Good Morning Everyone, 
well, I'm finally starting to feel a little bit better! It's another quick card from me today. I still have so much to do before Christmas, I'm just not organised at all this year.
Emma's nativity play was fabulous yesterday. I really enjoyed it. They did 'Around the World to Bethlehem' and Emma played a Brazilian Dancer!

I found this Forever Friends stamp at the back of a drawer, totally unloved so I thought I'd give it a go! I've coloured him with my promarkers and added a bit of red ribbon.
I added the sentiment stamp and then wished I hadn't! I'm not quite sure it looks right....too late now!lol

I's like to enter the following challenges:-
Stamping Sensations - Tree Mendous
Make it Monday - Linky Party
Love to Create - Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft - Merry Christmas
Passion for Promarkers - Happy
Reddy Teddy Go - Clean and Simple
Crafts and Me - No Blue s Allowed

Thanks for visiting me today and for all your lovely comments and encouragement. I really appreciate them.
