Christmas Caroling

Good morning. Brrrrrr it's sooooo cold here in Gloucestershire today - but it's the sort of Autumn morning that I love - crisp and fresh with the sun shining - better than damp, grey and miserable :o)

Sorry I've not been around for a few days, I've been having a wonderful time with my scrummilicious Grand-daughter Lola Arizona (have posted some piccies at the end) but unfortunately she has to go home to Mummy today - the house seems so quiet when she goes :o(

This week is my quieter week for DT projects so that means I get a little more 'free play' time and today I would like to share a card I have made for a few challenges - will link as usual at the end.

I took my initial inspiration for my card from the current challenge at Tiddly Inks - 'Make it Like Lou' and with Lou being a good blogging buddy I just had to have a go and I decided to use the LO from Lou's card.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the lovely girlies at Tiddly Inks for picking me in their 
Top 5 for their Halloween challenge - with this entry :o)

This uber cute image is 'Wryn Goes Caroling'
Coloured with PM's and FM's

 Shaped Card base from Craftwork Cards - bought at the GNPE
Sentiment - LOTV and die cut with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Christmas tags
Stars and Baker's twine from stash

Have a fabulous day.
