Merry Christmas

Good morning all.

We had a beautiful sunny day yesterday but very frosty and cold. More food shopping done with a trip to the local butchers and farm shop then a delivery from Tesco. No doubt the cupboards will be bare again in a day or two!

A quick Christmas card to share today, I think I may be making a few of these!


Die is from Poppy Stamps, cut from a white card stock snippet which I've stuck to another piece of card with some double sided tape. Some words are inlaid with green ones cut from snippets, the rest are glittered. Topper is attached to the card base with foam tape.
