1 Card, 3 Challenges........


Oh dear, Am I the only one who seems to be rushed off my feet or could it have something to do with Christmas and my forthcoming holiday approaching! Theres me thinking I had the week to craft and get ontop of making more christmas cards, blog hopping and visiting the forums. I've a hectic week ahead so will only be crafting in the evenings for the time being so apologies for not blog hopping, just cant afford the time but will visit if I can. Anyway, back to the card. Still trying to get christmas cards made up but found this stamp (another Ally Pally purchase). He needs little colouring but I love the image and think he makes wonderful cards. I am entering this in this weeks, One Stop Craft Challenge, this weeks theme being Blue, Crafty Muse which is to make a Christmas Card and Rainbow Lady which is snowmen. The stamp is by Hampton Art and have coloured with Promarkers and added a jewel to the star, may use this stamp on a few more cards this week to. Back to the laundry. I've a ton to wash before I can get it all in the suitcases so hope to catch up soon and keep my blog up to date.

That card is beautiful. And way to go for doing 1 card for 3 challenges! That's awesome!!

I am feeling pretty frazzled myself. Between a teething baby, a tantrum-throwing toddler, housework, Christmas cards, Christmas gifts, shopping, baking, and trying to keep myself halfway sane, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. :)
