Gift Wrapping

Good Evening Everyone, 
Sorry I haven't been around for a while. I was hoping to get some crafty time at the weekend but...no chance! hubby was playing cricket for the village team, (they lost!) and the kids wanted to go and watch. I took them down to the Cricket club at 1pm....had a beer or 2 with a couple of friends .....and got home at 7.30pm!!! ...no crafting! lol, but a lovely afternoon!!
Anyway I had the chance to make a quick card this morning.....but then blogger has been playing up.
This is 'Gift Wrapping' from Sugar Nellie. 
I've coloured her with promarkers and added lots of glitter to her fairy wings. The background papers are First Edition - Silent night.
I've used a Spellbinders poinsettia die, a spellbinders edgeability die, and a Marianne Creatables ivy die. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
The Sugar bowl - anything Sugar Nellie -Final challenge :-( 
Sweet Stampin Christmas  - Christmas Fairies
Christmas Stampin All Year Long - Colour Inspiration
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra - Anything Christmas
Loves Rubbr Stamps - Handmade Flowers

I'm having the same problems with blogger as a few other people....no reading list and it won't let me load some blogs. I promise to visit you all as soon as I can.
I must dash...Number 1 son has cricket practice and it turns out no 1 daughter wants to start cricket next year....mmm I can see a pattern!
Thanks for visiting my little blog today and for all your lovely comments.

Gorgeous card Lorraine. I love the sweet image and beautiful colouring.
I decided not to watch my Son playing cricket on Sunday but then wished I had because he got his first 50 and won the match by scoring a 4 on the last ball. He was on such a high when he got home!
