Kat Mandu & Friends

Wow can you believe it is nearly the end of the year. Eeeeekkkk....!!!!! Christmas is well and truly on it's way and you can certainly tell with all the gorgeous decorations up in the shops.

Over at Simply Betty Stamps we have a wonderful new release for you called 'Kat Mandu & Friends'. The gorgeous talented Gretchen Flores who designed the fabulous Victorian Beauties also created these super cool images. You must check out the Simply Betty Challenges blog for the DT's inspiring creations.

I have used Charlie.
The DP used on this card is from Simply Betty Stamps also. It is the Echo Park Everybody Loves Christmas range - this is called Trimming the Tree.

Now I absolutely love Christmas as I get to spend time with my family who live so far away. I wish they were all so much closer but not to be. My IL's on the other hand pretty much live just around the corner (so to speak) and we see very little of them. Wish they wanted to spend more time with the kids mostly but hey they are divorced and my FIL remarried. Anyway. My whinge.

Christmas presents all purchased and I am not going to the shops for the rest of the month. OMG how crazy is it. Impossible to get a park and people everywhere. Like how much shopping can you possibly do. Like it is always packed - there are not that many people in this area. I don't get it. I am in and out with what I went in to get and don't go back again. Oh well. The kids will be super happy with their presents at least. LOL.

Hi Tracey

What a great card, such a fun image. It really reminds me of my middle boy, soon as something is the slightest bit tricky and he has to concentrate, out comes that tongue, lol.

Your colouring looks fabulous.

Michelle :-)

Ohh how adorable is he! Love the colors!

know what you men about useless family who don't want to spend time with your kids! We have the same whinge, their loss I say!

Too cute Tracey!! Love the colors you used on him!! I can't believe you are done Christmas shopping!!! I really haven't even started but they are not getting a lot this year as money us a lot tighter this year. Plus a week later they forget the toys they got or they get broke and end up in the trash. My oldest one is easy as she will be 17 next month and all she wants is the money.
