Happy Saturday

First I have the PTI ATC swap to share with you, the lovely Steph organized it and Steph being Steph she didn't only organize it brilliantly she also made these gorgeous boxes to send them in..this girl amazes me what she manages to achieve and two small children. Thanks Steph she also has some fabulous candy up for grabs pop over and have a look. Happy Anniversary Hun xx

Last night my favourite programme was back on the telly yes how could you fail to miss that "strictly come dancing" has started again... I think you either love or hate this programme and I am in the love love love group!!!!
I can't afford to sit down for one and a half hours two night on the trot and do nothing but watch telly so I decided to colour some Christmas images yes I know!!! but I have to start sometime.

Last year it cost me a fortune sending my handmade card so this year I am making a concerted effort to keep the postal ones flatter and smaller and hopefully I can get away with 2nd class small letter post.

Today hubby has gone off on an all day golfing bonding and drinking day!!!!! I will pick him up from the pub after strictly.

So I have a whole day to myself just me and honey..I haven't even showered yet but I have made a couple of simple cards with the images I coloured last night.
Two very different cards the first one is the new manga Christmas image from Sugar Nellie (I have the whole set except the fairy to play with) this is a very young image and I have used young funky colours.

The second one is far more traditional colours and a fab High Hopes stamp a bought last year and never used.

Sorry its such a long post and thanks for looking.
Sue :o)

2 great cards Sue and you have given me some ideas too! Do you want some images of the Manga fairy? (or any of my other new stamps) I will swap you for some of that HH Santa - I wanted him last year for my son's xmas card but never got around to buying the stamp.
hugs, annie x
