Hi there everyone in blog-land - I hope you are all OK, I've been a tad off-colour just lately but my doctor is really happy with my progress re my diabetes even though things are connected.  Fingers crossed I'll soon be back to my 'normal' dozy self.   In my 'extra' dozy self I didn't post my TTPH card at the beginning of the month, so here it is as a mid-month reminder for you all to enter our latest challenge.

Our sponsor this month is 

and I chose the brilliant digi above to work with - it's definitely a nice hot chocolate in that mug for me!


6" x 6" White card blank - Create and Craft (years and years ago!)
Digi - 'Hot Cocoa' by Kenny K
Creative Expressions - Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder
Tonic Dies - Circle Layering dies
Memory Box Dies - 'Open Studio' Pinpoint Scallop Circles dies
Snowflakes - Kanban Self-adhesive Stickers
Paper - BoBunny Silver 'n' Gold Collection
Acetate - stash
Sentiment printed on Laser printer and then foiled using my Minc machine (I might have mentioned before that I lurve this piece of equipment)

I hope you can find the time to enter this challenge, it doesn't have to be a Christmas card - what about a winter birthday?  We would love to see all of your creations.

Anyway I'll pop off now, as I said I'm not quite myself so I'm keeping it short for once.

Big hugs to you all and take care out there.

Love Sue xxx

  5. Hi Soupie! Your twin girls are SO pretty! This is such a fun card, wonderfully executed!! I'm sorry to hear you haven't been yourself. I hate it when that happens. Do you wander around the house like I do, whispering, "Self. Here, self. Where are you?" I thought so. It sounds like you are nearly there and I hope things continue progressing in the right direction and being under the doctor has you in top form for the holidays! I'm sorry that I've been MIA with having to nurse the Mister back to his own two feet. Sending lots of hugs! Darnell
