Too much food and wine....

Well, I guess its not Christmas unless you overindulge!   Got home last night and had salad and pasta .  But tonight there is more ham, salads, new potatoes....and trifle....and more chocolate.....sigh!!!!!

Vinnie came with us to Papamoa  to stay with  the BIL & SIL cos he won't be left behind (but we left Riley with a house full of poodles and Brodie with his best buddie Solly and family).  I almost died when I saw the 14 year old (middle) and 16 year old nieces (far left) ... they are both close to 6 feet tall and make my stepdaughter (far right holding her brother Vinnie!) look almost short ( she towers over me!) 

Nephew tuckered out after opening all his loot. 

 and naughty Hattie who got in trouble for chasing the cats!

Hope everyone had a lovely christmas and now its back to work for some of us, then New Year !!! Yipee! Well, actually it'll be a very quiet New Year for us, DH will be on call so no drinking for him therefore no parties!!!!!

Its Celebration time!!!! Yipeeee!

The new challenge at Southern Girls is " Celebration"  and whatever that means to you. 
 My dogs will be celebrating lots of goodies for christmas so when I saw this gorgeous image from Di's Digi Downloads ( one of our sponsors for this challenge)  , I had to use it of course! Its called Barney's Bone and makes me think of the one christmas I wrapped doggie chewy treats up then shut the cat in the same room with them only to find a couple of hours later that all the pressies had been ripped open and inspected by Patrick ! He was peeved as his pressie wasn't there with them!

The paper is several years old, from  Little Yellow Bicycle . The gorgeous snowflake I got from Linda at The Funkie Junkie and the pearls from Quixotic Paperie.

Recolour an image

The new challenge at Make it Colourful is to recolour an image from earlier in the year. I made a pirate card months ago with Alvida the pirate but I was never really happy with the colouring. I kept seeing parts of her differently every time I looked at her!   Same again this time! LMAO!  

Anyway, I tried for better shading this time and I think I'm happier with this result!

First go
 Second go

Don't forget to check out the gallery with everyone's examples .

Buttons & Ribbons

The new challenge at Little Miss Muffet is to use ribbons & buttons on your project.   So I did my usual and coloured in, made the card, THEN thought about the challenge....arrrrgh!  Luckily its easy enough to add ribbons and buttons! LOL! Too much rushing at the moment, with so much happening!

Anyway, I've used Allison & Abby and put them in a MIC background .
As always, my teamies have done a wonderful job so pop on over and check them out and join in our challenge.

New Release!!!!!!

Yay! Its new release time again at Little Miss Muffet!   I thought I'd be good and do two cards, one for each day of new releases, even though time is getting precious at the moment...but Duh! I used the two images for Friday instead so I have two cards for you tonight instead!

First is Agent Popcorn zipping. Yeehaaa! Looks like fun, I wanna go too!

Then of course we have the dreaded "boy card" which I find so hard to do. You can't load these ones with girly stuff.   This is Bandit boy Tom and I love his froggie.  Typical boy! 

The DT have some gorgeous examples using these images over at the challenge blog, so pop on over and leave some love.  

Now next job........I really need to write myself a list of things to do! I had a major panic thinking I didn't have time to finish another DT card, but realised I still have another week....phew!!!!!

Non traditional Christmas Colours

I'm rapidly losing track of what I'm up to at the moment, too much is going on!  We had BIl & SIL stay last night and they've just headed off on their motorbike for a trip around South Island and I've been wandering around tidying up and thinking, what else do i have to do? Ummm, don't think anything is due.....CRAP! My post isn't even written for EFG, I've done the wrong image for my LMM card today and our internet is playing up majorly as our ISP is having "issues"! Can't check my emails .....grrrrrrr......

Anyway, I have a card done for EFG and we want some non-traditional christmas colours this time.

I've used paper from CC Mitten weather , sentiment from whimsy and a Marianne Die.  The image is the gorgeous Willy & Mia from Emerald Faerie Garden.

Now check out the challenge, there are 2 winners each time now and you get to choose 2 digi stamps if you win!!!! Woohoo!
