Bringing you Best Wishes

I have a lightening fast post today, it is in fact tomorrow... just ticked by midnight!  
I am so busy I can't even think straight.  Not only is it Christmas (no, really?!) but it is my sister's birthday on Wednesday and I thought that as it's not until Wednesday I could do a bit of card making & gift making/wrapping on, oh I don't know, Tuesday night?  Well, she's up and decided to go away to "the block" (their retirement project in the making) on SUNDAY, so I've had to fast track the choccie making, and gift wrapping and I'll have to race out and buy her "extra" Christmas gifts in the morning.
  I don't know if I'll even get to make a card for her, she'll have to get one from my stash, as on top of that one of my son's good friends had a baby on Thursday and he's going to see her...you guessed it, on Sunday, and I don't even have one baby card in my stash, so that's going to have to take priority.  We can add to the mix the fact that one of the companies we work with is putting on a work "do" tomorrow evening (so that's out crafting wise) and being the organized creature I am (?) I didn't decide to book the hairdresser until today and had to take the last appointment available, which is at 1.30pm slap bang in the middle of the day, just enough to break my shopping, wrapping, stressing rhythm, lol  It's nice to be invited to something like that though, and quite flattering as we are the only contractors invited... and last year the food was extraordinary; beautiful, dainty and delicious.
Anyway, deep breath, my card today features another of the digi stamps in review at All That Scraps; this is Winter Darby and her little friend Pudge, also on the scene is Juniper which is from the Penelope and Juniper stamp.  Don't forget that there is a DT call on for the digi team, you've only got a few hours left, so what are you waiting for? 
The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches and they have a twist: a Bingo board, I've used Funky Colours, Embossing and Snowflakes.  The only embossing on it IS the snowflake, but that counts!!
I used digi paper from Nitwits Joyful Hearts Too, with the colour tweaked a little, ribbon from my stash and gold mirror card.  A couple of tiny buttons and a snowflake (blinged up with Iridescent Sparkle EP, of course!) Stickles on the snow and a sentiment made on the computer and, tada that's it!
I don't like to list challenges I'm entering, but unfortunately time is against me so, a list it is!
I am entering in the following challenges (if I get time to link up, of course!)

I'll be back tomorrow (time permitting, again!) with a DT card for Sweet Stampin'.  It's a cutie, I can't wait to share it.  Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
