First Everrrr

Good morning all, and a special hello to my new follower Karen, hope you are all managing to stay warm. Can't believe we've had some of the white fluffy stuff already, twas only a flutter but' it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas' excuse the pun and I sure am not ready! Why wasn't I born organised? I really tried, even making all the Christmas cards along the way, but forgot about the envelopes, and guess what, none of them fit.........
so off I went in search of some 8 x 8, can I find any, ho ho ho, no no no.
Think I'll just wrap them in nice Christmas paper that way they can thinks it's a pressie too hee hee!
Well my tumble dryer broke this week and I so need one for work so had to buy a new one, great.
Then Tuesday whislt I was out on my mobile run it was raining , so I had waited for it to ease off before making a dash for the car, which I did, only the flaming key wouldn't open the door and then the heavens opened......OMG you could have wrung me out lol.
Wonder what's next?
Well today sees the start of a new Challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and it's the turn of yours truly to host, my first everrrr, so maybe this is my 'what's next' I apologise in advance Ladies for if anything goes awry.
My theme I have chosen for this week is
 'One For The Boys'
because I don't do boys' cards and I needed at least one.
This weeks fab sponsor is

And here is mine

Check out my fab teamies cards, I love ' em
LOTV - Playing Guitar, coloured with copics and polychromos
