Merry Christmas

Good morning all.

I had a lovely long lunch yesterday with my friend, which ended in an impromptu singsong with the four older gents on the table next to us...it was so funny! Luckily my friends husband didn't arrive to pick us up until 5 minutes after the gents left otherwise he may have turned around and left us there!

Another Christmas card today....I think this is the penultimate one.

Sentiment die from Poppy Stamps, die cut with a Spellbinders die and filled with glitter!!! Who's idea this was I'll never know...I really should throw out all my loose glitter as I hate the stuff with a vengeance! Me and the dust are sparkling now.

  1. So much entertainment at this time of the year Carol again your card is gorgeous .....enjoy your day xx

  2. ...and how pretty you and your room must look with a dusting of glitter, lol. I always walk around sparkling when I've finished in my craft room and often get told I have glitter on my face at the supermarket and the like :)

  3. Gorgeous card and so happy you had a lovely day yesterday. Everybody enjoys a singalong.
