Seasons Greetings at Fab'n' Funky

 Good morning, hope everyone is having a good week so far. It's been a busy one for me- my brother moved into his new home on Monday so I've been cleaning out cupboards and unpacking boxes and boxes of his belongings. He moved from the house where we all grew up, a big house with large rooms to a newer, much smaller house - far easier to maintain and perfect for him as he lives on his own now. He got rid of so much furniture and stuff but it was amazing how much he still had- I think he's going to have be more ruthless than he already has been, it's really difficult to judge what you need before you move in! It's looking good in the new house now though, only boxes in the spare bedroom left to unpack! I'm sure he's going to be very comfortable and happy there.

Todays card is for our new challenge at Fab'n' Funky  The theme for this fortnight is 'Seasons Greetings' chosen by Buffy. I made a CAS Christmas card using a cute image and sentiment from Mo Manning. I coloured the little elf with Copic markers matted it onto dark red card and a kraft card base...and that's it really! 

For more inspiration from the Fab'n' Funky girls hop over to the Challenge Blog, we'd love to have you play along this fortnight.

Thanks for visiting

Moving is a thankless job, but sounds like it will be far more manageable for him. There's a look on that little one that makes you wonder what he's going to get up to.

what a beautiful image and colouring, it's hard work moving and finding places for everything, he needs to settle in before deciding what to keep or what to part with I think lol xx
