Do you need image therapy?! if so pop over to MAWTT this week

Good morning all

We have a new challenge today for you over at

Our lovely Carole is our hostess this week

and has chosen the theme

No image
(so you see - no image therapy required ha ha)

I've been struggling for time these last couple of weeks so decided to make an easy peasy card with some papers and stickers I bought last year - exactly for the purpose of quick Christmas Cards 
.... except I didn't use them - now I'm sure none of you ever buy things that don't get used lol.

I've got a whole set of these toppers with Christmas words and they do make really quick cards -well it would have been quick except it took me half an hour to choose which papers to use, I have to admit that for me there's no such thing as a quick card - you have no idea how much I faf about (technical term!)
I'll have to get that Christmas card counter updated too -I think I'm into double figures now - that's an achievement in itself 

Here's what I did...

Papers - Yuletide Greetings by Anna Griffin
Topper - from the Christmas Garland Embellishment set by Anna Griffin
Ribbon - Gold satin from carnmeal cottage
Card - Bazzill Basics

Challenges I'm entering with this card

Party time Tuesday - Anything Goes
The Cheerful stamp pad - use a sentiment
Crafting from the Heart - Anything goes
Completely Christmas - Anything Goes
Simon says - Anything Goes

Oh Wow!! I really love this card Judith… it's a fab design! I love the rich green with the gold… the sentiment toppers look so good together and the lush ribbon finishes it off beautifully!!
I really like all the no image cards… they are all so different!
Oh btw I'm a Faffer too!!! I'm worst with flowers... can spend literally hours putting them on and taking them off, and still not be happy with them and so usually take the whole lot off and have none at all !!!! Lol
Hope all is well with you
Love Sue xx
