Miss December 2010

Ah my dear friends, do I have a treat for you this evening! 

First, by way of a short introduction, do you remember Miss Blackpool 1945?

And can you recall the amount of effort Maude put into looking so good?

Well, I'm pleased to announce that it all paid off because Maude Doodlebuns has been selected to star as 'Miss December 2010' in the latest Pirelli (Spare Tyre) Calendar!  How's about that for an old girl, eh?  And I was delighted when Maude sent me a copy of her starring moment:

Paper: Cosmo Cricket

Doesn't she look grand in her winter outfit?  Look at those beautiful ... features.  She is a vision in red, isn't she?  Bet Santa can't wait to fill her stockings!  (Oooo-err Missus!)

I just couldn't wait to play with this hilarious image.  As you can see above, I've developed something of a soft spot for Maude, she being such a glamour-puss and all, just like me! So I was delighted when Jak and the team released this bit of gorgeousness. 

There are some smashing new images over at Just Inklined, both Christmassy and otherwise, so why not check out the blog for some fabulous inspiration from my Teamies.

Right, bed time - late again!  It was my Dad's big birthday today (I'm not saying how old he is but he's got a year to go before he's 71!) so we've eaten late and I'm still stuffed so I don't know how much sleep I'll get, but my Kindle beckons in the meantime.

Happy crafting.
