Hello there gorgeous peeps out there, just want to thank you first of all for all the lovely comments on my last card - thank goodness the mojo came back just when I needed her!  Tenerifee isn't as far as I thought - lol! 

Anyway, because I have been doing loads of things around here, I forgot almost forgot to do my CCC card for the theme chosen by my matey Sue J (aka Ollie's Mam).  Would you believe this one has been coloured, designed, piccied since 11 am today.  This really is the fastest card ever - for moi!!!  I do lurve these papers from LOTV, positively yummy!  I can see me using them for lots more Chrimbly cards. 

I do apologise for doing this post very quickly but, our new fur baby, Blossom (yes she has moved in as of last Monday) has a 'thing' about my desk and insists on sitting at the front of it between me and the laptop.   I can only 'trype' when she goes out.  Then when she comes back in we have to have 5 mins of meet and greet where she rubs her chops on all the corners of my desk etc etc while purring like a traction engine, to make them 'hers' again.  She then has to sit, legs akimbo, while she washes every nook and cranny she has, once this is done she happily goes to sleep until next food/toilet break!  She is gorgeous though - lol!

Hope you and Graham are both well - and Blossom of course!! Love and hugs from Christine xx
