My Fab Followers

Monday, Monday!

Morning everyone - I'm a mad woman at the minute - had a melt down on Saturday putting up the Xmas decs!!!  And back to work today, leaving my dining room a mess of baubles and tinsel as still not quite finished and there's the tree to buy next weekend and put up!! 
Still, I've taken a deep breath and given myself a few minutes to show you my card for the new challenge at Sketch N Stash, following this wonderful sketch from our clever Chrissie - it's a gorgeous sketch too!!
I've gone with a fab Mo Elf (North Pole Employee set) that I bought last Christmas and still love this Christmas!! 
That's the old item in my card with the ribbon (from M&S), the Echo park Happy Days paper and MS snowflake punch being rather newer! 
Actually the sentiment punch is old too, from Stampin Up and so are the bells which have been in my stash since goodness knows when.

Our sponsor for this fortnight's challenge is Simon Says Stamp and they are offering a  $15 voucher to spend in their on-line store. 



Hope that will encourage you to play along with us but if you want some inspiration you can see all the gorgeous cards by the SNS DT here.
Off to finish getting ready for work now - have a good week!

Well at least I've made it into the December makes now. I might have to have a nap though before continuing. It's very dull here at the moment and I haven't been able to get warm all day - a snooze is just what is needed methinks! Love this Christmas elf. Love the papers and design of your card! Hugs, Lesley
