MAWTT - Christmas Animals

 Hello and Good Morning! it's the turn of Team B again over at

and our lovely Jennie L has chosen a fab theme of .....

'Christmas Animals'

I've made another CraftsUPrint Card..... it's a Kit called The Cutest Christmas Dog... and I think he's the sweetest little pup. The card was meant to be circular with a stand. But I decided to put the design onto a 6 inch card blank. I covered the card blank in red card as I thought it would tie in with his hat. Lots of decoupage on the flowers and bells, but it doesn't show up very well in the photo. I added pearls to the bells and gems to the bows. To finish, I added lots of sparkle to the fur trims on his hat, and also to the flowers.

Please do pop over to our main site at MAWTT for more details, and there you can see the rest of the Team's very cute Christmas Animal creations!! I hope you can join us for this fun challenge...

It's been a strange month for me. I had a bad fall a couple of weeks ago. The Stairlift got stuck halfway down, with the fold down runner across the hallway. I went to phone the engineer, then came out of my room, forgetting about the runner, tripped over it, and went flying, and twisted as I landed. I went to A & E to get checked out and thankfully no bones broken. I've sprained my upper left arm and my lower right back. So it's been nightmare getting a comfortable position to sleep in. I had to sleep bolt upright for a week. Now I can sleep on one side. Things are improving slowly. I've got a bit of movement in my left arm now,  but think it will take a while to come up to strength. I'm glad that I'm right handed. I can do a bit of decoupage now!
 I'm looking forward to catching up with you all! 😉
Take Care
Love and hugs
