Dem Dry Bones

Sorry I've been MIA this week but those flu germs really got the better of me and on top of that I've had problems with my back again and so been unable to spend more than a few minutes at a time sitting over the computer. I'm beginning to move a bit better now so fingers crossed will be able to get round to visit you over the weekend.

Anyways I actually made a christmas card today and methinks I shall be mass producing this design. I had a digi insert from Cuddly Buddly printed off and lying in a box so when I was looking for some red designer paper it was crying to be used up. I know it isn't a christmassy one but I think it works perfectly with this LOTV topper. The sentiment is one I recycled from an old card and the gingham ribbon I used for the bow is from my stash. The great thing about this is that it looks 'layered' but is flat so will be perfect for posting.


I shall enter this in the following challenges
Lili of the Valley Monthly challenge 'Name that tune' (my 4th entry as it's such a great theme)  
the first song title that came to mind was 'Given the dog a bone' by AC/DC as they were the only words I knew of the song but on checking the lyrics I decided it best to stick to a more child friendly tune that also came to mind called 'Dem Dry Bones'
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'Christmas love'
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'Colour challenge - Red'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'The most wonderful time of the year'
Lexi's Creations challenge 'Monochromatic'
Sparkles Christmas challenge 'Anything goes christmas + blog hop'

Thanks for popping by and I hope you all have a great weekend
