Hi there friends and bloggers out there and a warm welcome to my new follower Niki from Pawsitively Creative - brilliant name for a blog by the way!   Well ... this fortnight over on the OSAAT challenge our theme is Anything Goes with 'Winter' so I immediately thought icicles, glitter, snowflakes and a little winter fairy!  I was going to use shades of blue but as I'd just recently made a 'blue' card I changed my mind and used lilac and pale green plus white.  This could be for a winter birthday or a Christmas card, I'm not sure just yet so I typed out 'Warmest Winter Wishes' and .... you've guessed it, I popped it through my very useful Minc machine with some holographic silver foil over the words.  This is now my new favourite foil because the colours are amazing - just like the colours in an opal gem stone - my favourite gem of all.

I've just added the following pic 'cos it shows the glitter and the Wink of Stella (on her wings, wand and shoes) off to a better effect.

I love this little fairy she's so cute and you could use her for all seasons of the year by just changing the colours and embellishments. Sorry that the pic isn't as bright as it should be but the light is abysmal here today - as is the weather!!

Here's the winners' prize for December

I hope you can enter our challenge this fortnight, we would love to see your creations on our blog.  

Thanks loads for popping by and for all the comments hoping I'm feeling better - you are all stars - if I've not said this before (once or twice).

By the way we have a new addition to the family - fur-baby of course - we know a little about this one - he was left behind when his family moved from their rented accommodation and he was in a really poor state with three nasty red raw sores on his shoulder, back leg and tail.   We couldn't leave him so we've fed him, taken him to the 'doctors' and made him wear a silly hat (well a Buster Collar really).  He's definitely looking better and he's quite happy taking his tablets as long as they have a coating of cheese!  We've called him Biscuit - well the maestro has!  You'll never guess why until you see the picture that will follow shortly of course.

Big hugs to you all and please take care.

Lots of love  Sue xxx
