Just For Fun

Hello everyone, happy Sunday to you all. This is a rare post for me as I found a little extra time to play this week with some images that I've wanted to for ages, that's right not a DT in sight this is just for fun!

I love Kenny K's and I've had this for so long if I didn't get it coloured and posted soon it would have to wait till next Christmas! Meet the lovely 'Mistletoe'
I had this fabulous paper pad from Echo Park, Christmas Spots and Stripes, every sheet is gorgeous and I've been desperate to use it and I thought this image was perfect for the traditional red and green colour combo. I've used some fluffy stuff for the fur trim again, love this technique its ideal for Christmas.

I hope you all have a nice relaxing Sunday, I've got friends coming for lunch so I best go peel some potatoes!!
Thanks for looking and to those that do, for the lovely comments
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
