Thanks Christine & A Card for 5 challenges

Afternoon ladies I have 2 reasons to thank Christine, 1st off all I have an award that she left for me on her blog earlier this week, which I have to pass onto 5 people and give 5 things that I love........and if that was not enough the Postman brought me a fantastic gift yesterday from Christine, a beautiful Wallet Card with a cat on the front, my goodness do you know me well Christine, and inside loads and loads of fab images for me to play with, I love you so much for sending me this gift, my favourite "Yorkshire Pudding" , if any off you have not yet been over to Christines blog, please do that now.....I am getting good with the Orders........LOL

So here goes 5 things I love:

  1. Making Cards
  2. My Crafting Buddies, where would I be without them, I have made so many life long friends
  3. My Family, that goes without saying
  4. Coffee
  5. Chocolate
I am passing the award onto:-

  1. Nikki my daughter who is also crafting and has just won her 1st Challenge, I am so proud off you my darling.
  2. To all of my 121 Followers, I cannot believe that I have so many lovely people following my blog and always taking the time to pop over and give me encouragement, I love each and everyone off you and I could not choose 5 sorry for that, but you are all so very important too please,please take this award and pop it on your blogs.....Love Avril xxxxx

Now for my card, I think I have 5 challenges in this card. I have used the Sketch  CH46 at Charisma, I have used 1st Noel, that fits in with Allsorts WK28 Christmas Carol/Song Title  and Ildi Co CH5 Inspirations - Song Title, Dare 2 Digistamp, CH26 want to see Glitter on your projects using a Digi Image, also Bee-Crafty CH 18 want Sparkle also using a digi image....I have used another image from Linnies - Cute Daisy May  range, these are so great to work with.  I used some papers from my stash colour the Snowman and decoupaged him in parts. I embossed the ends of his scarf with holographic embossing powder and also embossed his body with Sparkle/Glitter, embossing powder, also used snomen gems and other gems from my stash, hope you like, and hope you are all having a fab Sunday.....Love to you all Avril xxxxxx
