Lil Ragamuffin....

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well and rested after the big day..I have eaten my through my boxes of chocolates...and thats counting the ones before Christmas, and nearly a whole box of chocolate biscuits...
I deserve to be sick...but I'm not...I have a cast iron stomach when it comes to it.

I had a fabulous Christmas, my daughter and her family bought me a new umberella for the garden table.. huge, no holes, no broken arms, just fits in the hole in my shaving wood off..

My son bought me a new DVD mine gave up the ghost...probably full of dog
and then all the others bits and pieces...and a 12x12 pad of gorgeous papers Crafters Choice 'Country Basics'...spots and stripes and the odd sheets of flowers...fabulous colours...then there were pearls and ribbons,black and white card stock...2 packets...papers stubs for blending my pencils....where they found those was beyond me...been looking all over for those....Oh!!! all sort of crafty things from the G/sons...what a great Christmas.....they took me shopping on boxing day so I could choose for myself most of my goodies...and hears me moaning that they dont buy me crafty stuff.....I take it back.

Then I went and won a candy from the lovely  Marianne   

and then from the sweet   Kylie 

Thank you both much.

Now I have a card to share.....

Freebie image from the artist 'Sherri Baldy' from Addicted-to-stamps  called Lil Ragamuffin
"Best foot Forward"...

Close up of image.....coloured with pencils, added glitter to her hair and skirt...she's beautiful.

Side view...

Fabulous image to colour....kept the card fairly...well.!.. very plain with just the added die, from Marianne creatables.

Be sure to check out the Facebook page for Addicted to Stamps, as they often introduce new products on Wednesday nights and have specials. You can also see a wonderful gallery of projects. Check out the store for both digital stamp and rubber stamps at

So there you go...all done and I'm smiling from ear to ear...might celebrate being so happy with a chocolate
Welcome to my new followers, thank you so much  for joining me...and thank you to all for your lovely comments you leave me...

Hello my sweet friend. I just got home from seeing my wonderful family on the other side of our state. I received your adorable Christmas card and I just love it. You and Harry both look so spectacular in your picture. Truly adorable. I am happy to hear that you have had a great Christmas. I really love your card her with this little gal and her sparkly hair. Really great idea. I love it. Hope you have a Happy New Year. We are staying home with the M&Ms and playing cards until the ball falls. lol... We bought some of that sparkling grape juice and are going to make a party of it for the kids. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Lisa
