5 weeks today .........

Happy Friday ........

Yes, 5 weeks today and it will be Christmas Eve.  5 weeks!!!!!!!!!
I'm no where near organised yet ..... how about you?   It's a very slow process this year ...... I've still got all my cards to make!

I am playing along with the last CAS Christmas Card Challenge for 2021 so here's one more at least for the festive box

The theme is Christmas Critters, so out came the Penny Black stamps where I found this little cutie ..... 

His Christmas list looks a little bit like mine!

I stamped the sentiment first, just slightly off centre, using a red ink.  
I do love large Christmas sentiments, and this one is a real favourite ....... I love the different fonts.

I added a touch of sparkle to the word 'Christmas' using a glue pen and fine crystal glitter ..... not sure it comes across well in the photo but trust me, it looks so pretty when the light catches.

 I stamped my little critter off to the side and watercoloured him using Distress inks

I felt it needed a little something extra so, to finish off I added a few gold ink splatters ..... perfect!

I must say I am tempted to start decorating the Christmas trees ......... I helped Lauren with the one where she works yesterday so that kind of got me in the mood! 
We've nothing planned this weekend so maybe I'll start gathering all the boxes together, and then I can make a start.  Now where did I put all those new baubles!!!!!

Thanks for popping by ...... enjoy the rest of your day and have a lovely weekend.

Cheerio until next time .......

  1. Love this big, merry sentiment, Linda! And that little critter with her shopping list is adorable! My list is long too. Hope to see you Christmas trees soon!

  2. Cutest card Linda, and love that sentiment script and that you added the glitter. Thinking of the tree myself as we've been decluttering and there are 5 boxes of decorations.. I'm a terror for buying at the end of the season, have fun, hugs Robyn

  3. OMG so cute, I love the little mouse and his Christmas list and perfect match with the sentiment ♥

  4. What a cute critter checking his list. Yep, mine is like that too, and it is mostly stamps!

  5. Love your cute little critter, Linda! Your sentiment is perfectly placed above his long list and I love the mixed font! Thanks for joining in the fun at CAS Christmas!

  6. What a cute image ... and you have coloured it to perfection. LOVE it with the large sentiment Linda! Great design! You are making me nervous with your countdowns! xx

  7. Your sweet little critter looks a bit overwhelmed by that very long Christmas list!! Love the contrast of the large sentiment and the small image. Thanks so much for adding this to CAS Christmas!
