Christmas in March at Sugar Nellie

1 down, about 50 to go!! I feel like I've only just finished making my cards from last Xmas, so I must admit my heart sank when I saw what the theme of the Sugar Bowl challenge was this time around. To be honest, getting all my cards ready in time last year was so stressful, I swore I would be more prepared this year. I must force myself to do about 2 a month & then I will only have another 30 or so make come December! That still sounds scary, LOL! There is not much to this one, Pip was coloured with watercolour pencils (for a change!). The paper & sentiment are by Imaginisce, though I think the sentiment looks a bit big. Ho hum, chalk it down to experience & do it better next time. Generally, as far as my cards go, I give the ones I don't like so much to people I'm not so bothered about or close to. Does that make me sound a bit of a cow, or does everyone else do that, but not admit to it?!! I think I quite like this one though. Despite it's faults, I would give this to one of my closer friends, mainly because little Pip is such a cutie. He reminds me of my boys when they were that age! Hope everyone out there is having a good start to the week, & if not I hope it gets a lot better very quickly!
