Hello everyone, I'm so sorry that I have not been around but have been poorly since the weekend. I am having a really bad flare up of my RA at the moment and been in so much pain. All of my glands are up and my throat has been really sore too. To top it off where I am run down I have an outbreak of dermatitis on my face. Might as well stick a paper bag on my head now!!!. 

Anyway it's Friday and that means another challenge over at Polka Doodles. It was Ashley's turn to choose the theme and she wants a creation of your favourite holiday/occasion of the year ie, Christmas, Valentine's day, Halloween, Easter, Thanksgiving......Ashley has also added a twist which is to use the colour teal in your creation (this is optional though). 

My favourite has to be Christmas and this is what I created;

The yummy papers and the beautiful scene is from the new Picknix 2 Collection "Gingerbread Twist" CD. The sentiment is from the Here Comes Christmas CD. I have used Red Berry Doodle Dew Drops to decorate the tree and White Pom Pom Ribbon along the image. I used circular Nesties for the sentiment. 

I you fancy having a play along just pop over to the Polka Doodles challenge blog for more details. There are some awesome prizes to be won!!!.

Just want to remind you that there will be a show tomorrow on Create & Craft channel at 12 noon with Rosemary Merry for the launch of the new Studio 12 Picknix 2 "Gingerbread Twist" CD. Click HERE for more information. 

Hopefully in the next few days I will be feeling better and will get around to everyone's blogs. I'm so sorry for my lack of commenting. I really do appreciate all of your lovely messages and comments, they really do mean so much to me, especially when i'm not feeling too great.

Wishing you all a safe and wonderful weekend whatever you are doing.

Big hugs Clare xxx
