Victorian Red riding hood - Centre Step Card

Well a Top of the morning to you all!  Pretty early may I say but yet again another sleepless night and things on my mind so I decided to craft and colour once again lol.

Thank you all so much for your comments on my posts and your time in doing so.  Without you all I wouldn't be here doing what I do.  Ive gone from strength from strength since starting on this blog.  In the beginning I didn't think my cards were good enough to do anything never mind enter challenges or even be a DT member.   The confidence you have all gave me has made me who I am Today.  For that i thank you all!

I also want to welcome my New followers.  Thank you for your time in following my blog.

Im starting to panic with Christmas now lol.  Finances and time has now got to me and I have two boys to buy for.  Ive bought a few bits but as a mother I dont think its enough.  I love giving and seeing my boys faces on Christmas morning.  I miss it when they were younger though, the excitement of father Christmas coming and the sneaking around at night lol.... Even now I still put out mince pies and milk for Father Christmas lol....

Anyway on to my card today. This is a Birthday Card for my sister in law.  Appropriate for her Birthday in December with the colour red too.  I love this colour it is so rich.  The card is a Centre Step Card which I think is a great card to showcase your image and bring it to life.  The Digi stamp I have used today is from Sassy Studios.  There are links for Sassy Studios in my previous posts.  She is called Victorian holiday , she has another name but I really cant remember it.  If i remember I will edit the post.
