Lucy for Lucy!

Good afternoon from a wet, windy and freezing Liverpool! Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday. I was up bright and early today and Dave and I got through the housework in no time (gosh, I did train him well - even if I say so myself, lol!!) The Christmas tree is twinkling in the corner (I'll ignore the fact that it's slightly lopsided) and I can smell my lovely Cinnamon Stick candle burning - now it's beginning to feel like Christmas! I got some unexpected time in my craft room earlier so decided to make the last card for Lucy from one of her uncles. I checked my emails first and I'm soooo glad I did because this little cutie was there along with some other gorgeous images - thanks Sally-Ann!! This is Snuggly Lucy and of course you can find her at the fabulous DigiStamp Boutique. This must be a first for me as I'm usually weeks behind my teamies when it comes to using the new images!

As you can see from the photo, due to my self imposed paper ban, I'm now using paper I've had for at least five years. I'm starting to crave new paper pads!! It's all Lisa's fault, lol!!
I'm entering this card into this week's challenge at The Crafty Pad - Give it a Punch
I'm off to see to the dinner in the oven and Molly and Lucy will be back round soon.
Will be round to visit later,

You have done so well with your paper ban! :) This is such a cute card and the paper looks fab, especially like the text paper.

We have snow here in the highlands, been snowing all day, and I am happy to say I got both my xmas trees and all my decs and lights up too. I am not usually so organised at all! lol.

Hi Katina

What a lovely card, and you're post has made me feel all christmassy too! My tree is up now and I so enjoy looking at it - I so love doing my tree - its like Christmas morning opening my presents when I open the boxes of decorations as I always forget exactly what I've got and I love the surprise of seeing it all again (I'm beginning to sound quite sad now so I'll stop there!)

You take care and speak soon!



Andrea said...

Hi Katina - I love your card - it doesn't matter how old the papers are, they are gorgeous.
That image is so adorable - ear muffs seem to be the 'in thing' for little girls at the moment - my Eleri is asking for some anyway!
I hope you have a fab week.
Love, Andrea xx

Cazza said...

Awww Katina this is so super cute, I'm sure Lucy will love it! She sure does look snuggly!
Not long to go now until the paper ban is up... :o)

Wishcraft said...

Ooh it's gorgeous Katina, your 'old' papers are lovely :o) Lucy's super cute too, love how you've coloured her.

I'm really craving new paper now, but there's not long to go yippee!! I'm determined not to buy too much paper next year though, I've barely made a dent in my stash this year. Lisa x

Rachel x said...

This is lovely, Katina- so clean and fresh, perfect for a little girl!! :) I actually have some of these papers, too- they were the first DPs I bought and I still really like them... which is good as it was a big pack and so there's plenty left!!lol
BTW, just to add to the list of co-incidences- my sis is called Lucy!! How many is that now?!lol :)
hugs, Rachel x
