A spoon full of sugar

Hi everyone,

Hope you all had a fab weekend

I decided to make a card last night to try and take my mind off the excruciating pain from my toothache and went for the a spoonfull of sugar's challenge which this week was Christmas.

I love to enter 'a spoonfull' and try to make a card everyweek, so please excuse my artistic licence as making a Christmas card is especially difficult if you don't have any 'Christmas' things!!
Anyway I am pleased with the results even if it isn't very traditional.

Here are the details
  • Image: Honey from Sugar Nellie
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Paper: K&Co
  • All other embellies from stash

I see also that last night my counter went over 10,000 hits, huge thanks to all my visitors for popping by and leaving such lovely comments and making this whole blog thing worthwhile

As my birthday is fast approaching and I have tipped the 10K I am going to do some blog candy, hopefully in the next few days...just need to get it stay tuned

Have a super day, thanks for stopping by

I LOVE this Christmas card! Truly un-traditional...but that makes it so unique! I love the image of the little girl. I remember waking up and feeling how she looked every Christmas morning. Now I watch my daughter do it :O)

Congratulations on exceeding the 10K mark! I hope your toothache goes away soon (if it hasn't already).
