Hello everyone. Nice to see the sunshine out again - always makes me a wee bit happier. And, I need it today, lol. I am very tired just now and was meant to be having an early night last night but...ended up at the vets with Steven's wee hamster, Manny. The poor wee thing has 'wet tail'. Not a very nice thing to have. The vet gave him some fluids and antibiotics  to see how he gets on but I'm not that sure it's going to work. He is quite lethargic and isn't eating and drinking. Apparently, if he doesn't eat then his gut will seize up and that will be it. Poor wee mite! Oh well, only time will tell.

Anyway, I know that it is very early for this kind of card but, I got the image in my win the other week and just had to use him.

Medium: Spectrum Noir:
 Papers: NitWit Collections;
Sentiment: Cuddly Buddly Tickets;
Tools: Craft Knife for distressing edges; Cuttlebug and Star nesties.

Crafty Cardmakers: Distress It;
 ABC Christmas Challenge: Keep It Simple;
Fab N Funky: Celebrations;
 Simon Says: Anything Goes (2nd entry);
One Stop Craft: One for the Boys.

So, that's my first (and maybe the only) Christmas card made for this year. I am off to play with my new goodies - The Glitter Pot had some lovely half price stamps on their website - which of course, I just had to have, lo.

Thanks for stopping by
