging friends which I just haven't got round to posting either but please don't think I don't appreciate them because I really do. Normal service will be resumed asap. Apologies for the quality of this photo too. It is dark and pouring with rain and I am still using my little netbook which doesn't have Photoshop installed.

This sweetie is another Pollycraft image. Papers are from the Daisy and Dandelion pack. The embossed poinsettia was made with a Marianne die. The sentiment is from Allisa's Town and I added some card candy and glitter flocking to all the fur on Cuthbert's outfit.

It is a fortnightly challenge for the florally obsessed and the current challenge is floral fantasy. Expect to see my first DT card for them next Monday.
