Hi there fellow blogsters and friendly followers!  I am posting my next DT card for OSAAT Challenge no 184.  The winner will get all the images that the DT used in Challenge no 182 (around $20 worth) and the runner up will get a prize worth $3 - check out the few rules!.  This is an 'Anything Goes' Challenge so I do hope you have a go, have a look at the site anyway, my team mates have created some beautiful cards.

This green background paper/card feels like material and has a lovely texture. 

 I had forgotten that I had these little 'lights' until my recent sort out and they are so cute.  There was about half a metre on a string so I still have some left for another card or two - yippee!

  3. Hi, Sue! This is darling! Love all the traditional green, red, and Christmasy items on your card. I have to say that the singing, googly-eyed Christmas tree is the first I've ever encountered and I can hear it singing, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!" as he delightedly sways to his own music. Super cute! hugs, de

  10. Hi Sue,
    me lovely blogging mate.
    super card yet again. I love that Christmas Tree isn't it the cutest tree. Fab designing as usual.
    Now you have just jogged my memory as I bought those little lights at the NEC in March. Must use them.
    Great photography as usual Graham.
    Beware of 8 legged critters tonight. lol. I bet that Pidgy isn't doing a great job guarding the house from those unwanted little or big pesky critters. lol. I forgot to say earlier I had visions of Graham with yogurt pot in hand and 8 legs dangling out of it. Not a nice vision. You might have put up a warning at the begining of your blog. lol.
    Have a wonderful crafty evening.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
