Progressive Challenge Card...

 Evening Everyone,

Well It's been a damp and dull day here today. Not cold anymore. I think I prefer the cold and ice to the rain. Hope you're all safe with the bad weather we have been having. 
 My card tonight is for the Gerda Steiner Progressive Monthly Challenge. I have been doing the challenge now every month and love getting the new image to play with.  This month its a cute wee bunny doing a spot of sewing. So I decided to do a wee bit as well on the card!!!

What I did on Sunday...

 Hi Folks,

WOW the weekend certainly does fly past!!!   I spent my Sunday afternoon doing these 12 thank you cards for my Dad.
 Hes an Elder at his local Church of Scotland and is on one of the Welcome Teams. (Hes Team Leader) He has resigned though due to his ill health this year so in a fortnight is his last Sunday with the group. He wanted to give each of his Team a Thank You Card. :) 
 I wasn't quite sure what to do but Im happy with how they turned out. 
 The cards are made with the following stamps.
Middle-Indigo Blu
 Bottom-  Kanban
Stamp on Envelope - Bee Crafty.
I did the inside sentiment on the computer, the font I picked was Toledo.

I have coloured the stampendous flowers in with my promarkers. The others have some Sakura Glittery pen on them for some festive sparkle.

Thanks for dropping by today. Have a lovely week whatever youa re up too,

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

Day 6...

 Hi Folks,

Haaa I typed Day 6 in and then heard Marcus Bentley's voice saying Day 6 in the Big Brother House!!! No idea why that popped into my head. 

Its Not day 6 in the BB house but day 6 of Christmas Chaos for Bugaboo!!!  
One of my oldest friends moves house tomorrow so thought I would do her and the family a cute wee new home at Christmas creation.  Its meant to be freezing tomorrow but no rain forecast so fingers crossed that it all goes well.
