Joy to the World

It's been a lovely mild day here although I've spent most of it trying to sort out lighting and floors for the kitchen. My new cooker and most of the units will arrive tomorrow thank goodness and hopefully be fitted. Unfortunately I'm having to wait until next week for my new fridge freezer but at least the old one is still working!
Had a great compliment today though - DD came home from school and said some of the kids had said the treats they'd got at our house last night were awesome - makes it worth the effort :)

My card today is "one I made earlier" lol

Made using a free decoupage and BP from a magazine. Everything matted onto silver glittery card.  Border punch from Martha Stewart. Finished with a ribbon.

Challenges entered:
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT - Christmas (non trad colours) and/or distressed
St Lukes Charity - Christmas
The Craft Garden - Christmas (no red/green)
