Pastel christmas challenge...

... I'm a bit pants at blogging at the moment sorry!!, but I have made my mums christmas card and the perfect challenge has popped up so I'll quickly blog it:

The image is a pre-coloured square from LOTV with papers from a pack from a £1 stall at a fair, I have added ribbon, flower (edged with stickles) and a snowflake cut die from my stash.

I would like to enter this into Totally Gorjuss - Pastel Christmas

My week has not gone well lol, we have new computers at work and trying to get used to the new system is a nightmare - aargh!! On thur I decided to make hobnobs except went wrong with the recipe somewhere and the mixture just spread out all over the baking tray and burnt - oops - err what else oh cocked up a couple of cards - because I cant leave them alone and then spoil them - honestly I need to give myself a good slap!!! Anyhoo, nearly the start of Half Term so hopefully all traumas are over and we'll have a nice stress free week - well as much as you can with two boys, who need to go shopping for new clothes and trainers - aargh!!! Do you think I can delegate this job to Dad - lol - nah I dont really think so either.

Thanks for looking
