Xmas is Coming to the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today is the first day of my week off, and my sister arrived for her visit yesterday, it is lovely to see her, don't see her very often, she is my only sister and my younger one too.  Going to enjoy spending a couple of days with her. Last night after drinking eating Chinese and celebrating Mike's birthday, we sat and chatted until 1.45am, my car is in for it's MOT today, so had to set the alarm to make sure I got up, unfortunately had had a few drinks and must have misread the alarm clock, it dutifully woke me up at 5.45am instead of 6.45am, so quickly creating my post whilst trying to drink lots of coffee to wake me up and fingers crossed the car does not have too much wrong with it, then I will have more money to spend in some craft shops in the local area for my holiday treat. So with that said and matches in my eyes to hold the little lids up

I would like to apologise for not commenting as per normal and will in a couple of days hopefully be back on track :)

Today also sees the new challenge at the

with our very talented Tracie choosing the theme this week of

Xmas is Coming

So here is what I created for my Design Team inspirational piece
I know it is another gold mirror card creation lol xx , but forgot how stunning it looks with the colours of Xmas.
This time I have used some really old papers so sorry cannot remember the make, the gold perfectly compliments and enhances the papers though.  The image of course is Whiff of Joy and the sentiment is My Sentiments Exactly. The gold leaves have been die cut from a nestie set and the flowers are a mixture from Hobby Craft, Wild Orchid and a local department store.
awwwwwwwwwwwwwww aren't they so cute ?

Now don't forget to hop over to the challenge site to see the rest of the teams fabulous inspirational treats.
