Someone told Ella black is slimming


At A Gem of a Challenge his week we want to see your Christmas cards. The Dt have all used one of Janet's new images and I chose Winter Ella as I really wanted to try colouring an image using just grey Copics. It didn't photograph that well and I have to say the shading looks better in real life. I used the Authentique Wintery papers again with some ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and a Memory Box snowflake diecut from white glitter card. I hope you will join in the fun and get cracking with those Christmas cards.

I said yesterday that my 70's girl was an appropriate image. The reason was that we went to Potter's at Hopton yesterday, with a couple of friends, for a one night break. It was our first time of staying there and the reason we went was to see Bjorn Again, the Abba tribute band. We had a 5 course meal with wine, show, overnight stay, lots of activities and breakfast this morning. You can stay as long as you like for the 2 days. It is less than an hour from us and they have some great shows on there so I am sure we will be going again.

Sounds like a great overnight stay and the previous days card was a perfect tribute to an Abba concert. I love your card today the design and stamp are perfect and i loved the title. Its strange how some colours just don't like the camera mine always struggles with greens Enjoy the weekend love and hugs Carole x

I sat and watched Mama Mia all the way through at the weekend (first time I have seen the whole film) and really found it to be fun. Hope you had a great time seeing the tribute band.
