Have a Merry Little Christmas!

Morning all!

Another week at work over with. I honestly don't know where the time is going. Can you believe its only 35 days until christmas, now that's a scary thought! I'm no where near prepared. Lots more christmas shopping to do, not to mention the wrapping of all the presents, making and writing of many many cards, baking of mince pies and decorating the house! Phew. But it'll all be worth it. I just LOVE christmas!

So what else could I show you today apart from another of my christmas card designs. Whilst I had out all my supplies I made 3 of these cards, I love doing this, it really builds up your card collection a lot more quickly which I've got to say is a plus when it comes to christmas cards!!

So without further ado here's today's offering....

and the simply decorated inside....


CS: SU Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Red CS from my stash

Images: Elzybells (Retired)

Sentiment: Paula Pascual Christmas Sentiments set

Tools: Old Olive, Choc Chip and Real red ink (SU), SU Polka Dot Background stamp (Retired)

Misc: Sponges for distressing, Red Gingham Ribbon from stash

I adore this cute little image. I couldn't resist buying him in the Elzybells closing down sale. Now I know of at least another 3 people who also adore him as they have already seen this card and that's my mum and her friend Elaine who were there when I made it, both of them said they would love to recieve this card for christmas. My hubbie to be also loves him, in fact it was he who said I should buy the stamp in the first place!

Well I'd best stop prattling on and get a move on. I need to go and do the weekly food shop quickly as my mum is coming over this afternoon and we're off to do a spot of christmas shopping!

I hope you all enjoy your weekend, whatever you're all up to, and thanks for stopping by to say hi!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
