Christmas/New Year is the theme for this weeks Delicious Doodles challenge
I used this wonderful new image from Teri for my card and teamed it up with this lovely holly paper from Funky Hand
The weather here is horrendous- yesterday we had 80mile per hour winds and lashing rain then snow- the wind caught under my car on the way to work and ripped something off so it's away to the garage today to be made all better
Snow is forecast for today and it's not surprising as it's our works Christmas do and it always snows for that
Have a great weekend whatever you are up to

Morning folks,All Distressed is the challenge for this week at Charisma Cardz. I used distress ink and distressed the edges of my paper for this challenge and this cute Time for Tea image, one of our fabby sponsors for this week.
Hope you can join in this week.
Hows the Christmas card making going? I'm kind of up to my eyes in it at the moment and haven't even started on my own ones yet- must start earlier next year.....

There's another set of fab releases over at Funky Hand this weekend. Three new monster digis and Hairy and Scary Papers which are so funky with lovely greens, oranges, yellows and purples and the digi stamps are so fun and great to colour.
Hope you are having a great weekend- I'm looking forward to being snuggled on the couch tonight in my jammies watching X Factor and I'm a Celebrity then off to bed as I'm working tomorrow but looking forward to a couple of days off during the week.
It's my turn to share over at the Get Funky and Craft blog.
I used the fabulous Happy Happy Birthday Cd for the papers and stamped a sentiment in the centre
Why don't you pop over to the blog for a nose about- there's new posts every Wednesday and weekend to inspire you
Have a great Saturday

No Designer paper is the challenge this week at Delicious Doodles
I used a stamp to do my background and then just plain black card, some black and white snowflakes and this gorgeous wintery image Katarina from Teri.
Certainly cold now - hoping the snow keeps away for a while yet and doesn't end up as bad as the forecasters are predicting as I hate having to drive in it.
Hows the Christmas shopping going ? I've got quite a lot of mine done just three to get and a few bits and pieces and have been getting on with my Christmas cards too- which is not like me, it usually takes me ages to get into the Christmas mode and am usually just getting there and then it's all over and done with.
Feel as if I must be forgetting something massive as I'm not usually this organised!!!!

I was asked if I would review Thermomorph and I said yes and was duly sent a big mahoosive tub , it will last for ever and ever.
The tub is full of tiny little pellets that you soak in hot water then they become pliable - you don't get awfully long before it starts to set but the great thing is if you mess it up or it starts to harden then just plop it back in the hot water.
I think it would be ideal if you had any silicone moulds to put it into as when it sets it is solid and will be great for making long lasting 3D embellishments, I have lots of plans in my head- keyrings, fridge magnets etc- just need the time to actually have a good play with it.
You can paint it when solid or use dies and you could probably add glitter too.
So what did I make?
Well after a good few tries I made a flower embellishment and used some cream paint to colour it- at least now I have an idea how to make them so the next one should be better and I will have more time to paint it too.
Would say it well worth the cost of £19.95 per tub as it will last for a very long time and will be ideal to make more flowers to decorate boxes etc and could even add a loop at the bottom of the flower for ribbon to thread through to wrap round a present- note to self...make some Christmas flowers oooh or even snowflakes for all my pressies.......
