Delightful Thursday

Hello and welcome to another Delightful Thursday where the DT over on the Digital Delights Blog get to showcase some more of Wendy's fabulous designs.  Here is my card:

This is one of my all time favourite Christmas images of Wendy's he's called Nutcracker Kiddles and you can find him here. I always make a card with him each year he's just so cute! I have coloured him with my Copics and used quite a lot of Stickles around the mat which are cut with Spellbinders dies.  I made a centre step card for a change.  I have used Memory Box Frostyville Border and Lawn Fawn scalloped stitched borders.  I think the papers are MME but, to be honest, my craft room is such a mess that I can't find a blasted thing in it at the moment.  A massive tidy up is on the cards for the New Year (yet again).

On a sadder note, Delightful Challenges are having their last challenge today.  Wendy has decided to close the challenge in order to devote more time to Digital Delights - which will not be going anywhere!! The last challenge is Celebrate and is sponsored by Digital Delights so we would love to see your creations in our last challenge.

I am taking my Aunt out for lunch today, our last before Christmas.  I am going to make some spiced red cabbage this morning and pop it in the freezer for Christmas Day.  Yesterday I made Mary Berry's White Chocolate and Ginger Cheesecake and that is languishing in the freezer too - I am fast running out of freezer space!! 

Thank you so much for calling to see me and all the lovely comments, I really appreciate them as I know how busy everyone is at this time of year.
