Merry Christmas @ MAWTT

Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas!
No I haven't gone mad (well actually that's another story cos I probably have!) we really are having Christmas in April, that's the royal we aka


and Hazel has chosen the theme


lol I don't mind as it means I have started my Christmas cards!
Yes - a mini card! I think I will be making quite a few of these for Christmas this year, in fact I wish I'd made more than one of this one as I quite like it! Time is a bit short for me at the minute and mini cards aren't too taxing for me lol, not so much space to fill though they still take me more time than you'd believe!
The papers are quite old DCWV and my snowflake die is a Doo Hickey and the cute little image was given me to play with by this weeks fabulouso sponsor

I love Bugaboo, I never struggle with their images and can always churn out something I'll like! This is Winter Girlz, head over to the challenge blog to see what my fabby gorgeous team mates have made  for your inspiration and all the details of the challenge.

I had to have a filling at the dentist on Tuesday, I'm such a wuss and my dentist is amazing I never feel any pain, he says I never stop talking even with a mouthful of implements!

Thanks for stopping by today, I'm off to Leicester to visit my Mum for a couple of days and I'm taking her to visit her nephew at Birmingham on Friday.

Have a great weekend
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Hello my friend. Personally I think you have all gone mad, Christmas in April. Total madness, its going to be a long year.
Anyway, your mini card is delightful, cute image and lovely colours.
Lots of love, Sandra xx

Morning Laurie..... ooooh this is gorgeous!! (Well, it's pink isn't it?? LOL) Fabbie mini-card which ticks the box straight away.. and what a perfect image! And of course.... I may just have to have that snowflake die!

I think dentists make wusses of the best of us.... I had a brilliant one for nearly 25 years, then when I moved, never have been to one as good. I'm firmly convinced that my current one has been responsible for the pain in my face.... but could I prove it??? Or could I complain????? NOOOOOOOOOO!!

Have a lovely few days with your Mum.... and take care..

Debs said...

Well what can I say - great minds think alike lol!!!
Loving your pink version though - so girlie - just perfect!
Have a good few days.
Birmingham is only just over 1hr away from me!!!???!!!! If you fancy a wee detour - just let me know :o)
Take care and have a fab day.
Debs xx

Kezzy said...

Wow christmas scary lol, but your card is gorgeous. I really like your idea of a mini card, what size die do you use. Think I might have to borrow this idea for christmas as well, actually it would be great for any bulk cards. The image really pops on the smaller card. Your colouring technique is amazing. Thank you for joining us at That Craft Place Challenge Blog this time :-) Kezzy x

Hi Laurie, fab card! Love the idea of mini cards for Christmas - they will certainly stand out from the others.

Wonderful image and love the snowflake.

I'm officially petrified of the dentist. I'm sure they thought I was going to faint once or twice - and I nearly did!!!

Hope it goes well for you.
