Happy Christmas Charlotte!!

Oh my gosh, I didn't realise how long it has been since I blogged, I'm really sorry folks!!! I just don't seem to have anytime to do anything these days. I came home early today as I have the lovely cold virus that is going about and feel absolute rubbish, a nice way to spend your birthday!! Yes, tomorrow is the big day when I enter my 50th year, what a thought!!! Can I go backwards now? Please . . . . . At least I have the day off and will be able to do a bit of catching up with writing my Christmas Cards and wrapping, that's if I don't fall over the conservatory in the process!!! Yes it has been delivered but is now spread about the house!!! It is everywhere. I have told hubby that I'm not eating my Christmas lunch off of window frames!! How many of you would put up with this?!!
Anyway enough of my complaining, I have made this card for Charlotte for Christmas and it fits in with five challenges.
Allsorts challenge which is purple
A Spoonful of Sugar which is monochrome
Simon Says Challenge which is a charm
Cute Card Thursday which is Swirly Girly
Stamp is Bear and Robin by Gillian Roberts from Stampevie
Coloured with Copic Markers
Papers are DCVW
Martha Stewart Loop punch
Hobby craft Snowflake punch
Polar Flower Soft fixed with Glossy Accents on the snowflakes
Crystal Glamour Dust on Teddys hat and snow
Card, brads, gems, spacers, charm and ribbon from stash
Hope you like it
