Ho, ho, ho...whats that I hear??

Morning Crafters!

Happy Saturday! I hope you are all well and had a fab week! I went to see a musical production called That'll Be the Day last night with my sister. It was billed as a musical and comedy treat, featuring sounds from the 50s - 70s. It's been running for 27 years now and so I'm wondering if any of you have ever seen it??

Well, I have to say it was wonderful....amazing performers, great songs and the comedy had me crying! However, I wasn't prepared for how long it lasted....a full three hours and 15 minutes! I couldn't believe it! The tickets were only £21 so it was real value for money! I'm also being a bit musical as Mum is meeting me in London to go and see Singin in the Rain. Its my Birthday pressie from mum and I can't wait! you hear those bells? Maybe the faint rumble of a "ho, ho,ho"?? You must be able to hear it.....all us ladies at My Time to Craft can! Thats because this week's challenge is Christmas in May! So, dust off all those lovely Christmas stamps and embellishments and get crafting!

I decided to go quite contemporary with my design....opting for blues colours and cute stamped images. My tree has been paper pieced onto several pieces of plain coloured paper. My Rudolph has been stamped and coloured with my Promarkers. I've added some sparkle with my Stickles and a little doodling with a fine brown pen.
