Friday Sketchers - Pip with Presents

Yeah, I've made a start on my Christmas cards and isn't this little boy just the cutest with his little present pile. I followed the great sketch by Mumur for this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge. I really enjoyed this challenge this week and the sketch gave me a chance to go mad with some fibres!

Yesterday I received two awards.. the first was the "Wylde Woman" award from Erna and also the "I love your blog" award from Maria. Thank you both so much for passing these to me and for making my day.

I wanted to also show you this beautiful card that arrived from my friend Kristine with some images. Thank you so much Kristine you are the best!Enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you Tuesday with my challenge card. We are off to see Wall-E tomorrow which the children are really looking forward to.

Hugs,
