Spoonful of Sugar challenge



Evening all you lovely bloggers, are you all still getting frost or snow, we have had more frost than snow, but it is supposed to warm up atouch for week-end, then freeze again.....oh well....stay warm, thats all I can say.

This is SFOS last challenge for the year, and it's a Christmas card, no probs there, still haven't done all mine....hopeless this year.Image coloured with Promarkers, lots of glitter and glamour dust, ribbon from stash,swiss dot from friend..Red card stamped with snowflakes and embossed.

Went to see my Grandsons first school play this afternoon, both Lucas and Kaleb should have been in it, but Kaleb is quite poorly at present, so he has had to miss out...it's sad as he is the biggest 'performer' of them both...lol...anyway, Lucas was a shepard, he did really well, even did a song,I had a cry, all the sweet little faces, oh it was lovely, I always end up crying, lord only knows what I will be like when I have to go see Mia in concert next week, they may just have to carry me out...lol...yes I am a bit dramatic....so what...lol....ANYWAY....I hope that whatever your doing in your bit of the world, is making you happy, take care and try to keep warm, thankyou for your visit, big hugs Janette.xxxxx

Oooo hunny this is stunning, I will admit I was never keen on that image but you have coloured her beautifully and I've changed my mind.
Hope little Kaleb gets better soon, & thanks for the advance warning that Kleenex sales will soar next week lol. Hope Mia has a wonderful time and you can see her through the tears lol

Hi Janette, your lady looks amazing, with such great colouring and all that glitter she is stunning. I think I'd cry at school plays if I had any kids in them...heck, I'd cry anyway, lol. We have a thaw here, no snow for days now but the frost is lingering on. Oh, and thanks for your lovely comments on my blog, I do appreciate them, petal. CoB
