Delightful Thursday

Hellooooo there! I am back from London, slightly exhausted but happy it's always such a joy to see my two little Grandsons down there.  I was  looking after them and we went to a zoo/playpark on Monday and to the park on Tuesday so I am shattered and my back is playing up now - grrrr!

Today its time to showcase some more of Wendy's fabulous images over on the Digital Delights Blog.  I have decided I need to start making some Christmas cards instead of leaving it all to the last minute!

I have used Flying Santa available here and he has been coloured with my Copics with Stickles added too!  I cut him out with my Dienamics Pierced Rectangle Stax and matted him using those too. The papers are Nitwits Festive Trimmings (love these).  The sentiment is from the Christmas Hugs Sentiments Set available here and I used the tag from Dienamics Blueprints 6.  The border was made using Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders and applying lots of Diamond Stickles to it.  The button is October Afternoon and the twine, snowflakes, gems and sequins are from my stash.

There are some fabulous makes from the DT if you head over to the Digital Delights Blog for some more inspiration. Over on Delightful Challenges there is a new challenge just started and the theme is Simple Times (Clean and Simple).

Challenges I would like to enter:

Divas By Design - Anything Goes
Fab 'n Funky - Cute as a Button
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Add a Button
Holly Jolly Christmas - Use R E or D (I used Red and Die Cuts)
(PIN)sparational - Photo Inspiration (I used the colours of the photo)
Paper Makeup Stamps - Sequins/Gems

Thank you so much for looking today and the lovely comments you leave. Take care xx

Jules said...

Hi Susan

This is fabulous!

Love that fun image and great sentiment.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. The London Kids have rented for years as they were not sure where their jobs were going to take them .. .. but now seems right time after (apart from interest rates rising!!).

They have another viewing today. Just travelling to look is costing them a fortune as they are relying on the buses/underground etc!!

Shame they don't live nearer to us. I do miss them :-( but it is great looking forward to them coming to stay.

Have a good week Susan.

Love Jules xx
