Fifi Goes Walkies

Hello my lovely crafty friends - l hope you are all well and back to normal after all the festivities. Christmas is all packed away and stacked in boxes in the garage.  The stack seems to be getting bigger after a few purchases - l have bought some icicle lights for the conservatory - an absolute bargain reduced from £50 down to £15 in Argos - they were sold out when l checked them but have been checking daily and they had a set in on sunday afternoon (they were out sunday morning) so l reserved them - then my daughter wanted some but they were sold out so l must have got the last set - never mind she can have my old rope light :). 
 I also have an addiction to christmas wrapping paper - l did not need any but it was reduced in Asda so l bought 3 rolls, then l saw some in sainsbury's with about 70% off so l bought....11 rolls - all different, then l went into asda again this week and bought 2 more - then l called into sainsburys on monday and they were selling it all off for 20p ... well l could not stop myself and bought 2 more and 10 bottle bags at 10p each. So........if ever there is a wrapping paper shortage l have over 30 rolls :)
Do you have any sale addictions???? 

Enough waffle and onto my card - l bought this stamp from Funky Kits a couple of months ago and have only just got around to colouring this little piece of sugar.  I made this card just because l wanted too and am pleased with the way it turned out and l am entering it into a couple of challenges.

A very cute card Susan, love the color scheme! I haven't taken down my Christmas decorations yet. Was going to do it yesterday, but then school was cancelled and the kids had friends over, so it was left undone. I love shopping the after Christmas sales, but haven't done much of it this year, as I have way too much stuff already!

Such a gorgeous card Susan, your image is beautiful and you have used such lovely warm colours.
I have avoided the sales this year, I still have lots of wrapping paper left from last year and always end up with stacks if bargains that I don't really need!

This is beautiful Susan, I love the image and I have so many that wait patiently in a box and they, like yours, really should make an appearance. Gorgeous.

Btw you can keep the Noor bade on your site as I will draw a winner every 10,000 visitors so it will save you keep taking it off and remembering to put it on.

I will also be drawing a random commenters candy soon too. Every comment name goes into my pot and it's building up now :)

Have a good evening.

Oh yes, I am addicted to stamp supplies! I need Supply Addicts counseling!! Loved this little piece of sugar, as you so rightly called it. Your coloring is great on this little sweetie, and the DP patterns worked so well to complement the image and card design. A wealth of lovely lace, pretty ribbon, charm, and all the other embellishments were just perfect for this little walking duo. Happy wkend, and enjoy your pretty papers. (hey you can use them for DP too!). Hugs & TFS
