Creative Inspirations Contemporary Xmas colours

Morning everyone!
Yes I am here honest! No sooner had I got hubby back to work that I had sick kiddies! I do slightly despair with doctors sometimes though. Hubby took Caleb to the out of hours service whilst I was at work on sunday only to be told that he had a cold and allergies and that we just needed to give him his inhaler more frequently. When I came home in the afternoon he was raging hot (39.3) he refused to eat or have lights on as it hurt his eyes and he just slept as much as possible! Allergies I think not! Monday he was sick a few times and his temp was still high but by Tues eve he managed to find his appetite and as started to get better (phew!) but so much for the doctors diagnosis!
Anyway that's a little about our family stresses and one of my reasons for such pityful blogging and crafting!
I have made a card for todays challenge over at Creative Inspirations, I do feel a bit of a lack of mojo though so need to hunt under some papers and stamps to find it! Our challenge is to use contemporary Xmas colours so no traditional reds or greens here.
We are sponsored by Stamp fairy who provided the DT with images to use..
I have used papers from a kaisercraft pack that I got free with an issue of simply cards and papercrafts. My flowers and jute are from WOC, my butterfly little snippets and my sentiment LOTV.
My image from Stamp fairy has been coloured with prisma pencils and I have added some stickles for the sparkly snow.
And I also had a lovely surprise over the weekend when the lovely Sarah e mailed me to say she thought she had seen my cards on Create & Craft TV! So I watched the segment on Little darlings stamps and what did I see?!!!!
Yes this was me taking a photo of the TV!!! My cards are the pink one on the bottom left and the bottom right one with the banners, these were my Saturated canary CHA samples which I have blogged before so you may recognize them! Ooo look at me all famous on the TV lol!
Thanks for sticking by me during this sporadic time of blogging! I do hope to find some time to get by some of your blogs to see your lovely creations soon!
Big hugs
