Good afternoon hope all is well your end and at least the weather is dry here although be it a little dull. When I have finished this I am off to cut the grass with a little help from my son as i am not up to lifting heavy mowers yet but getting there.

Hello it is me and Wednesday here again so it is time for another challenge at Creative Inspirations, but before that I would like to say sorry for being a bad blogger and not coming to visit. I have had a bit of a relapse in my colitis so have been busy running backwards and forwards and have spent alot of time in bed. But enough of that i think i managed to get my DT duties last night fairly up to date.

This week at Creative Inspirations we have a fab challenge for you we would like to see cards or projects with Animals on so get all those cute stamps or pictures out if you crop. Maybe you are into ATC whatever we would love to see them. The team have put together some amazing samples for you all to gaze on and hopefully inspire you so pop on over and have a look. Talking of the team our sponsor this week is our own Stephanne who is giving this fab stamp to this weeks challenge winner.

Now onto my card I have used a Penny Black and made my 1st Christmas card. Papers and embellishments are all from my stash left over from last year. I have so much Christmas papers that I am sure there is enough for this year too but I bet I buy more.I used gold holographic miri board to mount it onto and gold satin for the top corner. Image coloured with my promarkers. Hope you like and please pop by the teams blogs they have some amazing cards to share with you all.
