This fortnight it was my blog bud Sue J's (Olliesmam) turn to pick the theme for our CCC and she chose Nativity. I found my pic on the internet from a Bing Colouring Page 'cos I couldn't find one in my collection of stamps or toppers! I didn't start it until yesterday because I had left my Mojo in Scarborough with the awful wet weather. I've posted a picture below of how it looked through the hotel window - bloomin' YUK!!!
Anyway here is my CCC Nativity card for you to look at -
The paper covering the actual card is more of a red rather than a purple but the daylight changed it slightly. I feel I should have made the skyline a little darker now that I see it on here but then I would have had to make the sand darker so I left it. No wonder my cards take so long, I am always tweaking here and there. I said TWEAKING!!!!

I am so grateful to you for stopping by my blog and would like to thank you for all the comments on my last card - they made me feel very happy and are such a boost to my confidence. Before I leave you, I just wanted to post a couple of pics from a sunny Scarborough but I couldn't find any so I hope you will excuse these very wet and miserable looking ones.
Sue J was all for going surfing, but as I have a leak in me wetsuit we decided it wasn't a good idea, who knows what would happen if I got waterlogged around me flippers. Shame I had left me puncture repair outfit at home.
On a happier note, Sue had made me a gorgeous wooden tag with vellum butterflies and a beautiful verse on it together with a Friendship booklet containing the picture of us both with Crafty Bob at the NEC - if I put the picture on the mantelpiece it should keep the cat away from the fire though!!! Only joking - I was truly chuffed to bits with my pressies - (there was also some lace, pearls and ribbon trim for me to play with - yum yum!). I think we rattled and cackled on for over 5 hours - we both have the most patient and adorable hubsters in the world and we are looking forward to next time already!!!
Oh well, I have kept you long enough, so thank you once again for stopping by and if you have had time to leave me some comments, I am grateful to you.
Big hugs to you all and take care of yourselves.
