Well its a bit of a rush today I don't know where the time goes its just as well I'm retired now I could never fit work in!! I went out with Dave (DH) this morning and we were looking for a painting for the hall but couldn't find one (not one we agreed on anyway) however I did get the cutest string of skeletons for Halloween for just 99p!  They were half price because they had a couple of legs missing but I think that just adds to the scariness.  I'm in a rush because I have to get dinner ready and we are going out, we are starting to learn bridge and this is our third lesson tonight and it starts at 7 so I better get a push on!  The card I have to show today is made with a Cuddly Buddy image (rubber) I ordered a few a while back and this is the first time I have used this one but when I went to use it its not the one on the package!  It should have been this: 
Cute eh?  However, the stamp was actually this:

Another cutie!  I have coloured him with copics and used paper downloaded from Raspberry Road.  The Christmas treee I have made with shrink plastic following Bev's fab tutorial and added some gems with Glossy Accents.  I think you get a better view here:

Well not really that much better!  I have coloured the pearl brad with Copics to match the ribbon:

I have used a Nestie behind the image and the border is a Martha Stewart punch.  I would like to enter in the following challenges:

Cuddly Buddy - Recipe: 3 DP, 2 embellishments and 1 Ribbon
ABC Christmas - S for Shaped card to include Swirls, Stripes or Spots - I've used swirls
Kaboodle Doodles - Use lots of layers
Paper Playtime - Easel Card
Victorine Stamps - Easel Card
Thanks for looking, I will try and get round everyone's blog later tonight!  Take care xx
