Good morning all.
A few jobs ticked off the list yesterday but no cleaning done!! Perhaps the fairies will pop in when I'm not looking....I can live in hope. Dr's appointment this morning then I must get to it!!

A birthday card to share today...I needed a few for December and this was quick and easy.

Love these vintage toppers from Kraftyhands. Paper and sentiment are also from Kraftyhands. Dies are from Spellbinders...told you you'd see a lot of them lol. A cute little double bow with a button attached finish the card off.
