Nativity an award and a candy update!

I made this card for my friends little boy, Isaac. I thought this cute nativity image by Sally-Ann was perfect for a card for a little boy.

I'm joining these challenges:
I also got this fab award off Sara. Thanks Sara. The award comes with a few rules:

1. Copy this award to your blog
2. Link to the person who gave you this award
3. Identify 7 interesting facts about yourself
4. Choose 7 other bloggers to pass this award on to
5. Link to their blogs
6. Leave them a comment to let them know about this award

So seven things about me.....
  1. I'm so cold today I have my little slippers on with a big fluffy pom pom on the toes - another example of me acting my shoe size not my age
  2. I went to the film premiere and party for Monsters inc and had a very big cuddle with James P Sullivan - he stank of garlic, quite apt for a monster! (see photo below). I sat next to Brian who was well known for being in Big Brother at the time.
  3. I can't stand celery - urgh
  4. My first ever job was working in a souvenir shop in Buxton when I was probably too young to be working
  5. I get down on the carpet and do 'yogo' with Zac every morning whilst we watch Waybuloo on CBEEBIES!
  6. I haven't made my Christmas cards yet - eeek!
  7. I love rainbows - they always make me smile
And I'm passing this on to: Lynn, Louise, Katie, Penni, Jo, Chrissie and Steph.

Finally an update on my charity candy. Hopefully I have now received all the cards and gifts to be passed on to SANDs. I will be checking them off against Mr Linky over the weekend and will be announcing the winner early next week - watch this space!
