Fa la la laaaa

Good morning! Well that's January done already, it HAS flown by, can't say I'm sorry though, it's been a wet , windy and dreary month here. I shouldn't complain, at least we haven't had snow or floods... or fires. I am soooo looking forward to spring!
Over at Fab 'n' Funky we're looking even further forward with our first Christmas challenge of the's JFF, no sponsors and no prizes (badges for the top 3 though!) , anything goes as long as it;'s Christmas related.
My card is a mixture of old and new...the image is a Mo Manning stamp I've had for years, I coloured it up ages ago and never made it into a card, the Tim Holtz lamp post is probably just as old! The papers are new (to me anyway!) a sale bargain!
The Fab N Funky girls have made some beautiful cards to help kick start your creativity, just click  here to hop on over and take a look!
Thanks for visiting!

You have done a fabulous job colouring up that Mo MAnning image. I too like to have some images coloured up waiting to use. I sometimes get a side effect from my medication that causes swelling in my hands so unless i have some images tucked away, I then have to use dies only!

Your scene is lovely...really like that musical note die that is tucked behind the image.

Thanks for taking part in the January Rudolph Days Challenge.
