What's in the sack?

Morning girls
...from a dark, dull, dreary Glasgow.  Winter is here!!  Autumn seems to have passed us by altogether, no nice crisp mornings, just slap bang freezing rain and winds with a chill factor that feels like zero degrees:(  I'm going to hibernate in me little craft room all weekend and keep warm and snug.  
I may pop out on Saturday to watch that rubbish that is the X Factor though.  Fingers crossed that horrid Rylan with all his dramatics gets the boot this week.
Then again since I won the lovely Jacqui's candy I may just spend the day drooling over on Wild Orchid crafts and fill me basket.  Thanks so much Jacqui I'll enjoy spending:)
So onto my card for the day.  It's for the new challenge on Totally Papercrafts and the theme this week is


Is it really that close??  Eekkk I'd better get the shopping started. I've not a thing in yet:(

Our sponsor for this week is 
and here's my card
No, this is not for my hubby.  It's actually a commission so I killed two birds with one stone as the deets were to make it a 'wee bit raunchy'  

image - Kenny K
papers - First Edition
snowflake - Whimsy
border - Ribbons and Rosettes cart
ponsiettas - Joys of the Season cart
brad - WOC
stickles and white glitter to her cuffs
seeds beads and ribbon from me stash

I coloured her up with Flex markers.  The jury is till out on these I'm afraid.  I do like the ease of colouring with them but I don't find they blend as well as the copics and I find they have a tendancy to bleed but I shall keep at it with them.  Practice makes perfect as they say!
So, there's my effort for this week girls.  Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog, especially if you played along last week.  You could be the lucky winner of those fab digi's from Redonkulas:)
Happy crafting and have a smashing weekend.
