Red Christmas...

I have had ten minutes blog hopping and while doing so noticed Challenges..
We all love challenges... I know I like to give them a go
Simon Says Stamp would like Christmas in August
Catch the bug are asking for Anything Goes
and Allsorts would like RED

 So this is what I have made..

 A lovely bright red Christmas card
It is A4 folded in half, I then added backing paper
Red of course.. 
on top of that I used DST to attach ribbon at an angle, 
I then attached the topper of Santa in his Pj's
and I found the hat and present in my stash, 
the present had a silver bow so I carefully removed 
and added red ribbon to match
Then a couple of sticky dots to finish it off.

Oh and to add to the excitement I have someone sat on my keyboard
Yes hector, I thought I would let him out, as he now has the habbit of scratching to let me know its walk about time
so I opened the door and he went for a walk..
the minute I start to type this he is..
Luckily I can reach the keys all I have to do is push his left back leg to
He isn't too bothered and is NOT going to move. as he is now asleep..

Time to fly

Thanks for stopping by xx
