Oooh l do love my sleigh!

Hello everone and welcome to my post today
Hope all is well and sending lots of love to those who need it
Here is a card l made last year it's one of many that l had to make in a rush
And the beauty of using the image is that it's pre-coloured and comes from
Lotv packs which they don't do now 
White Scalloped card, Snippet of cards, Snippet of Ribbon
3D Pads, Gems, Holy, Rudolph and Lotv image
Woodware corner punch
Challenges l'd like to enter into
I cannot believe how this year is going so fast
At the end of the month the hour goes back
Making the day's shorter and the nights darker
And then it's Christmas .....What a thought!!
I made a start on my Christmas shopping yesterday
How about yourselves?
Thank you for your time
Hope you have a lovely day

l'm a nice boy at heart!!

Good Evening 
Well what a day it's been 
The weather has been awful!
Not fit to go out so l didn't
l trawled through my unblogged cards
And found this one which will be suitable for
Di's Snippets
Craftysentiments Anything-goes
l made this card for a friend who is a butcher
The image suited him down to a tee!
The designer papers are snippets 
Sentiment came from a box that l have 
Just waiting to be used

Tomorrow is supposed to be a better day
They say there's a high coming in 
Which means we could be in for some dry
And warm weather which beats the rain
Take care whatever your plans
And thank you for your visit

On a sad note
This is Fluffi 
She was a stray l tried every avenue to find her owner
To no avail they didn't come forward
Fluffi was very hungry and ferrel l already had and stil have 2 other cats
Needless to say they didn't appreciate another mouth to feed
But eventually they did get on 
Fluffi was about 14yrs old l had her for about 10 yrs
Sadly Fluffi fell asleep Saturday after learning she had Liver Cancer
