Hasn't it gone cold?  We went to a fireworks display tonight and it was a bit nippy.  I'm drinking some nice hot chocolate now to warm myself up.

I'm feeling pretty cheerful this week as I won a £15 voucher over at Natalie and Amy's (monthly) Challenge blog here.  I've ordered lots of lovely things and the package is on it's way!!  Yipee!

Here's my latest card share, another Christmas card.  I really do need to get a move on and make some more.  (Although this week I shall mainly be getting ready to do a "demonstration" at my WI.  I am attempting to show people how to make shaker cards - I'm beginning to think I should have chosen something easier as the potential for disaster is huge.)

I love this snowman image as it takes no time to colour!  My rubbish photography means you can't see the sparkle on the big pin snowflake or the image.  Nor can you see the glossy accents on his nose, baubles and holly berries. It is there though - honest!!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Card Crafters Circle - Patterned Paper
Fab n Funky - Die Cuts/Punches
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Willow Sketchie - Festive Sparkle and Shine
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar - Wrap up Warm for Winter

That's all for tonight - thanks for looking!
