Card for my Crafty Friend

Hi all more snow to night, not too much but enough to make life difficult, how I hate winter.  Hope the snow stays off till after nine o'clock because I will have walked the dogs and settled down with a cuppa.

The Blog Candy I received from Sue at Planet Susie was amazing. and I told her I felt guilty accepting all the goodies especially as I did not do anything to warrant it, but she was pleased someone who commented on her blog regularly won. Still it was amazing, thank you Sue.

I have not been making many cards recently a lot going on and I have been falling asleep after dinner every night.  I just get sitting down after doing the dishes and bang my eyes are closed.  Had forty winks tonight and then pulled myself upstairs to the PC to have a browse round your posts.

The card I have tonight was one I made for my young crafty friend Alisha who accompanies my to craft shows.  She loves Tatty Ted and the colour purple so I made this to please her, it was her 10th birthday.

8 x 8 white card
yellow and gold glitter card from stock
Spellbinders Labels Twenty
Tatty Ted topper, letter and embellishments from Docrafts
Ribbon from stock
Very simple card but sometimes I believe less is more, I forgot to photograph the inside but it on the same theme.  She was delighted with it.  I gave her an Advent Frame as a present so am waiting to here from her on how she liked it.  I have had some feedback on the frames from others who purchased them and they all loved them.  As is normal as soon as you sell out someone else wants one but unfortunately its too late to make more.  Next year I don't know if I will sell them filled as its so difficult to get items to fit in the boxes but I amazed myself by filling 25 boxes with two lots of toys and sweets for twin girls.
Well its time for walkies so here I go to don my walking gear.  Luckily the dog usually don't want to go far at this time of night but it will just be my luck that they fancy a walk in the snow.
Take care ladies and wrap up warm.
