All I want for christmas!

Evening all. Sorry this post is a bit late in the day and I ahve been AWOL for a few days. I did hope to post this last night when I got in from a girly night out at the cinema. Unfortunately all did not go to plan as I was involved in a car accident on the way home! I was hit from behind by a van at some traffic lights! Luckily I only have a slighly sore back and a bruised sternum. Most of the damage was absorbed by the car, which is now residing in the garage waiting to get fixed. Overall not a very pleasant experience {my first in 13 years of driving}, I'm just thankful I'm ok as it could have been so much worse! I also tried posting this morning but blogger was being naughty and wouldn't le me on or look at anyone's blogs! So tonight it had to be!! Better late than never hey!

Anyhow onto today's card. No challenges or LO's used for this card, just another 'just because card' for my christmas box. I have used another of the gorgeous country cousin christmas stamps from Sugar Nellie. Isn't he such a cutie with his little list for santa! Such a crisp image and so easy to colour!


Image: Santa's letter from Sugar Nellie available here at funky kits

Paper: We Are Memory Keepers, DCWV Christmas stack


Sentiment: Rub on from stash

Misc: Red dew drops from stash, Snowtex

Well that's all from me tonight. I have a relaxing evening filled with TV and chocolate planned! I am also going to be at Stamp Magic at The Dome in Doncaster on sunday so if anyone else is going to be there let me know, it would be lovely to say hi!

Thanks for stopping by to say hello and I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
