Oh so cosy together

Phew, here I am at last with my DT card. I spent the day at a craft fair, which was busy and I sold several cards so well worth going. Did some great networking too. Got home, put stuff away, sat down for half an hour then off to the nurse for a check up on cholesterol, blood pressure etc. Hubby thought it would be good if we both had them checked. All fine, my cholesterol was very good, only 3.7. His is a little high at 6.4 so has to try to lower that. The off to Sainsburys for the food shopping so finally a chance to post my card.

Over at Winter Wonderland this week we are now beginning Christmas only challenges and we are easing you in by asking you to make a Christmas card. Easy, peasy. We are pleased to be sponsored by Crafty Emma who is giving away a gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamp.

I bought this cute digi along with some rubber stamps from Sugar Nellie just after Christmas. I think is such an adorable image which I have coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I've used Papermania Percy and Penelope papers and tag, Marianne die cut snowflakes and icicle border and added a silver snowflake charm from Hooked on Krafts.
