Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday everyone!!
I have had a lovely weekend so far!!!! Yesterday some fab ladies came to my Christmas class at my house. We had lots of fun and festive spirit making a gift box, bag and tags and wrapping paper. Here is the box that I made! I know have 4 of these for demo's I have done so they will come in very handy for teacher gifts!!!! Thanks to Vicky for bringing a box of chocs!!! They came in very handy to fill the boxes!!!
Below is my card for the Sketch Saturday challenge. I really enjoy these sketches but have missed the last couple of weeks. I had to make a quick card this morning for my little boys friend. He was going to the party at 11 so the Sketch challenge came in very handy - thanks!!!
The colour combo is Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise and I have used the Rainbow Sherbert papers from SU which are really growing on me for boys cards. They are double sided so I used the thin strip turned over to place underneath the ribbon. Ribbon is SU and sentiment from Craftwork Cards and image is Stampendous.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank the people who have given me blog awards!!! I know I am really bad and I never add them on here!! At the moment I have trouble making cards and uploading them let alone blog awards so a huge sorry. I really do appreciate them and all your kind comments on my projects!!
If you are still pondering about becoming a Stampin Up demonstrator please get in touch with me about joining my team!! 5 lovely ladies have taken advantage of my special offer since the end of October and have earned themselves a fantastic free stamp set of any value from the catalogue. For more information on becoming a dempnstrator please get in touch asap at
My lovely hubby has baked a Christmas cake whilst I was out at the party, yum yum, feeling more festive already!!
