Bright Christmas Lights.......

Morning! Am feeling so much better knowing the 'puter's fixed and I've got the world of blogland at my feet again!! I'll be round to visit you all later on today - after I've been to pick my Aunt up to bring her over and I've been to see my Mum and Dad cos it's their Ruby Wedding Anniversary today - I can't believe they've been married for 40 years!! I can't imagine being married for that long, mind you the way I'm going, I'd be lucky going on a date for 40 minutes never mind being married for 40 years LOL!!!
Anyway, back to the main reason of my post!! There's a new challenge over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp today and this week, it's a fab sketch by our lovely leader, Maggie (and it incorporates bunting - sure to get some of you excited!!) Here's my card:

Image - Tiddly Inks coloured with spectrum noirs.
Papers and Stickers - Echo Park 'Holly Jolly'.
Card - Bazzill Basics.
Also used - Glossy Accents on her specs and Crafts Too embossing folder (and Cuttlebug!) to emboss the pink card.

I love this Tiddly Inks character, Minnie - she's just so much fun and Echo Park's new 'Holly Jolly' collection is just full of fab, bright colours - perfect if you don't want to go the traditional route on your chrimbo cards. I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
And that's about it for now, I think!?! I'll be along to see y'all later, till then....................mwah xx
