A Sit Down. At Last

Hello.

I hope you had a good day yesterday. Santa certainly did and now he's enjoying a well earned rest! I didn't manage to share all of the cards I made this year (why change the habit of a lifetime), but like Santa I'm going to have some time off and I'll see you in January! 

Let's hope 2021 is kinder than 2020. Thank you for all your love and support through this year and for all of your comments.  I appreciate each and every one.

Merry Christmas

Hello and Merry Christmas.

These seemed appropriate cards to share today.  This may not be the Christmas we all wanted but let's hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel. And there is light.  He is the light of the world.

More Last Minute

Hello.

I think I have finished my cards.... of course, it did take me a while to actually get round to sending them so I've no idea if anyone will get them before Christmas.

A Christmas Gnome. Or Two.

You know I love a gnome, but not as much as Cass does! So this was her Christmas card.  Love these wee gnomes from Sweet November and I just had to buy the tree too to just finish the card off!

Hippo Christmas

Hello.

Another of my "leftover" cards.  That Doodlebug paper has been in my stash for years and I've used it a lot this year.  However, it fell down the back of the shelves and has vanished.  Believe me, I've had everything out looking for it but it has completely disappeared.

Tiered Tray

Hello.

Something a little different today.  This is my Christmas tiered tray.  It started with getting the marshmallow mug from the lovely Karen at Sugar Nellie and it progressed from there.  

I'd really like to do another now, but not sure what to do.  You'll see Wee Gnome has found his spot!

Christmas Jumpers!

Hello.

It's Christmas jumper day at school today and although I've been wearing festive attire for the last 11 days someone isn't going to school wearing a Christmas jumper.  Wonder why ;) 

So let's make do with this little dude wearing his Christmas jumper.
