Teenage Christmas!

Morning All,

And a Happy Monday to you!  I hope you all had a good weekend?  Were you happy with the result of I'm a Celebrity?  And the finalists of the X-Factor?  Poor Robbie and Ola being voted out of Strictly  :o(  Although they did deserve to go really but it was still a shame!

Today I have another Pollycraft Challenge Mid-Way Reminder for you, now we're half way through the challenge.  This time it's a card for my oldest Nephew who's 14, aggghhh a dreaded teenager lol!  But luckily for me Paula has created a perfect Casper Silvermist just for the occasion, 'Too Cool for Christmas'.  Here he is...

A close up of the super cool Casper...

Inside of card...

And a side view...

I'm also going to make a money gift wallet for my Nephew too as that's what he wants for Christmas, nice and easy!

So you still have 2 more weeks to join in the Christmas Fun challenge, see you over at Pollycraft!

I'll be back during the week as I actually managed to make a couple of cards over the weekend (wahoooooo!) so I'll share them later on.  I also have some Christmas Tree piccies for you, ooooo don't you just love a twinkling light or two!!  Here's the tree in my front room (sorry for the blurry piccies!)...


And here's the tree in my kitchen...

LOVE IT!!  If only I had a bigger house, I'd have a tree in my bedroom lol!

I hope you all have fab weeks this week and I'll see you all soon,
Much love,
