First I took a plain white square card blank and stamped a marianne designs sentiment all over the front in red prettycolour ink. I then took two triangles of Helz Cuppleditch Christmas music paper for the corners and added white glitter ribbon strips over the joins.
Snoopy was mounted onto a Marianne designs backing paper and attached to the base using foam pads. To finish a jingle bell and some gems were added.
This card used Sketchy Colours sketch #237

Audio Book Review
Torchwood Department X
I have never watched this television series previously and would still like to, so when I saw the audio book in the library I decided to give it a go, although I was a little disappointed to see it was only two discs. Having never seen his before, so not having a brilliant idea of what was going to happen, it did take a little while to place everybody. However, this does occur regularly throughout books and so was not a problem for listening to the book – it just kept you wondering. It is a little far-fetched, but obviously so and as such makes a very captivating and sometimes humourous read. Definitely worth the couple of hours that the audio book lasts.
Thank you for looking - now to get on with some more calenders!!
