My Lovely Friends,

Just for you and Christmas too

Hi Peeps,
I'm writing this using my old over the counter glasses which work better than my prescription ones, where's the sense in that!! any way I've had a word with the optician who now says because my computer isn't low enough I'll need different glasses than the ones I've got,so I'm back to them on Friday for another measure, you'd think they would have asked where my screen was before they prescribed glasses if it's  a problem wouldn't you?
My first card is for Colour create and the colours this time are chosen by our lovely talented Sharon who's chosen
Purple,Aqua and white with the optional extra of swirls,

I'm entering this into the following challenge,
Copic creations ~ Colourless Blender Techniques, I've done her socks,
The swirl is a Doo Hickey die, Marianne  flower and circle die, Quickcutz Snowflakes die, Tilda image and Ticket Magnolia, Glamour Dust, white Pen for cheek highlights, A lovely gift from Cheryl, thanks hun,

My Paperplay Card is another colour combo for you this time it's
Blue, Orange and Olive Green,
 ABC Challenge  ~ F is for Flowers,

The gorgeous Magnolia image is another recent new stamp, isn't she so cute, again coloured with Copics, the  lacy ribbon is from Hobbycraft, the flower is made using three sizes of a scalloped circle nestie, wet, scrunched and layered together with a brad, the leaves are A Magnolia Doo Hickey die,  scalloped  edge die quickcutz, circle and scalloped circle nestability  dies,

Again I've not had much chance for visiting you or finding challenges due to my sore eyes but I hope the next time I get my glasses they will be right as these old ones are beginning to make them sore again, GRRRR,
Anyway I hope your all ok and having fun,
