The jury is still out....

on the haircut!

Hello blogworld

Am I the only person in the world who stresses about their haircut?  It's been a week now and I'm still not sure I like it, especially as me and hubby had words about it, or, to be more accurate, how it makes me look!  I decided, since the little make up session the other week, that I would try new make-up and, with the haircut, he decided that I now look like Theresa May (the Home Secretary!).  I don't know do I really want a haircut that, so hubby says, makes me look like someone probably 20 years older than me (don't know that for sure, but I'm guessing here!) - if I feel brave enough I may post a picture and you can tell me what you all think.

But enough of my waffle, onto the card (I know it's a Christmas card, and I still don't feel Christmassy, but I wanted to use one of the TeddyBo images that I won the other week - so here I am):
Front shot:

Detail of image:

I used:
Teddybo & Co digi image: Teddybea_116 'Your wish will come true', coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
Die-cut and matted with nesties.
The papers are from Craft House - Winter Wonderland.
Wild Orchid Crafts for the flowers.
Card blank, sentiment: from Craftwork Cards (again mounted onto a nestie shape)

So I hope everyone is well and I'll be back tomorrow with my DT for Sweet Stampin'.  It's a good one, so be sure to pop back.



A challenge, or two,:

Sketch Saturday - Week #181 - 12th November

The Cutie Pie Challenge - #5 - Bears

The TeddyBo Challenge - #22 - Christmas (but red and green should not be seen) - Ladies, there is green in my image and papers, but I'm hoping it's not Christmas green!!

What a gorjuss card Hun. I love the colours you have used. Think I need to make a pink n blue card. They are a very popular colour combo for this challenge. Thanks for joining in on our Teddy Bo challenge.

Fab card Sarah, lovely papers and great colouring.
Aren't hubbies lovely!! Why cant they just give a compliment and make us happy, I have never cut my hair short since the last time 11 years ago, just after Charlie was born and my OH mumped and moaned for ages about it, but I just think 'hey, its not you who has to wash it, dry it and maintain it everyday' (for the record my hubby is almost bald!)
Hope your hair cut grows on you.
Love and hugs Kat xx
Ps Ive got blog candy up for grabs

Beautiful card Sarah... and ignore your hubby... they never know what to say about a haircut... my OH said something negative about mine when I last had it done... only 'ohhh you've had it done differently'' but in a tone that I picked up on...
As long as YOU like it!

OOohh this is so sweet! I love the colours you have used and the dies are the perfect frame! I know how you feel about getting used to a new hair cut... how come it never ever looks like it did when you walk out of the salon?
